Lohan in custody after judge finds probation issue
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lindsay Lohan sported a new accessory after a judge on Wednesday revoked her probation: handcuffs.
The actress was escorted from a hearing in handcuffs after Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner revoked Lohan’s probation because she was ousted from a community service assignment at a women’s shelter.
Bail has been set at $100,000.
“There has been violation after violation,” Judge Sautner said.
The recommendation is the latest legal problem for the 25-year-old Lohan, who was given probation for a 2007 drunken driving case and a misdemeanor theft case this year.
“If jail meant something in the state of California now, maybe I’d put her in jail,” Judge Sautner said.
Lohan in April was ordered to serve 360 hours at the Downtown Women’s Center, an agency that helps homeless women. Judge Sautner said nine of Lohan’s appointments at the center were “just blown off” and she “showed up once and left after an hour.”
“We’re dealing with someone on probation,” said Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Holley. “Most people on probation don’t always do things perfectly.”
Lohan, aside from a role in last year’s film “Machete,” has seen her acting career evaporate in recent years. She has been in perpetual trouble since May 2010.
Another judge determined she violated her probation in a 2007 drunken-driving case and sentenced her to jail and rehab. She faltered after being released early from a rehab facility early and was sent to the Betty Ford Center, where she got in an altercation with a rehab worker who later sued.
Within weeks of her release from Betty Ford, Lohan was accused of taking a $2,500 necklace without permission from an upscale jewelry store near her home in the Venice neighborhood of Los Angeles. Judge Sautner determined the January incident constituted a probation violation, and Lohan was ordered to undergo psychological counseling and perform 480 hours of community service, with 120 hours to be spent at the county morgue.
