Lohan Jailed for Second Time in a Week

Already facing a drunken driving charge in Beverly Hills, Lohan was arrested early July 24 by Santa Monica (Calif.) Police while chasing the mother of her personal assistant, who had quit her job with Lohan hours earlier.

The 21-year-old actress was charged with suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, possession of cocaine and driving on a suspended license. Just five days prior, Lohan was booked into the Beverly Hills jail from a May drunken driving charge and misdemeanor hit and run. That jail stay lasted 45 minutes when she posted a $30,000 bond.

Blood Test Reveals .12 and .13 Readings

Police smelled alcohol on Lohan at the scene but she refused to blow into a Breathalyzer machine. After a series of field sobriety tests, she was taken into custody, where her blood test revealed .12 and .13 blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) levels. The legal BAC limit in California is .08. Lohan was released from custody after posting a $25,000 bond.

Earlier this summer, Lohan had checked into a substance abuse center for the second time this year. In January, she was admitted to another substance abuse center.

Appearance on The Tonight Show is Cancelled

Lohan was scheduled to be on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" the same day of her arrest to promote her film "I Know Who Killed Me," but has since nixed the appearance. The film is scheduled for release July 27. Her attorney, Blair Berk said her client had relapsed and was again receiving medical care.
