Dina Lohan's lawyer is pun-tastic. Lohan, 50, was arrested on Thursday, Sept. 12, for driving while intoxicated on Long Island, and in a new statement, her attorney Mark Heller couldn't help but reference her famous daughter's classic movie debut.

"Dina Lohan is a good person. Her life has been dedicated to her four children. She has worked hard her entire life and she has been a 'Parent Trapped' with the entire world watching her in a fishbowl with murky water due to no fault of her own," Heller, told Entertainment Tonight in a statement on Friday.

Lindsay, 27, first broke out in Hollywood when she starred in The Parent Trap remake in 1998. Then 12, the actress played the twin roles of Hallie Parker and Annie James, starring alongside Dennis Quaid and the late Natasha Richardson.

He continued: "She appreciates the grave seriousness of this matter and is mindful that the Nassau County District Attorney considers these types of cases a top priority. But as an attorney with 45 years of experience, I am confident that as a first time offender, with absolutely no prior record, that the Judicial System will treat Dina Lohan with even-handed fairness."

The mother of four was arrested on the Northern State Parkway in Oyster Bay around 11 p.m. after going 77 mph in a 55 mph zone. She was issued traffic tickets for speeding, DWI and aggravated DWI when her breath test revealed her blood alcohol concentration was twice the legal limit, at .20%.

Lohan is due back for a hearing in Nassau County First District Court on Sept. 24 at 9 a.m.
