Authorities want DNA sample, fingerprints from Lindsay Lohan

February 9, 2011 | 11:00 am

L.A. prosecutors have formally charged Lindsay Lohan with felony grand theft in connection with a necklace she allegedly stole from a Venice jewelry store.

In the criminal complaint, prosecutors said they want a DNA sample and fingerprint sample from Lohan.  "Willful refusal to provide the samples and impressions is a crime," the complaint said.

She will be arraigned Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. at the Airport Courthouse.

Lohan already is on probation, and she also faces a criminal investigation in Riverside County involving allegations that she shoved a worker at the Betty Ford Center. She has not immediately commented on the latest charge, but her attorney has released a statement saying the actress would fight any criminal charges.

Last week, Los Angeles Police Department detectives presented the results of their investigation into the alleged theft to prosecutors. Detectives investigated whether Lohan stole a "one-of-a-kind" necklace that went missing last month from a Venice jewelry store not far from where she lives.

Here is the full criminal complaint filed by prosecutors:

The undersigned is informed and believes that:
