Her legal problems continue...
Radar Online reports that Lindsay Lohan's bodyguard has been subpoenaed to testify in her lying-to-police trial. The bodyguard was driving behind her Porsche when it crashed into a cement truck last summer.
A source said: "The bodyguard was following Lindsay's Porsche as she headed to work that day. He was hired by the production company of the Liz & Dick television movie Lohan was working on to keep an eye on her and make sure she turned up to the set each day. Obviously, as he was right behind the car, he witnessed who was driving, and how the crash went down. He was also the person who drove Lohan to the hospital after the accident, so his testimony will be vital in establishing Lindsay's state of mind immediately after the crash and what exactly happened. The bodyguard is a reluctant witness and doesn't want to testify, but he has no choice in the matter now as he has been subpoenaed."
It's also being reported that several staff from the hotel Lohan stayed at during the time of the crash were also subpoenaed. They will likely testify they saw Lohan get behind the wheel of her car and drive away on the day of the crash.
Lohan told police at the time that her former assistant Gavin Doyle was driving at the time. Her attorney Mark Heller said she should not have been questioned because she was suffering from a concussion, which was not backed up by medical records. Heller is currently working on a plea deal that involves no jail or rehab time. Lohan doesn't want rehab as she says she doesn't have a problem with drugs or alcohol. If a plea deal can't be reached, Doyle will testify that she was driving at the time of the crash and not him.
The source added: "Gavin has been cooperating with prosecutors and will testify that Lindsay was driving the car that day. He will tell the truth because he has nothing to hide. He has been extremely concerned for her health and well being."
The trial will begin on March 18. If she is acquitted, she could still go to jail for up to 245 days for violating probation in her past necklace theft case.
