Lindsay Lohan to be charged with necklace theft

Actress Lindsay Lohan will be charged Wednesday with felony grand theft relating to a necklace allegedly taken from a Venice, California, jewelry store last month, a prosecutor said Tuesday.

Lohan, 24, will be arraigned on the charge at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Los Angeles Airport Superior Court, Deputy District Attorney John Lynch said.

The actress "allegedly walked out of the store with the necklace on January 22," a statement from the district attorney's office said. "The owner reported the theft to the Los Angeles Police Department, which investigated the
allegation and presented evidence to the D.A.'s office last week."

The necklace, which is valued at $2,500, was handed over to police just before they were to execute a search warrant to look for the jewelry in Lohan's Venice, California, apartment last week.

Lohan was already on supervised probation stemming from probation violations related to a 2007 drunk driving conviction.

      I would assume it's due to all the trouble she has been in recently. This isn't going to look good on her record.

      Send her to jail. If a mom trying to get her kids into a better school gets 10 days in jail, then Lohan deserves at least 180. Can you imagine if that same mom had been arrested for drunk driving more than once, theft, drug possession and violated parole?

      Search/Replace "Lohan" with "Palin". Or Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband. Or OctoMom, or Kate Goss-whatever. Basically anyone from the E! Network, or the front page of the checkstand tabloids.

      It's breaking news because people like you keep clicking on the news stories. Do you know that any significant web page keeps track of how many hits they get? Guess how CNN decides what stories are most popular and hence decide what people want to read about? By tracking web page hits. So, by clicking on this story, and likely checking back to see how people respond to your post, you are driving up the hit count, making the story seem more popular, and so CNN concludes that it's a high-interest news story. With that in mind, they keep putting this on the top of the news. So, good job on being ignorant and perpetuating something that you don't want to see anymore.
