Lindsay Lohan

Gets Off Airplane

Right Before Takeoff!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0315-lindsay-lohan-tmzLindsay Lohan is now in SERIOUS jeopardy of missing her court date tomorrow -- TMZ has learned she got off her flight to Los Angeles at the last minute and is now scrambling to find another way to the west coast.

Lindsay arrived at JFK a few hours ago after deciding NOT to fly back on Saturday as previously planned.

We're told Lindsay was on board the plane when for some reason ... she decided to get off. According to our sources, Lindsay was in such a hurry to get off the plane, she left her bags behind.

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ she believed there was a problem with the plane ... specifically that fuel was leaking. Lindsay is telling friends that 35 other people got off the plane as well because they too felt it was unsafe.

For whatever it's worth ... according to the website for the airport, the flight was delayed an hour taking off and has since been diverted to Las Vegas. [UPDATE: The airline tells TMZ the plane is in fact stopping in Vegas for more fuel before continuing to Los Angeles.]

Our sources say LiLo is now in an airport lounge ... calling, texting and emailing everyone she knows ... trying to get a private plane to take her to L.A.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ she MUST appear at the hearing tomorrow or the judge will issue a bench warrant.

Might wanna start typing that up ...

This doesn't add up. Why would a plane be diverted to Las Vegas. Vegas is a 30 minute flight from LA. If there were a problem they would be diverted to somewhere much closer! Based on the approximate time TMZ said she left the flight wouldn't be anywhere near Vegas yet.

Given the time difference, I think she can still make it in time ... BUT ... she left her bags on the plane that is landing in Vegas? LMAO! She may end up wearing her flying/pj outfit to court after all.

Checking http://flightaware.com/live/findflight/ZNY/klax/
it looks like all flights departing New York for LA departing between 4:00 pm and 9:35 pm EST are all On Time. What was Lyndsay flying? Her broom?

This is getting to be ridiculous. I hope she can't to L.A. tomorrow and the judge throws the book at her. Robert Downey, Jr. was a drug addict and messed around like she's doing and he did hard time. This bitch needs to go to jail and die!!!

Who really cares what happens. A bench warrant? Big deal a $500 bond, out in an hour. Or after trial even if they give her 30 years. What does that mean. 5 days in jail. Lets just move on from this already. Jail and courts in LA don't mean anything if you're a celebrity.

I truly believe that LL is learning disabled in some way. She is simply unable to make a good decision. An intelligent human being would not wait till the last minute when they have something this important to attend to first thing in the morning. What if the flt had been canceled? She is a hopeless fool and you can't fix stupid. A long jail sentence (if not much worse) is in her future. Maybe not this time, maybe not the next, but rest assured...it is coming. The writing is on the wall.
