LOS ANGELES — Lindsay Lohan has gone on the record about her arrest, communicating only with “Access Hollywood’s” Billy Bush.
When Billy e-mailed Lohan asking if everything was OK and if there was anything she wanted him to get out there for her, she responded, “Yes. I am innocent ... did not do drugs they're not mine. I was almost hit by my assistant Tarin's mom. I appreciate everyone giving me my privacy.”
Billy had just finished discussing Lohan’s situation on CNN’s “Larry King Live” when he received the message.
Tuesday morning’s arrest was Lohan’s second for an alleged DUI in less than three months.

According to Santa Monica Police, Lohan was arrested early Tuesday morning on suspicion of drunken driving at approximately 1:30 a.m. She was driving a white SUV. When pulled over by police, authorities said the 21-year-old actress refused to submit to a Breathalyzer, but did agree to other field sobriety tests, which she failed.
Meanwhile, “Access” has learned the driver of the vehicle being “chased” was the mother of Lindsay’s assistant, Tarin Graham, who had just been fired.
Lohan was taken to jail where her blood-alcohol level registered a .12 (well above the legal limit which is .08). Lohan was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence, as well as driving on a suspended license.
Two other people were in the vehicle, but were reportedly released.
According to reports, police received a 911 call from someone claiming they were being chased by another vehicle.
According to police, Lindsay was the driver in the other vehicle.
Lohan was released shortly before 6:30 a.m. PDT on $25,000 bail.
