MERRICK, N.Y. (1010 WINS) – Lindsay Lohan’s mom was arrested for DWI on Long Island this weekend.

Dina Lohan was arrested Saturday evening after her Mercedes crashed into another car outside an Outback Steakhouse near the Merrick Mall in Merrick, according to TMZ.

Police say Lohan, 57, fled the scene and was chased down by the woman driving the other car.

The driver followed her to her home, where she was eventually taken into custody.

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 accused the officer of pushing her, and claimed she had only had one glass of wine.

Police say she also cursed at Nassau County Police officers during her arrest, the Daily Mail reported.

Lohan refused to take any field sobriety tests and is now facing a charge of felony DWI for her second offence within 10 years. She was arrested in 2013 for drunk driving after being pulled over for speeding.

She was also charged with leaving the scene, unlicensed operation and driving an uninspected vehicle.

Lohan is due back in court later this week after she was released on her own recognizance Sunday, her attorney, Mark Heller, said. He called her arrest “an unfortunate event" and said, “We're hoping we'll resolve it favorably."
