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.

Gavin ain't on that plane.......LOL ! that's TMZ adding butter to this piece of toast.....Hes been in LA by his tweets anyway several hours or at least a day....
Gavin is facing probation violation himself if he lies....So he will lose big time and I don't see him doing ti unless she has something really bad on him.......then all bets are off...as blackmail is the Lohan speciality.......

Mr. Pink is now Lindsay's pimp for the next few months. He'd better have that plane fumigated.

I am really start to lean on Gavin commiting perjury and say he was driving. She must have some hold on him. They better fry his ass if he does lie. They were scene together in a Soho bar eating, what a week or so ago. She's been buttering his ass.

I think this is a giant stunt. I am willing to bet that the private jet was ALWAYS arranged, and that the airport PANIC! was just another TMZ-Lohan stunt.

Try make the Kardashians look like amateurs.

Once it is found out by the court that the Prosecution witness and the defendant traveled on the same private plane together to get to LA, the court and the Prosecution can add one more charge of Witness Tampering on to the list, and that is a felony charge.

Maybe she should start tweeting whether someone can lend her their private helicopter too or maybe the LA police can give her a personal escort to the courthose since she is such an important person. Nothing will happen to her, she will not be held accountable because LA will not punish the rich and famous instead she will be given the keys to the city because the judge, jury and prosecutor are so starstruck and think she is so special.
