We rag on Lindsay Lohan all the time, but this time around, someone else deserves a Homer Simpson-esque D’oh! The police officer who arrested her after her 2007 DUI escapade. She may have got busted for coke through a urine test a couple of years later, but it’s no thanks to him! One wonders why Lohan got such little jail time – 84 minutes to be precise – after being caught pretty much red-handed, right?
It’s because Mr. Officer thought Lindsay’s cocaine was a breath mint and threw it into the trash! It’s all in the Santa Monica Police report. According to the not-so-bright cop, he “discovered a folded Clinique sun care card with an unknown substance caked on to the surface of the card in Lohan’s right rear pocket.Ã‚Â Some of the white substance fell to the floor.Ã‚Â I used my foot to see what had fell but thought nothing of it.Ã‚Â I did not recognize the substance attached to the card and initially thought the substance was a wet crushed breath mint.”
The cop had no choice to add to his boo-boo writing, “I put the card into the jail trash can next to the booking windows.Ã‚Â I was looking at the floor and began to recognize the substance as resembling powder cocaine. Ã‚Â I then recovered the card from the trash.” Too late, because there’s a little something called evidence contamination! The coke was in the trash for approximately 2 minutes before he had his little epiphany. He put the sun care card in one evidence envelope, and managed scraping some coke off the floor to put in another one. That lucky star which doesn’t seem to shine on LL anymore, was pretty useful then. But seriously dude… a breath mint? On Lindsay Lohan?
