Lindsay Lohan Is 'Angry' About Jail Sentence
BY OLIVER JONES AND AARON PARSLEY
It's been a rough couple of days for Lindsay Lohan.
The actress returned to Lynwood Jail on Friday after a topsy-turvy day in court, and she is frustrated with the status of her jewelry theft case.
"She is fine," says producer Nathan Folks, who is a close friend of Lohan, 24. "Obviously, she is upset about [being sentenced to four months in jail]."
On Friday, a judge found Lohan, who is accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace, in violation of probation and sentenced her to the jail time and a hefty 480 hours of community service, which Folks admits was a "setback."
But she was allowed to post bail and released within hours of getting booked. Lohan remains free pending an appeal of the sentence, which legal experts say she has slim chance of winning.
"She is angry because she has been working so hard on turning her life around," says Folks, who insists Lohan is clean and sober. "She didn't do what they said she did. She didn't steal that necklace."
Still, Lohan is resigned to accept whatever decision comes down from the court when her trial begins June 3.
"She is ready to do her time. She wants to go to A.A. and N.A. and to serve her [more than] 400 hours [of community service]," Folks says. "She has already been doing lots of charity work."
In this courtroom sketch actress Lindsay Lohan is seen during a preliminary hearing at the LAX Airport Courthouse, Friday, April 22, 2011 in Los Angeles. Lohan was sentenced to 120 days in jail for a probation violation.
LOS ANGELES - Lindsay Lohan will soon be carrying a bucket around folks who've just kicked one.
The "Mean Girls" star has one week to enroll in the community service program at the Los Angeles County morgue, a judge ruled Friday.
She must serve 120 hours with the coroner, doing maintenance and janitorial work in areas where dead bodies are a common sight, a spokesman told the Daily News.
"She will empty trash, vacuum, clean restrooms," Asst. Chief Ed Winter of the Los Angeles County Coroner said.
"She won't be in the autopsy area. However, there will be some exposure to bodies. She'll see them but won't touch them."
Lohan completed a much shorter drunken-driving program at the morgue as part of her original sentence for back-to-back DUIs in 2007.
She watched a presentation and toured the crypts, but it was over in four hours.
Along with the new morgue service, Lohan must complete 360 hours at the Downtown Women's Center.
That could be a formidable task since she's facing a trial for her alleged necklace theft in early June and hopes to begin shooting a Gotti biopic with costars John Travolta and Joe Pesci in New York as early as September.
The "Freaky Friday" star, 24, also has a four-month jail sentence hanging over her head for violating her probation with the alleged necklace theft.
A judge sentenced her to the 120 days behind bars Friday, but her lawyer quickly filed an appeal. She was bailed out within hours, but her community service was not postponed.
Her appeal is expected to take months.
Meanwhile, if she loses at the theft trial, she could face a separate sentence up to one year in county jail.
The Gotti film's production company, Fiore Films, is standing by the decision to cast Lohan as Kim Gotti, daughter-in-law of the late John Gotti.
She's even set to appear on Jay Leno's "Tonight Show" Tuesday to talk about the role, a source told the News.
"She is still in the film provided she can fulfill her obligations," Fiore spokesman Steve Honig told the News.
"She has been cast in this role. She still has the role and we're very excited about her being in the movie," he said.
Honig said it was too early to talk about how far the movie's producers are willing to go to keep Lohan if her legal troubles get in the way.
"We're not going to speculate on 'What if this happens, what if that happens,'" he said.
"We're dealing with a few unknowns. Once we start understanding exactly what the situation is, that's when we can start making some decisions."
That girl who pretends to be Lindsay and hangs out in men's restrooms is back again
Former Olympic champion Audley Harrison claims he had an encounter with Lindsay Lohan over the weekend at Chateau Marmont ... while he was "in the toilet."
Harrison tweeted the above on his Twitter account. A source inside Chateau tells X17online exclusively:
"Lindsay was acting so crazy. She was drinking vodka and Red Bull and kept going in and out of the men's bathroom every ten minutes. We were all totally creeped out. She ... kept banging on the men's cubicle door calling for some guy named Andrew. It happened to be the pro boxer Audley Harrison. He came out of the bathroom and was telling everyone about it and laughing at her."
^ Awful...you'd think these impersonators and body doubles would have some respect...I'm sure Lindsay was really home with her family eating pizza and watch Dora the Explorer...
BTW- where are the cell phone cameras and my pirate mentality bartender brethren when these things happen? Surprising there is no one on the phone to TMZ....

^ Leave her alone sicko fans! This was like totalllyy a moment of creative frustration because the tabloid phenomenon and the internet media and sicko fans and stuff so she like had to get into that cubicle right away and get into advanced talks or at least final stages of negotiations asap! Of course as usual "the black kid" was there instead of Andrew - Lindsay set up again like that time some fool put his foot under the wheel of the car, and that time a selfish baby tried to stop her maserati, probably another stalker. She's just a young girl going through her college years in UC Morgue, UC Psych Ward and The Betty Ford School for Advanced Studies And Stuff*
