With Lindsay Lohan barred from any alcohol or drug use until her next court hearing July 6, we got to thinking: Can she defeat the dreaded ankle monitor?
Either by going cold turkey, or by fooling it in some way? If anyone is up to the challenge, it’s LiLo, who has rocked such a bracelet before, back in 2007.
During that stint, she posed with it in a bikini … presumably while sober. But who knows. Can Lohan’s SCRAM bracelet be tricked so she can still party?
The device, which measures alcohol intake via an individual’s sweat, seems impossible to beat. Sensors record any attempt to remove or tamper with it.
The New York Daily News, however, suggests that by sticking one’s foot in a tub of ice water, and thus not sweating, one could avoid any positive reading.
So … put the keg in the tub and let’s party!
SCRAM-ED: Have Lindsay Lohan’s partying days been collared?
The newspaper also said that people can try sticking “cold cuts between the unit’s sensor and the wearer, creating a skin-like barrier that doesn’t sweat.”
Seriously. There have been entire articles written on this subject, so you know Linds is going to be well-versed in any loopholes or trickery she can employ.
Some lawyers and addiction counselors refute that you can “trick” the bracelet, though saying it’s nearly impossible. What about simply … not drinking?
This could be a tall order for Lindsay. First of all, she’s going to be so bored. More significantly, the girl has cravings and needs to be satisfied. Fast. Hard.
Her motivation to stay clean is strong, however. If that SCRAM device indicates she’s violating the rules, she could end up in jail by the end of the day.
Who do you think will prevail?
