Let the soap dropping fun begin, because Lindsay Lohan was unexpectedly denied bail and remanded into custody this morning pending a full probation hearing.
A date for that hearing has not been set, but must take place within 30 days. So she could be sitting in jail until Oct. 23, which wouldn't shock us that this point.
The move by our new hero, Judge Elden Fox, comes as a surprise because he could have revoked the train wreck's probation immediately and sent her to jail.
Lindsay was all smiles en route to court. Oh, how quickly that changed.
By doing so, however, he inadvertently would have let her off the hook.
Due to severe overcrowding, Lindsay would likely have been processed and cut loose on the spot, a sadly customary occurrence for many non-violent criminals.
Therefore, by remanding her without bail until the hearing - at which point she'll be jailed and released due to overcrowding - the judge ensures she does time.
Clever, and for the best. After all, if you're drunk Tweeting about failed drug tests and clearly can't take responsibility, then this last resort may be the only one.The big shock is that bail could be denied. TMZ's legal experts said since the crime is a misdemeanor, the judge had to set bail, which LiLo would post ASAP.
Well, looks like they were mistaken.
Lindsay was in court because she failed two drug tests - one for cocaine and the other for Adderall - thus violating the terms of her early release in August.
Judge Fox did not hear any argument from lawyers for the star or the state before making his ruling. Lindsay Lohan was handcuffed and taken into custody.
As for Lindsay Lohan's reaction, reports say she was as shocked as we were when the judge dropped the hammer and shipped her off with little fanfare.
The latest of many Lindsay Lohan mug shots!
Lindsay looked at her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, before being taken out of the courtroom. She was taken away in sheriff's vehicle, covered by a blanket.
Afterward, her douchenozzle of a father, Michael Lohan, took to the podium outside the jail and blamed Lindsay's lawyers, friends and family for her troubles.
Whatever dude. You're definitely in a position to talk, since you've exploited her your entire life and this kind of behavior stems from upbringing. Just saying.
What do you think? Did the judge make the right call?
