Lindsay Lohan was handcuffed and taken into custody on Wednesday morning after a judge ruled that the troubled actress violated the terms of her probation. Lohan’s bail was set at $100,000; she is expected to post bond before the end of the day.
Before being cuffed, Lohan spent her Wednesday morning being lectured by Los Angeles Judge Stephanie Sautner for failing to complete the terms of her community service. Earlier this year, Lohan was ordered to complete 360 hours at the Downtown Women’s Center but was terminated from the shelter after blowing off nine community service appointments.
Lohan has since attempted to fulfill the court’s order by volunteering at the Red Cross, but Judge Sautner says none of the hours completed for the organization will count towards her sentence. “Nobody has the power to change my sentence,” a clearly agitated Sautner remarked. According to the judge, Lohan should have immediately enrolled at the Los Angeles County Morgue to begin serving another part of the court order after being fired from the Women’s Center, but she did not.
“Probation is a gift,” the judge admonished.
According to court documents, Lohan has reportedly only completed approximately 21 of her 360 hours of community service.
Once released from jail, Lohan will have to serve at least 16 hours at the morgue before appearing at a hearing on November 2.
UPDATE: Lindsay’s rep just released this statement to RumorFix: “Lindsay is hoping this matter will be resolved on November 2 and the Court will reinstate probation and allow her to continue fulfilling her community service.”
