The 21-year-old star of "Mean Girls" -- already facing a drunken-driving charge

following a car crash two months ago -- was pulled over in the coastal city of Santa Monica shortly after midnight.

Police said they had received a report of a car chase and that Lohan and two companions were in the pursuing vehicle.

She was taken into custody after failing a field sobriety test. A subsequent search yielded some cocaine in her pocket, police said.

Lohan was booked on suspicion of drunken driving, cocaine possession and driving on a suspended license. She was being held in the Santa Monica jail, police said.
