Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan told authorities she was late to her appointment at the morgue because she did not know where to go and was delayed by the media, coroner's officials said.

The actress had arranged to arrive at 8 a.m. for orientation, but did not arrive until 8:40 a.m. when she was turned away and considered a no-show, coroner's officials said.

Although she said she did not know where to go, Assistant Coroner Chief Ed Winter said she has been at the office before for a drunk driving program she attended after her drunk driving conviction.

Later, Lohan tweeted an apology: "With all of the stress and pressure from yesterday and today, I've never been so happy to go to therapy!!!! Also, I'm sorry for the confusion that I may of caused to those at the Coroner's office. Won't happen again, now I know where to go! Thank you for your help."

Lohan is required to work 16 hours a week at the morgue in two eight-hour shifts.
