Lindsay Lohan

PANICS

Flies First Class to L.A.

EXCLUSIVE

0129_lindsay_lohan_court_lax_jfk_article_Tmz
Lindsay Lohan and her mom Dina took the last flight out of JFK last night and jetted to L.A. after being warned she'd be a wanted woman if she was a no-show in court this morning.

Lindsay -- who is not just broke but deeply in debt -- waited in her car at the airport (above) until the last minute ... then flew first class on American Airlines and landed at around 12:30 AM.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay had no intention of showing up in her lying-to-cops case and got a doctor's note which was filed with the court, saying she couldn't fly because she had an upper respiratory infection. But then we posted pictures of Lindsay shopping and smoking in SoHo the very day she got the doctor's note.

We're told Lindsay went into a panic after we posted our story Tuesday and started calling everyone to find out if we were right ... that the judge would probably issue a warrant for her arrest if she didn't show. Our Lindsay sources say she was pleading with Shawn Holley -- the lawyer she fired -- to come back on the case, saying she didn't like her replacement -- New York lawyer Mark Heller.

Holley made it clear days ago ... she's off the case, so it's now up to Heller, who clearly started off on the wrong foot by submitting the doctor's note, along with a New York Post article saying a lot of people in NYC had the flu.

Heller has another problem -- the lawyer he got to sponsor him to appear in a California court has never met him, and it's possible the judge could deny him the right to represent Lindsay. 

So Lindsay could be lawyerless ... and you know what they say about a client who reps herself ...

We'll be livestreaming the action in court beginning at 8:30 AM.

i'm sure she fired shawn holley to buy some more free time, and this latest stunt with a dr's note...she might even get a later court date because of a new lawyer but she will eventually have to answer to all her wrong doings. if she would have acted like an adult from the beginning, these problems would have been behind her

Damn you TMZ!! She was so close to screwing herself. The judge isn't going to release Shawn. This happened before. When does Karma catch this girl?

Why is this girl even relevant anymore ?? Maybe if we stop reporting on her, show her no attention, she'll stop making headlines. Who cares ! She's a celebrity.. she'll skirt the law, they all do.

And Dina is needed there for what reason? I don't know any 26 year old that spends that much time with their mother-talk about creepy.

By the way.. worse move she could make was getting on a plane after her pseudo attorney submitted a doctor's note saying the girl had an upper respiratory. If she shows up now, and is NOT sick, the doctor can get in trouble as well. Way to bring everyone down in a big blazing ball of shame...

Just looking at how high Crackie is in pictures, kinda makes you wonder if she will make it to court. She might just pass out and sleep through the whole thing.

BREAKING NEWS


Lohan retains TMZ's Harvey as her lawyer. What a joke that would be.


She's going to court for lying to the cops


and now


she gets caught up in another lie about being too sick to travel.


I don't know but that really doesn't seem like a good thing to do when facing a judge who SHOULD be pissed at you.
