Lindsay Lohan, when arrested in 2007 for her DUI, got off the hook pretty easy because of a fatal error made by police. An officer sounding right off of Reno 911! thought that white powder on a Clinique sun care card was a crushed up breath mint. Do they see that a lot?
According to the Santa Monica Police report, the officer took custody of the card and when some of the white substance fell to the ground, the officer said, “I used my foot to see what had fell but thought nothing of it. I did not recognize the substance attached to the card and initially thought the substance was a wet crushed breath mint.”
“I put the card into the jail trash can next to the booking windows. I was looking at the floor and began to recognize the substance as resembling powder cocaine. I then recovered the card from the trash.”
He then tried to submit it as evidence but it was too late and had been tampered with.
Lindsay Lohan walked out with only 84 minutes of jail time and probably promptly stopped at a Rite Aid for more breath mints! Kinda like the gallery below…hmmm…
