Lindsay Lohan was released from jail around 1:35 a.m. (local time) Monday after 14 days behind bars for violating probation on a 2007 conviction for driving under the influence.

"She was picked up by court order by a designated driver," sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore told the Daily News, declining to confirm rumors that mom Dina Lohan picked up her daughter.

"We had to comply with the wishes of the court, and safety and security were the paramount concerns. It wasn't special treatment."

The “Mean Girls” star now is in rehab. After she completes treatment, the actress will be subject to random drug and alcohol testing until Aug. 2011, when her probation term ends. She is still allowed to take certain prescription medications.

In rehab, Lohan will adhere to a strict regimen of a 7 a.m. wake-up time, chores, counseling sessions and curfew. But the rehab center also offers some recreational activities like surfing, snorkeling and yoga to some patients.

Lohan will likely pay the bill for her own treatment, which is estimated to be approximately 10,000 to 15,000 U.S. dollars per month.

If the actress violates any rules, the court could be notified and the judge could potentially throw her back in jail for violating probation. It's unclear if the actress will be assigned a round-the-clock chaperone.
