BREAKING: Lindsay Lohan late for work at morgue

Lohan in New York City earlier this summer.

More developments in the most important news story of our time: Lindsay Lohan showed up late today for her court-ordered community service in Los Angeles’ county morgue this morning.

The actress was supposed to arrive at the morgue at 8 a.m. this morning for a training session, but reportedly did not arrive until 8:40.

More details from the Associated Press, which has reporters on the ground:

Steve Honig, Lohan’s spokesman, said in a statement that the actress was late because she didn’t know which entrance to report to and “and confusion caused by the media waiting for her arrival.”

The “Mean Girls” star’s tardy arrival at the morgue 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 Lohan’s probation being revoked and her being led from court in handcuffs.

… Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner ordered Lohan to complete 16 hours of work at the morgue before a Nov. 2 hearing. The judge will determine whether Lohan violated the terms of her probation by being terminated from the Downtown Women’s Center after being late several times and not showing up for her service.

Let’s just say this whole mess is reason #806712426 we are glad we are not Lindsay Lohan. An entire AP report because she was 40 minutes late to work? Cripes, we’ve been later than that three times this week — and that was just because we wanted to stop and play with our cats after breakfast. Who knows how late we’d be if we had the paparazzi to deal with?
