On Tuesday (June 8), a Beverly Hills judge issued an arrest warrant for Lindsay Lohan and ordered her to post $200,000 bail after she violated a court order to not consume alcohol while wearing a SCRAM alcohol-monitoring ankle bracelet . According to TMZ, the warrant was recalled after bail was posted, so Lohan remains a free woman.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel had a session in chambers with the prosecutor and Lohan’s attorney on Tuesday afternoon and made the announcement shortly thereafter. Revel called the hearing after learning that the alcohol-detection device on Lohan’s ankle sent a report saying that there was a presence of alcohol late Sunday, after the actress attended the MTV Movie Awards.
In court, the judge didn’t talk specifics about how the actress violated the court order, which was issued May 24 . Revel did double Lohan’s bail from the initial $100,000 to $200,000, which is pending a July 6 hearing that will deal with whether Lohan violated the terms of her probation, stemming from a 2007 driving-under-the-influence arrest.
The actress is expected to surrender to authorities as early as Wednesday and will be released on bail. TMZ reported that Lohan’s bail bondsman pulled up to the Beverly Hills courthouse to post the $200,000 bail for the actress and said she forfeited the $100,000 previously posted.
Lohan tweeted Tuesday that she “did not violate anything at all.”
MTV News caught up with Lohan on the red carpet at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards to talk about her role in an upcoming biopic of porn star Linda Lovelace and whether she was frustrated with the quality of roles being offered to her these days.
