Lindsay Lohan Back In Court For The 20Th Time — But Who’s Counting?
(CNN) — With 19 court appearances in the last six years, actress Lindsay Lohan has now appeared before a judge more often than she has in movies.
And yet, the 26-year-old’s legal troubles — like a car wreck that commands rubbernecking — continue to make headlines.
Lohan’s latest cameo takes place Tuesday to face a judge who revoked her probation.
The 26-year-old actress was put on probation after she was convicted in 2011 on charges related to the theft of a necklace.
But then last summer, she crashed her car in Santa Monica. Authorities said she was not only recklessly driving, she gave false information to a police officer and then resisted a police officer.
So the Santa Monica city attorney slapped four misdemeanor charges against her.
That prompted a Los Angeles County Superior Court commissioner to revoke Lohan’s probation last month and order her to appear in court Tuesday.
The case is just one in a long list of legal trouble for the actress, whose struggle with drugs and alcohol has seen her bounce in and out of court 19 times and to five rehabilitation facilities since 2007.
In November, she was charged with misdemeanor assault after allegedly punching a woman at a Manhattan nightclub.
In the Santa Monica case, Lohan is accused of telling police her assistant was driving the Porsche, while witnesses told investigators they saw Lohan behind the wheel.
The car crash took place while Lohan was on her way to the set for the filming of “Liz & Dick.”
Lohan’s performance in the TV movie was universally panned. Critics called it a different kind of wreck.
