Lindsay Lohan At JFK: Actress Heads To LA After Claiming She Was Too Sick For Court (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

Lindsay Lohan was spotted looking a little ... different at JFK airport on Tuesday night.

X17Online snapped some photos of the puffy-faced actress as she was spotted catching a last-minute flight from New York to Los Angeles just hours after news broke that Lohan's lawyer notified the court that she was too sick to appear at her court hearing scheduled for today.

According to TMZ, the 26-year-old troubled starlet and her mother, Dina, panicked and caught a first-class flight to Los Angeles after being warned that she'd be a wanted woman if she failed to show up in court. We're sure the court wouldn't take kindly to Lohan's sick excuse after she was photographed smoking and shopping in New York.

Sources told the website that Lohan panicked after the photos hit the Web, and started calling people to find out if the judge really would issue a warrant for her arrest if she was a no-show. The "Mean Girls" actress is also said to now regret firing her longtime lawyer Shawn Holley, with sources telling TMZ that Lohan was pleading with her to take her on again as a client because she doesn't like her replacement lawyer, Mark Heller.

Lohan and her new lawyer are scheduled to appear in front of Lohan's old pal Judge Stephanie Sautner for her first hearing on new misdemeanor charges of lying to authorities and reckless driving, stemming from a car accident last summer on the Pacific Coast Highway.

Things aren't looking good for Lohan, as the last time she appeared in front of Sautner to be officially released from her probation, the judge warned her to quit her hard-partying and smarten up.

"You need to live your life in a more mature way, stop the nightclubbing and focus on your work," Sautner told Lohan back in March, though her advice apparently made no impact on the starlet.
