Lindsay Lohan late to court

Lindsay Lohan was not on time for her court hearing in Los Angeles this morning.

The legal proceedings were due to start at 8.30am PDT and there has been speculation all day about whether the star would be punctual.

Her lawyer Mark Heller arrived at the court at 8.24am today and refused to answer questions about his client's case as he walked past the waiting press.

He then drove away from the courthouse in his Hummer at around 8:35am.

The 26-year-old star was still not in court at the time of writing.

There were concerns Lindsay would make a delayed entrance to the Los Angeles courtroom after the star reportedly deplaned an evening flight from New York at the last minute over the weekend.

She had initially made arrangements to make the cross-country trip with her mother Dina on Saturday before allegedly getting spooked and jumped off the scheduled flight. She apparently then enlisted a private plane to get her to Los Angeles on time.

TMZ has reported that the jet Lindsay was on diverted to LAX "which will put her much closer to the courthouse, and give her a fighting chance to actually make it on time." She is thought to have touched down at the airport at 8.35am.

Lindsay faces charges of reckless driving, providing false information to an officer and wilfully resisting, obstructing or delaying an officer after her rented sports car crashed into a truck in Los Angeles last June.

The troubled actress faces the possibility of going to jail if she is found guilty of any of the three charges and today's hearing will determine whether she will face a jury.
