It seems that Lindsay Lohan had to learn the hard way that she's not a big shot anymore - and she certainly can't get out of community service by giving performances and letting people follow her around all day.

According to News Day, Judge Mark A Young of the Los Angeles County Superior court extended LiLo's probation for three months to serve another 125 hours worth of community service after her activities were invalidated by a California Judge.

Lindsay's attorney, Shawn Holley said in the Los Angeles Times that the court "had a problem with some of the work shadowing," expressing that they "didn't want to hear more about how that played out."

The Telegraph UK noted that Lohan tried to add her performance at West End as part of her community hours, with her lawyers saying that the performance should count as she was "shadowed" by young individuals while she was on stage at David Mamet's revival of "Speed-The-Plow" in October.

The New York Daily News also said that the former child star went to a "meet and greet" with her London fans that she also tried to include in her hours.

CBS News noted that the Los Angeles court was unperturbed by her celebrity status, with Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White invalidating her meet-and-greets and London performance, saying "She got to shake hands with people, and that's community service. I'd love to hang out with a celebrity all day and see their life, but that's not community service."

This probation is part of the plea deal for Lohan's reckless driving when she rear-ended a truck on the Pacific Coast Highway in 2012. She then denied that she was behind the wheel. The plea deal was made in March 2013 which included 90 days in a rehabilitation center, 18 months in psychotherapy, and 240 hours of community service for her one misdemeanor count each for reckless driving; for providing false information to a police officer; and for willfully resisting, obstructing, or delaying an officer.

The court's refusal to count "work shadowing" and "meet-and-greet' activities tacked another 125 hours of community service A proceeding will follow on March 12 for the court to discuss the terms of her new probation sentence.

Holley said that her client does not have any problems with the additional hours, saying, "She's enjoying doing community service. Her passion is really working with kids... and kids really respond to her."

Do you think the court is right in its decision to extend Lohan's community service hours, or should they have given more drastic measures to keep her in line with the law?
