"Entertainment Tonight" promoted the video during a segment on Monday's show. Lohan is seen smiling as she enters the Venice jewelry store Kamofie & Co. The store reported that Lohan took a $2,500 necklace without permission, and prosecutors have charged her with felony grand theft.
The video's release comes days before the "Mean Girls" star returns to court. On Thursday, her attorney is scheduled to tell a judge whether the actress will fight the case or take a plea bargain that carries a guaranteed jail sentence.
A commercial images division of The Associated Press obtained rights to the footage and licensed it to "Entertainment Tonight."
