Do police often waste this much time and resources on such petty things with ordinary people? Just take her license away for a few years, and be done with it.

This may very well be the biggest non-story about Lindsay ever. Just sayin'. Not even feeling the schadenfruede here. 'Police ALMOST CHARGED HER WITH DRUG CRIMES!!!one! ...till her lawyer provided ther prescription.' She may very well be abusing pills, lot of people who take them end up doing so, but it's still pretty much a non-story. Over-powered car gets into car accident, shocking film at 11.

Meh. If it screws her probation, well, sucks to be her. If they wanted to they could have farked her either way on this one, though. No matter whether she's abusing the pills or not, that she got in an accident while driving was enough that they could have brought her up on charges. If it's opiates and she tried to get clean with methadone they could have charged her with one of the Driving under the influence charges then, too. Lying was still stupid, never say anything especially if you can afford a lawyer, but really, fark it. If they wanted to fark with her, she was screwed regardless.

Of which she will serve .001% of the actual sentence because she's a celebrity. Seriously - why do they even bother arresting her?

Worked well with Amanda Bynes (ok, so hers was suspended... close enough).

Some officers still believe in justice.

I think the penalty for celebrities who repeatedly break the law should be sterilization. Let them destroy themselves, but don't let them have children who will become rich, entitled, famous snots just by the luck of having been born to the right mother.

We have enough legacy actors and actresses. We have enough heiress debutante party-girls. We have enough talentless-yet-forced-upon-us offspring of deluded actors.

Ordinary people would have been arrested the very day they lied to the cop about not being the driver, not weeks or months later.

Hang on a moment. If telling the cops "I didn't do it", when it turns out you did, is now grounds for prosecution...

Then why isn't every convicted felon who pleaded "not guilty" charged with obstructing justice for lying about their guilt to the cops, and contempt of court for lying to the court?

Meh.

Look at that. A junkie. I got a farkin' junkie for a wife. She don't eat nothing. Sleeps all day with them black shades on. Wakes up with a Quaalude, and who won't fark me 'cause she's in a coma. I can't even have a kid with her, Manny. Her womb is so polluted, I can't even have a farkin' little baby with her!

TMZ was the first to break the story that Michael Jackson was dead if I remember correctly.

No. "Ordinary people" would have been sitting in a jail cell for 20 days (or whatever the standard obstruction penalty is) basically the moment they verifiably lied to a cop, without anything approaching this level of lawyer-fighting.

Hell, for someone already on probation it wouldn't take the judge five minutes to send you up the river, much less several months.

Eh, it's not quite the same thing. They asked her a specific question in investigation of a potential crime and she lied in answering it. A misdemeanor seems about right in my opinion. "Screw you, talk to my lawyer" or the truth would have both been acceptable answers. Lying when asked if she was the driver, even though they could charge her with DUI whether or not her prescription actually had anything to do with the accident, is not an acceptable choice.
 
2012-11-06 01:11:47 PM
My God! With those charges, she could be in jail for tens of minutes!

When you falsely accuse someone else of something to defend yourself, that is always a problem. If she'd just clammed up to the cops, she'd be fine, but she accused her passenger of driving and causing the accident to get out of a DUI, I suppose. I don't know why she'd make up such a tale if there wasn't more than a traffic ticket on the line, other than she appears to be a crazy pill-head.
 
2012-11-06 01:13:03 PM
How terrible for her. She might have to spend two whole days in jail! That ought to straighten her out.

She may very well be a crazy pill-head, but she doesn't have to be. Even if she isn't abusing her prescription at all, if they're narcotics, even low dosage, and even if she was found not at fault on the accident, the cops could charge her with a DUI and screw her probation. But you're right, just shutting the hell up would have been the far better choice.

When you lie to a cop you are interfering with an investigation. That is a crime. When you plead 'Not Guilty' you are saying that as far as you believe, you are not guilty of the crime or crimes that you have been charged with. Now, if you lie under oath, that is a crime.

As far as why it's not a crime to say 'not guilty', think of it this way:

Joe and Bob are at a party. Joe brings muffins containing peanuts. Bob is deathly allergic to peanuts. Joe doesn't know about Bob's allergy, Bob doesn't know about the peanuts in the muffins, and Bob doesn't ask. Bob eats a muffin and falls down dead. If Joe gets arrested and goes to court and it charged with murder, he can plead 'Not Guilty' and not be lying because it wasn't murder, it was negligence.

Same situation, only Joe knows about Bob's peanut allergy and still bakes muffins with peanuts, never warns Bob and Bob eats one. Joe can still say 'Not Guilty' to the murder charge because it's manslaughter.

Now, same situation, only instead of peanuts it's poison. Joe can still say 'Not Guilty' to the murder charge because it's the state's job to prove guilt.

Never, because she never had the right mother either. She's just doing what she's learned how to do her whole life. And her parents are still right there encouraging her.

abhorrent1: Lock this farking biatch up already. People have received multiple year sentences for a lot less than she has done.


And people who don't have her money have walked after doing a lot more. Hundreds if not thousands of people get shuffled through the justice system on a regular basis, sometimes because it's not worth the cost, sometimes it's just a decision based on the danger the individual represents, sometimes it's probably just luck of the draw. Most of this sort of commentary just seems like someone screaming for blood at an execution to me.

LowbrowDeluxe: But you're right, just shutting the hell up would have been the far better choice.


Shutting the hell up is always the right choice, when it comes to dealing with the police (assuming any danger has subsided). I'm not a cop hater, but my faith in their powers of recall and integrity were shattered the moment that one perjured himself (for no good reason whatsoever) against me in court.

You're not going to benefit from blabbing to the police.

This.

You can tell the truth or you can STFU and be just fine but lying to the police like she did has only been a crime for a couple hundred years or so. In most states, it is a misdemeanor but lie to a federal law enforcement officer and you're doing 5 years for obstruction.

In this case, she lied because a DUI could get her probation revoked. If the truck driver would have gone along with the plan, it would have worked. Now her probation's getting revoked AND she's getting an obstruction charge.

It will never occur to her that the way to have avoided the whole thing was to not drive while tanked.

You, and all the others quoting that line... Let me clarify: By "right" mother I wasn't talking about someone who was morally or ethically "right", but someone who was in a position to give fame/money/power to their little rugrat without the child having honestly earned it.

I always thought her last name was really funny. Like an insult about female genitals:

'She had a really low han, bro.'
