Lindsay Lohan Hits Nightclub After Being Sentenced To Rehab (UPDATE)

Was Lindsay Lohan looking for one last hurrah before she heads to rehab? It sure looks like it.

Fresh from pleading no contest to charges of lying to the police and reckless driving, the 26-year-old did what anyone who was just sentenced to 90 days in locked rehab would do -- she hit up a Hollywood nightclub.

TMZ reports that Lohan tried to hide herself from cameras as her SUV pulled up to the AV Club, and was spotted covering her face with a blanket. The throng of paparazzi appears to have ruined the actress's plans, as she decided to take off without ever entering the club.

The decision in the end to skip the club might be the best move Lohan has made in a while, but the fact that she was even there shows where her head is at.

Lohan will soon enter 90 days of locked rehab. According to E! News, with the exception of a death of a family member or a medical necessity, Lohan will not be allowed to leave the treatment facility -- however, she's not exactly going to be on lockdown. The judge in Lohan's case permitted Lohan to complete her rehab and community labor in New York if she so chooses; however, the judge didn't specify which treatment centers are acceptable.

"If she reports to certain privately run facilities such as Promises, she wouldn't be totally locked down," criminal defense attorney David Diamond, who does not represent the actress, told E! News. "You can walk from your suite to pool and from the pool to omelette bar and back to your room."

With that in mind, it's clear that where Lohan decides to seek treatment this time around will say a lot about how committed she is to her recovery.

UPDATE: Lindsay Lohan took to Twitter on Tuesday to deny reports she was spotted trying to get into a Hollywood nightclub.

"Guys relax, that was NOT me at A/V or in the @mrpink SUV. I'm taking this seriously and focused on the road ahead," she tweeted, adding, "I stayed in last night, after a pretty long day...and ordered sushi to my hotel."
