Lindsay Lohan's mother has been arrested for speeding and DWI [Driving While Intoxicated].
Dina, 50, was pulled over on Tuesday night after she was allegedly driving over the speed limit. According to New York State Police, the 27-year-old actress' mother was arrested driving at "a speed of 77 mph in a 55mph zone." Meanwhile, TMZ have reported her blood alcohol level was .2, more than twice the legal limit of .08.
"Lohan made an allegation that she was injured during the course of the arrest," officials told the gossip site. However, they added Dina "recanted her claim" once medical personnel arrived at the scene and determined she was fine.
She was later released to a sober third party - the site notes it wasn't her daughter - and she will appear in court later this month.

The reality TV star - who has two-year-old twins, Bob and Max, with the former Two and a Half Men actor - was arrested in Aspen, Colorado on Friday after being found in possession of a large amount of cocaine. A spokesman for the City of Aspen and Pitkin County Police said, "Officers with the Aspen Police Department were on a routine walk through when they contacted a woman who reported an assault which had taken place. The woman identified Brooke Mueller as the aggressor. Mueller was arrested and charged with assault in the third degree and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute."
If she is found guilty in the drug charge, Brooke - who has battled drink and drug addictions in the past and has received treatment in rehab - could face up to six years in prison.

Brooke has now been released after posting her $11,000 but must return for a District Court hearing on December 19.
