Lindsay Lohan was out of jail Monday after serving 4 1/2 hours of a 30-day sentence for violating her probation in jewelry-theft and drunk-driving cases.

Lohan entered the Century Regional Facility in Lynwood at 8:58 p.m. Sunday and was released before 2 a.m. Monday, riding away in a chauffeur-driven Cadillac Escalade.

She served only a short amount of time because of jail overcrowding and because her offense was nonviolent and came with a sentence of fewer than 90 days, officials said.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner allowed her to avoid a lengthy jail sentence last week, but warned Lohan that she could spend more time in jail if she slips up again.
