The mother of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan is admitting to speeding and driving drunk on Long Island.

Dina Lohan entered a guilty plea in a Nassau County courtroom this morning.  Last September the elder Lohan was pulled over for speeding on the Northern State Parkway and found to have a blood alcohol level twice the legal limit.  She faces sentencing June 3rd for aggravated DWI and speeding.

By pleading guilty Lohan avoids jail time but must perform 100 hours of community service, pay fines, and will likely have her license taken away.

More LIRR issues Tuesday


LIRR riders on the Ronkonkoma, Port Jefferson and Huntington branches got stuck in some big delays during Tuesday night’s rush hour.

A fire on a utility pole near the LIRR tracks in Westbury suspended service for a while thousands were trying to get home from work and to the second Passover seder.  Fire officials say that electrical wires ignited the pole, which was most likely the result of high winds.

The LIRR expects to have a normal Wednesday morning rush hour.
