And it’s no surprise to anyone – but Lindsay Lohan has made another dumb mistake. So, The Santa Monica City Attorney -- who is prosecuting Lindsay for allegedly lying to cops after her June car crash -- was willing to keep Lindsay out of jail, if she agreed to check into "lockdown rehab" for 6 months. Well, Lindsay’s lawyer Shawn Holley –the woman who has kept Lindsay out of jail all of this time-- was on her way to court yesterday to meet with the prosecutor and the judge to complete the deal. But Shawn never made it to court, because Lindsay decided to fire her yesterday and hire a new lawyer. A man who was suspended in the '90s from practicing law for 5 years by the way. There's a hearing scheduled for 8:30 this morning – TMZ says Lindsay is scared and now wants Shawn back – so we will see which lawyer shows up to court later this morning.
