Lindsay Lohan will not be sent to jail, for now. Thanks to $100,000 posted by a representative for the troubled actress, the warrant for her arrest was withdrawn on Thursday evening (May 20).
According to Los Angeles Sheriff spokesman Steve Whitemore, Lohan’s lawyer must appear in court Monday morning when a judge will set the date for her probation-revocation hearing. It is not clear if Lohan is required to attend Monday’s hearing at the Beverly Hills, California, courthouse, Whitemore said.
CNN reports Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel revoked Lohan’s probation and issued a bench warrant for her arrest after she failed to appear at a hearing on Thursday.
Lohan’s attorney Shawn Chapman Holley said her client missed the hearing because she is stuck in France due to her passport being stolen while she was attending the Cannes Film Festival. Holley said Lohan was issued a temporary passport by the U.S. Embassy in Paris on Thursday and will fly back to the United States as soon as possible.
Judge Revel said Lohan cannot drink alcohol until a full hearing on her probation revocation, and she will be fitted with a bracelet to detect if she has been drinking. Random drug testing also will be performed on the actress, because of previous evidence she was under the influence of cocaine, Revel said.
“I warned her before,” the judge said. “She knew it was very serious.”
Lohan has been on probation since pleading guilty in August 2007 to two misdemeanor counts of being under the influence of cocaine, no contest to two counts of driving with a blood-alcohol level above 0.08 percent and one count of reckless driving. Her probation was extended for another year in October after Lohan struggled to comply with court-mandated terms of her sentence, and prosecutors have warned that she faces jail time if she violates probation again.
