When Lindsay Lohan got busted with a DUI and showed up to the police station with cocaine in her pocket, we thought "oh she's done!"
So you can imagine our surprise when she got a plea bargain so quickly and the cocaine was never mentioned again. Now, three years later, we're finding out that the cop handling her case was totally clueless about the coke.
According to TMZ, the cop who took custody of the cocaine mistook it for a breath mint and threw it in the trash. Come on! Coke and Lindsay Lohan went together like peanut butter and jelly back in 2007.
According to the Santa Monica police report, the officer "discovered a folded Clinique sun care card with an unknown substance caked on to the surface of the card in Lohan's right rear pocket."
The report goes on: "Some of the white substance fell to the floor. I used my foot to see what had fell but thought nothing of it. I did not recognize the substance attached to the card and initially thought the substance was a wet crushed breath mint."
The coke was in the trash for about 2 minutes and when he finally discovered what it was, he had to take it out and put it in a separate evidence envelope, but the evidence was "already contaminated" at that point.
Talk about getting lucky! Lindsay ended up serving only 84 minutes in jail for that one. This girl gets one lucky break after another. No wonder she never learns her lesson!
