Lindsay Lohan has begun serving house arrest at her Venice, CA townhouse with an electronic monitoring program after being booked at 5:02 a.m. this morning in Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff tells ET that the 24-year-old embattled star was fitted with an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet at the Century Regional Detention Facility and released to serve her time in home detention. The process that took place is known as an "over-the-counter" booking and no booking photo was taken.

Lohan will serve about 35 days on home detention under the supervision of the Sheriff's Department and her release date is expected to be around June 29, says the Sheriff's Dept.

Lohan pled no contest to a misdemeanor theft charge and was found to be in violation of the terms of her probation. The star was previously sentenced to 120 days for violation of probation, but received no additional time for the theft charge.
