Lindsay Lohan expected at county morgue at 8 a.m.
The actress was scheduled to arrive at 8 a.m. for orientation -– and several radio and TV crews and members of the paparazzi were anxiously awaiting her arrival.
On Thursday, she arrived in her Porsche Panamera 40 minutes late at a back entrance to the facility. She was ultimately turned away and considered a no-show because prompt arrival is mandatory, coroner's officials said.
Lohan tweeted an apology: "With all of the stress and pressure from yesterday and today, I've never been so happy to go to therapy!!!! Also, I'm sorry for the confusion that I may of caused to those at the Coroner's office. Won't happen again, now I know where to go! Thank you for your help."
Lohan is in trouble with Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner, who earlier this week ordered her handcuffed and jailed after she violated terms of her probation in her misdemeanor shoplifting case by failing to attend community service at the Downtown Women's Center. She had missed nine appointments, prompting the judge to scold her for deliberately blowing off the required 360 hours. She has completed only 21 of the hours.
She now must work 120 hours at the morgue, serving two eight-hour shifts a week.
