Lindsay Lohan’s mother is facing an aggravated drunken driving charge in New York following a traffic stop on Long Island. State police say Dina Lohan, 50, was stopped on the Northern State Parkway in Nassau County at 11 p.m. Thursday after troopers clocked her driving a BMW at 77 mph in a 55-mph zone. She took a breath test that pegged her blood-alcohol level at 0.20 percent, police said. That’s more than twice New York’s legal limit of 0.08 percent. Lohan was brought to a state police barracks in Farmingdale, issued tickets for driving while intoxicated and speeding, and then released to a ‘‘sober third party,’’ state police said in a news release. She is due in court Sept. 24. The traffic stop happened about 25 miles east of New York City and about 9 miles from Lohan’s home in Merrick. (AP)
