MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) — The mother of actress Lindsay Lohan won’t go to jail for speeding and driving drunk on a New York highway.

A judge ordered Dina Lohan on Tuesday to pay over $3,000 in fines and fees. She’ll also perform 100 hours of community service and participate in an anti-drunken driving program.

Her driver’s license remains suspended. The 51-year-old’s sentence includes a requirement that she install an alcohol-detecting ignition lock on her vehicle.

Lohan pleaded guilty in April to aggravated driving while intoxicated and speeding in Nassau County on Long Island in September. She has said she was fleeing paparazzi.

State police say Lohan, who lives in Merrick, was driving 77 mph in a 55-mph zone. They say her blood-alcohol level was 0.20, more than double the legal limit.
