Lindsay Lohan has dodged a bullet yet again. The “Liz & Dick” actress will not be prosecuted for allegedly stealing $100,000 worth of watches, sunglasses, and silverware because the L.A. County District Attorney didn’t feel there was enough evidence against her. According toTMZ, eyewitnesses at the home of producer Sam Magid who implicated Lohan, her assistant Gavin Doyle, and two other male friends of hers, “refused to become involved” in the investigation. Additionally, Magid himself retracted his original story that he suspected Lohan and her pals of stealing from him.
The DA’s decision came just hours after it was reported that Lohan was trying to blame her friend Andrew Knight, self-proclaimed son of Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight, for the crime. According to TMZ, Magid told police that he had been in contact with Knight and the other male, who informed him that the actress had given them a bag with the stolen items wrapped in a T-shirt. Although the men later returned the items to Magid, some stuff was still missing. When Magid then spoke to Lohan, she claimed she “hid” the belongings in his own home so burglars would not find them – but she also admitted to being on Ambien and therefore has a hazy memory as to where she exactly put them. Magid also told LAPD detectives that the troubled star, who is still on probation for stealing a necklace in January 2011, said to him, “I’m sorry. Please pray for me.”
Lohan, 26, may have gotten lucky this time, but she’s still on the hook for having lied to police in Santa Monica after her June car accident in which she crashed her rented Porsche into an 18-wheeler on the Pacific Coast Highway. During questioning, Lohan insisted she wasn’t the one driving, which wasn’t the case according to witnesses and even her own assistant, who LiLo tried to say was the one behind the wheel. She reportedly later said the car’s brakes malfunctioned … another claim which was also proven false. If found guilty of lying to police, Lohan could face one year in jail.
