HEMPSTEAD - Dina Lohan was back in court today, where her attorney claimed that the media drove her to drink.

Lohan appeared in First District Court in Hempstead this morning. Police say Lohan's blood alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit when she was stopped last month on the Northern State Parkway near Route 135.

"The circumstances leading to Dina's arrest were largely impacted by daily ongoing stresses caused by you folks - the paparazzi, media attention and distorted tabloid character profiles," Mark Heller, Lohan's lawyer, says.

Lohan pleaded not guilty to the DWI charge.
