Celebrity news: Lohan finally checks into rehab, Witherspoon pleads no contest

Lohan’s rehab approved

Lindsay Lohan has checked into a rehab and will not face a probation violation for leaving another treatment facility after a few minutes, a prosecutor said Friday. Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White said he has received confirmation that Lohan has checked into a rehab facility and he is satisfied with her location. He declined to say where Lohan, 26, is receiving treatment, but a source close to the actress who was not authorized to speak publicly said she has checked into the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif. Lohan is required to spend 90 days in rehab as part of a plea deal in a misdemeanor case filed after a June car accident. (AP)

Witherspoon enters plea

A lawyer for Reese Witherspoon says the actress has pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge resulting from a confrontation with a state trooper in Atlanta. Municipal Court of Atlanta Deputy Solicitor Ronda Graham said Friday that Witherspoon also paid a $100 fine, resolving the case. Georgia State Patrol spokesman Gordy Wright said Friday that the department will release a video of Witherspoon’s arrest. Celebrity website TMZ has aired a copy of the video, which shows Witherspoon asking the trooper, ‘‘Do you know my name?’’ and then adding, ‘‘You’re about to find out who I am.’’ The actress has apologized.
