Lindsay Lohan, our favorite misguided starlet, is headed back to the courtroom today. Lately she seems to be appearing in court more than on TV! Today’s court appearance will center around the nightclub fight between the Punk’d star and psychic Tiffany Mitchell. Will Lindsay end up behind bars this time?
Lindsay Lohan has evaded jail time for awhile now. She’s skirted the laws of her probation time and time again, and many people think that this most recent incident could land her in the pokey. Lindsay is set to appear in Manhattan Criminal Court to fight third degree assault charges stemming from the infamous nightclub fight.
Lindsay’s lawyer is confident that the case will be dismissed, saying, “Once again, Lindsay Lohan is a victim of someone trying to capture their 15 minutes of fame. From my initial investigation, I am completely confident that the case will be resolved favorably and Lindsay Lohan will be totally exonerated.”
Back when the incident occurred, Lindsay was already on informal probation after being accused of stealing a diamond necklace. The judge presiding over the case said that if Lindsay was arrested again, jail time could follow.
In a bizarre twist, on the same day as the nightclub scuffle, charges were filed in California against Lindsay Lohan for reckless driving and giving false information to police, as her Ferrari slammed into the back of a dump truck. Lindsay originally said she wasn’t behind the wheel, but witness testimony, along with the testimony of her ex-assistant, proved that Lindsay WAS the driver.
We can’t help but wonder if Lindsay will be sentenced to jail. If she does end up behind bars, will she spend more time than she did before? Back in 2010, Lindsay spent a laughable 4.5 hours in jail after violating her probation, calling the prison “Cold” and “Scary”. I think it will take more than 4 hours to get Lindsay to straighten out! What do you think?
