Lindsay Lohan Enters Rehab After Her Accident
Plus: Cannes Festival wraps up and Mexicans Carlos Reygadas and Elisa Miller take home awards
LINDSAY IS IN AN ACCIDENT… AND IN REHAB
Lindsay Lohan was admitted to a hospital and later arrested after a car accident on Saturday morning, May 26th, People.com reported.
And now, three days after being cited for driving under the influence, the actress has checked into rehab, her rep confirmed to People.com.
This is the second time this year that Lohan has been in a treatment facility. Her first stay, at the Wonderland Center in West Hollywood, started on January 17th.
The actress, 20, had crashed her Mercedes Benz SL-65 convertible in the area known as Century City in Los Angeles, CA, after leaving Les Deux restaurant and club, in Hollywood, where Paris Hilton had also been hanging out.
Lohan, who left the scene of the accident, luckily did not suffer serious injuries, even though police described the damage to her car as “major.”
Lohan, who is also a singer, was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, a misdemeanor, police said. But People.com reports that police also found a substance tentatively identified as “a usable amount of cocaine” in connection with the accident, which could lead to the filing of more charges against her in coming days.
CANNES JURY HONORS A MEXICAN FOR THE FIRST TIME
