It's a good thing Lindsay Lohan looks at TMZ ... because we're told our story that she may be arrested has scared the crap out of her, and she's making plans to fly to L.A. tonight.
We broke the story ... Lindsay's new lawyer, Mark Heller, notified the court Tuesday that Lindsay would not appear as ordered on Wednesday because she had an upper respiratory infection. Problem is, the very day she got a doctor's note saying she was unfit to fly, she was shopping up a storm in SoHo, and we got the pictures to prove it.
So we're told Lindsay and Dina have booked a flight to L.A. that's supposed to take off in an hour.
And get this ... we're also told Lindsay has been "begging " Shawn Holley to take her back as a client. As we reported, Lindsay sent Shawn a letter firing her and even signed legal docs having Shawn removed as counsel.
We're told Lindsay and her peeps are now pleading with Shawn to come back. Lindsay is crying that she can't stand Heller and wants it the way it was ... problem is, Lindsay already made her bed and as we already reported, Holley is over Lindsay for good.
TMZ could not reach Holley for comment.
Will Lindsay make it to court? Will the judge grill LiLo like a cheeseburger over her "upper respiratory infection?" Will Heller get shut down by the judge?
We'll be livestreaming at 8:30 AM PT Wednesday, so stay tuned.
