Lindsay could be in more trouble than ever. The recently released jailbird reportedly hit a baby with her Maserati, and attorney Raoul Felder says she might have more bars in her future.
Lindsay Lohan, 24, just doesn’t seem to get it. You would think she’d be volunteering and changing her image since being released from both jail AND rehab early, but Linds is clearly too cool for that. The once Hollywood A-lister not only was pulled over Aug. 28 for blowing a stop sign, but she also reportedly hit a baby stroller Sept. 1 — yes, there was a child inside the stroller.
HollywoodLife.com spoke with Raoul Felder, named as one of America’s 100 most powerful lawyers in New York Law Journal, who says Lindsay could be in very serious trouble, even if no police report was filed.
“In Los Angeles the pedestrian always has the right of way,” says Mr. Felder. “Even if it’s a green light and the pedestrian is j-walking they still get the right of way.”
Lindsay might think she’s in the clear since no one reported the incident to the LAPD or LASD [HollywoodLife.com spoke with both departments] but according to Raoul, this actually makes the situation even worse.
“First off, it’s against the law to not report an accident, and that’s an offense within itself and it was Lindsay’s responsibility to do that,” says Raoul. “There are murders that don’t get reported and there are still investigations. If the investigation can prove that she really hit the stroller even if the baby wasn’t hurt, she could lose her license and most likely go back in the cooler. I don’t see how she’s going to walk away from this one when she has a record already.”
Like we’ve said before, Lindsay shouldn’t even be behind the wheel of a car — what is she thinking?!
“I would advise her to not drive cars and treat every day as if she were being photographed,” says Raoul. “I would tell her ‘don’t go near a car and don’t be in a room where anyone is drinking.’”
Raoul is referring to the recent photographs of Lindsay on TMZ that show her in a room with several bottles of alcohol.
“If there’s photos of liquor bottles that’s not going to impress any judge,” says Raoul. “Whatever hope there is for Lindsay is diminishing rapidly and she is clearly unable to help herself.”
