Lindsay spends 84 minutes in jail

Lindsay Lohan reported to the Lynwood jail on Thursday to serve her minimum 24-hour sentence as part of her plea deal in her two DUI cases - and checked out 84 minutes later. According to the sheriff's department website, the actress turned herself in at 10:30 a.m. and was released at 11:54 a.m. The jail has a long-standing policy of releasing non-violent offenders early due to overcrowding. "Ms. Lohan was cooperative," said a sheriff's spokesperson. "She was fingerprinted, photographed, and put in a holding cell, but was let go due to our early release policy." On Monday, Lohan began her court-ordered community service at an American Red Cross blood services facility in an LA suburb. Although the actress was sentenced in August to four days in jail for her second DUI conviction, prosecutors agreed she could serve 10 days of community service in lieu of two days behind bars. Lohan was also given credit for one day served from her July arrest. The 21-year-old is on probation for three years and must complete an 18-month alcohol program. Her lawyer has not commented.
