Lindsay Lohan Booked On May DUI Charges

Lindsay Lohan was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence in connection with a Memorial Day weekend car crash, police said.

Lohan, accompanied by her attorney, surrendered herself at the Beverly Hills Police Department shortly after 4 p.m. Thursday to be fingerprinted and photographed, said Officer Brian Ballieweg.

She was booked on suspicion of a DUI with a blood alcohol level above .08, California's legal limit, and on suspicion of misdemeanor hit and run, Ballieweg said.

The 21-year-old actress was released on her own recognizance. A court date was scheduled for August 24.

A message left early Friday with her publicist was not immediately returned.

The booking was reported by TV's "The Insider."

Lohan and two other adults were in her 2005 Mercedes SL-65 convertible when she lost control and crashed into a curb and shrubbery on westbound Sunset Boulevard at about 5:30 a.m. on May 26, police said.

After the crash, Lohan got into a second car and was driven to a hospital in nearby Century City for treatment of minor injuries, police said. The two other people in her car were not hurt.

Officers received a 911 call about the accident and traced her to a local hospital. Police said at the time she had been arrested for investigation of driving under the influence, though she wasn't formally booked on the allegation until Thursday.

Lohan's booking comes a few days after she finished a second rehab stint that lasted over six weeks. She began rehab after a wild Memorial Day weekend that included the crash.

She said in January she had checked into a rehabilitation center for substance abuse treatment.
