Lindsay Lohan Formally Arrested For DUI

Lindsay Lohan Formally Arrested For DUILindsay Lohan surrendered to police yesterday to be formally booked on misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence and hit-and-run stemming from a car crash in May.


Lindsay arrived at a Beverly Hills station at 4.15pm accompanied by her attorney and was later released on $30,000 bail, according to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.


The recently rehabbed actress crashed her Mercedes-Benz convertible into a curb in the early hours of May 26, after partying at Hollywood nightspot Les Deux.


Tests revealed that Lindsay had cocaine and nearly twice the legal amount of alcohol in her system. Police also found "a usable amount" of cocaine in her car.

Lindsay was booked now because she was only cited – not formally arrested – at the time of the incident, reports PEOPLE.

Lindsay is due to appear in Superior Court in Beverly Hills on August 24.
