Lindsay Lohan reports for community service

Actress Lindsay Lohan has resumed her community service relating to a 2012 reckless driving case by reporting for duty at a New York children's daycare centre on Wednesday (13May15).

The Mean Girls star turned up for work at the Duffield Children's Center in Brooklyn, where she performed some voluntary tasks last year (14), but she was reportedly two hours late, showing up 90 minutes after the kids had arrived, according to TMZ.com.


Lohan, who managed to avoid the media scrum awaiting her arrival by sneaking in through a back entrance, is facing a race against time to complete the remaining 125 hours of her sentence before a court-imposed deadline of 28 May (15).


She claimed to have finished her community service in February (15) after clocking up the time in London while she was performing on the West End stage, but a Los Angeles judge rejected more than half of the work she had allegedly completed after it emerged she had logged time spent conducting meet-and-greet sessions with fans.


The actress risked the wrath of the judge again last week (07May15), when her longtime lawyer, Shawn Holley, revealed her client had only completed nine hours and 45 minutes since her last progress hearing, and she was subsequently warned Lohan would face "consequences" if she failed to complete her total of 240 hours by the end of the month (May15).
