Dina Lohan, the mother of actress Lindsay Lohan, was sentenced Friday to 18 days behind bars after pleading guilty to felony drunk driving.

MINEOLA, Long Island (WABC) -- The mother of actress Lindsay Lohan was sentenced Friday to 18 days behind bars after pleading guilty to felony drunk driving earlier this year.

Dina Lohan, 59, also faces five years of probation following her arrest on Long Island last year.

She pleaded guilty to operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and leaving the scene of an accident after she crashed into another car near Merrick Mall back in January of 2020.

Lohan tried to flee the scene of the accident and was chased down by the victim of the crash before she was taken into custody outside her home.

According to court documents, the police officer who responded found Lohan in the driver's seat of her Mercedes with the engine on and observed her with the odor of alcohol on her breath, glassy eyes, and slurred speech.

The officer said when Lohan got out of the car, she fell to the ground and then accused the officer of pushing her and claimed she had only had one glass of wine.

She had previously pleaded not guilty.

She also agreed to waive her right to appeal her conviction, and she must participate in a victim impact panel and take part in a recidivist alcohol probation program.

Her license was also revoked for 18 months, and she must install an ignition interlock device on her vehicle during the probationary period.

Dina Lohan was previously convicted of aggravated drunken driving in 2014 following an earlier arrest in Nassau County and ordered to perform community service and participate in an anti-drunken driving program.
