Lindsay Lohan reportedly headed back to rehab for a third time on Tuesday, July 24, hours after she was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and possession of cocaine. The 21-year-old actress completed her second stint in rehab just eleven days before.Addiction is a terrible and vicious disease,’ Lindsay’s attorney, Blair Berk, said in s statement. ‘Since Lindsay transitioned to outpatient care, she has been monitored on a SCRAM bracelet and tested daily in order to support her sobriety. Throughout this period, I have received timely and accurate reports from the testing companies. Unfortunately, late yesterday I was informed that Lindsay had relapsed. The bracelet has now been removed. She is safe, out of custody and presently receiving medical care.In a statement to OK!, Sgt. Robert Hernandez of the Santa Monica Police Department says officers responded to a call of a vehicle chasing another vehicle at 1:34 a.m. Tuesday morning. When officers arrived, they determined that the chasing vehicle was being driven by Lindsay. She was suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol. A field sobriety test was conducted and she was subsequently arrested for DUI. At the station, a search was conducted and cocaine was found in her possession. A breath test was conducted and her blood alcohol was found to be .12 percent and .13 percent. (California’s legal limit is 0.08.) The Georgia Rule star was booked for DUI, possession of cocaine, transporting a narcotic into a custody facility and driving on a suspended or revoked drivers license. Sgt. Hernandez tells OK! that Lindsay was released to her lawyer from Santa Monica police station at 6.20 a.m. after posting $25,000 bail.Sgt. Shane Talbot tells OK! the actress was allegedly chasing another car in a white Lexus SUV around the parking lot of Santa Monica Civic Auditorium (located next to the police station) before she was arrested.This is hardly Lindsay’s first brush with the law. In May, she was arrested for driving under the influence and hit-and-run after a car crash. Days after her release from rehab, she turned herself in to police in connection with the case on July 19.X17Online is speaking out about her desperation for cash.’The 21-year-old had offered to ‘sell’ photos to X17 to the tune of $30,000!’ the photo agency posted on their Web site. ‘Linds had been calling and texting numerous members of Team X17 over the past week, trying to organize a way to get some money and she’s been in touch with other pap agencies as well. And it’s not the first time! Lindsay offered the same type of deal to us last September, though nothing ever came of it. Apparently someone’s been keeping the $$$$ away from the repeat rehabber.’According to TMZ, Lindsay’s arraignment is set for August 24 at 8:30 a.m., which is the same day she is scheduled to appear in Beverly Hills Court for her Memorial Day weekend DUI bust.
