The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department released Lindsay Lohan's booking photo. Lohan was taken into custody following a brief hearing at the Los Angeles Superior Court to serve a 90-day sentence.

Lindsay Lohan has been taken into custody -- a bit late, but without incident -- to begin serving her jail sentence for a probation violation.

Lohan stood up and was handcuffed behind her back after a brief hearing Tuesday. She arrived at court about 10 minutes late, prompting Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel to begin calling other matters.

Lohan was accompanied to court by her mother, Dina, and younger sister Ali. Both wiped away tears after the 24-year-old actress was taken into a lockup for the 90-day sentence, which is likely be shortened in part because of jail overcrowding.

Her father, Michael Lohan, yelled, "We love you Lindsay!" as his daughter was led away.
