Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer is a black woman!! Who knew?  Her name is Shawn Holley Chapman and she just got Lindsay off the hook for an old trumped up DUI charge. Seems like Ms. Chapman is of mixed heritage.

From Us magazine:

The warrant issued for Lindsay Lohan on Friday was recalled Monday in court.

In a quick hearing in L.A., Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, showed proof that Lohan had been complying with the terms of her probation stemming from a 2007 DUI arrest, her second, including attending alcohol classes. The actress, 22, was not present.

“Lindsay Lohan has been complying with aspects of the program,” Judge Marsha Nevel said, adding that there had been “no dirty [drug] tests.”

Lohan will enroll in a new alcohol and drug program; her attorney will provide proof by April 3.

The judge also asked that the court be notified of any future issues “so that things won’t go out of control.”

Outside of the courthouse, Holley told Us: “This is much ado about nothing. It was a misunderstanding and we have cleared it up.”
