Approximately four hours after checking herself into the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California PEOPLE magazine is reporting that the 25-year-old actress has been released.
The reason? You guessed it. Overcrowding.The troubled star was actually sentenced to 30 days in the slammer for violating probation in her DUI and necklace-theft cases but served only an itty-bitty fraction of it to ease the overpopulated jail.
Which isn’t unusual for nonviolent offenders a sheriff’s spokesman told the mag. But, don’t worry, she’s not completely off the hook.
However, one misstep and she could be slapped with an additional 270-day jail sentence or if we did our math right Lindsay could spend another 36 hours behind bars.
Wouldn’t that be just her luck?
