Actress Lindsay Lohan is due in court in Los Angeles Wednesday, but she is allegedly not feeling well, and has sent a "sick note" in through her lawyer explaining her absence. Alas, her tale of woe is a little on the sketchy side, and could fast track the starlet into jail.TMZ reports that Lohan's new lawyer, Mark Heller, "submitted documents notifying the judge she's too ill to fly. Heller submitted a note from a Park Avenue doctor who says Lindsay has an upper respiratory infection and can't fly for her own safety as well as the safety of the public."

Awww, poor baby, right? Weeeeellll...The only problem is, Lohan was seen the same day she was allegedly examined by the doctor on a shopping spree in New York's Soho neighborhood, smoking cigarettes. Cough, cough. A little unwise for someone suffering from a respiratory ailment, no? Hmmm.

One of those uber-reliable "sources" also told RadarOnline that Lohan has been partying and boozing it up during her recent visit to New York. Certainly not the behavior of a young lady who is due in court and suffering from the flu.

Should the judge deem Lohan's "sick note" is phony, a bench warrant could be issued for LiLo's arrest.
