LYNWOOD, California - (AP) - Lindsay Lohan was released from a LosAngeles County jail early Monday, less than five hours after shearrived at the suburban women's lockup to serve a 30-day sentencefor violating probation.

The "Mean Girls" actress was booked into the Century RegionalDetention facility in Lynwood at 8:50 p.m. Sunday, in what wasexpected to be a short stay because of jail overcrowding.

Deputy Tony Moore said Lohan was released early Monday, butdidn't have an exact time. News crews staking out the jail said sheleft at 1:40 a.m. in a black Cadillac Escalade sport utilityvehicle, and that she was in her Venice home by 2 a.m.

Lohan had until Nov. 9 to report to the jail.

It's Lohan's fifth jail sentence since being arrested twice fordrunken driving in 2007.

On Wednesday, a judge ordered jail time because Lohan recentlyviolated court orders by getting booted from a community serviceassignment at a women's shelter.

The judge imposed a complicated sentence, telling Lohan that shewill now have to perform all of her community service at the countymorgue or risk serving an additional 270 days in jail.

The sentence also requires Lohan to undergo psychotherapysessions and appear monthly at court hearings between December andMarch. The judge also said Lohan can no longer leave the country andneeds the permission of her new "no-nonsense" probation officerto travel outside California.

Jail overcrowding has led to significantly shortened jail terms.

In 2007, Lohan spent 84 minutes at the jail before beingreleased, and in the past she has served about 20 percent of hersentence, which is roughly six days.

Lohan will have to serve 423 hours at the county morgue, wherefor nearly two weeks she has been mopping floors, cleaningbathrooms and washing dirty sheets.
