Lohan keeps sense of humor on eve of jail stint -- even after losing attorney

July 19, 2010 |  9:21 pm

Hours before Lindsay Lohan was scheduled to enter an L.A. jail, her attorney has quit the case. But the actress hasn't lost her sense of humor.

Lohan posted a message on Twitter this evening that summarized her fall from grace. "The only 'bookings' that I'm familiar with are Disney Films. never thought that I'd be "booked" into Jail...eeeks," she wrote.

Lohan is due to begin a 90-day sentence Tuesday by surrendering to Judge Marsha N. Revel at a Beverly Hills courtroom. The judge earlier this month gave her the sentence for violating probation in her 2007 driving under-the-influence conviction.

Because of jail overcrowding, Lohan is expected to serve only a fraction of her sentence.

Famed Hollywood attorney Robert Shapiro signed on as Lohan's new attorney last week. On Friday, he issued a statement saying Lohan would follow Revel's orders. But a Sheriff's Department source told The Times that Shapiro was no longer on the case as of Monday evening.

He could not immediately be reached for comment.
