Cop Reportedly Confused Lindsay Lohan's Cocaine for Breath Mint-photo

Lindsay Lohan got lucky in the hours following her cocaine-fueled DUI police chase in 2007 when one of her arresting officers mistook the cocaine she allegedly had in her back pocket for a breath mint and threw it away.

The miracle began when an officer "discovered a folded Clinique sun care card with an unknown substance caked onto the surface of the card in Lohan's right rear pocket."

The oblivious cop continued:

"Some of the white substance fell to the floor. I used my foot to see what had fell but thought nothing of it. I did not recognize the substance attached to the card and initially thought the substance was a wet crushed breath mint. I put the card into the jail trash can next to the booking windows. I was looking at the floor and began to recognize the substance as resembling powder cocaine. I then recovered the card from the trash."

The bottom line—the suspicious powdery substance was contaminated by the cop's blunder, and was made inadmissible to court as a result, rescuing LiLo from a fate much worse than partying in Hollywood every night while wearing a SCRAM bracelet.
