LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lindsay Lohan returns to court Wednesday amid a call from a city prosecutor to have the starlet jailed after encountering problems during her community service.

The hearing before Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner was to be a routine progress hearing for the troubled actress. But late Tuesday a spokesman for the City Attorney's office said the agency would request that Lohan's probation be revoked because she had been ousted from a community service assignment at a women's shelter.

She has since started serving hours with the American Red Cross.

The jail recommendation is the latest legal problem for the 25-year-old Lohan, who remains on probation for a 2007 drunken driving case and a misdemeanor theft case this year.

Lohan's spokesman Steve Honig declined comment on the jail recommendation.
