Lindsay Lohan 'Flees Rehab Minutes After Being Admitted'

Lindsay Lohan has reportedly fled from a rehab facility just minutes after she was admitted.

The troubled actress was slated to check into the Morningside Recovery treatment clinic in California to comply with the terms of the plea deal in her probation violation case.

But speaking to Radar Online, her father, MIchael Lohan confirmed his 26-year-old daughter had left just moments after arriving.

He said: "I have no other choice than to get this out there to help Lindsay."

The 'Freaky Friday' actress - who was due to spend 90 days at the centre - is said to have told staff at the facility that she didn't need help.

A source said: "She told people there that she didn't need rehab, and then she left. Everyone was stunned."

The star was later spotted wandering around an electronics store in the area before threatening to fly back to New York but her father talked her out of it.

“The DA called me to get in touch with Lindsay, who was headed to get on a flight to New York,” her father told The Daily News. “I stopped her from getting on and told her she’d be arrested in New York."

Li-Lo's day of drama has left prosecutors on the verge of asking for an arrest warrant.

“If she’s not in Morningside, she’s in violation of her probation,” Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White told The News.

But her father said Lindsay planned to return to Morningside last night.
