Despite the SCRAM device that currently adorns her ankle, Lindsay Lohan is actually able to drink and stay out of jail all she wants ... just at a steep price.
Think five figures per cocktail.
The bail bondsman who saved her ass Tuesday, David Perez, told TMZ in an interview that Lohan didn't really forfeit her $100,000 bail as we first reported.
When Lindsay's ankle monitor went off, the judge issued a bench warrant and set bail at $100,000. But that was tacked on to her existing $100,000 bail.
BUYING FREEDOM: Lindsay is free to as long as she can afford it.
Essentially, Lindsay promptly forked over 10 percent to the bail bondsman, Perez, who posted on her behalf. So she's down $20,000 in a month, but free!
Here's the interesting thing, though - this is as far as Judge Marsha Revel can take it. If Lindsay is drinking again, the judge will go through the same drill.
She can't revoke bail altogether and throw Lindsay in jail for violating the terms of per probation because the case involves only a misdemeanor charge.
Revel can tack on more bail, but the train wreck can just pay it.
So as long as Lindsay Lohan keeps paying 10 percent of any bail increase, bottoms up! And we thought the $10 Bud Lights at Les Deux were expensive.
