LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — Lindsay Lohan has pleaded not guilty to felony grand theft of a $2,500 necklace — a case that could return the troubled starlet to jail rather than the big screen.

She entered the plea Wednesday through her attorney.

Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz set bail at $40,000. He says it appears Lohan violated her probation and told her not to push her luck by getting into any more trouble.

The “Mean Girls” star was met by a swarm of photographers when she arrived at the Airport Courthouse near Los Angeles International Airport for her arraignment in a white dress and sunglasses.

Prosecutors claim the 24-year-old starlet took the necklace in January while on probation for a 2007 drunken driving case.

If convicted of the theft charge, Lohan could face up to three years in state prison.

    Lindsay Lohan…WHO CARES!!!! Why is this the opening of the newscast?! You spent almost 5 minutes talking about her continued troubles with the law. Why does she get so much attention? All you are doing is feeding the fire.

    How is this real news? She is obviously lost, out of reality! Not within a consciously aware mind! Not news! She is an over paid actress! This happening should only be on TMZ or something like access hollywood, not on your local news! I hate that I know so much about this person, it sucks!
