Lindsay Lohan didn’t take long to add another complication as she struggles to keep herself out of jail. Reuters reports that the actress hit a snag when she attempted to show up today for community service at the L.A. County Morgue.
Lohan arrived late for her appointment and was refused entry to the facility, the story reports.
Lohan took some of the blame, but added that media coverage of the event was partly at fault. “Everything is all cleared up,” she said through a spokesman, according to the report.
As previously reported, a judge revoked Lohan’s probation yesterday, putting the actress at risk of additional jail time. The key issue appeared to be Lohan’s failure to meet her requirements for community service at L.A.’s Downtown Women’s Shelter, where she had been ordered to perform 360 hours of service. The morgue was also a part of the original order, with Lohan expected to put in 120 hours there.
Speaking of today’s mishap at the morgue, Lohan’s spokesman Steve Honig said in a statement: "Lindsay arrived at the morgue approximately 20 minutes late and will be returning for orientation tomorrow."
Honig’s statement adds: "Her lateness was due to a combination of not knowing what entrance to go through and confusion caused by the media waiting for her arrival. Lindsay spoke with the supervisors at the morgue, they showed her how to get in and everything is all cleared up.”
The Reuters report notes: “Thursday’s events were yet another blow for the ‘Mean Girls’ actress after her lawyer, Shawn Holley, told Judge Stephanie Sautner on Wednesday that Lohan would honor her commitments at the morgue, beginning Thursday.
