(Newser) – Lindsay Lohan is accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace, and now the jewelry store accusing her says the troubled starlet also tried to walk out with a diamond earring just four days prior. La Lohan allegedly tried on a pair of diamond earrings on Jan. 18, and only removed one—then, after looking around a bit more, started to leave the store with the other one still on, that ear covered by her hair. When confronted by a clerk, LiLo “laughed, admitted to her mistake, and removed the earring.”

TMZ notes that this little anecdote could actually help Lindsay, proving that she’s simply absentminded—because it turns out the actress actually left her own earrings, a more expensive pair, on the counter as she walked out. There are other inconsistencies in the police report that could also help, including details of the store owner’s story that have changed. Even so, the gossip site reports that Lohan is scared of going to jail and may plead guilty simply so she can get a plea bargain and avoid prison.
