Lindsay Lohan a no-show at county morgue

Lindsay LohanActress Lindsay Lohan, who was handcuffed and briefly jailed Wednesday after a judge found that she had violated her probation, may be in more trouble after failing to show up at the morgue Thursday morning for community service.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner told Lohan to perform 16 hours of community service at the county morgue each week until a hearing next month to decide whether Lohan should be sent back to jail. Under the program, she is required to show up at the coroner's office at 7 a.m. to perform her eight-hour shifts.

Lohan's attorney Shawn Holley told the judge the actress would start on Thursday.

But by 9 a.m., she still had not arrived at the morgue and would be considered a "no show," coroner's officials said. Even if she does turn up, she will not be allowed to work because the 7 a.m. start time is mandatory.

It is unclear when Lohan plans to perform the work.

Lohan earlier this year served 35 days under house detention at her home in Venice, in lieu of a 120-day jail sentence, because her misdemeanor shoplifting conviction was a nonviolent offense.
