Lindsay Lohan

Bodyguard Shopping

After Trespassing Incident

1/3/2012 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan
Yesterday's door-knocking incident was a huge wake up call for Lindsay Lohan -- who's now in the market to ramp up security at her L.A. home ... with surveillance cameras ... and even a new bodyguard.

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ, the actress loves her Venice Beach house ... but with random scary people walking right up to her front door, she's convinced it's time to invest in some extra security upgrades for the property.

On top of adding additional security cameras -- we're told Lindsay wants to hire a full-time bodyguard to stay with her for a period of time ... until she feels safe again.

As for the man arrested for trespassing outside her house on Sunday -- Lonnie Short -- we're told he shares a bizarre connection with Lindsay's alleged stalker David Cocordan.

According to sources, when Short knocked on Lindsay's door yesterday, he announced he was friends with David and needed to explain some things.

Clearly, Lindsay wasn't up for a chat -- and minutes later, cops arrested Short for trespassing. He's still in custody on $1,000 bail.

here red cloud..another role that she was thrown out of
-------------
After signing on to executive produce three series for Lifetime Television, the newly single star is set to appear in a cameo roll as feminist activist Gloria Steinem in the upcoming biopic "Lovelace," which centers on the life of the world's first erotic superstar, Variety reports.

Aston Kutcher's ex will costar alongside a celeb-studded ensemble cast including Amanda Seyfried as Linda Lovelace (a role once belonging to Lindsay Lohan), Adam Brody, Eric Roberts, Peter Sarsgaard, Sharon Stone, Juno Temple, Wes Bentley, Hank Azaria, Chris Noth, and James Franco, who just signed on to do a cameo as Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.

How about this insane.!
GC to answer you last comment:

When the cops arrive he's still there...they tell him she don't to talk so just move along....they don't want to arrest someone for just knocking on a door...
She screams bloody murder, says she wants him arrested for trepassing...they say they can't do it unless without proof unless she swears out a citizens arrest for trepassing against her...she want's him gone so she does just that..now they have to take him in.........
Which will be interesting ....since she better have some really solid prove that he was trepassing and he has nothing to hide like maybe being a little dirty himself, or someone doesn't pay him off. then she has a hell of a law suit against her for false arrest which if he choose to charge her would violate her parole...

Wasn't she already sued by a security company for failure to pay? I can't imagine anyone else wanting to work for her. Plus, the full time bodyguard would make more money than Lindsay makes, so how is she going to swing that?

stalkers in LA are now "occupying" stars homes...they are not getting paid prevailing wages like promised..
excons and vagrants have taken to the streets wanting the same pay if you stalk Kim K. or lindsay lohan..
the stars have cut their workers comp. 401ks...and and stalker retirement plan

Come on, the homeless trespasser probably was trying to get some of the drug money that she still owes David so he could by himself a cup of coffee. Lindsay is always the victim...

Better do yet another follow-up story on this. It is a rich and topical news story. I am surprised the Washington Post hasn't picked this one up. Wow they really dropped the ball. I will be monitoring for updates and report to family and friends so that they are informed.

I find it interesting that of all the sites I have gone to (and they are "big" name sites) only TMZ has this story. I am not saying it is true but it sounds fishy that no one else has put out the story. Lindsay needs to think before she does something. What is the old saying - "Measure twice, cut once". In other words just don't do something on impulse - think twice. Moving where she did because someone else lived there is not necessarily a good thing. As much as she is in the news, security should be one of her priorities. And don't give the excuse (as I saw on one of the posts) that she is too nice as there are many celebrities that are "too nice" and this doesn't happen to them or if it does they don't put it out there for everyone to know. Lindsay needs to get better advice than she is currently given and has gotten in the past.

I like the pictures of Lindsay at the New Years party with Diane Keaton and Woody Allen. Lindsay hair looks much better, not so white more blonde, although I do prefer her as a brunette. Lindsay Julia Roberts lived in Venice for years. I think your safe, your neighbors are close by and can see and hear what's going on, the police are close and people in general in Venice watch their neighbors backs.

Kind of off subject here, but I find it odd that the jail makes room for an individual that is charged but not yet convicted of a misdemeanor who is unable to cough up $1000 for bail, but the same jail system cuts out convicted criminals within minutes of beginning to serve a sentence imposed by a judge.

Andy, I started playing basketball and hanging in Venice in the fall of 1985, I have three apartments there including one a block from Lindsay, Julia didn't beat me to Venice. I don't live there now because the rents are two high. I've been in LA 26 years without any arrests, I doubt that you can say the same for your record and drug abuse history.
