The mother of actress Lindsay Lohan won’t go to jail for speeding and driving drunk on a New York highway.

A judge ordered Dina Lohan on Tuesday to pay over $3,000 in fines and fees. She will also perform 100 hours of community service and participate in an anti-drunken driving program.

Her driver’s license remains suspended. The 51-year-old’s sentence includes a requirement that she install an alcohol-detecting ignition lock on her vehicle.

Lohan pleaded guilty in April to aggravated driving while intoxicated and speeding in Nassau County on Long Island in September. She has said she was fleeing paparazzi.

State police say Lohan was driving 77 miles per hour in a 55-mph zone. They say her blood-alcohol level was 0.20, more than double the legal limit.

Back onstage

Julia Stiles is returning to the New York stage in a quirky little comedy about a one-night stand that has long-term implications.

The Cherry Lane Theatre said Tuesday the actress will next star in Scott Organ’s “Phoenix.” James Wirt will play her love interest, and Jennifer DeLia will direct.

“Phoenix” begins performances July 28 and opens Aug. 7.

Streak ends

The reign of the winningest female contestant in “Jeopardy!” history has come to an end.

Julia Collins, 31, lost during her 21st appearance on the taped episode that aired Monday. The Chicago-area resident accumulated a total of $428,100 during her 20 victories on the syndicated series.

Collins said she was glad her record might serve as an example of female achievement.

“If it helps dispel the idea that women aren’t as good ‘Jeopardy!’ players as men, that would be great,” she said. “It’s good to see women being applauded for being smart.”

Collins will be back for the “Jeopardy!” tournament of champions next season.
