Perhaps after considering an unpleasant alternative, Lindsay Lohan opted to fly with the flu.
The embattled actress was spotted tonight at New York's JFK Airport, where, a source tells E! News, she was trying to catch a flight to Los Angeles. A hearing pertaining to whether she has violated her latest term of probation is scheduled for tomorrow morning.
Lohan has been charged with obstruction, providing false information to an officer and driving with wanton disregard, all misdemeanors, stemming from her scary-looking car crash last summer on Malibu's Pacific Coast Highway.
Sautner was the judge who sentenced the 26-year-old to community service and probation after she copped to stealing a necklace from a Venice, Calif., jewelry store. Lohan's probation-violation case, should no other arrangement be reached, is scheduled to go to trial Feb. 27.
