Lindsay Lohan began her 90-day jail sentence this morning after handing herself over to authorities at Beverly Hills Superior Court.

After turning up late at the courthouse, Lohan was accompanied in by her on-off-on again lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley.

Lohan’s father Michael and mother Dina were also present for the hearing.

Michael Lohan added to the drama in court by screaming out, “I love you Lindsay” as the actress was cuffed and led away. The Mean Girls star looked scared and serious as she was taken into custody at 8.48am local time.

The 24 year old will serve her term at the Lynwood Correctional Facility, the same detention centre which housed Paris Hilton in 2007 when she was found guilty on a similar charge.

However, there’s some good news for the troubled actress – she is only expected to serve a quarter of the sentence, amounting to 23 days behind bars.

After Lohan is released, she must spend another 90 days in residential rehab. During Tuesday’s hearing, the judge ordered her to check into a treatment programme “within 24 hours of (her) release from custody”.
