With all the crying and denying that Lindsay Lohan does about her self-inflicted trials and tribulations, she should thank her lucky stars that she caught a break in her 2007 DUI case. As she was being booked, the officer who took custody of that "small amount" of cocaine found in her pocket threw away the substance and the card on which it was caked. Once he figured out that the white bits that had dropped to the floor could be cocaine, he retrieved the card from the trash. According to the police report, the officer said, "I put the card into the jail trash can next to the booking windows. I was looking at the floor and began to recognize the substance as resembling powder cocaine. I then recovered the card from the trash." The mistake could have implications on her court case because the evidence was obviously contaminated in the trash can. Even more outrageous was that he originally mistook the substance as trash. "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." So let's get this straight - you're booking Lindsay Lohan, of all people, and you mistake a powdery substance on her person for an Altoid?!? That's like assuming that the clear liquid in her water bottle is, well, water.
