Her legal issues have primarily been based around the use of alcohol and other drugs. The 26-year old Lohan has been in-and-out of rehab numerous times over the last several years. She has also been ordered to attend numerous classes and perform community service in addition to time she has been ordered to serve in jail. One of Lohan’s classes required her to meet with the county coroner to visit the morgue and speak with families of victims killed by drunk drivers.

There were numerous times that Michael allegedly beat Dina to the point of her being severely bruised. Dina recalls one specific incident, which occurred in 1986. Her and Michael, Lindsay’s father, were out on a date while Lindsay stayed home, and her, now, ex-husband, was severely intoxicated and he was also using cocaine. As the couple headed home, Michael, driving under-the-influence, began screaming for Dina to “get the (explicative) out of the car.” Following his command, he then clinched his fist and took a shot right below Dina’s eye, which bruised her cheekbone.
Of course, Michael recalls the incident a little differently, but he did admit to hitting Dina after she had hit him. He did not mention the incident occurring in the car, but rather after he had come home in the early morning hours after a night out.
