On Thursday morning an arrest warrant was issued against Lindsay Lohan because she failed to appear in the court as she could get a flight back to the US. The reasons are well, just a whole lot of drama. From volcanic ashes to passport lost. But the Judge didn’t buy any of her lame excuses and issued her an arrest warrant. She was all set to get arrested the second she landed on the US soil.
Looks like her Lawyer managed to fix things for her after a struggle. The arrest warrent was withdrawn after a representative for the actress-singer posted her $100,000 bond, a Los Angeles Sheriff’s spokesman said.
Lohan missed the hearing because her passport was lost while in France, attorney Shawn Chapman Holley said.
It was not immediately clear if Lohan is required to attend Monday’s hearing at the Beverly Hills, California, courthouse, Whitemore said.
Holley said Lohan was issued a temporary passport by the U.S. Embassy in Paris, France, on Thursday and will fly back to the United States as soon as possible.
Revel ruled there was “probable cause to believe (Lohan) is in violation of probation” from a 2007 drunk driving conviction.
“I warned her before,” the judge said. “She knew it was very serious.”
After the hearing, Holley suggested the judge was being tougher on Lohan because of her celebrity.
“She’s got an excellent progress report from the alcohol program,” the attorney said. “She’s done 10 of the 13 classes that she was ordered to do, so you might say that’s not a stellar performance but the fact is it’s along the lines of most people in the alcohol program.”
The judge told Lohan last fall that although she wanted Lohan to have her career, the actress could not “thumb your nose” at the court.
