Lindsay Lohan

PANICS

Flies First Class to L.A.

EXCLUSIVE

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.

It's time the dingbat gets what she has gotten out of for years.

What is her redeeming value?

Okay, I've got this figured out. Every citizen is entitled to be represented by an attorney. It's part of Miranda.
If you cannot afford one, an attorney will be appointed to you.

Now, claiming broke and in debt while flying first class and shopping in trendy stores may raise the eyebrows of the court, understandably. But, if Harvey goes to the courthouse, he could stand up and say, I'm A Lawyer ! He could volunteer to help the poor girl. If that fails, she can do what countless accused poor people do. Use a public defender.

Methinks TMZ made up the whole story about Lindsay being "sick" to score some cheap hits.

If only this knucklehead had one person in her life who could give her solid advice that she'd actually listen to. But, unfortunately, she dumped Holley and now she's on her own. If the L.A. judge on her case has any common sense, he or she will send this basket case to jail. That's her only hope!

You should be so proud that you sneak around like snakes, try to catch people doing what may be innocent (I have had a lung infection and was told not to fly and walked around) knowing that by putting it out there she will get in trouble. Harvey, weren't you ever taught not to tattle when you were little? Oh, that is right making peoples life miserable has paid off for you.

Lindsay most likely flew using her frequent flier points. I noticed she appeared to be also using the Admiral's club which would separate her from most of the general population.

I blame Judge Judy and all those TV judges for glamorizing filth. So silly girls desire fame and what they learn from TV is to do bad things for fame.
