Lindsay Lohan Burglary Case: She Can’t Get Her Story StraightBy: Amanda Crum - August 29, 2012
Lindsay Lohan seems to epitomize the term “troubled”. In the past few years she’s been accused of hit-and-runs, drinking and driving, being addicted to drugs, stealing jewelry, and procuring hastily-done plastic surgery which makes her look several years older than she actually is. She’s been in jail, she’s dealt with lengthy court appearances, and somehow, in the midst of it all, she’s managed to appear in a few movies which garnered mostly bad reviews.
It doesn’t look like things are changing anytime soon. Lohan has been accused of stealing thousands of dollars worth of cash and other items from a friend, Sam Magid, when she attended his house party. Her assistant told authorities that some items were indeed taken, but wouldn’t say who the culprit was. And while that certainly sounds suspicious, Lohan didn’t have any trouble pushing the blame onto other party-goers, including Andrew Knight (son of music mogul Suge Knight).
However, she later alternately said she was on Ambien and was too hazy to remember exactly what happened, and that she was simply hiding the items in different locations around the house because she was worried they would be stolen. Because none of the items were found to be in her possession and because there are so many conflicting stories, officials say they don’t have sufficient evidence to press charges against Lohan, so it looks like she’ll get a pass on this one. Hopefully she’ll stick to making movies and stay out of trouble.
