Arrest warrant issued for Lohan, jail possible
Question of the Day
BEVERLY HILLS, CALIF. (AP) - A judge issued an arrest warrant Monday for Lindsay Lohan after the actress acknowledged failing a drug test less than a month after she was released from inpatient rehab.
However, the warrant was stayed, and Lohan was allowed to remain free pending a hearing Friday to determine if she violated her probation.
Fox previously threatened the actress with 30 days in jail for each violation. He must now decide whether to send her back to jail or into treatment.
Lohan must attend the hearing. A message left with her attorney Shawn Chapman Holley was not immediately returned.
Lohan confirmed on her Twitter page last week that she failed the court-ordered drug and alcohol screening.
“Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test,” she tweeted.
She also said, “substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it.”
Lohan often posts updates with the account that’s verified by Twitter as belonging to the actress.
Lohan was released from jail on Aug. 2 after serving 14 days of a 90-day sentence for violating her probation in the 2007 case involving drug use and driving under the influence.
Another judge had required her to begin a three-month stint in rehab at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Fox, however, agreed on Aug. 25 to release her from inpatient rehab after reviewing reports by her doctors and medical records from a three-year period.
The actress withdrew her case against the brokerage, which she had claimed made her the implied target of the joke.
E-Trade Financial Corp. spokeswoman Susan Hickey said the case’s end reflected a “simple business decision” for the New York-based firm, but she wouldn’t discuss details.
