Oh, Lindsay, will you ever learn?
It seems as if Lindsay Lohan has entangled herself in yet another jewelry theft, this time involving $100,000 worth of stolen watches and sunglasses from her multimillionaire friend, Sam Magid. Lohan was considered a suspect in the heist, but will not be prosecuted due to lack of evidence.
Since the saga that is LiLo's life is pretty hard to follow, we decided to lay out her latest legal woe in a timeline.
Weekend of Aug. 17 -- Lohan spends the night at Sam Magid's Hollywood Hills home, with several other guests as well as her assistant, Gavin Doyle, after a party.
Saturday, Aug. 18 -- A jewelry theft allegedly takes place at Magid's house.
Sunday, Aug. 19 -- Magid calls the cops to report that $100,00 worth of jewelry, including expensive watches and sunglasses, had been taken from his home, according to E! News.
Monday, Aug. 20 -- TMZ reports that Lohan is being questioned in the alleged jewelry heist, but insists that she had nothing to do with it. At the time, Lohan was not considered a suspect.
Tuesday, Aug. 21 -- The 26-year-old actress and former Playboy centerfold hops on a plane from L.A. to New York, according to TMZ. At this time, Magid believes two of the men Lohan brought with her to the party allegedly stole his stuff, according to TMZ.
Wednesday Aug. 22 -- Lohan hints that she is innocent with a tweet:
All of this negative press is BS.... Whenever I'm doing great, people fabricate lies. It's such a shame. I'm just sayin' xo

Saturday, Aug. 25 -- Police sources tell TMZ that Lohan is a "person of interest" in the jewelry theft . However, Magid moved to recant his story with a written letter to the cops saying nothing was stolen. This could mean case closed.
Lohan sends out a tweet, which can be interpreted as a joke regarding the jewelry heist:

Lohan, who attached a photo of a pile of jewelry with the tweet, refers to Elizabeth Taylor, who she is playing in the Lifetime movie "Liz & Dick."
Monday, Aug. 27 -- Lindsay Lohan becomes a formal suspect in the $100,000 jewelry theft, according to TMZ. Her assistant Doyle is also a formal suspect. LAPD detectives contacted the lawyer for both on Monday in hopes of scheduling an interview, but the request was denied.
Lindsay's father, Michael, maintains his daughter's innocence telling HuffPost's Naughty But Nice Rob: “I have evidence. Sam told me that nothing was stolen and Lindsay did nothing the day after the story broke. I have irrefutable proof and witness. No matter what anyone says, I have witness and proof that Sam Magid said that nothing was stolen.”
Adding, "She has been at his house many times and never took a thing and she was never anywhere near his room at all. She was in the theater with all the people and slept downstairs with her brother Cody, my son. This is a sick witch hunt.”
Tuesday, Aug. 28 -- Lohan claims that she has been framed, according to TMZ. She reportedly tells friends the real culprit behind the $100,000 theft is a man who says he is Suge Knight's son, Andrew. Andrew reportedly denies these allegations. Later Tuesday, TMZ learns that the D.A. has rejected the case entirely, due to insufficient evidence.
But, not so fast, Lohan becomes a suspect in a second case, according to TMZ. The website reports that Santa Monica police officers are trying to get in touch with the actress to determine if she lied to them about her involvement in a June car crash in Santa Monica.
In March 2011 Lohan plead "no contest" to the theft of a $2,500 necklace. Lohan was sentenced to 120 days in jail. Her probation ended on March 29, but her informal probation extends to May 2014. She could face up to 245 days in jail if convicted of another crime before the theft probation ends, according to CNN.
UPDATE: Lohan and her rep Doyle will reportedly not be prosecuted in the jewelry heist due to lack of evidence, according to GossipCop.
“Lindsay is glad this matter has been cleared up so she can focus on her upcoming projects," her rep told GossipCop. "It is unfortunate that many media outlets were quick to point fingers and jump to conclusions without having all the facts.”
