As we reported earlier this week, Lohan was arrested yet again Wednesday night for allegedly punching Tiffany Mitchell in the face. There were two basic descriptions of the exact incident:
—According to Tiffany, who is a well-known psychic, she and her friend approached Lindsay to tell her about a premonition. Tiffany backed away when Lindsay asked her to “give [her] space”, but when the 26-year-old called her a “f**king Gypsy”, Tiffany’s friend snapped and called Lohan a “whore” and said that “Liz & Dick sucked.” Lindsay then threw the punch.
–Other sources contest that Lindsay actually snapped over Tiffany getting close to “The Wanted” bandmate Max George. Lindsay and the band met up after they opened for Justin Bieber at Madison Square Garden earlier in the night, but apparently, Lindsay was so drunk, it turned Max off, and he started talking to other women, including Tiffany. (Despite Lindsay’s troubles, Max ended up heading home with yet another woman…)
Then, there is also the issue of Lindsay’s soberness. The morning after the incident, Lindsay’s lawyer was adamant in saying that his client was clean, sober and completely coherent when he spoke to her earlier in the day, and she had not been drinking at all leading up to the arrest. On the other hand, sources are telling TMZ that Lindsay has been so stressed with her financial issues and career that she has been drinking up to two bottles of vodka a day, from morning till night.
Whatever the case may be, this arrest is a massive blow to the clean track Lindsay was trying to make for herself. Tiffany has officially hired star lawyer Gloria Allred to press charges, and in a case of perfect timing, three new criminal charges were just filed in connection with Lindsay’s car accident last June on the Pacific Coast Highway. (Lindsay allegedly lied to police, telling them that she wasn’t driving when her Porsche slammed into the back of a big rig.) These charges include:
— giving false information to a peace officer … punishable by up to 6 months in jail.
— obstructing or resisting a police officer in the performance of his duty … punishable by 1 year in jail.
— reckless driving … punishable by 90 days in jail.
Lindsay will be arraigned in L.A. probably next week, and only time will tell if she will serve any real jail time for violating probation, and if good behavior (or attempted good behavior) will play any part in the decision.
And that, my friends, is one week in the life of Lindsay Lohan.
