Lindsay Lohan is obviously a Jedi.
Despite new reports saying police believe she was drinking when she crashed her Porsche into a truck last June on the Pacific Coast Highway, prosecutors are offering her a plea deal on her three charges - including lying to police - that doesn't involve jail time.
Sources connected to the case told TMZ that police found a bottle of alcohol next to her car and that her breath smelled of alcohol, but police did not conduct a sobriety tests at the scene.
Imagine this: Lohan softly saying, "You don't need to do a field sobriety test" and waving a hand in front of the police officers.
Apparently the Jedi Mind Trick worked. TMZ said prosecutors are prepared to offer the 26-year-old actress 60 days of inpatient rehab treatment, which is four months fewer than their original offer, which she rejected in January.
More Jedi trickery: "You will give me no jail time," she said, waving her hand in front of the DA's face.
Lohan will also be required to attend AA meetings once out of rehab, and complete community service.
If she takes the deal, it will mark the sixth time Lohan has attempted rehab.
If she rejects the deal, and the case goes to trial, she could face 245 days in jail if convicted.
Earlier this month, Lohan's lawyer, Mark Heller, filed a motion to dismiss the charges.
The motion included a letter to the prosecutor requesting that Lohan's case be put on the "slow track" so she could to pursue "certain activities
BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG TALKS ABOUT SUBSTANCE ABUSE: Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong opens up in a new interview with Rolling Stone about his years of alcohol and prescription drug abuse.
The East Bay native went to rehab following an onstage meltdown last September at the iHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas.
"I couldn't predict where I was going to end up at the end of the night," he said. "I'd wake up in a strange house on a couch. I wouldn't remember how. It was a complete blackout."
Armstrong confronted the issue after the Vegas show, where he smashed his guitar onstage and shouted, "I'm not (expletive) Justin Bieber, you mother (expletives)." Armstrong's recovery sidetracked promotion of Green Day's album trilogy "Â¡Uno!", "Â¡Dos!" and "Â¡Tre!", as the band postponed tour dates.
"I remember tiny things," Armstrong says of the Vegas incident. "The next morning, I woke up. I asked (my wife) Adrienne, 'How bad was it?' She said, 'It's bad.' I called my manager. He said, 'You're getting on a plane, going back to Oakland and going into rehab immediately.'
The issue of Rolling Stone comes out Friday
MILEY CYRUS AND LIAM HEMSWORTH MAY BE DONE: Miley Cyrus' supposed fiance Liam Hemsworth spent Oscar night getting cozy with January Jones, according to the Star.
The Star may not be the most reliable source, but pictures appeared on the Internet of Hemsworth and Jones in the back of a car. And, as you know, the Internet never lies.
The Star reported the "The Hunger Games" actor showed up at a party at the famed ChÃ¢teau Marmont hotel without Cyrus and proceeded to cozy up to the "Madmen" actress.
"It looked like they had some hot chemistry," an eyewitness told the Star. "They were all over each other -- and they even kissed."
Miley ain't gonna like that one dang bit.
Cyrus, who recently referred to Hemsworth as her "hubby" in a Cosmopolitan interview, showed up on Oscar night at the Elton John AIDS Foundation party where, a witness told the Star, she was "all over the place."
TINA FEY WON'T HOST OSCARS: Tina Fey said she has no plans to ever host the Academy Awards.
While William Shatner made the point during Sunday's telecast that the Oscars should let Fey and Amy Poehler host the Oscars every year, Fey told the Huffington Post that probably won't happen.
"I just feel like that gig is so hard," she said, adding that her gender would make hosting duties extremely taxing.
"The amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone ... no way."
Then wear a tux. Or your bathrobe ... whatever. Just do it.
Talk of Fey and Poehler co-hosting the Oscars intensified after the pair earned rave reviews hosting the Golden Globes this year.
SCOTT WEILAND FIRED: Stone Temple Pilots fired singer Scott Weiland.
According to TMZ, the band released a statement Wednesday saying "Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland."
Well ... there you have it.
The band gave no explanation as to why Weiland was canned, though the former Velvet Revolver singer has a long history of substance abuse issues.
Funny enough, Weiland this week denied rumors he was leaving the band, telling Rolling Stone "STP has not broken up. I haven't quit. I haven't been fired."
Yes, you have.
TMZ said rumors of a split began a couple of months ago, when Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash said Stone Temple Pilots had fired Weiland. The band reformed in 2008 after a five-year layoff, during which Weiland was in Velvet Revolver. He still hasn't been replaced, though Velvet Revolver hasn't officially disbanded.
Weiland is reportedly set to launch a solo tour next month.
BRANGELINA WEDDING MAY INCLUDE ELEPHANTS: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will have elephants and ponies involved in their upcoming wedding.
Seriously. The florist said so.
The latest rumor bouncing around the Internet is that the couple will get hitched at the end of May at their ChÃ¢teau Miraval estate in the South of France.
"Guests will travel past water fountains and Shetland ponies leaping as they go up the two-mile long drive to the house," Lucille Michel, the couple's florist, told the U.K.'s Grazia magazine. "They want the wedding to take place just before sunset."
I have a feeling that someone may be looking for a new florist.
"When the guests park, they'll see the family of elephants," Michel continued. "Brad hopes it will make them smile. Apparently, the elephants were the children's idea."
Maybe that's just code for saying there will be Republicans there.
Michel also said the couple will spend $30,000 on flowers -- planted, not cut. The couple's three daughters, Zahara, Shiloh and Vivienne, will supposedly serve as flower girls. No word on what the boys or George Clooney will do.
