Lohan under house arrest

Lindsay Lohan will be spending the next month or so under house arrest at her swanky Venice Beach home — and while it’s far from prison, her sentence isn’t without rules, according to People magazine. While she can have unlimited visitors and phone and Internet access, Lohan can only leave the premises for medical appointments or visits to the probation department, as long as advance notice is given. The troubled actress even has to put her court-ordered community service on hold until after her house arrest sentence is completed.
