Lindsay Lohan packed off to morgue

Close brush with death for DUI thespiatrix

Talented thespiatrix and drunk driver Lindsay Lohan will do two four hour shifts in a morgue as part of a court-ordered programme designed to hammer home to DUI perps the consequences of getting sloshed behind the wheel.

Lohan will also do two days working in a hospital emergency room as part of her punishment for misdemeanour drunken driving and cocaine raps, to which she pleaded guilty last August.

The announcement came at a court hearing yesterday on Lohan's progress towards keeping her end of a plea bargain on the charges. She has, as regular readers know, already spent a harrowing 84 minutes in jail as a result of her booze-fuelled escapades. ®
