Looks like Lindsay Lohan is serving time for violating probation. So you know we had to get the details from her directly. Colby Colb calls Lindsay to find out how she is dealing with her issues and how she will cope with big time in a Los Angeles Jail cell! Listen here…

Judge Marsha Revel sentenced Lindsay Lohan after an incredulous prosecutor, Danette Meyers, told the judge that Lohan has been thumbing her nose at the court.

The evidence was loud and clear today — Lindsay violated probation by failing to attend her alcohol ed classes based on the schedule set by the judge.  There were lots of excuses, but ultimately they didn’t fly.

The judge said there was a pattern of violations since Lindsay was placed on probation in 2007 following her plea bargain in her DUI case.

Lindsay broke down as she addressed the court, telling the judge, “I did the best I could.”

Lohan must surrender on July 20 in Judge Revel’s court.

UPDATE: Sheriff’s spokesperson Steve Whitmore just explained … generally, a female inmate in  Lindsay’s situation only serves 25% of their sentence … which means LiLo will most likely spend around 23 days behind bars.

A “scared” but resolute Lindsay Lohan began a 90-day jail sentence on Tuesday, trading nightclubs and Twitter messages for a small, isolated cell and an orange jumpsuit.

Lohan, 24, was booked into an all-female jail in south Los Angeles for violating her probation on two 2007 drunk-driving and cocaine possession charges.
