LOS ANGELES – Actress Lindsay Lohan arrived at a Lynwood jail Thursday to serve time for a drunk driving conviction.

Seventy-nine minutes, to be exact.

The star of “Mean Girls” and “The Parent Trap” pleaded no contest in August to drunk driving charges while admitting to using cocaine in two incidents.

As part of the deal with prosecutors, she agreed to spend one day in county jail.

Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said Lohan was booked into the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood on Thursday after being dropped off by her lawyer.

She underwent “the normal booking process,” including being fingerprinted and photographed, Whitmore said.

“She was placed in a holding cell by herself,” Whitmore said.

Lohan was first arrested by Beverly Hills police over the Memorial Day weekend after she allegedly lost control of her Mercedes and crashed into some shrubs. Police said the actress left the scene and was taken to Century City Doctors Hospital, where she eventually was tracked down by police and arrested.

Police said someone drove her heavily damaged car from the scene of the crash. They later located it at a nearby condominium complex. Police said a small amount of cocaine was found inside.

Lohan was booked on suspicion of possessing a “usable amount” of cocaine and leaving the scene of an accident, a charge that prosecutors chose not to pursue because the actress sought medical help. A few days after the incident, Lohan checked into a Malibu drug-rehabilitation center.

On July 24, Lohan was arrested by Santa Monica police after the mother of one of her assistants reported that she was being chased by the actress in her SUV. Police said cocaine was found in Lohan’s pocket when she was booked into jail.

She was released on $25,000 bail and promptly checked into another rehab center.
