Lindsay Lohan Cited For Drunken Driving

Actress Lindsay Lohan was cited Saturday for investigation of driving under the influence after an early morning traffic accident, according to the Beverly Hills Police Department.

Sergeant Mike Foxen told CBS News that Lohan crashed her Mercedes convertible into a curb near the intersection of Foothill Drive and Sunset Boulevard. Two other people were in the car with her.

Lohan, who was slightly injured in the accident, was taken to a local hospital by a private vehicle.

No one else was hurt and no other cars were involved, Foxen said. He did not have other details.

The actress was not taken to jail, but Foxen said a citation was issued at the hospital.

She will have to make a court appearance sometime in the next month, according to the police.

Lohan publicist Leslie Sloane Zelnik did not immediately return an e-mail requesting comment.

Lohan recently sought treatment at a rehab facility in Malibu, Calif.

The 20-year-old actress told Allure Magazine during an interview that she decided to enter the secluded Wonderland Center, an addiction treatment facility, not because she was an addict, but at the suggestion of her therapist.

"It's so weird that I went to rehab. I always said I would die before I went to rehab," Lohan said.

Her room was "all white, with a parquet, and it was different! I just felt safe," Lohan said. "I thought, I'm going to stay here tonight. And I stayed there. For a month. It was great."

Lohan said in January that she had checked into the center. Her publicist Leslie Sloane Zelnick confirmed in December that Lohan was attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

Lohan recently avoided theft charges because prosecutors couldn't confirm she walked off with someone's clothes.

The Los Angeles district attorney's office declined to file felony grand theft charges on May 9 because of insufficient evidence, spokeswoman Jane Robison said.
