Things are going from bad to worse for Lindsay Lohan, who has been turned away from her first community service shift at the Los Angeles County Morgue. LiLo, who was urged by Judge Stephanie Sautner in court yesterday to get at least two full 8-hour shifts under her belt towards her required 120 comm serv hours at the facility, managed to be 40 minutes late for her 8 a.m. shift, and is therefore considered a no-show, says TMZ.Sautner cautioned Lohan yesterday that the Morgue folks don't mess around when it comes to how they run their comm serv program. Why Lohan didn't do the 'pretend you need to be there a half hour earlier than you really do' trick, or even just plain old get up earlier than necessary is beyond most rational folks.

TMZ reports Lohan's rep called the Morgue at 7:40 a.m. to say she was 10 minutes away, however it took her a full hour to get there.

Oh, and this will not go unnoticed by Judge Sautner; TMZ says they learned the Morgue officials "will notify Probation's Volunteer Center -- which monitors [Lohan's] probation -- that Lindsay screwed up again, and the judge will then be notified." Zoinks!

Lohan is already in major hot water for her inadequate progress on performing nearly 500 hours of community service in lieu of jail time. She has been dismissed from the Downtown Women's Center, where she was to put in 360 of her ordered 480 hours, and since Sautner says the only comm serv Lohan can do is what was ordered for her, her next stop was the Morgue, where fulfilling her 120 ordered hours was in theory going to help her get allowed back to the Downtown Women's Center so she could finish all her orders.
