Is this a cry for help or rather, prison? Why, oh, why would Lindsay Lohan miss a flight from NYC to L.A right before her mandatory court appearance in L.A... at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow?!

TMZ reports that instead of boarding the flight she was scheduled to be on last night, LiLo hit an NYC club to watch the band City of the Sun play.

Granted, a concert sounds (literally) way better than a six-hour flight, but Lindsay isn’t in a position to make such luxurious choices: She is facing a trial for allegedly lying to cops in regards to a car accident that occurred last year on the Pacific Coast Highway.  

This is not the first time Lindsay has missed a flight. Last April, the troubled starlet missed a flight to D.C for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. She also missed a court date back in 2010.  

We’re guessing LiLo doesn’t have to wait in stand-by to board another flight, but still, why would she risk any behavior that would further fudge up her reputation at this critical time? Our advice to Lindsay:Hon, if you aren’t airborne by now, hop that red-eye tonight and get your beauty sleep on the plane.

The trial will be televised live on TMZ.
