In a previous post, we shared with you the latest in the saga that is Lindsay Lohan, who was ordered to spend another 30 days in jail by Judge Elden Fox. Fortunately for her, that order was overruled by the supervising judge, and she ended up spending only 15 hours in jail and was allowed to post a $300,000 bond.
We wondered about what will be next for Ms. Lohan in the rehab department; the question of alcohol consumption was addressed by an order to have her wear an alcohol monitoring device and to steer clear of establishments that mainly sell alcohol.
Another feature on People.com shared what was reportedly the actress’ next stop: rehab. Apparently, Ms. Lohan intends to voluntarily check herself into a rehab facility soon – despite the fact that she was released early from her court-mandated stay in the UCLA rehab, because the doctors felt that she no longer needed to be there. It now seems that was not exactly the best decision at that point, although we do not claim to have any medical expertise whatsoever and are just giving our two cents.
People shared the following statement, given to them by an unnamed source, who is described only as someone who is close to Ms. Lohan: “She will step up her treatment and do more than what she was previously ordered to do.” The source said that, this time around, the actress is serious about her recovery – although we will have to say that we have heard that before. Could this really be the point where Lindsay will turn her life around?

Actress Lindsay Lohan did not spend that much time in jail this time around; she was released on Friday night, according to a feature on People.com. And no, it was not due to overcrowding; a judge allowed her to post bail instead.
Ms. Lohan was initially denied bail by Judge Elden Fox, but this order was overruled by a supervising judge. She was released just before midnight on $300,000 bail.
She will, however, be fitted with an alcohol-monitoring device within 24 hours after her release, and she has been ordered to steer clear of establishments where “alcohol is the chief item of sale.” There was no mention of rehab in the People article, though; which some may think is odd, considering that she reportedly tested positive for cocaine in one of her failed drug tests.

After successfully hurdling two random drug tests, reports came out that actress Lindsay Lohan has her first suspected violation since an alcohol monitoring bracelet was placed on her ankle on May 24. We say suspected because Lindsay tweeted that she had not done anything that can trip off her SCRAM device – but it did.
As a result, prosecutors for Ms. Lohan’s case as well as her attorneys were called to the courtroom of Judge Marsha Revel – who is certainly becoming even less fond of Lindsay, we have to assume – for a closed session on Wednesday afternoon, according to a report on the Los Angeles Times. The judge then issued a warrant for Lindsay’s arrest, for which the actress posted $200,000 bail. The report said that the judge did not give any specific details regarding the issuance of a warrant, other than to say that it was being done due to a violation on the part of Ms. Lohan of the orders given by the court.
Unnamed sources shared that Lindsay Lohan’s SCRAM device sent out a report that indicated the presence of alcohol after the MTV Movie Awards. The time was pegged at late Sunday or early Monday; Ms. Lohan had attended both the awards and an after-party.
Lindsay’s lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley issued a statement that indicated that the bracelet was able to detect alcohol, but said that the accuracy of the report could not be verified. Lindsay denied it outright, and we quote the following from the LA Times: “My SCRAM wasn’t set off — It’s physically impossible considering I’ve (done) nothing for it to go off. All of these false (reports) are absolutely wrong.”

Actress Lindsay Lohan finally made it to court on Monday, where Judge Marsha Revel ordered that she be fitted with an alcohol monitoring device and subjected to random drug and alcohol testing once a week. Photos of Ms. Lohan during the proceedings showed her in a rather somber mood.
In a video from ABC News, Judge Revel rattled of a few things for Ms. Lohan to comply with in order to remain out on bond. Mentioned first was that she will be prohibited from taking any alcoholic beverage; that she will need to wear a SCRAM device, to be fitted within 24 hours after the proceedings; that she needs to undergo weekly random drug testing in Los Angeles; and that she needs to attend all her alcohol classes “as scheduled”.
Judge Revel specified that the only time that Ms. Lohan can reschedule an alcohol class is if it coincides with the conduct of a random drug test.
Lohan’s lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley spoke on behalf of the actress and explained to the court that her client had projects lined up – photoshoots and a movie were mentioned – that may be impacted by the fact that she had a scram device on and that she had to submit herself to random drug testing specifically in Los Angeles. Holley mentioned that the actress had intentions to travel to Texas to shoot her movie. Unfortunately, the judge did not seem too sympathetic to Ms. Lohan’s concerns and suggested that the actress may have to delay these projects, and insisted that the testing needs to be done in Los Angeles.
