At last, the world is a safer place. Lindsay Lohan arrived to a Beverly Hills courthouse this morning to surrender for her 90-day jail sentence on probation violation stemming from drunk driving and drug possession charges in 2007.
Showing up 10 minutes late, the actress rose in the courtroom and was handcuffed behind her back after the brief hearing. The cuffing was not photographed nor televised per a previous arrangement with the court.
Present at the hearing was mom Dina and little sister Ali -- who both wiped away tears after Lindsay was taken away. Her estranged father Michael was also there.
The young starlet was represented by former attorney Shawn Chapman Holley, who stepped in for Robert Shapiro after he quit the case Monday night.
Lindsay will be serving her time at the all-female Century Regional Detention Facility in glamorous Lynwood, Calif., the same place Paris Hilton served 23 days for violating her DUI probation in 2007.
It is possible that the troubled star could be released early due to overcrowding, but she will likely serve at least 23 days. After her release, she must immediately begin three months of court-ordered rehab.
