Overcrowding in the L.A. County Jail has become a saving grace for Hollywood’s baddest stars. It got Lindsay Lohan off the hook after just five hours in the big house on November 7 — not the 30 days she was slated to serve. Check out our list of other stars who have completed shockingly short jail stints.

Khloé Kardashian’s probation violation landed her in jail for a whole three hours in 2008. Her 30-day sentence was shorted due to overcrowding and the chaos caused by her presence. She revealed to Ryan Seacrest, “They released me early because I was a threat to the prison... The whole prison was on lockdown.”

The late actress Zsa Zsa Gabor spent three days in jail after slapping a police officer. She served her time but showed little remorse.

Actress Michelle Rodriguez chose five days in jail over 240 hours of community service when she was convicted of drunk driving in 2005. To each her own.

Sir Paul McCartney of The Beatles was caught with half a pound of marijuana by Japanese customs officials in Tokyo in 1980. Fortunately for him, he only served nine days behind bars instead the possible seven-year sentence.

Paris Hilton’s simple life got more complicated when she drove with her license suspended and two drunk driving convictions under her belt. The heiress was sentenced to 45 days in jail, but her good behavior got her sprung in half the time.
