'Drink-driving' arrest for Lohan
Lindsay Lohan
Lohan already faces a drink-drive charge in Beverly Hills
US actress Lindsay Lohan has been arrested on suspicion of drink-driving and possession of cocaine after spending a second stint in rehab.

The 21-year-old star was pulled over by officers in Santa Monica, California. She already faces a drink-driving charge in Beverly Hills.

Ms Lohan was also charged for driving while her licence was suspended, Santa Monica police said.

The actress's publicist was not available for comment.

In December Ms Lohan admitted she had been attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings for a year. A few weeks later she checked herself into a treatment centre, saying she had made a "proactive decision" to "take care" of her health.

In May she was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving after she was involved in a car accident in Beverly Hills.

Ms Lohan then returned to rehab and has recently been photographed wearing an alcohol tag, which was reportedly monitoring her alcohol consumption.

The actress hit the big time aged 11 in The Parent Trap. She has also starred in films like Freaky Friday, Mean Girls and A Prairie Home Companion.
