Lindsay Lohan shows up really late for morgue duty

Oct 20, 2011 at 2:35 p.m. ET

Lindsay Lohan showed up almost an hour late for her community service at the morgue and was turned away. Is this the final nail in LiLo's court coffin?

You'd think Lindsay Lohan would be on her best behavior the morning after she was booked in a Los Angeles jail for violating her probation. You might think that -- but you'd be wrong.

Lindsay Lohan was late for community service

Lohan, 25, was turned away from the Los Angeles County morgue for showing up late to her community service, TMZ reported.

"We're told the Coroner's office then contacted the Probation Dept.'s Volunteer Center -- which supervises Lindsay's probation -- and notified them that she was late ... AGAIN. That info will be forwarded on to Judge Stephanie Sautner," the website wrote.

She eventually showed up -- 40 minutes after her scheduled start time -- and was turned away at the door. Lohan's publicist explained away the tardiness, saying it was "due to a combination of not knowing the entrance to go through and confusion caused by the media waiting for her arrival."

Showing up late isn't a direct violation of court orders, but it doesn't look good. She's required to put in at least 16 hours of service at the morgue before Nov. 2, according to Judge Sautner.

Lohan also took to Twitter to explain what happened, though she did (sort of) accept blame for being late.

"With all of the stress and pressure from yesterday and today, I've never been so happy to go to therapy. Also, I'm sorry for the confusion that I may of [sic] caused to those at the Coroner's office. Won't happen again, now I know where to go!" she tweeted.

Let's hope she can surprise the judge and get the hours in -- otherwise, it's highly probable that she's headed to the slammer for a long, long while.
