  • According to a relative of an inmate housed at the same facility as Lindsay Lohan, prisoners in Lohan's unit are already tired of her presence, due to the fact that the entire unit has to go into lockdown whenever she needs anything: "All the inmates are sick of Lindsay. It's almost like Lindsay Lohan's here, but she's not. Like if she even moves, they put the whole facility on lockdown. It happens all the time. For example, just yesterday [Friday], Lindsay had to go to the mini-clinic, and the whole place was on lockdown again." [People]
