Lindsay Lohan in/ out of jail on Thursday
Lindsay Lohan turned herself in to police to start serving her term at Lynwood jail on Thursday. LiLo stayed for about 84 minutes.
Lohan was sentenced to serve 24 hours in jail, and the recovering alcoholic and drug addict decided to serve her term at the same facility where Paris Hilton served for violating her probation.
Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore says Lohan surrendered to the Los Angeles County women's detention center in Lynwood at 10:30 a.m. Thursday to serve a one-day sentence for drunken driving. She was searched, fingerprinted and placed in a holding cell in the inmate reception area but got to keep her street clothes. She was released at 11:54 a.m.
Whitmore says Lohan met all criteria for reducing her sentence, including the fact that her offense was nonviolent.
He says Lohan got no special treatment, adding that the overcrowded lockup grants early release to some 30 to 50 women each day.
The 21-year-old actress was arrested earlier this year after crashing her Mercedes into a tree in Beverly Hills and later driving an SUV that chased the mother of Lohan's former personal assistant into Santa Monica.
In August, Lohan reached a plea deal on misdemeanor charges of drunken driving and cocaine possession that included a day in jail, community service and treatment.
