These are, as usual, trying times for Lindsay Lohan. Today the actress managed to be nearly an hour late for the start of her current trial here in Los Angeles, and she was greeted by the usual throng of photographers and media, as well as a sparkly glitter bomb.

It was a trial just to get Lohan to the courthouse this morning, thanks to some issues jetting from New York to L.A. Mechanical issues forced her off her original commercial flight, then LiLo--unlike the rest of us plebes--was gifted with a donated chartered flight to wing her westward. But that flight was delayed, and had to be re-routed from its original landing in Van Nuys to Los Angeles International Airport in order to get Lohan closer to the Airport Branch Courthouse.

What brings Lohan to court (this time) is the start of her trial on charges charges stemming from a car accident in June when the actress was already on probation in a separate case. Her New York-based attorney, Mark Heller, tried unsuccessfully to get the case dismissed on his last trip to the courthouse in L.A.

Heller also flubbed--and failed--at getting the prosecutors in two different offices to agree to team up with him to come up with an alternate plan to "fix" Lohan. Prosecutors seem pretty intent on fighting it out in front of the judge.

At stake is Lohan's freedom, since the judge will also examine allegations she violated her probation. If convicted Lohan could serve the remainder of her 245 day suspended sentence for her jewelry theft conviction.

Since arriving at the courthouse this morning, prosecutors and Lindsay Lohan's lawyer have been in chambers with the judge, according to City News Service.
