an all-new Parent Trap

Lindsay Lohan was arrested again. On another DUI charge. And cocaine. Again. She was just released from rehab less than two weeks ago.


Doesn't it just seem like some people will really NEVER learn?

My favorite part is the statement from Lindsay Lohan's lawyer: "Addiction is a terrible and vicious disease. 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."

I'm not going to make fun of someone's addictions. But she was voluntarily wearing the sobriety anklet and she didn't even last two weeks out of rehab before drunkenly chasing down her (now former) assistant in her Escalade.

I see a pretty clear issue here. Perhaps, just perhaps, she was not prepared to leave rehab when she did.

Just a thought.
