Lindsay Lohan Claims She's Innocent

In a July 24 e-mail to Access Hollywood host Billy Bush, the 21-year-old actress wrote "I am innocent...did not do drugs they're not mine. I was almost hit by my assistant Taryn's mom I appreciate everyone giving me my privacy."

Lohan was arrested and released on bail early that morning in Santa Monica for driving under the influence, driving with a suspended license, and felony cocaine possession. The arrest occurred less than two weeks after she completed her second stint at a rehab facility.

Police found cocaine in one of Lohan's pockets during a pre-booking search, according to Sgt. Shane Talbot. Police initially said Lohan was being booked for transportation of a narcotic, but later said she was not.

Authorities received a 911 emergency call from the mother of Lohan's former personal assistant saying that Lohan was chasing her in a sport utility vehicle.

The assistant had reportedly quit hours before. Lohan still faces charges of driving under the influence, stemming from a May hit-and-run crash in Beverly Hills.

Her attorney, Blair Berk, said she was wearing an alcohol-detecting ankle bracelet since her July 13 from a rehab facility, and received daily sobriety tests. She said Lohan had relapsed and was receiving medical care at an undisclosed location. Lohan's publicist, Leslie Sloane Zelnik, had no comment.
