Dina Lohan, 50, was arrested yesterday in New York and charged with DWI, after a breath test revealed her blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit, ABC News confirms.
New York State Police observed the mother of actress Lindsay Lohan at around 11 p.m. driving at "a speed of 77 mph in a 55 mph zone," according to a police press release.
Lohan was pulled over in her white BMW and blew a .20, more than twice the legal limit of .08 percent alcohol concentration.
After being taken to Farmingdale, on Long Island, for processing, Lohan told police she was injured during the arrest and was evaluated by medics.
"When emergency personnel arrived and evaluated Lohan, there were no injuries and she recanted her claim," the release continued.
Lohan was issued traffic tickets for the two DWI offenses and speeding.
"She was later released to a sober third party and is scheduled to appear in Nassau County1st District Court on September 24 at 9 am," the release added.
This arrest comes less than two months after her daughter, 27, finished her three-month stint in court-ordered rehab.
Lindsay Lohan checked out of Cliffside Malibu at the end of July. The "Mean Girls" actress went to rehab as part of a plea deal stemming from a June 2012 traffic case, where she pleaded no contest to reckless driving and lying to police.
