Lindsay Lohan busted trying to sneak out of rehab

45258, LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - Tuesday September 21 2010. Lindsay Lohan wears an oversized grey jumper for dinner with her brother and friends.

The story isn’t as sensational as the title makes it sound, but it’s still damn funny. Apparently Lindsay and a co-conspirator tried to climb a fence at the Betty Ford Center in order to get access to a soda machine at a medical facility next door. Lindsay’s friend got her clothing stuck on the fence and couldn’t get down, so they had to ask a staff member on the grounds for help and were of course turned in. I guess the takeaway from this story is that Lindsay is up to her old tricks and that it’s such a strict facility she can’t even get a coffee or a diet coke. (She can smoke outside, though, according to a former Betty Ford attendee interviewed by Hollyscoop.) Radar reports that she can’t watch TV, either, and we’ve already heard that her internet and cell phone privileges were taken away. It’s not prison though – yet!

Lindsay Lohan was caught trying to escape the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California, earlier this week, is exclusively reporting.

But all Lohan, 24, desperately wanted to score was a coke fix — of the cola variety!

In a tale so bizarre it is almost unbelievable, has confirmed the Hollywood wild child attempted to flee the Betty Ford grounds to sneak into the nearby Eisenhower Medical Center, in a bid to buy a soda from a vending machine.

Lohan’s rouse was almost pulled off it wasn’t for her accomplice, another patient, whose clothing got caught on the fence.

“Lindsay and her co-conspirator were forced to give it up and flag down a volunteer, who was crossing the center’s grounds on a golf cart,” a source, with knowlegde of the situation, told

“The pair was safely returned, decaffeinated, to their hall, were they were the center of a process meeting over what they had done.”

There is no soda dispenser at the clinic where luxuries such as caffeine, along with phone calls and television, are strictly prohibited.

I would go nuts without my morning coffee, so I guess I understand why Lohan is sneaking out to get some soda. I find it really hard to believe that they don’t serve coffee there at least. INF Daily backs up Radar’s report that caffeine is banned, so it probably is. I would get headaches for a few days if I went cold turkey off coffee and it would suck. I’m sure it’s harder to withdraw from all the other stuff Lindsay is on, though.

Lindsay is reportedly hoping to avoid jail with an extended rehab stay. Her team is also working to decrease her time on probation in order to make it less likely that she’ll screw up. (Ha!) Is the judge going to get wind of this and give Lindsay a harsher sentence for it? We can only hope, although Lindsay will surely try and blame the friend for it. She can probably get some damn coffee in jail at least but it’s not like they’re going to let her smoke or roam around outside.

BEVERLY HILLS, CA - SEPTEMBER 24: Actress Lindsay Lohan raises her arms as she enters a magnetometer upon arrival to the Beverly Hills Courthouse for her probation hearing, after her probation was revoked, on September 24, 2010 in Los Angeles, California. Judge Elden Fox revoked her probation earlier in the week after she failed a drug test but is has held it until today. The judge had warned that any failure could send her back to jail.

    OH, this will look good to the judge. If he lets her off early now its only because he was paid to do it…this girl is NEVER going to learn. Is the death watch back on yet? the only thing that is going to make her change is her ODing…call it cruel but she isn’t going to change her ways.

  2. SammyHammy says:

    She was trying to get out so she could get a soda. Just a soda.

    Sure….I believe that.

  3. Sumodo1 says:

    Oh, well, it’s real Lindsanity striking again. No moritorium on real news.

  4. Praise St. Angie! says:

    I also don’t believe she was just sneaking out to get a soda.

    and to Me1st…I’d be willing to bet that she has OD’d already, and it hasn’t stopped her yet. In fact, wasn’t she once found “unresponsive”, lying in the hallway of the hotel she was living at? And how many times has she been hospitalized for “exhaustion”? (which a lot of people thought were ODs…)

    I think the only OD that would stop her is one that kills her.

  5. serena says:

    Well, anyway if it’s not this time it will be the next.

  6. Ferguson. says:

    Why the f*ck did they believe she was trying to get out just for a soda? It’s Lindsay we’re talking about, COME ON!

  7. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    @Ferguson.. that was just exactly what I was thinking.

    Great Story Lilo… Dont stand too long in one place, lightening may strike you today, sprint in zig zag pattern, dear, zig zag.

  8. dorothy says:

    Not suprised.

  9. poopie says:

    and they BELIEVED HER? it was ONLY a SODA, honest ….she is such the loser with all caps! why is she all over the place? little talent ugly human. proud arentcha dina?

  10. anoneemouse says:

    Silly people – she’s just “reliving her college days”!!!! Sounds like she is taking her rehab “seriously” as reported.

  11. Green Is Good says:

    She’s not a “wild child”. She’s a grown ass WOMAN.

    Think I’ll go grab me a Diet Pepsi!

  12. Jessica says:

    PLEASE just OD and die already.
    LL is NEVER going to change.

  13. logan says:

    Just when did they start sniffin soda?
    Just turn the dumb bit** loose.

  14. Toe says:

    She looks nice in the first picture. She really is a beautiful girl.

  15. Raccoon Princess says:

    Yeah, I totally believe Cocaine Lucy and Meth Ethyl were scaling a large fence just for a soda.

  16. dread pirate cuervo says:

    When my ex was in rehab there was no regular coffee, no soda, & no chocolate. But look on the bright side, Lindsay, you can get free coffee at AA or NA everyday for the rest of your life!!!

  17. Laura says:

    I get why they would ban caffeine, but how can they ban caffeine while allowing nicotine? I guess hell might break loose if they had to break people of their nicotine addictions as well.

  18. chasingadalia says:

    “Really, guys! I just wanted coke! Uh, I mean, a Coke!”

  19. Tia C says:

    It’s possible that this is true. She is immature and dumb enough to try to hop a fence out of rehab to get a soda. Many moons ago during college I did a stint in a posh rehab much like the ones she frequents. Oddly, they do allow you to smoke cigarettes, but they don’t allow caffeine. And ironically I quit smoking while I was there, but never stopped jonesing for the caffeine. So I can understand her seemingly mindless quest for a caffeinated soda. I don’t think she’s stupid enough to try to actually escape rehab. She knows she would only end up in jail if she did that. Yep, like I said – immature and dumb enough to pull a stunt like this.

  20. minnie says:

    That’s exactly what I thought, Laura. All the nicotine you want, but no caffeine?? Strange.

  21. paranel says:

    I think ” they were trying to break into the pharmacy” is more like it.

  22. L says:

    I knew someone who was in rehab with her. The day before her “graduation” they went to town scored some noz and got high all day on that. I feel bad for her because as a woman her crack antics are way more scrutinized than say… Johnathan Rhys Meyers who even sunk so low as to say the n word at an airport. If Lindsay did that she would be crucified. Drew Barrymore was considered trash too but everyone forgets that.

  23. BReed says:

    I am an RN who has worked in Rehab. I started working in this field in 1986. The rules on admission were no caffeine but almost 100% of the patients (most of the staff, too, including nurses)were heavy cigarette smokers. There was so much smoke, they had to install industrial sized exhaust systems in the ceilings. Could not smoke in their rooms, only the common areas. Nicotine was never discouraged. Same in AA and NA meetings…clouds of smoke!!! Now there are smoke free meetings and Rehab centers are making the smokers go outside with staff to smoke. I wish they would get patients off nicotine when they enter rehab. The first 48 hrs are the worst. Why not kick it all at once????

  24. GatsbyGal says:

    Scaling a fence to break out of rehab and get soda?

    Guys, this is her SOBER. What an idiot.

  25. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “I feel bad for her because as a woman her crack antics are way more scrutinized than say… Johnathan Rhys Meyers who even sunk so low as to say the n word at an airport.”

    Lohan’s are not “more scrutinized” because she’s a woman, it’s because they happen a LOT more often. More often than just about anyone else in hollywood.

    I seem to remember Robert Downey Jr.’s drugged out shenanigans making headlines, as well as Rhys Meyers’. And Pete Doherty, too.

    it’s what LL is KNOWN for, so of course that’s what people/the press are looking for.

  26. rudy5 says:

    u forgot to add [sic] after coke 🙂

  27. Red says:

    They act like it’s so tough in there, give me a break. I know for a fact that they even have hair people come in and do their hair. Try going to a REAL rehab.
    Also in reference to the smoking, it’s actually recommended by most doctors NOT to quit smoking when you quit drugs, but to give yourself a year or so. MOST people with a serious drug addiction will relapse and sometimes smoking can ease the need so it’s the lesser of two evils

  28. Innocent says:

    @Tia C
    I think this story is rubbish like Jonathon Jaxson said but until Oct 22nd she is out on bail so she is “voluntarily” there.
    I think her team are trying to work out a deal
    If the rehab becomes court ordered it will be easier to complete as she has been there for 3 weeks.
    It appears the only reason that she is there is to stay out of jail and get off probation.

  29. TeeTee says:

    all I could do was laugh, old Lins!!!
    she has the spark in her.

  30. Jeri says:

    They probably didn’t believe her either but you can’t prove “intent.” They probably put her lame excuse out there to get laughed at but Lindsay is so full of lame excuses she wouldn’t get the humor.

  31. wunderkindt says:

    Why are cigs allowed and diet soda isnt?

    That seems weird.

  32. Jag says:

    Do any of these rehabs actually work? It makes no sense to me to allow cigs but not caffeine. Caffeine, in moderate amounts, is actually good for you; while everyone knows the dangers of smoking. If they’re going to make them stop doing everything – which I think is a bit much for the brain to process – then truly make it everything. Perhaps if they’d let them have their caffeine and cigs, they’d be more willing to work on getting off the other things.

  33. CB Rawks says:

    That good behaviour should help get her probation cut shorter. She’s so gosh darn intelligent.

  34. Kalle says:

    I don’t understand why there is no TV or internet? It’s hard to snort, but does miracles for passing the time. Is BF some kind of amish sect or what?

  35. original kate says:

    yeah, i’m sure it was coca cola she was after. *rolls eyes*
