In news that we all saw coming since 2007, Lindsay Lohan officially got named as a suspect in the theft of $100,000 worth of sunglasses and watches — from her own friend, Sam Magid. You know Sam Magid, right? He’s the guy who has a pair of sunglasses for every outfit he wears.
Police think that LiLo, her assistant Gavin Doyle and possibly the entire cast of Oceans 11 stole the items while spending time at Sam’s house recently. Rumor has it that they narrowed in on Lindsay Lohan after they asked her for the time and she gave it to them from 18 different watches. And even though Sam now changed his mind about pressing charges against the thieves, the police are super gung-ho about investigating anyway.
Mostly because the summer’s always a little slow for the detectives assigned to the Super Rich People With Too Much Stuff Who Stupidly Let Known Celebrity Thieves Wander Around Their House Unsupervised department. Yes, I know, it’s a niche department. However that hasn’t stopped CBS from developing a crime series around it.
While everyone else in the country frets over the fact that Sam Magid’s missing his not-at-all excessive sunglasses and watch collection, we’re worried about Lindsay Lohan.
She’s clearly addicted to being a police suspect and the problem’s getting so bad now that it’s verging on embarrassing. It’s like she’ll do whatever it takes to get interviewed by the cops. Doing drugs, drinking and driving, stealing jewelry, being seen in public with Michael Lohan. No crime is too criminal for Lindsay Lohan.
And I think now is the time to look at her and look at her problem and get her into rehab. If her family wants her to even have a shot of hosting a reality TV show one day, they have to take these measures now.
