Lindsay Lohan in trouble again after recent car accident

If there is anyone who is the poster child for "things you should not do," it is Lindsay Lohan. The 25-year-old actress has been in and out of trouble with the law for years. Although her movie deals don't seem to be drying up, she can't act herself out of a paper bag in real life. Her latest car accident incident is a reminder to West Virginia readers that you can only get away with so much, even if you're Lindsay Lohan.

According to a report, the actress was driving a rental Porsche when she collided with an 18-wheeler. No one was hurt in the accident but Lohan's reputation has taken another hit. Apparently she told the police officers who responded to the accident that her assistant Gavin had been driving when the accident happened.

Gavin's story was different. He told the officers that he had not been driving at the time of the accident. In California, where the accident took place, as in many other states, giving false information may be considered a misdemeanor and could land a person in jail for up to six months.

As it turns out, Lohan could have exchanged her information, told the officers what had happened, and driven off. Instead, she could now be sent to jail. The incident is a good reminder for the rest of us that it's best just to come clean from the start. Lying to police after being involved in an auto accident can result in more serious penalties than one would ever receive just telling the truth.
