Lindsay Lohan has reportedly ditched rehab.

The 26-year-old actress is said to have "gotten spooked" by paparazzi outside the Morningside Recovery facility in Orange County, California and left after just a few minutes.

She is believed to have headed straight for LAX to board a flight back to New York.

A source told the New York Daily News: "She went shopping at an electronics store then she was on the rehab property for a couple minutes but got spooked by the paparazzi.

"She was saying, 'I'm not going to rehab. I'm not going to rehab. Take me back to the airport.'

"She's headed back to LAX airport,. The hope is that someone talks some sense into her before she gets on another plane."

A warrant may now be issued for her arrest.

This comes after Lindsay was blasted for choosing the California based rehab over a New York facility which had been approved by Los Angeles prosecutors under the terms of her plea deal in March.

City Attorney Terry White told Judge James Dabney: "I'm clearly puzzled by her decision to go to rehab facility that we hadn't approved. We did our due diligence and investigated facilities given to us by (Lindsay's lawyer) Mark Heller, and we had agreed on a facility. I find out yesterday, from the media, that Ms. Lohan has decided to go somewhere else. It's unacceptable.

"I have three newspaper articles right here about problems with that facility. We need time to investigate the facility."
