Lindsay's Armed Shopping Escort

Lindsay Lohan spent some time on trendy Robertson Blvd. in Los Angeles Tuesday afternoon shopping at the clothing boutique Vionnet -- all while the paparazzi caught her every move on tape.

During her shopping trip, her new BFF, a Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy, entered the shop and had a word with the girls before heading outside to sit on his motorcycle and fend off the photographers.

The deputy warned photogs to "move out of the way and let them walk" before finally threatening them by saying, "Get out of the street. I'm gonna start writing some tickets and you're not gonna like me."

Before driving off, Lindsay showed her approval for the police officer's help by yelling, "I love you, Tony."
