Lindsay Lohan mug shot: Latest police photo joins growing list

Linday's Lohan latest mug shot is garnering lots of attention after she turned herself in to Santa Monica police following a no-contest plea to misdemeanor charges stemming from a crash on Pacific Coast Highway.

The booking was largely a formality after L.A. County Superior Court Judge James Dabney sentenced Lohan to five days in jail as part of a plea agreement; the time will be served as part of her 90-day stint in a locked-down rehabilitation facility.

Lohan was released immediately after the booking that included a new mug shot to add to half a dozen existing mug shots of the actress. In the last mug shot, she sported dark hair and looked less than thrilled. "Lindsay Lohan mug shot" was a popular online search term Wednesday.

The "Mean Girls" star avoided jail Monday in a last-minute deal by pleading no contest to misdemeanor reckless driving and providing false information to police. A charge of willfully resisting, obstructing or delaying an officer was dismissed. In addition to spending 90 days in rehab, she must also spend 18 months in psychotherapy and serve 30 days of community service.

In pleading no contest, Lohan admitted she had violated her probation in a 2011 shoplifting case. Dabney sentenced her to 180 days in jail, but that sentence was stayed. The judge said that if Lohan met the terms of this deal, she wouldn't serve additional time behind bars.

But the judge warned her that there wouldn't be any discussion about probation if she violated the agreement, implying that she would be sent to jail. Lohan was also ordered to pay restitution to the driver of the truck that Santa Monica prosecutors said she hit June 18 while on her way to the set of the cable TV movie "Liz & Dick."

Mark Heller, the New York-based attorney now representing Lohan, said his client was "extremely gratified with the end result."

"I'm very confident that you won't be seeing Lindsay Lohan in any criminal courts any time in the future," Heller said outside the courthouse. "She has fully recognized all of the issues that have to be addressed, and I'm very confident she'll be able to move forward in her life with dignity, pride and respect."

The eleventh-hour deal didn't come without drama. Lohan made a last-minute dash from New York to enter the plea, apparently catching an overnight flight to Los Angeles on a private jet, according to her Twitter account.

"Thanks Mr. Pink for the private jet see you all in a few hours in LA," she tweeted early Monday.

But the flight was delayed and landed at LAX about 8:30 a.m., according to media reports. Lohan arrived at the courthouse nearly 50 minutes late. A woman threw gold glitter on the actress as she made her way past the media swarming outside.

Last week, Michael Lohan, Lindsay's father, retained an Orange County criminal law firm to assist in his daughter's defense if needed, saying he was "not at all comfortable with the poor representation she is getting" and that her "freedom and future are at stake."

Michael Lohan clashed with Heller as the attorney spoke to reporters after Monday's hearing, telling the lawyer to "go home." Michael Lohan and his daughter have a strained relationship that has played out in public, with the actress and her siblings frequently criticizing their father in interviews and on social media.

He was present in the courtroom Monday morning, but the two did not appear to communicate.
