Actress Lindsay Lohan was led away in handcuffs Wednesday after a judge revoked her probation, but reportedly still did not show up on her first day of community service at the Los Angeles County Morgue Thursday.
Judge Stephanie Sautner revoked the 25-year-old’s probation for failing to fulfill her community service obligations at a women’s shelter. Sautner also chastised Lohan for taking six months to complete a court-ordered Shoplifters Anonymous course and questioned how she could have attended her court-ordered weekly psychological counseling while she was in Europe from Sept. 9 to Oct. 5.
As a result the “Mean Girls” actress was taken to jail and later released on $100,000 bond. The judge also ordered her to complete 16 hours at the Los Angeles County Morgue before her next hearing on Nov. 2.
However, Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter reported that the actress did not show up to her first day of community service at the morgue. TMZ had reported that Lohan was scheduled start at 8 a.m., and by 8:20 the Coroner’s Office decided they were going to turn her away when she finally showed up.
Lohan could now be sent to jail for the fifth time. Her lawyer argued that the only reason she was slow to complete her community service was because she was forced to leave town for work commitments. Lohan herself tweeted her own form of defense before heading to court Wednesday, writing “I just want it to be known, that just because I was not followed and photographed during the times I’ve gone to community service, that does not mean that I wasn’t following my obligations (by going) to the court.”
Lohan was sentenced in June to complete 480 hours of community service by volunteering at a Los Angeles women’s shelter and cleaning the county morgue for a 2007 drunken driving case and a misdemeanor theft case this year.
