Lindsay Lohan Thinks Meeting Fans Counts Towards Community Service, but a Prosecutor Doesn't Agree!

A California prosecutor doesn't like that Lindsay Lohan thinks hanging out with fans counts towards her court-mandated community service.

The 28-year-old actress received credit for attending a meet-and-greet with volunteers involving a play she was a part of, but Santa Monica Deputy City Attorney Terry White told Judge Richard A. Stone that this shouldn't fly, according to a local NBC affiliate.

"If this was Lindsay Smith, nobody would allow this," he said. "I'd love to hang out with a celebrity all day and see their life, but this is not community service."

Lohan, who has been spending most of her time in London as of late, also received credit for a "work shadowing experience" with two people, which White described as "basically hanging out with her."

The Mean Girls star has come down with Chikungunya, a rare, mosquito-borne virus, leaving her very ill, but according to White, that shouldn't be a reason for her to skip out on her community responsibilities. But LiLo's attorney, Shawn Holley, insisted that she has been keeping up with her work despite her virus.

He said a "true level of community service has been performed by Ms. Lohan."

Lohan's mandated community service is a result of pleading no contest in March 2013 to reckless driving and lying to police in connection with a June 8 collision on the Pacific Coast Highway. She originally told police that she was a passenger in the Porsche that crashed into a dump truck, but law enforcement later determined she was behind the wheel at the time of the accident.

A judge ruled that the Freaky Friday actress had to complete 30 days of community service, spend 90 days in a rehab facility and undergo 18 months of therapy during a two-year probationary term.

Another hearing is scheduled for Feb. 18.
