Lindsay Lohan

Cutting It Real Close

3/18/2013 5:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1229-lindsay-lohan-tmzLindsay Lohan's court hearing is less than three hours away and she still has not arrived in Los Angeles ... TMZ has learned.

As TMZ first reported, LiLo hopped off her scheduled flight from New York to Los Angeles just before take off last night because she felt the plane was unsafe.

Lindsay eventually found a flight, tweeting at around 4:00 AM PT and thanking Mr. Pink -- an energy drink company -- for lending her a private jet.

According to our sources, the flight won't land in Los Angeles until around 6:30-7:00 AM PT ... meaning Lindsay has roughly 1.5 hours to make it to court, which starts at 8:30 AM PT. It might be enough time, but you have to factor in that Lindsay needs to make herself "camera ready."

And then there's this ... we know Lindsay's plane is set to land at the airport in Van Nuys. That means she has to travel around 20 miles to get to the hearing today at the Airport Courthouse. And it's gonna be rush hour!

According to our sources, Lindsay is not alone on the flight. She's traveling with her ex-assistant Gavin. He was the one who rolled on Lindsay and told the cops she was driving the car (despite her claims otherwise). The incident played a major role in their decision to charge her with lying to police.

Lindsay could have avoided all of this if she stayed on her original flight to LA. Even though it took off an hour late and was diverted to Las Vegas ... it still arrived in Los Angeles last night at 11:30 PM.

But if Lindsay made smart decisions, we wouldn't be in this mess in the first place.

Well obviously, one of Lindsay's john's paid off Gavin. Is he going to change his story? Why the hell would she be with someone that could send her to jail. This crackie has something up her sleeve (besides her drugs).

Sorry I don't buy Gavin on the plane with Lohan. This guy is going to purger himself, have a record and possible jail for purgery. Don't think so.

Wow, doesn't sound good Lindsay, Van Nuys Airport is about ninety minute drive to the courthouse with morning traffic. I might go today to take pictures, good luck LiLO maybe the carpool lane will save you.

There's something VERY fishy about the fact that Gavin was on that plane too. Were they trying to make sure they have all their lies straight?
-
It won't work anyway. The prosecution has witnesses (multiple) that will testify Lohan was the one behind the wheel.
-
I almost HOPE Firecrotch & Gavin try to pull somethihng. Then they'll both be facing perjury charges as well!
