Actress Lindsay Lohan has submitted a doctor's note to skip her Los Angeles court appearance on Wednesday after reportedly falling ill while in New York.
The troubled actress is due to appear in court to fight claims she violated her probation from a 2011 necklace theft conviction by allegedly lying to a police officer following a car crash in California last summer.
She faces three charges from the incident: giving false information to a police officer, obstructing or resisting a police officer in the performance of his duty and reckless driving, which carries a jail sentence of over 240 days.
However, it appears Lohan won't be well enough to attend her first hearing in person on Tuesday, her new lawyer, Mark Heller, filed legal papers notifying the judge that she has been ordered by doctors not to fly after coming down with an upper respiratory infection.
In his court documents, Heller claimed Lohan had been examined by a Big Apple medic on Saturday, the same day she was photographed shopping in Manhattan. Those pictures have since surfaced on TMZ.com.
The new charges are the latest in a slew of legal problems for the star. She is also battling allegations of assault in New York, where she is accused of punching a female club-goer during a night out in November.
Why even report this garbage? The Judges that she goes before are so soft on this chick. What a joke she has made out of each and everyone she faces. Throw the loser in the can and make her pay for her stay, that way there won't be any excuse for the "overcrowded" line.
MSN and other agencies throw this trash in our face every time she goes out on the town...bye MSN!
