UPDATE: Beverly Hills Police spokesperson said that Lindsay Lohan was arrested and served at the hospital, that further charges are pending the investigation. The vehicle was located and impounded. The cops found narcotics tentatively id'd as cocaine. Sounds like the case will be under investigation until next week, then will be sent to the DA.

UPDATE - At a press conference officals said that additional FELONY charges may be added. They found illegal narcotics in her car. They said her injuries were in the "chest area."

The Associated Press reports that 20 year old Lindsay Lohan was cited Saturday for investigation of driving under the influence after an early morning traffic accident, according to the Beverly Hills Police Department.

La Lohan crashed her Mercedes convertible into a curb near the intersection of Foothill Drive and Sunset Boulevard at approximately 5:25 am Saturday morning. Two other people were in the car with her. Lohan, who was slightly injured in the accident, was taken to a local hospital by a private vehicle. No other cars were involved according to CBS News. One unconfirmed report states that one of the two other passengers in the vehicle was DJ/Singer Samantha Ronson, who had her track "Built This Way" featured in Lohan's film hit "Mean Girls" in 2004. The two other passengers reportedly received minor injuries and were taken to a local hospital.

The actress/singer was not taken to jail immediately, but was served with a citation for the investigation of suspicion of DUI, which was issued to her at the hospital.

Lohan publicist Leslie Sloane Zelnik did not immediately return calls or e-mails requesting a comment.

Lindsay recently sought treatment at a rehab facility in Malibu, California. The 20-year-old actress/singer told Allure Magazine during an interview that she decided to enter the secluded Wonderland Center, an addiction treatment facility, not because she was an addict, but at the suggestion of her therapist. "It's so weird that I went to rehab. I always said I would die before I went to rehab," Lohan said. Her room was "all white, with a parquet, and it was different! I just felt safe," Lohan said. "I thought, I'm going to stay here tonight. And I stayed there. For a month. It was great."

Lohan said in January that she had checked into the center.

Her publicist Leslie Sloane Zelnick confirmed in December that Lohan was attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

Recently, the Los Angeles District Attorney's office declined to file felony grand theft charges on May 9 because of insufficient evidence, spokeswoman Jane Robison said. Prosecutors couldn't confirm Lohan walked off with the complainant's clothes.

Lindsay has stated in previous interviews the importance of being honest, but hasn't recently practiced what she preaches. Lohan stated: "I’m a big believer in karma so I believe it will come back and get you if you lie. It's bad karma, and I'm a big believer in karma—hence the fact that I've studied kabbalah. I'm very true to the 'Treat people the way you want to be treated' sort of thing."

La Lohan must not have been thinking of karma when she misled anxious fans at the New York premiere of "Georgia Rule"into believing she would return to sign autographs and failed to do so. She has also been video recorded in recent months by paparazzi contradicting herself with the statements she has made on several occasions.

Lindsay will have to make a court appearance for this latest car accident sometime in the next month, according to the BHPD.
