(Newser) – Lindsay Lohan is being sued by three men who claim the star made them unwilling passengers in a high-speed car chase, reports Access Hollywood. The trio say the "highly intoxicated, as well as angry and aggressive" Lohan drove off with the SUV they were sitting in to chase her assistant after a 2007 party.

The men, seeking at least $50,000 in damages, say Lohan drove recklessly at high speed, running red lights and responding with "hostile wrath" to their pleas for her to stop. She was arrested for drunk driving later that night. A lawyer for Lohan told E! Online that the men had been given plenty of opportunities to get out of the car.
