According to the website TMZ, police officers who have seen Lindsay Lohan in action have discussed placing Lohan in an involuntary psychiatric hold, referred to as a 5150. 

What is a 5150?  Wikipedia defines it as follows: “Section 5150 is a section of the California Welfare and Institutions Code (specifically, the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act or “LPS”) which allows a qualified officer or clinician to involuntarily confine a person deemed to have a mental disorder that makes them a danger to him or her self, and/or others and/or gravely disabled.”

TMZ reports that police officers ultimately decided that Lindsay Lohan didn’t quite qualify for an involuntary psychiatric hold because she was still able to care for herself.

The 23-year-old has had two DUIs and three stints in rehab.
