Well, our long national nightmare is over.
Lindsay Lohan has been freed from her stint in a California women’s prison after 13 long days of incarceration. There were hysterical fits, there were protests and it was alleged the troubled starlet didn’t even have a pillow to sleep on, but Lohan still had to serve thirteen WHOLE days of her original 90 day sentence before being whisked away to a rehab center in the wee hours of the morning by a convoy of police vehicles.
Lohan, under the supervision of the L.A. County Probation Department, was popped from the joint at 1:35am Pacific, and checked in to the UCLA Medical Center at 1:54am. There was even a cunning ruse to trick paparazzi!
In an elaborate plot to diffuse media interest, two black Cadillac Escalades drove from Lynwood to the high-end residential facility Morningside Recovery in Orange County, where Lohan had been slated to check-in.
As for her rehab destination, Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s spokesman Steve Whitmore would only say:
“She has been sent directly to her next destination, which is a treatment center… this concludes her custody,” Whitmore told waiting media, outside the jail.
Judge Martha Revel changed the location of Lohan’s rehab this past weekend amid concerns the actress could acquire drugs in the facility at which she was originally expected to arrive.
