Lindsay Lohan Is A Lousy Comm Serv Worker, Gets Kicked Out of Program

It turns out actress Lindsay Lohan's lackadaisical 'tude towards her addiction and recovery is translating to her time put in doing court-ordered community service, and now her lame efforts have gotten her booted out of one program where Lohan was meant to complete over 300 hours of work.

Lohan was ordered to put in 480 hours of community service, split between two different programs. Judge Stephanie Sautner ordered the starlet to serve 360 hours at the Women's Center on Skid Row, and 120 hours at the Mission Road coroner's office as part of her sentence for parole violation and accidentally swiping a necklace from a Venice jewelry store. Now the Women's Center has handed Lohan her walking papers.

TMZ reports Lohan "blew off 9 scheduled visits ... and when she did show up, she would often bail after working there for only an hour," which led to her termination about two weeks ago.

Lohan was reassigned to the Red Cross' comm serv program. But will Judged Sautner take this development kindly? Sautner's order stipulated Lohan "be reliable, non-disruptive, and serve at least 4 hours at a time." Oops. Also, Lohan was told if she didn't comply, she would go to jail.

The actress, who is due back in court in a couple of weeks for a "check-up" on her progress, was already scolded for not chipping away enough at her ordered comm serv time. Will Sautner send Lohan back to the pokey? Or will Lohan's smiling face greet you when you pay a visit to the Red Cross?
