Lohan held over 'drink driving'

Lohan has developed a reputation as a party girl
Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving, police have said.

The 20-year-old was treated for minor injuries after losing control of the Mercedes she was driving and hitting a kerb, Beverly Hills police confirmed.

A small "usable" amount of a substance thought to be cocaine was also found in the car during a search, they added.

The actress, who spent time in a rehabilitation centre in January, was arrested but not held in custody.

Instead she was transferred to a hospital to receive treatment for minor injuries.

Two other people were also in the car with Lohan when the incident occurred, though no other vehicles were involved, police said.

Party girl

Lohan, who has starred in films including Mean Girls and The Parent Trap, admitted in December that she had been attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

Her frequent partying and drunken exits from nightclubs were a fixture of tabloid newspapers in 2006.

In July, Morgan Creek Productions chief executive James G Robinson sent a letter to the actress rebuking her for arriving late on set for the film Georgia Rule, suggesting "heavy partying" was to blame.

She later admitted she was worried by her portrayal in the press.
