Lindsay Lohan has turned herself in to police in California as a formality, the day after she accepted a plea deal in her misdemeanor car crash case.

The troubled 26-year-old actress was booked at the Santa Monica Police Department and then released Tuesday.

Lohan was sentenced to spend five days in jail, but that time will be served in a locked-down rehabilitation facility. It's part of her plea deal that includes 90 days in rehab, 30 days of community labor, 18 months of psychological counseling, a fine and restitution.

Lohan pleaded no contest Monday to reckless driving and lying to police who were investigating the accident involving the actress in June along the Pacific Coast Highway. A charge of obstructing an officer was dropped.
