Well according to Lindsay Lohan's rep, it looks like the morgue is accepting Lindsay's tardiness after all!
Earlier, we told you LiLo was reported as a no-show when she failed to arrive at the morgue at 8am sharp to fulfill her court ordered obligations.
Yesterday, Judge Stephanie Sautner handed Lindsay's ass to her on a silver platter, most definitely in an attempt to shake the severity of the situation into her.
Judge Stephanie firmly explained that if Lindsay failed to make any more of her required community service appointments, there would be definite punishment to pay.
And while it seemed like the wheels were in motion to see that punishment be put in place, a statement from LiLo's rep makes it seem like she's in the clear….for now:
Lindsay arrived at the morgue approximately 20 minutes late and will be returning for orientation tomorrow. Her lateness was due to a combination of not knowing what entrance to go through and confusion caused by the media waiting for her arrival. Lindsay spoke with the supervisors at the morgue, they showed her how to get in and everything is all cleared up.
Okay, so let's say all of that is true, those are just reasons. Not excuses.
For example, if we have an important meeting to attend, we leave well in advance to ensure a prompt arrival, obstacles en route or not.
This wasn't her first go at community service. One would think her team would know by now how the media can affect the timing of events. Also, one would definitely think her team would make sure they knew exactly where to enter beforehand.
We wonder what Judge Stephanie thinks about all of this!
