|Dina & Lindsay Lohan|
According to New York State Police, the 27-year-old actress' mother was arrested driving at "a speed of 77 mph in a 55mph zone".
Meanwhile, TMZ have reported her blood alcohol level was .2, more than twice the legal limit of .08.
Officials told the gossip site: "Lohan made an allegation that she was injured during the course of the arrest."
However, they added Dina "recanted her claim" once medical personnel arrived at the scene and determined she was fine.
She was later released to a sober third party - the site notes it wasn't her daughter - and she will appear in court later this month.
Last month Lindsay - who recently complete a 90-day court ordered stay at the Cliffside Malibu treatment centre - was reportedly "begging" her mother to seek help for alleged alcohol problems.
A source previously claimed: "Lindsay has been worried sick about Dina lately.
"She knows Dina has been out drinking and she sees how much her own treatment helped her, so she has been begging her mother to go and get help."
