's housekeeping abilities have come under fire by no less a clean-up patrol than the Los Angeles Police.
On Tuesday, reports the Associated Press, officers responded to a 3 p.m. call from a security company that the burglar alarm went off at the star's Hollywood residence. There, officers reportedly discovered evidence of a potential break-in and what was termed a ransacking.
Only it wasn't a ransacking – just a typical mess in the house, police tell the AP. The condition of the home prompted those on the scene to ask, "Is it normally like this, or did the intruders do it?" said Los Angeles police Officer Karen Rayner.
It was determined that the alarm simply must have tripped. Nothing was stolen, and Lohan, 22, was not home at the time. Her rep did not respond to calls requesting comment.
