Mere hours before she was scheduled to be in court, Lindsay Lohan exited her flight from New York to Los Angeles late Sunday night.
The actress will reportedly not make it to her court-mandated appearance Monday morning regarding a potential probation violation, reckless driving and lying to police, according to TMZ. The news site reported that the judge will issue Lohan a bench warrant if she doesn’t appear in court.
TMZ claims that the 26-year-old, who showed up late for her original flight, exited right before takeoff in fear that the plane was unsafe due to a fuel leak and would be experiencing a one- hour delay. Thirty-five other passengers left the aircraft with Lohan.
The actress was grounded at the airport until she tweeted a thank you to the energy drink company, Mr. Pink, for lending her a private jet.
TMZ is reporting that the flight will arrive at Van Nuys, Calif., airport at 8:11 a.m., 20 miles away from the court house. Lohan’s court date is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m.
If convicted, prosecutors reportedly want to give Lohan the maximum 240 days in jail and two years of probation for allegedly lying to the Santa Monica Police Department, claiming her assistant was driving her rented Porsche at the time of the crash.
Lohan’s assistant, who only goes by the name “James,” later told officials that the actress was indeed behind the wheel and admitted that Lohan’s camp was trying to bribe him to lie about the incident, as reported by the Huffington Post.
As Lohan is a repeat offender, if convicted, she will most likely have to complete probation and serve an estimated 60-90 days in jail, according to TMZ.
