Lindsay Lohan Shows Up 40 Minutes Late For Morgue Community Service
Lindsay Lohan arrived late to her first day of community service at the county morgue Thursday and was turned away, another mishap in the actress’ effort to prove to a judge that she is complying with terms of her probation.
The actress had been told to arrive at 8 a.m. for an orientation session but got there 40 minutes late instead. The actress was told to try again on Friday, but will have to arrive one hour earlier than scheduled.
Steve Honig, Lohan’s spokesman, said in a statement that the actress was late because she didn’t know which entrance to report to and “and confusion caused by the media waiting for her arrival.”
The late arrival at the morgue came a day after she was scolded by a judge for being terminated from a community service assignment at a women’s shelter. The hearing ended with Lohan’s probation being revoked and her being led from court in handcuffs. She later posted $100,000 bail and was released.
She remains on probation for a pair of drunken driving arrests in 2007 and a misdemeanor theft case filed earlier this year after she was accused of taking a $2,500 necklace without permission. She pleaded no contest in that theft case.
Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner ordered the actress to complete 16 hours of work at the morgue before a Nov. 2 hearing.
The actress posted a message from her Twitter account today: “With all of the stress and pressure from yesterday and today, I’ve never been so happy to go to therapy!!!!”
On a more serious note, Dr. Drew Pinsky predicted that Lohan would be dead within a year. He bravely alleged that Lindsay had graduated from street drugs to prescription medications that would put her in a grave, he said, like Amy Winehouse.
