Lindsay Lohan Sued by Passengers in DUI Chase
The actress was "angry and aggressive" and the men "felt surprise, shock, fear and panic at Lohan's surprising and sudden act" of allegedly commandeering a car in which they happened to be sitting to chase her personal assistant through the streets of Santa Monica, according to the lawsuit.
The plaintiffs – Ronnie Blake, Jakon Sutter and Dante Nigro – are seeking unspecified damages in the case, filed in Superior Court in Santa Monica.
Although nobody was physically injured, their suit describes a wild, traumatic ride with Lohan allegedly angry and intoxicated as she went after the other car following a party.
"Dante and Jakon continued to implore Lohan to slow down, stating specifically that she was endangering all of their lives and that they could be killed," the lawsuit says. "Lohan refused to slow or stop, but instead responded with abusive cursing and vulgar language, including a statement that she did not care about the risk of death."
The lawsuit adds: "She also stated that because she was a celebrity she could do whatever she wants."
Lohan's attorney, Ed McPherson, tells TMZ.com the lawsuit is "absurd."
"These guys had the night of their lives, playing with the radio and leaving the vehicle at one point and getting back in," he says.
Following her arrest, Lohan, 22, reached a plea deal in the case and spent 84 minutes in jail for DUI.
She also was sued by the passenger in the car she allegedly chased.
