Watch out Dina Lohan -- the cake police are on the hunt for you!
Lindsay Lohan’s mom was out and about in East Meadow, New York, on Wednesday when she stopped by a Carvel Ice Cream store, to buy a cake for her youngest son Cody's 14th birthday celebrations.
While at the counter, the high-profile mom said she produced a special Carvel promotional ‘Black’ card -- essentially a VIP card for Carvel ice cream lovers.
That's when Dina tells RadarOnline.com exclusively that the store employee went ballistic.
“The shop assistant said, ‘Do you have I.D.?’” Dina said.
“Next minute he he grabbed my arm and took my card and held it hostage and wouldn’t give me the cake!
"This guy was crazy!”
The Carvel ‘Black’ card is the ultimate status symbol of ice-cream.
Dina explained she and all the Lohans have 'Black' cards, gifting them free ice cream for 75 years.
However, her mistake was: she picked up 16-year-old daughter Ali’s card.
"I didn't think it be a problem," Dina said.
“I couldn’t believe this guy... it’s a family card, it just didn’t have my name on it.
"Next minute, four cop cars showed up, there’s a police helicopter over head and this guy makes it seem to the cops that I’m trying to use a stolen credit card -- and for what? Over a free ice cream?!”
A humiliated Dina said she explained the situation to the cops.
But when the men in black asked the Carvel employee to return Dina’s card, he wouldn’t budge.
“He wouldn’t give it back... not even to the cops!” Dina joked.
“Finally he gave up and gave me my card back. But he told me, ‘You can have the card, but you can’t have the cake!’
"It just shows how we get treated so much worse than regular people.”
It would seem that the big loser in the fiasco was the birthday boy, who was denied his favorite ice cream cake.
Now Dina is going to make Carvel pay.
“Just wait until Lindsay and Ali hear about this," she said.
"When Ali gets back, I’m going to bring her in everyday to this store -- and you can print that!”
