DINA LOHAN ARRESTED FOR DWI
Lindsay Lohan may be concentrating on her sobriety, but her mom is still drinking up a storm. 50-year-old Dina Lohan was arrested in New York Thursday and charged with DWI. Cops pulled Dina over at around 11 pm for speeding and had her take a breathalyzer test because she appeared intoxicated. She blew a .20, which is more than twice the legal limit of .08. Dina then said she was injured during the arrest and medics were called, but when they arrived “she recanted her claim.” She was booked on two counts of driving while intoxicated and one count of speeding and then released to a sober third party (not Lindsay, according to TMZ). Dina’s lawyer later released a statement that included a pun on one of Lindsay’s hit movies. “Dina Lohan is a good person. Her life has been dedicated to her four children,” read the statement. “She has worked hard her entire life and she has been a 'Parent Trapped' with the entire world watching her in a fishbowl with murky water due to no fault of her own.” She is scheduled to appear in Nassau County District Court September 24th.
ARE MILEY & LIAM OVER?

KHLOE CANCELS LAMAR’S CREDIT CARDS
Khloe Kardashian is trying to stop her husband Lamar Odom from doing drugs by cutting off his money. According to Us Weekly, Khloe cancelled the couple’s joint credit cards “so he couldn’t get cash.” But Lamar, who has reportedly been spending $800 a day on drugs, has found a new way to get the money. “He pawned expensive jewelry,” claimed a source. On Friday, Lamar was officially charged with one count of DUI, stemming from his August 20th arrest. Lamar refused to take a drug test when he was arrested, which means his driver’s license was suspended for a year. Meanwhile, Radaronline reports that after Khloe found out about all the women Lamar cheated with, she got herself tested for sexually transmitted diseases. A source claims Khloe “was physically sick to her stomach when Lamar admitted that not only had he cheated on her, but didn’t use protection 100 percent of the time. She is healthy, thankfully, but never thought this would happen to her.”

While Sutter apologized if the episode offended anyone personally involved in a school shooting, he added, “that is a very small percentage of us.” “I’m a storyteller. … I have a God given gift that I can share with you and perhaps entertain you and bring you along for the ride,” he explained. “So when anybody tries to take that away from me, or impede that, I get defensive.” Finally, he explained, “until somebody kicks in my door and tackles me to the ground and cuts off my f**king hands, I’m going to keep doing what I do. So f**k them. And thank you.”
