Nancy Grace, the 'Swift Justice' host, and in-your-grill prosecutor, tells Popeater's Rob Shuter that she knows why Lindsay Lohan isn't in jail for habitual shoplifting.
"I believe celebrities get into so much trouble because they think the rules don't apply to them," Nancy said. "I think it becomes instinct that they can do, say whatever they want, and there's no repercussions."
The troubled 24-year-old actress is facing felony grand theft charges for allegedly swiping a $2,500 necklace from a jewelry store last month.
"She's on video! She goes in the store without the necklace. She comes out with the necklace," said an infuriated Grace.
Grace said the reason Lohan wasn't immediately "thrown down on the asphalt" and arrested was due to her race and celebrity status.
"Let's just say you send a black girl into that same jewelry story, or an uneducated person or a poor person, they come away with a $2,500 necklace, honey, they would be thrown down on the asphalt and dragged by their feet back into the store and prosecuted!"
