Lindsay Lohan To Sue Latino Chef For Drunk Driving Accusations
Actress Lindsay Lohan is suing Latino chef Jose Rodriguez who claims she was drunk driving.
The “Liz & Dick” actress is taking an offensive stance in her latest legal dustup by suing the cook who claims she was drunk driving.
Lohan reportedly hit a 34-year-old chef outside Manhattan’s tony Dream Hotel last week. The cook is claiming that she was drunk at the time.
However, LiLo wants to set the story straight and plans to sue Manhattan chef Jose Rodriguez for accusing her of being drunk when she allegedly hit him with a Porsche in New York City last week.
According to The New York Daily News, the 34-year-old chef claimed that Lohan hit him in the leg while drunk. He also reported that the often-troubled star was slurring and “smelled of alcohol”. Lohan was pulling a friend’s Porsche into a Chelsea driveway between the hip Maritime and Dream hotels when the incident occurred. The incident was also caught on tape which shows Rodriguez pursuing the car after it “glancingly struck him.”
Lohan’s representative, Steve Honig, told The Daily News that the matter will be cleared up in the coming weeks. He also said that the claims against Lohan will be proven untrue.
At the moment, Lohan is keeping a low profile as she prepares to debut the upcoming Lifetime movie, “Liz & Dick.” The movie is based on the public affair between late Hollywood actors Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
