It's amazing Lindsay Lohan got off so easily in her theft case, eluding jail and earning a house arrest wrist-slap, given what her probation report shows.
Let's just say she's not a model citizen for the corrections department.
Lohan drank alcohol the night she scuffled with Betty Ford employee Dawn Holland late last year, and failed a random alcohol test after she left rehab.
The report also states that Lohan, who was accused of ganking a $2,500 necklace, "has been suspected of similar conduct in other jewelry stores."
No charges were ever filed, but that can't be said of most people.
The probation report says Lohan indeed drank alcohol after sneaking out from the Betty Ford Center in December, citing local police interviews.
Charges that she battered Holland, a rehab employee that night were dropped for lack of evidence, despite this 911 call from both women.
Lohan went on to test positive for alcohol in February, one week after her assistant surrendered the allegedly stolen necklace to the LAPD!"The probation officer believes that substance abuse is the root of the defendant's problems," the report says, although L.A. Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner disagreed with that assessment on Wednesday.
Instead, Lohan was ordered to psychological counseling instead of more rehab, in addition to a four-month jail term and community service.
For now, Lohan will not be tested for drug and alcohol use.
She is expected to be allowed to serve her 120-day jail term for violating probation under home detention and is eligible for early release.
Both good behavior and budget constraints could dramatically shorten the time she's stuck at home. Lohan just released a statement saying:
"I am glad to be able to move on with my life and my career. I support the judge's decision and hold myself accountable for being in this situation."
I have already started my community service at the Downtown Women's Center and thank everyone there for their warm welcome."
"I hope to be able to fulfill my obligation without press attention. I think the spotlight should be on issues such as homelessness and domestic violence instead of on me."
What do you think? Did Lohan get off too lightly?
