Lohan Sued For Causing Emotional Car Chase Distress

Lindsay Lohan is still holed up at her outdoorsy Utah rehab, Cirque Lodge, but as usual the trouble follows her even when she's laying low. At least this time her trust isn't being publicly betrayed (for once), rather one of the people involved in her DUI car chase is suing LL for emotional damages. Tracie Rice, who was in the car with Lindsay's former assistant and her mother being chased by Lohan, is seeking an unspecified amount of money for, among other things, medical bills to cover emotional distress. She said LL:

"put me through one of the most frightening experiences of my life...What Miss Lohan did that night was extremely dangerous and reprehensible. Someone could easily have been killed or seriously hurt because of her irresponsible decisions that evening."

Yikes! Suing seems a little ridiculous, but I can't say it wouldn't be terrifying to be chased down by an angry LL. Hopefully soon she'll be healthy and ready to face any of her legal consequences so she can put this all behind her.

I think that the woman has every right to sue. while she might be faking it...if she's not...then all the money to her! seriously! When you experience a frightening momment, having to even somewhat repeat it is hard to do. If the experience of being chased by crazy cracklo has caused her to feel tense, and anxiety ridden when driving, then she has ever right to blame linlo for putting that fear in her. she didn't say to the 911 operator that lo-blow was chasing her. All she knew was that she WAS being chased by a car. Getting behind the wheel of car and driving only to become scared every time a car changes lanes or speeds up close to you (because of the prior incident) would effect her life. It could force her to seek psychological help or to give up driving for the time being. stupid b* should have the book thrown at her.

this lawsuit is completely justified. Severe emotional distress is a cause of action in a civil lawsuit. LL deserves to be sued by anyone who was on the freeway that night. The case will probably settle, but at least its out there. As for suing anyone who cuts you off on the freeway: if you can prove the causes of action sue away. Yeah America is a litigeous society, but that is how law is made & illegal situations are remedied.

llo caused me emotional distress by her drunk driving too - drunk driving is so rediculous and disrespectful to everyone.

thank god she's suing this girl. what she did WAS irresponsible and she COULD have killed someone. if this weren't a celebrity, i doubt you people would say the woman's just trying to "milk" her. i'm sure she was scared to death that night and all she wants to do is use the law to put a stop on this junkie idiot before she does actually kill someone.

I say sue her little butt! She was a brat and deserves to be accountable for her behavior. At the same time, we SHOULD be supportive in someone's attempts at cleaning up their life and entering rehab. If she's really serious about it, that is.

I think a lawsuit is justified. It's not trivial. This girl endangered the lives of several people on her little drunken rampage and they have every right to get compensation from her for her actions. Some of you people honestly need to stop defending this girl. She's a mess and a menace.

I don't know. I think it would be pretty frightening to be chased at high speeds by a coked out maniac! And I'm sure the assistant knew a lot of stuff about what Lindsay gets up to on a day to day basis.

People will do anything for money. The point is, we should all be thankful nothing bad happened. End of story.

um why doesnt she sue the assistant and the mother for not letting her out of the car? the best way to stop being chased is to stop running, the assistant and the mother both knew what was going on. the whole thing is childish and ridiculous sorry but our sue happy society is just giving more and more people reasons to not take responsibility for their actions.

I'd sue her too!! I've been in a car accident before (a regular one, nobody was chasing me) and it scared the hell out of me! For a long time after that I was terrified to get back in a car. I can only imagine how this girl must be feeling. If Lindsay had controlled herself, not stollen some guy's car and proceeded to try to run her assistant's car down, then maybe I could see how the lawsuit would be ridiculous.

Oh man, it sucks to be Lindsay right now! And how tragic that it should. She is a girl with so much unused potential. She's young, truly beautiful with a very distinct and different look, has a one of a kind voice, knows the ins and outs of hollywood, and has money coming out the bum. Someone in that position of power should be having the time of their lives right now. Sad Sad Sad.

gbonsoul, I agree with you that as a celeb she should know that she is at a higher risk for lawsuits. She shouldn't have tried to bully someone with a deadly weapon.

She was chasing them at over 100 MPH!! That is pretty massive, people. It isn't like she cut them off in traffic or something. She chased them for a very long time at very high speeds, running red lights (causing them to run red lights and risk their safety). A car is a dangerous weapon. It can kill people. If someone held you up with a gun you would want them punished, even if they didn't shoot you with it. The phone call shows the woman was incredibly hysterical. I don't think this lawsuit is excessive (even though there are a lot of suits out there that are).
