Lindsay Lohan Settles Lawsuit Over 2007 Car Chase

The actress still faces another suit from the night that led to her DUI arrest

At least one of Lindsay Lohan's legal woes has been put to rest.

The frequently troubled actress — who's currently under house arrest due to her probation violation — settled a lawsuit stemming from a 2007 car chase on Wednesday, the Associated Press reports.

In the suit, Tracie Rice claimed that she had been so psychologically damaged by being pursued during a chase on the Pacific Coast Highway that she lost her job.

On the night in question — which eventually culminated in one of Lohan's DUI arrests — Rice was riding in the car of Lohan's assistant, when the actress exited the party they had been at, climbed into another car, and followed Rice in hot pursuit. The vehicles eventually came to a stop in the parking lot of the Santa Monica Civic Center, where police arrived and arrested Lohan on suspicion of driving under the influence and cocaine possession.

The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

Lohan still isn't out of the woods when it comes to that fateful night, however. In addition to currently serving house arrest for violating her probation in connection to the arrest, E! Online reports that Lohan is still facing another lawsuit from her car passengers that evening. Ronnie Blake, Jakon Sutter and Dante Nigro's suit alleges assault, battery, negligence, slander, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress on Lohan's part.

Lohan's attorney did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment.
