Rice is demanding payment of expenses such as medical treatment as well as unspecified damages due to the 21-year-old actress’ “intentional infliction of emotional distress”.

“Her actions showed a complete disregard for my safety and well-being and that of the entire community.” “Reluctantly, I have decided to bring a civil action against Ms. Lohan for the enormous damage she has done to me by her conduct that evening,” said Rice in a statement.

“What Miss Lohan did that night was extremely dangerous and reprehensible.” , “Someone could easily have been killed or seriously hurt because of her irresponsible decisions that evening. (She) put me through one of the most frightening experiences of my life.” said Rice in the legal papers.

Meanwhile, Lohan is also facing possible legal action from the three men who were in the car she allegedly hijacked on the night to chase her former assistant, Tarin Grahame last month. The incident began with an argument between Grahame and Lohan, which resulted in the personal assistant quitting her position and driving away in her own car.

Ronnie Blake, Dante Nigro and Jakon Sutter were inside a white SUV at a Malibu party when the car was allegedly commandeered by the reportedly drunk actress.

Blake managed to get out of the car before Lohan sped off to pursue a former assistant, Tarin Grahame, but the actress drove over his foot in the GMC vehicle.

Nigro and Sutter, whoe remained in the car as Lohan chased through the streets of Malibu in California before she was arrested on Monday night, are considering stolen vehicle and false imprisonment charges.

“I’m going to grab the wheel and put my hand on the brake to try and stop the car,” Nigro explained.

“And then that’s when she’s like: ‘If you touch me, I’ll sue you’.”

The pair claimed they begged Lohan to stop or slow down, but she allegedly said: “I’m a celebrity. I can do whatever the **** I want.”

When Lohan failed a breathalyser test administered by arresting officers, she said: “I wasn’t driving. The black kid [Sutter] was driving,” Sutter claimed.

Lohan also shouted at Nigro and Sutter to say that she was innocent.
