Lindsay Lohan is rumored to be in SCRAM violation.
Jail seemed like a sure thing for the troubled alcohol-drinking star Lindsay Lohan on Tuesday, June 8, according to the LA Times blog.
Lindsay, still on probation from her June 2007 DUI arrest, really couldn’t afford to tick off the judge, however.
Lohan allegedly imbibed after the MTV Movie Awards anyway.
Lindsay Lohan and Judge Marsha Revels
Los Angeles Judge Revels called an emergency meeting in her chambers for Tues., June 8 at 3 p.m. (PST) upon learning of Lindsay’s SCRAM violation.
SCRAM, the alcohol-monitoring bracelet gracing the actresses ankle at present, had sent out a violation message to the monitoring company on Sunday evening during an MTV after-party, according to Gossip Cop.
Judge orders Lohan’s arrest and sets new bail
Judge Revels met with the LA prosecutor and Lindsay’s lawyer in her closed-door chambers to discuss the violation and report. The end result? Lohan’s $100,000 bail from the Cannes Film Festival passport ‘no show’ was forfeited and a new bail in the amount of $200,000 set.
Lindsay Lohan’s legal supervisor also issued a bench warrant for the arrest of Lohan as well, sending Lindsay’s lawyer scurrying to get a bail bondsman to make bail, yet again on behalf of the starlet.
Arrest warrant to be served on Wednesday, gets halted by bail payment
Lindsay joined her lawyer in a frenzied effort to get bail made and paid before Judge Revels could speed up the anticipated Wednesday public arrest.
Late Tuesday afternoon a bail bondsman paid the requisite ten percent, a $20,000 drop in the bucket for a celebrity, and all the future Linda Lovelace role-player will have to do now is turn herself in on Wednesday and be officially ‘arrested’ and go through the bail out process.
Judge Marsha Revels, the queen of patience
Lindsay Lohan has been blessed to have a judge that has afforded her every opportunity to get it right. Judge Revels is expecting Lohan to toe the line from now until the July 6 probation hearing, but the judge undoubtedly figures the actress will flub up again…soon.
