Dina Lohan, mother of actress Lindsay Lohan, is getting her year off to a rocky start with a DWI.

A representative from the Nassau County Police Department told TODAY that Lohan was arrested at around 6:45 p.m. on Saturday in Merrick, New York, for allegedly driving while intoxicated. As of Sunday morning, she was transported to the First District Court in Hempstead, where she was being held for arraignment.

Police said Lohan, 57, was involved in a fender bender Saturday night in Massapequa and fled the scene. The other driver followed Lohan to Merrick, about 10 minutes away, where she was subsequently arrested.

In New York, drivers can get a DWI for operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or higher. Penalties include a fine and having your driver's license revoked.

Saturday's incident was not Lohan's first run-in with trouble. In 2013, she was arrested for aggravated driving while intoxicated and speeding and lost her license for a year after pleading guilty to the charges.

In the years since daughter Lindsay rose to fame in films including "The Parent Trap," "Mean Girls" and "Herbie: Fully Loaded," Lohan has been in the spotlight for a very public divorce from her ex-husband, Michael, who also has had brushes with the law.

The couple appeared on "Living Lohan," a 2008 reality show that aired for nine episodes that followed Lohan's life as mom and manager to her children. Lindsay, 33, also made headlines for her numerous stints in and out of rehab and offenses such as cocaine possession and jewelry theft.

TODAY reached out to Lohan’s representative for comment but had not heard back as of this posting.
