Accused jewelry bandit Lindsay Lohan is, predictably, throwing out every excuse in the book in her efforts to somehow beat the rap on felony grand theft charges.
We've heard her whine that she was raised better than that, that the D.A. is out to get her, that the necklace isn't worth enough to make this a felony case, etc.
Her latest BS? Basic, at least: She was, like, so busy!

According to the police report, Lindsay's assistant gave cops this story: "Ms. Lohan was in possession of the necklace and wanted to give the necklace back to the store the day after she took it from the store, but she was very busy."
Oh, that explains it. Case closed.
As you may know, Lindsay was tipped off that a warrant had been issued for her place. She then had her assistant return the necklace she's accused of ganking.Lindsay's assistant told the cops that before going to the police station she tried returning the necklace to the jewelry store, but no one picked up the phone.
Fishy, to say the least. The cops don't buy it noting:
"There was no description of the stolen necklace given to Ms. Lohan, yet she gave the exact necklace in question to her assistant to return."
What's your gut tell you about the Lohan case?
