Lohan late for community service

Lindsay Lohan arrived late for her first day of community service at a morgue and was turned away, officials have said.

LA coroners' spokesman Craig Harvey said the actress was 40 minutes late to an orientation session at the County Morgue scheduled for 8am local time, but would be given another chance to show up on time on Friday.

Steve Honig, Lindsay's spokesman, said in a statement that the actress was late because she did not know which entrance to report to "and confusion caused by the media waiting for her arrival".

Lindsay apologised on Twitter, saying: "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!"

"With all the stress and pressure from yesterday and today, I've never been so happy to go to therapy!!!!" she also tweeted.

The Mean Girls star's tardy arrival at the mortuary came a day after she was scolded by a judge for being terminated from a community service assignment at a women's shelter.

The hearing ended with Lindsay's probation being revoked and her being led from court in handcuffs. She later posted bail and was released.

She remains on probation for a pair of drunken driving arrests in 2007 and a theft case filed earlier this year after she was accused of taking a valuable necklace without permission. She pleaded no contest in that theft case.

Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner ordered Lohan to complete 16 hours of work at the mortuary before a November 2 hearing.

Lindsay will be doing mostly janitorial work at the morgue, Mr Harvey said. Her duties will include cleaning and stocking toilets, mopping floors and washing sheets. The actress will have to surrender her mobile phone while working at the morgue and bring her own lunch.
