Lindsay Lohan cited for speeding Monday in West Hollywood [Updated]

Lindsay Lohan, whose court troubles have been well-documented, had another brush with the law Monday in West Hollywood. [Updated at 10:52 a.m.: An earlier version of this post had Lohan getting the ticket Sunday at 9 p.m.:]

The "Mean Girls" and "Herbie Fully Loaded" star was in the 400 block of San Vicente Boulevard around 2:30 p.m. when L.A. County sheriff's deputies clocked her going nearly double the speed limit -- 59 mph in a 30 mph zone, said sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore.

It was not immediately clear what Lohan was doing in the neighborhood, but she was cooperative and cited for speeding, Whitmore said.

Lohan was scheduled to appear at the Airport Courthouse on Wednesday for a hearing in connection with the alleged theft of a $2,500, "one-of-a-kind" necklace from a Venice jewelry store.

Several other people were cited in the area the same day, can we get thier names too? Especially the 2 off-duty cops with minors in thier car who did not get a ticket after being pulled over.

Interesting-can the Times get and post their names as well????

@ergie: Nobody cares about unknown, non-celebrity motorists getting tickets, much less a couple of off-duty cops (but how do you know they were O/D?). And are you suggesting that it should be perfectly okay to drive twice the speed limit on San Vicente?

Even with the threat of Lindsay Lohan going to prison for a felony, she still has no respect for the law. As far as I'm concerned, going double the speed limit is a violation of her probation and the judge should send her to jail for that.

John, ergie is just another apologist for misbehaving celebrities.

That girl has to be nuts. No one in their right mind would go double the speed limit with everything that is hanging over her head.

@John, it's the severity of the offense that should matter. You say no one cares about the unknowns. However, there is no reason for anyone to care about some celebrity getting a speeding ticket. That in itself is an invasion of privacy. Sounds like you are advocating the loss of privacy. Lindsay didn't stab 8 people in a NY subway. She was going over the speed limit. The doughnut eating cop/loser that posted that info should be fired. Oh wait, he's a cop. Never mind. Seriously, get a grip.

my point is no one should care if Lohan gets a speeding ticket either. There are much more important things going on in the news

If we, the public, were smart, we would revolt against the unconscionable fees that are assessed for tickets and other things today like we did when we voted overwhelmingly for Proposition 13 in 1978. See how fast issuing tickets would all of a sudden become passe except for most egregious violators if the maximium that could be assessed, including all the garbage fees, for an infraction was, say $50. Of course law enforcement would be vehemently against this, because lack of revenues translates into lack of funds to pay wages, and, therefore, reductions in the workforce. We need public safety, yes, but not the idiots that sit and hide for hours to nab one poor unsuspecting driver. What a waste of taxpayer money!

Thank you Lindsay for supporting,fiscally our State if convicted;I dont see why you cannot (fiscally). I have A HIGHER POWER that curtails me from being a menace to myself/public. It is yours if you ask for it!

Oh please.

well ergo, that's what happens when you are a celeb without any morals or ethics. if and when this sick person ever grows up and starts acting like a decent person, then YOU can start living your own life. also, there is more serious news and then there is this kind of news that falls under a lesser catagorie. get it now?
