We apologize for this intrusion into a usually Lohan-free zone. Just let us get this out and Zap2it will go back to our usual mostly-Bieber celeb coverage.
Lindsay Lohan has officially begun serving time for stealing a necklace. On Thursday morning at 5:02 a.m., Lohan surrendered herself to the Lynwood Jail, where she was found eligible for house arrest. She was fitted with an electronic ankle bracelet that monitors her whereabouts — something she’s used to, though her last ankle accessory monitored her sobriety, not her GPS coordinates.
“Ms. Lohan will be under the supervision of the sheriff’s department and
her release date is expected to be around June 29,” says L.A. Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore. “She
will serve about 35 days on home detention.” She’ll be out just in time to celebrate her 25th birthday on July 2.
He also said that she is confined to the “interior premises” of her swanky Venice Beach townhouse, though recent photos make it clear that her rooftop deck totally counts. She’s been snapped “relaxing” on said deck while reading scripts and taking drags from a Blu Cig — an electronic cigarette said to be a healthier alternative to the real deal.
The photos, by the way, were sent out by Blu Cigs themselves — Lohan posed for the pics as part of a celebrity endorsement. Good to see she’s still “working” while locked up! TMZ reports that Lindsay sees the month of confinement as a “time to relax, focus on her recovery and figure out her new game plan for her life and career.”
She also stocked up on art supplies before the Sheriff grounded her, and she plans to do plenty of painting.
The specifics of Lohan’s home confinement are unknown, but according to Los Angeles law, she may be allowed to leave home for certain obligations, including doctor’s appointments, counseling sessions, religious services, and community service.
