Actress Lindsay Lohan got out of her chauffered vehicle outside the Beverly Hills Courthouse at 8:38 this morning, already late and with security still to go through before she arrived inside Judge Marsha Revel's courtroom.

Outside, media, paparazzi, and fans bearing "Free Lindsay!" signs and shouting words of support were there to witness the starlet's arrival as she surrenders to the court and is sent to county jail to serve her 90-day sentence as administered two weeks ago.

Representing Lohan today was Shawn Chapman Holley, who had not been formally relieved of her duties by the court, nor had filed the necessary paperwork to end her representation of her high-profile client, despite her having said publicly she'd quit. Further, Holley sought to clarify to Revel and the court that celebrity attorney Robert Shapiro simply "acted as consultant" on the case, and had not been formally retained as counsel.
