Lohan off house arrest after 35 days

LOS ANGELES — Lindsay Lohan was freed from house arrest Wednesday morning, ending a drama-filled 35 days and opening the next chapter in the troubled starlet’s efforts to put her court troubles behind her.

Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said Lohan’s electronic monitoring equipment was removed shortly before 10 a.m. and she was removed from the jail system about 10:20 a.m.

Lohan is not entirely free. She still has to complete 480 hours of community service, complete an anti-shoplifting class and comply with other terms of her release.
