Lohan had been scheduled to take a flight out of JFK Airport on Saturday. She opted instead for a flight on Sunday. However, she got off the plane at the last minute because she believed there was a problem with the plane. Specifically, the troubled actress felt that fuel was leaking.
It's unclear where that thought came from, but Lohan told friends that 35 other people disembarked the plane as well because they too felt it was unsafe. However, even though it took off an hour late and was diverted to Las Vegas, the flight still arrived in Los Angeles last night at 11:30 p.m. PDT.
Lohan eventually found a flight, tweeting at around 4:00 a.m. PDT and thanking Mr. Pink, which is an energy drink company, for lending her a private jet. She has to make it to court by 8:30 a.m., though, and reports are that the plane won't land until 6:30 - 7:00 a.m. PDT.
Lohan will have to drive 20 miles to get to the hearing at Airport Courthouse -- in rush hour, no less. Sources say that Lohan is not alone on the flight. Although her mother Dina opted out of the trip, Lindsay Lohan is traveling with her ex-assistant Gavin Doyle, who was the one who told the authorities the truth, that she was driving the car during her Pacific Coast Highway accident last summer.
Lohan had originally claimed otherwise.
Furthermore, Lohan could face up to 240 days in jail if convicted. If she loses the case, prosecutors will ask for the maximum in terms of her probation violation -- due to lying to the police -- for her jewelry theft case. They will not, however, ask for any jail time for the lying to the police charge, meaning 240 days would be the maximum she could serve.
Sources say that assuming the judge sentences Lohan to the maximum, based on the current formula and the fact that she's a repeat probation violator, the actress would actually serve between 60 and 90 days.
