Lindsay Lohan's mother Dina was arrested for drunk driving and her blood alcohol was more than double the legal limit.

The 50-year-old Dina was pulled over on the Northern State

Parkway by New York State Police around 11 pm on Thursday

night for speeding in her white BMW.

The police decided to do a test on her as she appeared intoxicated. Her blood alcohol level registered at .20 which is more than twice the legal limit of .08 Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC), TMZ reported.

Medical personnel were called after Dina "made an allegation that she was injured during the course of the arrest," according to the police. She later retracted the claim.

Dina was taken to a nearby station where she has been booked for two counts of driving while intoxicated and one

count of speeding.

She was released later and is due back in court later this month.
