Lindsay Lohan narrowly avoided jail again yesterday after another warrant was issued for her arrest, only to be promptly recalled after she posted bail.
This voided her previous bail, which she was free on. A little background:
Lohan probation when she failed to appear in court last month for a status hearing. Judge Marsha Revel revoked her probation and set bail at $100,000.
In return for bail, Lindsay was to appear for a hearing on the probation violation July 6. After her alcohol monitor went off Sunday, that bail is forfeited.
Instead of throwing Lindsay in jail pending the July hearing, Revel allowed her to post new bail - set at $200,000 - to remain free. She did so promptly.
Less than an hour after the warrant was issued, a bondsman delivered $20,000 bail - the standard 10 percent - to keep the actress out of the slammer.
Just when you thought Lindsay Lohan couldn't be more of a mess.
The judge could have jailed her outright this time, but didn't. If Lindsay violates the terms of her probation and the SCRAM program again, she won't be as lucky.
Lohan's warrant was issued after her SCRAM bracelet went off at an MTV Movie Awards party, in what a D.A. spokeswoman called "an alcohol-related violation."
Maybe going bar hopping with the thing isn't the best idea.
In a series of Tweets, Lohan, who lives in denial, predictably wrote: "I did not violate anything ... at all ... My scram wasn't set off Its physically impossible ..."
"I've been more than I'm compliance [sic] & feeling great."
Not according to her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, who tells TMZ the ankle bracelet "indicated the presence of a small amount of alcohol on Sunday night."
Holley added, "Having just received the report, I am not in a position to speak to its accuracy or validity, however, Ms. Lohan maintains that she has been in complete compliance with all of the terms of her probation and her bail."
So either the SCRAM is inaccurate, or Lindsay's lying. Who do you believe?
