Authorities have released an audio copy of the 911 call made by the mother of Lindsay Lohan’s former personal assistant in the minutes before Lohan’s arrest.
The woman pleaded frantically for help early Tuesday because a mysterious car was following her, according to the audio copy, released Thursday. The 911 call lasted nearly three minutes.
Lohan, 21, was arrested for investigation of misdemeanor driving under the influence and with a suspended license, and felony cocaine possession.
Her personal assistant had quit hours before the event, police said.
The woman contacted a Santa Monica police dispatcher shortly after 1:30 a.m. Tuesday while driving on Wilshire Boulevard. She apparently didn’t realize the actress was in the white GMC following her.
“We were just about to park our car. We are turning home and out of nowhere a huge white GMC came up,” the woman said to the dispatcher.
The dispatcher repeatedly asked the woman for her location. The woman eventually said she was heading for the police station.
Police said the woman, accompanied by a passenger, drove her black Cadillac Escalade into the parking lot of Santa Monica’s Civic Auditorium, about a block away from the police department, followed by Lohan driving a Yukon sport utility vehicle.
During the call, the woman could be heard saying, “Oh my God, what is he doing?” Near the end, hysterical but muffled yelling and screaming is heard.
A few moments later, the woman could be heard in the background, apparently pointing out people to the officers.
“That’s him, that’s him right there,” she said. “And him, stop them.”
Authorities saw Lohan and the woman in what police have called a “heated debate.” They also said two men were with the actress in the car.
Three men have alleged they were with Lohan when she began chasing the woman, celebrity Web site TMZ.com reported Thursday.
According to the Web site, the men alleged that Lohan commandered the car outside a party in Malibu, about 20 miles away. One of the men claimed to have jumped out of the car just as Lohan accelerated, TMZ said.
The allegations could not be independently verified by The Associated Press.
Lohan’s lawyer, Blair Berk, declined comment when reached late Thursday by the AP.
Santa Monica police Sgt. Marty Fine declined comment and referred questions to a media representative who wasn’t available.
Los Angeles police and sheriff’s officials had no comment. They said they had not been contacted by the Santa Monica Police Department, which is leading the investigation.
Lohan’s latest film, “I Know Who Killed Me,” opened in theaters Friday.
