Her friends think Lindsay Lohan is going to die. Apparently some law enforcement officials have been similarly alarmed at her condition and share that sentiment.
Police officers who routinely come in contact with Lindsay - the fact that they do at all tells you something - say they have thought about forcing her to get help.
Cops, unsurprisingly, see Lindsay at her worst - late nights and early mornings when she is absolutely plastered needs assistance avoiding celebrity gossip media.
Some authorities quoted by TMZ cite Lindsay's "erratic behavior" and "attitude," both of which have grown progressively worse over the last several months.
According to reports, during one of Lindsay's crazier nights out recently, the police became so concerned they discussed taking her in for a 5150 evaluation.
Also known as the Britney Spears psychiatric hold.

Officers on the scene ultimately decided against it, as she didn't meet all the criteria for a 5150. The train wreck could still take care of herself ... technically.
Over the weekend, we reported that professionals and confidants close to Lindsay fear she's going to die if she doesn't get help for substance abuse ... now.
Here's hoping she heeds the warnings and ends up like Britney - alive, well, and with a career that's as successful as ever, as opposed to the fatal alternative.
