Only moments ago, troubled actress Lindsay Lohan left her home in West Hollywood, California to make the trip to the Beverly Hills courthouse where she will surrender to authorities to begin serving her 90 day jail sentence.
The trip should take between 10 and 15 minutes.
The Mean Girls star, 24, was ordered earlier this month to show up in court at 8:30 a.m. PT on Tuesday, July 20 — or face a bench warrant arrest — to begin serving her 90 day jail sentence for violating conditions of her parole related to her 2007 DUI conviction.
Assuming she does not seek to appeal the judge’s sentence, Lindsay will be taken into custody immediately and be taken to a women’s detention facility in Lynwood, California, which is near Los Angeles. Due to overcrowding at the jail, she is expected to serve only a fraction of her 90 day sentence – perhaps only 3 weeks.
As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, Lindsay spent her final night of freedom dealing with a game of lawyer swap, after Robert Shapiro, best known for being part of O.J. Simpson‘s defense team, informed the Judge Marsha Revel he was no longer representing her.
Shawn Chapman Holley — Lindsay’s original attorney who abruptly quit after learning the starlet was shopping for a new lawyer — never signed the substitution of attorney form last Friday, a move that would have rid her of the case for good.
Chapman Holley is expected to be in court Tuesday morning, acting once again as Lindsay’s attorney.
After her jail stint, Lindsay has been ordered to attend rehab for 90 days.
In a message posted on her Twitter Monday night , Lindsay seemed to joke about her upcoming court appearance, saying: “The only “bookings” that I’m familiar with are Disney Films, never thought that I’d be “booking” into Jail… Eeeks.”
Lindsay’s father Michael is at the courthouse.
