Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan was a no-show Tuesday at a Brooklyn daycare center for preschoolers where she was scheduled to complete her remaining 115 hours of court-ordered community service.
Lohan, 28, was supposed to begin community service at the Duffield Children’s Center in Fort Greene. However, a representative of the daycare center told the group of reporters and paparazzi gathered outside that Lohan was “definitely not coming in today,” reading off an email printout that seemed to be sent to the daycare from Lohan’s publicists.
Lohan instead was slated to begin community service on Wednesday.
According to the children’s center, Lohan would be doing arts and crafts with the children in addition to administrative work. The Mean Girls actress was supposed to have arrived in New York on Monday, tweeting “Happy to be home in nyc with my family and friends. Missed this place. ready to help.”
However, according to TMZ, Lohan had landed in New York from London on Tuesday morning instead of Monday, missing her first day of community service.
Lohan’s community service is connected to a 2012 criminal case in which she was convicted for reckless driving and lying to the police after crashing her Porsche into a truck on Santa Monica Boulevard. She had three years to complete 125 hours and had only completed 9 hours and 45 minutes so far.
Lohan would have to work 10-hour shifts daily at the center to complete her hours by May 28. If she fails to do so, Judge Mark A. Young said that “there will be consequences” and a possible nine-month jail sentence.
