Lindsay Lohan, who managed to stay out of trouble for the past few months (while NOT completing the terms of her probation), showed up in court today to get an earful from angry Judge Stephanie Sautner who was upset that Lindsay has apparently not been in compliance with her punishment. Lindsay‘s lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley did her best to try and explain away L. Lo‘s actions but Judge Sauter was not having it.
