LOS ANGELES - Lindsay Lohan says she's innocent.

The 21-year-old actress was arrested and released on bail for investigation of misdemeanor driving under the influence and with a suspended license, and felony cocaine possession, early Tuesday in Santa Monica, less than two weeks after completing her second trip to rehab.

Editor: Spears behaved badly

at photo shoot

NEW YORK - Britney Spears sat back and watched as her Yorkshire terrier puppy pooped on a $6,700 designer gown at a photo shoot for OK magazine.

Spears also wiped grease on a designer dress, treating it like 'a napkin,' took frequent trips to the bathroom - leaving the door open - and complained that the high-end clothing put together for the July 19 fashion shoot weren't sexy, short or tight enough, the magazine said. After about three hours, the 25-year-old singer bolted, walking away with more than $14,000 of borrowed apparel, editor-in-chief Sarah Ivens said.

May was an astrophysics student at Imperial College when Queen, which included Freddie Mercury and Roger Taylor, formed in 1970.

LOS ANGELES - A forensic pathologist testifying for the defense said Wednesday that the actress Phil Spector is accused of killing shot herself, and that a medical examiner was 'hasty' in calling her death a homicide.

Dr. Werner Spitz testified that Lana Clarkson died of a self-inflicted wound to the mouth. Such wounds can be accidental or suicidal, he said, but in this case, he added: 'In my opinion, it is most likely a suicide.'
