The 'Liz & Dick' star is still on probation after being found guilty of stealing a necklace in July 2011, for which she was sentenced to 120 days in prison and 480 hours of community service.

Other offences include Lindsay being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) in May 2007, resulting in her heading for rehab for 45 days, followed by her blood alcohol level being over the limit and cocaine found in her coat after she refused to take a sobriety test in June of that year.

Linday's first publicist Steve Honig quit working for the troubled star in October after a damaging few months for the actress, which also saw her accuse mother Dina Lohan of taking cocaine and foil an intervention attempt by her father Michael Lohan.

Steve claimed that every time Lindsay has been to rehab "she went in dirty and didn't come out clean".
