BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Lindsay Lohan was taken into
custody Tuesday - a bit late, but without incident - to begin
serving her jail sentence for a probation violation.
The actress rose and was handcuffed behind her back after a
brief hearing. She arrived at court about 10 minutes late,
prompting Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel to begin
calling other matters.
The judge told Lohan's attorney and a prosecutor that she wanted
to meet with them later Tuesday to discuss issues in the case.
Lohan was accompanied to court by her mother, Dina and younger
sister Ali, who wiped away tears after her sister was taken into a
lockup. The actress' father, Michael Lohan, was also present.
Revel ordered officials not to allow Lohan to serve any of her
sentence on house arrest or work release, but she is likely to
spend much less time in custody than her three-month sentence.
The judge determined two weeks ago that the "Mean Girls" star
violated her probation by missing seven alcohol education classes
Lohan has been sentenced to 90 days in jail and three months in
rehab but is likely to serve far less time due to jail
She has been on probation since August 2007 after pleading
guilty to misdemeanor drug charges and no contest to three driving
Lohan is expected to serve her sentence in isolation at a
suburban Los Angeles jail that has housed other starlets, including
Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton, Michelle Rodriguez and Lohan for 84
minutes in 2006.
