I know yesterday was Weirdo Wednesday so bringing up Lindsey Lohan up today feels somewhat redundant, but I just can’t help myself. Sometimes the idiot factor demands public observation.
I’m not going to rehash the problems of little miss Lohan. From TMZ to People magazine, her issues for the past couple of years have been cannon fodder for the entertainment rags. I was pretty sure she is an alcoholic, I was leaning towards the fact that she might even be a drug addict, but am willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. I had no idea her sticky fingers went further than rum bottles.
Apparently Miss Lohan has issues of property ownership as well. Lindsey stood in a Los Angeles courtroom yesterday and plead “Not Guilty” to felony grand theft of a $2,500 necklace. This is a little more serious than her DUI. Lohan faces three years in the Big House and I’m not talking Playboy Mansion.
Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz set Lohan’s bail at $40,000 and warned that if she violated the law while free on bail he would have her arrested and held.
Prosecutors claim Lohan took the necklace from the Venice store on Jan. 22, weeks after she was released from rehab.
I will give Lindsey Credit for one thing. She is entertaining. Perhaps she will some day parlay that into a successful film career. In the meantime, staying out of jail is going to take a real performance.
