(Newser) – Lindsay Lohan arrived bright and early at LA's Lynwood Jail today to surrender for a house arrest sentence related to the theft of a necklace, according to TMZ. The 24-year-old actress will be cooped up in her townhouse for roughly 35 days with the electronic ankle bracelet she was fitted for today. She isn't completely off the hook when that period ends: Lohan also got 480 hours of community service. She pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor charge.
