Lohan’s mom faces DUI charge

FARMINGDALE, N.Y.

Lindsay Lohan’s mother is facing an aggravated-drunken-driving charge in New York after a traffic stop on Long Island.

State police say Dina Lohan, 50, was stopped on the Northern State Parkway in Nassau County at 11 p.m. Thursday after troopers clocked her driving a BMW at 77 mph in a 55-mph zone.

She took a breath test that pegged her blood-alcohol level at 0.20 percent, police said. That’s more than twice New York’s legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Lohan was brought to a state police barracks in Farmingdale, issued tickets for driving while intoxicated and speeding and then released to a “sober third party,” state police said in a news release. She is due in court Sept. 24.

NBA’s Odom charged with DUI

LOS ANGELES

Basketball star Lamar Odom has been charged with a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence, nearly two weeks after his Mercedes-Benz was pulled over on a Southern California freeway.

The Los Angeles city attorney’s office said Friday that the charges stem from Odom’s Aug. 30 arrest in the San Fernando Valley.

The husband of reality-TV star Khloe Kardashian was taken into custody after a sobriety test. The California Highway Patrol said Odom’s car was observed traveling in a “serpentine manner.”

The 33-year-old Odom could face six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.

Pia Zadora ordered to counseling

LAS VEGAS

A judge Thursday ordered singer-actress Pia Zadora to complete alcohol and impulse-control counseling.

The entertainer, whose career peaked in the 1980s, was arrested in May after police say she sprayed her teenage son with a hose in an attempt to get him to go to bed.

A Las Vegas judge told Zadora that she’ll face 30 days in jail if she fails to seek help, the Las Vegas Sun reported.

Zadora was charged with domestic abuse and coercion after a disturbance that began with her attempt to hustle the 16-year-old boy to bed so she could get some rest.

Police reports say the one-time blond bombshell turned a watering hose on her son and tried to rip the phone from his hands when he called 911.
