Remember that night back in 2007 when Lindsay Lohan allegedly commandeered a car for a high-speed chase across Los Angeles, at the end of which she failed a sobriety test and tried to convince cops, "I wasn't driving—the black kid was"?

If not, all you need to know is that back in 2007, Lindsay Lohan allegedly commandeered a car for a high-speed chase across Los Angeles, at the end of which she failed a sobriety test and tried to convince cops, "I wasn't driving—the black kid was." Unfortunately for Lohan, the black kid and his two friends who were in the car when Lohan jumped behind the wheel and sped off are claiming to have been kidnapped, with their lives endangered by Lohan's alleged jacking/high-speed chase. (For an exhaustive eyewitness account of the night in question, see TMZ.com.)

Anyway, the reason I'm bringing this up now is because a trial date has been set for the whole alleged car-jacking/kidnapping/life-endangering mess (during which Lohan reportedly told her passengers/alleged hostages, "I can't get in trouble, I'm a celebrity"), and that date is January 31, 2011.

So please enjoy whatever time we have left without Lindsay Lohan legal drama, for it all starts again in January. Prediction: In the end, the various dramas of Lindsay Lohan will make the various dramas of both Elizabeth Taylor and Courtney Love look like child's play (if Lohan doesn't cash out as a more popular version of Brittany Murphy before then). Stay tuned.
