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.
L.A. Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner—who presided over Lohan's necklace-theft case—had previously received word that the Liz & Dick star was too sick to travel.
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.
