Lohan, 28, has been trying to reverse a downward slide ever since she was convicted for drunk driving in 2007.
While she’s definitely turned a corner, she’s still struggling to leave her past behind. A California judged slapped her on the hand this week for trying to dodge community service stemming from a 2012 reckless driving arrest.
She was ordered to re-do 125 hours of her 240-hour sentence after the judge concluded that her “service” fell short of requirements.
In one instance, she claimed she performed community service hours by allowing students to “shadow” her during her recent run in a West End theater production in London. No go, said the judge.
“She got to shake hands with people, and that’s community service,” Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White said in an interview last month when he sought a court review.
“I’d love to hang out with a celebrity all day and see their life, but that’s not community service,” he added.
Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, said the judge wasn’t interested in hearing Lindsay’s side of the story.
Lindsay’s run in the David Mamet play Speed the Plow marked her theater debut and was largely successful. She also reportedly has three movie projects in the works.
She attended a party in London last week to celebrate the launch of the British fashion magazine’s eighth issue, published by fashion photographer Rankin. The mag’s theme: “‘We’ve got Issues.”
In that sense, Lindsay was the perfect model. Check out her sizzling photos, let us know your thoughts and be sure to follow IM on Twitter. Your support is important to us.
