Lindsay Lohan: I Was So Damn Busy ...

2/14/2011 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan has an uncomplicated excuse for not returning the necklace that triggered a felony grand theft charge -- she was very, very busy.

According to the police report obtained by TMZ, Lindsay's assistant gave cops this story: "Ms. Lohan was in possession of the necklace and wanted to give the necklace back to the store the day after she took it from the store, but she was very busy."

As TMZ already reported, Lindsay was tipped off that a search warrant had been issued and then had her assistant make a beeline for the police station before the warrant could be executed.

Lindsay's assistant told cops ... before going to the police station she tried returning the necklace to the jewelry store, but no one there picked up the phone.

Interesting note from cops:  "There was no description of the stolen necklace give to Ms. Lohan, yet she gave the exact necklace in question to her assistant to return."

Yes, hopefully it was just a common flub up that we all have. What worries me is that there was a strange torsion of the lips and a look of confusion that came across her face.

More evidence Lindsay stoled the necklace.

@ disturbed

guess you didn't read TMZ's info from the police report from the jeweler properly, the owner first said lilo visited the store 3 times to look at the necklace, in her next convo with the cops the owner changed her mind, she made a 'mistake' lilo visited 3 times to look at a ring. The owner is defo fishy.

why would the asistant or lilo need a description of the necklace? she'd only been to one jewelry store and borrowed one necklace.

someone said yerterday TMZ are milking this and they are, yesterday for lilo, today against lilo, what will it be later or tomorrow? its all for site hits people.

I don't understand why their isn't more concern about who in the LAPD is leaking information to alleged criminals about search warrants being executed. Gives them the chance to get rid of the evidence..... or change their story..... or return the stolen good. It's no wonder that so few celebrities ever pay for their crimes when the police are kind enough to keep them posted on the prosecutions intentions. Really shoddy police work!!!!!

the necklace was on loan folks, remember lilo never denied having the necklace, the store owner let lilo walk out wearing the necklace. Remember what the store owner said in her police report? she quoted lilo as sayin "ok, I'll call back tomorrow" this ain't theft, the store owner is a doofus.

@45 just to refresh your memory 'doofus'.

The report outlines Lindsay's every move -- from the time she walked into the store to the time she left -- and it's all on surveillance video.

According to the report, Lindsay walked in and removed her necklaces and placed them on the counter. The report says, "Ms. Lohan then proceeds to try on numerous rings and three different necklaces including the missing yellow diamond necklace."

The police report then says Lindsay continued shopping while wearing the yellow necklace.

Then, at 6:12 PM, the owner locked the store but let Lindsay and her friend Patrick continue to shop. That's when Lindsay tried negotiating a ring she had been eyeing, but she didn't like the $3,60...0 price tag. Lindsay took $3,000 cash out of her purse and offered it in exchange for the ring, but the owner said no. Lindsay then said, "Ok, we'll come back tomorrow."

When Lindsay prepared to leave the store, she put her own necklaces back on her neck, along with the yellow necklace in question ... then walked out of the store.

The owner noticed a short time after Lindsay left that the yellow necklace was missing, but figured she took it by mistake and would bring it back the next day. Lindsay never returned to the store.

Ms. Lohan has absolutely no idea what being "very, very busy" is. Try the real life on for size with a job and a family, Lindsay. You'll find out that the Hollywood lifestyle isn't exactly what the rest of us would call "busy". Mr. and Mrs. Lohan, you should be deeply ashamed of yourselves as parents, and it wouldn't surprise me that you are both clueless as to why.

If the assistant testifies to this at trial, Lindsay is sunk. No wonder she wants to plead out.


Still no announcement from CBS about Serene Branson. Has it been confirmed that she had a stroke?
