(Newser) – Troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan has proclaimed her innocence after being arrested yesterday for DUI and cocaine possession. In an email to Access Hollywood the 21-year-old said the drugs "were not mine," and that she was "almost hit" in a parking lot car chase with the mother of her former assistant.

Lohan's lawyer told the AP her client, who's fresh out of rehab, had relapsed and is receiving medical care. Lohan still faces DUI charges from a May crash. The producers of the film she's about to start shooting are standing by her, but as one longtime publicist said, “I don’t see how she’s employable.”
