Fox said Lohan had a “positive test for a controlled substance” that he did not identify. He said probation officials are also reviewing Lohan’s compliance with other aspects of her probation, which included frequent meetings with counselors.

“I think that the case law is clear that she is entitled to bail,” Holley said after the hearing. She would not say whether she would appeal Fox’s ruling and left the courthouse with Lohan’s mother Dina, who carried her daughter’s shoes and jewelry in a clear plastic bag.

Los Angeles television stations followed a car said to be carrying Lohan to jail.

She and her mother had arrived at the courthouse together an hour before, while the actress’s father _ with whom she’s publicly sparred _ arrived earlier.

The actress acknowledged failing a court-ordered drug screening last week in a series of Twitter postings.

It was the star’s first appearance before Fox, who had said at a previous hearing he would sentence her to a month in jail for each drug test she skipped or failed.

The actress wasn’t present for that hearing, which was held hours after her release from rehab.

Lohan seemed to acknowledge an addiction problem after news of her positive drug test broke last week.

“Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away over night,” Lohan posted on her Twitter feed last Friday. “I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps.

“This is certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I’m prepared to face the consequences,” her posts said.

The actress remains on probation for a reckless driving and two driving under the influence charges, all misdemeanors. Fox dropped two drug cases at a hearing in August during which he announced Lohan’s release from rehab and set out a strict outpatient treatment schedule that included random drug screenings.

Fox has sealed Lohan’s court file, but a source familiar with the case has told The Associated Press that the actress’ failed test came roughly two weeks after her release from rehab.
