Lindsay Lohan Facing Felony Over Necklace Theft

February 9, 2011

Prosecutors will formally charge Lindsay Lohan today with felony grand theft related to a necklace that was allegedly taken from a California jewelry store last month.

Will she FINALLY see some jail time for SOMETHING? Hard to say. We’ll have to wait and see…

From CNN:

The charge comes five weeks after the actress was released from court-ordered drug rehabilitation and less than three weeks before a judge said he might free her from supervised probation from a 2007 drunken driving conviction.

The actress “allegedly walked out of the store with the necklace on January 22,” a statement from the district attorney’s office said. “The owner reported the theft to the Los Angeles Police Department, which investigated the allegation and presented evidence to the D.A.’s office last week.”

The “one-of-a-kind necklace,” which is valued at $2,500, was handed over to police just before they were to execute a search warrant to look for the jewelry in Lohan’s Venice, California, apartment last week, police said.


Lindsay Lohan Heading Back to Jail

September 24, 2010

After failing a court-mandated drug test, actress Lindsay Lohan has been sent to jail, without bail, until October 22. On that date, there will be a probation violation hearing.

I didn’t get to see any video, but I heard that she was taken from the courtroom in handcuffs.

From E! Online:

The judge laid down the law and ordered the trouble-magnet star hauled away in handcuffs  for using cocaine while on probation—a screw-up that led to last week’s failed drug test and subsequent Twitter mea culpa.

Her probation was revoked, no bail was set and she will likely remain behind bars at her old haunt—the Century Regional Correctional Facility in Lynwood, Calif.—until her next hearing on Oct. 22.

“It is a wake-up call,” father Michael Lohan told E! News at the Beverly Hills courthouse this morning. “She needs to get into rehab and get away from some of those people.”

Lindsay Lohan Released from Lynwood Correctional Facility

August 2, 2010

Well…that didn’t take long!

Actress Lindsay Lohan was released from the Lynwood Correctional Facility early this morning after less than two weeks in jail. I think I win the pool for being closest. I said three weeks 🙂

From CNN:

Lohan was released at 1:35 a.m. (4:35 a.m. ET), Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Benjamin Grubb said. He said she was taken to a treatment facility.

After Lohan was taken to jail July 20, a sheriff’s spokesman said her stay would likely last between 13 and 15 days.

Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel sentenced Lohan to 90 days in jail for missing alcohol counseling sessions in violation of her probation.

But the sheriff, who runs the jail, has the power to release prisoners early because of jail overcrowding.

Lindsay Lohan Gets 90 Day in Jail

July 6, 2010

Judge Marsha Revel has found Lindsay Lohan in violation of probation and from early reports, it looks like the actress will be  serving 90 days in prison.

From the Los Angeles Times:

Judge Marsha N. Revel stated several instances over the last few years in which the actress lied about taking drugs and drinking.

“It’s like someone who cheats but doesn’t think it’s cheating if they don’t get caught,” Revel said.

Before sentencing, a tearful Lohan addressed the court, saying “as far as I knew I was in compliance with my programs.”

“I wasn’t trying to get special treatment,” the actress said. “I have to provide for myself. I have to work. Having said that, I did everything to balance my jobs and showing up. I’m not taking this as a joke. It’s my life. It’s my career…I take responsibility for my actions. I’ve tried to do the best I can. It’s been such a long haul, I don’t want you to think that I don’t respect you.”

Prosecutors had argued that the star of “Mean Girls,” “Freaky Friday” and “Herbie Fully Loaded” failed to comply with the weekly attendance directive for her alcohol education classes. An operator of the class testified that Lohan had nine absences.

Michael Phelps and Sarah Palin Help to Boost SNL Ratings

September 15, 2008

It seemed with all the buzz around the season premier of Saturday Night Live that you had to expect the episode would draw great ratings. Now, all we need is Barack Obama and John McCain to appear and, hell, maybe have a debate on the show. Or at least SNL actors playing their roles!!

From Reuters:

With a little help from Tina Fey doubling as Sarah Palin and from guest host Michael Phelps, “Saturday Night Live” logged its best season premiere since 2001.

It was also the most-watched “SNL” for any date since December 17, 2002, when former vice president Al Gore was the guest host and jam band Phish was the musical guest.

“SNL” averaged a 7.4 household rating/18 share in the top 55 “metered” markets, Nielsen Media Research said Sunday. Saturday’s program was up 64 percent compared to last year’s season premiere on September 29. The top market was Baltimore, the hometown of Olympics hero Phelps.

From Trendhunter Magazine:

The combined power of Tina Fey as Sarah Palin and guest host Michael Phelps has earned Saturday Night Live its best season premier since 2001.

It seems there is just no stopping the mania of Sarah Palin. Even though celebrities like Lindsay Lohan and Matt Damon have explicitly attacked her, everyone else seems captivated by the former beauty pageant queen.
