Lindsay Lohan picked a good day to skip court.
As expected, the trouble-magnet Liz & Dick star was missing in action as her probation was formally revoked this morning in a Los Angeles courtroom—a development that could eventually land her back in jail.
Lohan's attorney, Shawn Holley, was able to continue the court hearing to Jan. 15, when Lohan will be formally charged with three misdemeanor charges stemming from a June car crash in Santa Monica.
Authorities say Lohan, who was on her way to the set to shoot Liz & Dick, lied to police when she claimed wasn't behind the wheel.
She faces counts of willfully resisting, delaying or obstructing a police officer or emergency medical technician; giving false information to a police officer; and driving a vehicle on a highway with willful and wanton disregard for the safety of person or property. All three counts are misdemeanors.
Lohan remains on summary probation after pleading no contest to stealing a necklace back on March 29. The only condition was that she obey all laws, so as soon as the Santa Monica crash charges were filed, Los Angeles prosecutors moved to revoke her probation.
The actress has already completed 120 days of her sentence, so the maximum jail time she could face for probation violation is 245 days.
Outside the courtroom, Lohan attorney Shawn Holley told E! News that Lindsay is not required to appear at the next hearing, and the attorney plans to have the entire situation resolved so that Lohan will never have to appear.
Regardless, at some point Lohan will have to turn herself in for booking, which means we will get another portrait for her mug-shot collection.
Meanwhile, Lohan is also due back in New York court on Jan. 7 for an arraignment for her alleged assault of Tiffany Mitchell.
