In news that was a long time coming, Lindsay Lohan is headed to rehab, after accepting a plea deal in court on Monday. “She is to do 90 days at a locked rehab facility,” the Los Angeles judge explained. “She is not allowed to leave the facility at all.” In addition to rehab, the judge sentenced the 26-year-old actress to 30 days of community service and 18 months of psychological therapy. He also had some personal advice to offer. “Don’t drive,” he told her, though this was not a part of the plea deal. “You’re in New York. You don’t need to drive.” Lohan had arrived a fashionable 45 minutes late to the hearing, and was "glitter bombed" on her way in to the court house (no arrests have been made). The star also missed her original flight from New York to Los Angeles, and resorted to taking a private plane, provided by energy drink company Mr. Pink. "Thanks Mr. Pink for the private jet see you all in a few hours in LA," she tweeted early on Monday. Even with her late arrival, the odds where in her favor, as she was facing 245 days in jail for reckless driving and lying to law enforcement before she took the plea deal. The judge stressed the severity of Lohan's situation. “You really need to understand….This is it," he said, "Please take this seriously.”
