Prosecutors will demand time in jail for Lindsay Lohan after arguing that she is in violation of her probation in a theft case.
Los Angeles City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan said the recommendation to be made in court is based on the actress' departure from a women's shelter where she had been doing community service.
Li-Lo's spokesman Steve Honig has declined to comment.
The Mean Girls star is due in court to update a judge on her probation progress.
A city prosecutor is overseeing Lindsay's probation in the misdemeanour theft case filed after the actress was charged with taking a 2,500 US dollar necklace without permission. She pleaded no contest in May.
Lindsay's spokesman Steve Honig said the 25-year-old actress is now doing her service with the American Red Cross.
He declined comment on the recommendation that Lohan be sent back to jail.
He said the Hollywood starlet has been working hard to satisfy the terms of her release, including psychological counselling and completing a Shoplifters Anonymous course.
"She's really pounding away," Honig said.
Lindsay took to Twitter on Tuesday evening and posted: "I just want it to be known, that just because I was not followed&photographed during the times I've gone to community service, does NOT mean that I wasn't following my obligations (by going) to the court."
