An arrest warrant has been issued for Lindsay Lohan and we've got the deets. The Beverly Hills Police Department released the following statement Friday:
"In response to media inquiries, [the] Beverly Hills Police Department is confirming a warrant was in fact issued today [March 13] for the arrest of Lindsay Lohan."
"The $50,000 warrant issued by the Beverly Hills Superior Court stems from a May 2007 arrest of Miss Lohan for DUI and hit-and-run. The circumstances leading to the issuance of the warrant by the court are not readily available at this time. It is our hope that Miss Lohan will surrender herself so that this matter will be resolved in a timely manner."
In August 2007, the troubled singer and actress pleaded guilty to two counts of being under the influence of cocaine and pleaded no contest to driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher and reckless driving.
She served 84 minutes in jail in November 2007 (see mug shots below), was placed on three years probation and placed in an 18-month alcohol education program.

On a side note, her deadbeat father, Michael Lohan, says he's worried for his daughter's well-being, telling Us Weekly, "I'm always worried about Lindsay as long as she's involved in relationships that are harmful to her."
Lohan calls his daughter's "toxic" girl-on-girl relationship with DJ Samantha Ronson a "powder keg... You never know when it's going to blow up."
If only he would blow up.
Mike had no comment on whether Lindsay Lohan was drinking or on drugs.
"I feel like when you're around the right people, you do the right thing," he said. "But when you're around the wrong people, you do the wrong thing. She'll deal with [the warrant] like she has to. She's not going to ignore it. Mark my words, as long as Samantha Ronson is in Lindsay's life, nothing is going to go right!"
