Dina Lohan, mother of actress Lindsay Lohan, was recently arrested on suspicion of drunk driving in New York.

Police said in a statement obtained by OTRC.com that on Thursday night, the 50-year-old was driving a BMW and speeding on a highway in the Long Island area. Cops pulled her over and she took a breath test, which revealed her blood alcohol concentration (BAC) to be 0.20 -- more than twice the legal limit in New York. She was then arrested on suspicion of DWI and Aggravated DWI.

Police added that Dina claims she was injured while being detained. She has not commented publicly.

"State Police called an ambulance to have Lohan evaluated," the statement said. "When emergency personnel arrived and evaluated Lohan, there were no injuries and she recanted her claim."

Dina was given traffic tickets for two DWI offenses and for speeding and was released to "a sober third party." She is set to appear in court on Sept. 24.

Dina's daughter Lindsay has made headlines over the past few years due to a slew of jail stints stemming from a 2007 DUI arrest. She has been to rehab several times.
