Lindsay Lohan isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed, so she actually thought a note from her doctor saying that she had a respiratory infection would do the trick to get her out of her court appearance today. And it might’ve worked if it weren’t for
those meddling kids! TMZ who had snappers on hand showing that she was shopping and smoking like a freight train in New York. So what’s a busted LiLo to do? Hop on the next flight to Los Angeles, of course.
She was ordered by the judge to appear in court for today’s hearing. Her former lawyer Shawn Holley appeared in court on her behalf two weeks ago to enter in her not guilty plea in her car crash and lying to cops case. Since, Lindsay fired Shawn and hired Mark Heller, a New York based attorney. Then, she begged Shawn to represent her again, but we’re guessing Shawn told her to pay up or shut up. Today, Lindsay and her mother Dina made a late night flight to Los Angeles.
The photos showing her having a good time shopping and smoking didn’t help her “I’m too sick to fly” excuse, so we’re guessing Lindsay is showing up to avoid a bench warrant. Does Stephanie Sautner read TMZ?
She is currently facing three misdemeanor charges: lying to police, reckless driving and obstruction. The police said that she claimed that she wasn’t driving the car when it smacked into the back of a dump truck on the Pacific Coast Highway. Later, it was determined that she was the driver of the vehicle.
She could face anywhere between 90 days and a year in the slammer if she’s found guilty. In addition, she could receive 245 days for violating her probation. Stay tuned as this story unfolds….
