Lohan charged with crimes

Lindsay Lohan has been charged with crimes in Ny and La, marking her latest setbacks as she tries to regenerate her career and prevent a go back to jail.

Prosecutors in Santa Monica charged Lohan with three misdemeanours linked to a June accident. Hours earlier in the day, the actress was arrested and charged with third-degree assault, also a misdemeanour, following a woman was punched in a fresh York City nightclub.

The California charges came into being half a year after Lohan’s Porsche crashed in to the right back of a dump truck. She told police her assistant was driving, but detectives now believe the actress was when driving as she headed to a movie set.

If so, Lohan, 26, was charged with lying to police, reckless driving and obstructing a officer from performing duties.

Lohan’s California lawyer, Shawn Holley, said she cannot touch upon the crash-related charges.

In Ny, her lawyer Mark Heller said that he expects the assault charge to be dismissed.
