Prosecutors said Tuesday they plan to charge Lindsay Lohan with felony grand theft of a $2,500 necklace reported stolen from a jewelry store last month — the most serious count the actress has faced in more than three years of trouble with the law.
Los Angeles police said Feb. 2 that Lohan was under investigation for taking a necklace from a Venice store later identified as Kamofie and Co. Detectives obtained a search warrant to try to retrieve the item from Lohan’s home, but it was turned in to a police station before any search was made. Police said they had no update on the case Tuesday and did not say whether the actress had made arrangements to turn herself in at court or at a police station. Robison said bail would be decided by a judge.
A phone message to Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, was not immediately returned. Holley has previously denied any wrongdoing by Lohan.
“We vehemently deny these allegations and, if charges are filed, we will fight them in court, not in the press,” Holley said in a statement released Saturday.
The new case represents the most serious charges the “Mean Girls” star has ever faced. Arrested twice in 2007, Lohan was charged with drunken driving and drug possession, but both were misdemeanors. Lohan remains on probation for drunken driving. A judge had threatened to throw her in jail if she ran into trouble again. Prosecutors in Riverside County have been considering whether to press charges against Lohan for a December altercation with a worker from the Betty Ford Center, where she was being treated.
The latest film creation of Robert Rodriguez. You have probably seen some of Robert’s other films such as Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn, Sin City (Guest Director), but most recent and relevant is his Grindhouse film (Planet Terror). Machete was initially a fake trailer included in Grindhouse 3 years ago but has now fruition-ed into its own feature film.
If you have seen any of Robert Rodriguez film’s you have undoubtibly noticed his cheesy ’70s flare, that have turned his films into instant cult classics. Machete does not fall short and if you like his style you will love this film.
It is packed with action and big name stars such as Machete (Danny Trejo), an evil crime boss (a bloated Steven Seagal), oily businessman (Jeff Fahey), a racist politician (Robert De Niro), a sexy federal agent (Jessica Alba), a fiery female revolutionary (Michelle Rodriguez), the businessman’s daughter, a drugged-up mess (Lindsay Lohan), who may or may not have read the script before her brief topless scene. However, for those eager to see LiLo in a nun’s outfit blowing bad guys away, this is your movie.
After a violent shakedown from a notorious drug lord nearly kills him, Machete, a renegade Mexican Federale and tough–as–nails vigilante for justice, roams the streets of Texas, working as a day laborer. When Machete is hired by a crooked US Senator to execute a covert hit, Machete is double–crossed and forced to run from the cops and an endless stream of assassins. But what they don’t know is that Machete is looking for them so he can settle the score.
