Michael Lohan couldn't contain himself as he watched 24-year-old daughter Lindsay handcuffed out of Beverly Hills Superior Court Tuesday morning.
"We love you, Lindsay!" he shouted as she was whisked out of court.
The actress' mother Dina also was in court but ignored reporters.
On behalf of Michael, his attorney Lisa Bloom addressed the press: "Michael spent the morning praying for his daughter. He doesn't believe she should be incarcerated. He is devastated she is going to jail and he is ready and able to help her at any time."
It is expected Lohan will serve her time at the all-female Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif. (where Paris Hilton served 23 days of a 45-day sentence for violating her probation in a DUI case in 2007).
Lohan likely won't spend 90 days behind bars. She could be released early due to overcrowding, but she is expected to serve no less than 23 days. (Still, that is more than the 84 minutes she spent in the slammer in 2006 for drug and alcohol cases filed that year.)
