The actress tends to stare blankly at the camera, but she has shown hints of emotion

The details of Lindsay Lohan‘s legal troubles change from year to year, but one thing remains the same – she gets to have her picture taken.

Lohan, 25, sat for the police camera for at least the fifth time in her criminal career on Wednesday, as she was handcuffed and detained at the courthouse for missing too many community service appointments. (She later made bail and was released.)

The actress previously posed for mugshots twice in 2007 and twice in 2010. In the latest photo, she is largely expressionless – lips slightly apart, her blonde hair framing a blank gaze.

This is her typical approach, in contrast to some other celebrities who, a bit incongruously, have smiled broadly when booked. The most emotion Lohan has shown for the camera is a slight look of outrage in her very first mugshot in July 2007, and a hint of a smile in her third, in July 2010.

Lohan is due back in court Nov. 2 for a hearing to formally determine if she did indeed violate her probation. In the meantime, she is set to begin janitorial duty at the L.A. County morgue two days a week.

“She’s holding up fine and she’s a strong girl,” says her spokesman, Steve Honig. “She understands that she has to comply with the court and it’s the judge’s ruling and she gets that. She is gonna do what she needs to do.”
