LOS ANGELES – Lindsay Lohan has been released from jail, but she’s not exactly a free woman.

The actress was discharged at 1:35 a.m. Monday after serving 14 days of a 90-day sentence for violating her probation in a 2007 drug case, a sheriff’s spokesman said. She is now required to begin a three-month stint in rehab.

A prosecutor has said that Lohan, 24, cannot be released early and will have to spend the entire time in treatment, reportedly at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. The facility and government officials declined to say whether Lohan is a patient there, but paparazzi followed a van that received a police escort to the center after Lohan’s release from jail.

Lohan’s abbreviated jail stay was not unexpected, though it was considerably longer than the 84 minutes she spent at the same facility in 2007.

The judge said during Lohan’s surrender July 20 that she had no control over how long the actress would be jailed, but she did require Lohan to serve her time at a women’s jail run by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, did not immediately return an e-mail message seeking comment.

Actress backs dog adoption

NEW ORLEANS – Most of the roughly 50 abandoned dogs parading under the oaks at New Orleans City Park on Monday were bound for a pet adoption program in Virginia, but two were headed for California with their new owner, actress Pamela Anderson.

“My son was hoping we could take all 50,” Anderson said before latching on to her two new charges — two small brown dogs tentatively identified by shelter officials as Chihuahua mixes. Anderson named them for fellow actresses Gina Lollobrigida and Brigitte Bardot.

Anderson helped walk the dogs as part of a news conference calling attention to a program aimed at helping deal with an overflow of abandoned pets since the BP oil spill.

The Humane Society of Louisiana is working with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and several New Orleans-area shelters to find homes for the dogs.
