Judge Stephanie Sautner just could not help herself.
After seeing Lindsay Lohan roll into court this morning after initially calling in sick, then changing her mind at the last second, she had to get a dig in.
"I'm glad to see you're feeling better," Sautner said.
Sautner was referring to the BS note her lawyer sent, claiming LiLo had an upper respiratory infection and could not fly from NYC to LA for court.
After TMZ busted Lindsay smoking, she apparently got wind of the celebrity news site's story and decided to high-tail it to LA last night after all.
This absurdity wasn't lost on Sautner, obviously.
Lindsay, who faces charges of lying to police after her summer car crash, also faces possible jail time for violating her probation. It's not looking good.
She officially cut ties with attorney Shawn Holley and put her fate in the hands of NYC attorney Mark Heller, who arrived to court to rep her today.
Sautner asked if she was comfortable with the change; Lindsay, who fired Holley for unknown reasons earlier this month, reluctantly said it was.
After Sautner gave Heller permission to rep LiLo, he then tried to charm the judge, telling her they had a NYC connection since she was once a Big Apple detective.
The judge noted that flattery would get him nowhere fast. BURN!
Sautner also reiterated that Lindsay could eventually be found not guilty in the lying case, but her probation (for her jewelry theft conviction) could still be revoked.
The standard of proof is lower for probation violations than for the crimes themselves, so she could be staring at a whole mess of jail time either way.
Her next hearing is scheduled for March 1.
At least Lindsay Lohan looked good, rocking a SEXY blue Chanel dress to court today along with Celine shades and a pair of Louboutins on her feet.
This is a girl who's broke. Just saying.
