(Newser) – Lindsay Lohan was taken out of court in handcuffs today after a furious Judge Stephanie Sautner revoked her probation. Lohan’s bail bondsman will have her out on bail later today, but the actress could now wind up spending up to 18 months in prison; the judge set a hearing for Nov. 2 to decide her fate, TMZ reports. Sautner, who noted with frustration that prison overcrowding made a jail sentence unlikely, also ordered Lohan to complete 16 hours of community service at the morgue before that hearing.

The judge expressed complete disgust with Lohan’s failure to show up at the Downtown Women’s Center for community service, reading incredulously from a probation report in which Lohan said she didn’t find the center “fulfilling.” And she scoffed at excuses that Lohan had to leave town to work, saying she’d warned Lohan to do the service quickly in case she got a movie role—“I mean, she is supposed to be an actress, from what I hear.” Click for more.
