Dina Lohan was in court in Long Island, New York this morning (Wednesday) for a routine hearing in her DUI case -- but it was her lawyer's statement on the courthouse steps afterward that grabbed all the headlines.
Mark Heller -- who briefly represented Dina's daughter Lindsay -- told the assembled media, "The circumstances leading to Dina's arrest were largely impacted by ongoing daily stresses caused by you folks, the paparazzi, media attention and distorted tabloid character profiles." In other words, he essentially blamed the media for her drinking and driving.
Prosecutors say Dina blew a .20 on a breathalyzer. She pleaded not guilty last month.
