Lindsay Lohan is going to jail.
The troubled star surrendered in court this morning to begin serving a three-month sentence for violating the probation terms of her 2007 DUI conviction.
In reality, Lindsay may spend only about three weeks behind bars, due to the overcrowding of the facility she's headed to. Assuming she behaves herself.
Judge Marsha Revel did not allow the media to capture the exact moment of Linds' surrender (good for her, bad for us), before ordering her into custody.
"At this time, she will be remanded," the judge said as Lohan was about to be cuffed, adding "All cameras are ordered to be shut off, both still and video."
Revel said Lohan would not be eligible for house arrest or work release. She will also be required to report to probation within 24 hours of her release.
Lindsay Lohan did not speak in court this morning.
After cameras were shut off, deputies took her away and removed her belongings as old/new lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley and her family looked on.
"I love you, Lindsay," said Michael Lohan, who unfortunately showed.
Lindsay will now begin processing at the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood, Calif., where she will spend her sentence, however long that is.
Processing entails fingerprinting, photographing (new mug shots!), cell assignment,ankle monitor removal and a wardrobe change (orange jumpsuit!!).
Back in 2007, Lohan spent just 84 minutes at this same facility. Not long enough, apparently, to change her destructive behavior in any discernible way.
Here's hoping a few weeks or more does the trick this time around. What will be the biggest obstacle for her, no Twitter, no friends or no cigarettes?
We'll find out soon enough.
