Her license suspended, Dina Lohan left a suburban New York courthouse in a chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce on Tuesday after entering a not guilty plea on speeding and drunken driving charges.
Lohan, 50, was surrounded by a media throng usually associated with her troubled actress daughter, Lindsay Lohan, as she left a Long Island courthouse following her arraignment. She was released without bail until her next court appearance on Oct. 23.

Out of rehab and living relatively drama free in New York City, (well, except for Dina Lohan's DUI) the latest on Lindsay Lohan is decidedly wholesome: she's dating handsome Texan football star Matt Nordgren.
Lohan first met Nordgren, 30, a former University of Texas football star who played one season with the Philadelphia Eagles, and then starred on the 2011 Bravo reality show Most Eligible Dallas, seven years ago.
While Nordgren has been linked to former The Bachelorette star Vienna Giardi and former The Hills star Audrina Patridge, he's has been with Lohan of late.

Is she finally serious about sobriety?
A source close to Lindsay Lohan's says yes, that the actress, who has relapsed many times before, is getting a framework in place to keep her from falling into substance abuse again upon her latest release from rehab.
That means truly committing to therapy and AA, cutting enablers out of her life and leaning on good influences, including Oprah Winfrey, for support.
"She's the best I've ever seen her, honestly," the source tells PEOPLE. "All she wants to do is work."

If there's one person who understands Lindsay Lohan's plight, it's her father, Michael.
"I know that jail didn't do anything for me with my addictions," Michael, 50, said Tuesday on Larry King Live. "[Lindsay] needs help. … The last thing I wanted in the world was for my daughter to go to jail."
Calling jail too "harsh" for a "young lady like Lindsay," Michael expressed his faith that his daughter will get her act together. "When she puts her mind to something, she can do anything in the world," he said.

Dina Lohan is furious that her ex-husband Michael brought the Los Angeles Country Sheriff's Department to daughter Lindsay's apartment Thursday – and disputes his claim that the starlet is a bad influence on her younger sister, Ali.
"They scared the hell out of my girls," Dina tells PEOPLE. "Ali called me hysterically crying. They were hysterical and petrified of him. I spoke to the [police officer] and said, 'You don’t have a warrant, get out!'
Michael says he called the cops to perform a "welfare check" on daughter Ali, 16, because he was concerned about her safety. "Ali is being exposed to nightlife and the people Lindsay is surrounding herself with," he told Hollyscoop at the time. She's 16 and she doesn't belong there. She's a minor."
But Dina says Ali and Lindsay, 23, are perfectly safe.
