Lindsay Lohan arrives in court

Lindsay Lohan arrives in court

Lindsay Lohan arrives in court for a probation status hearing related to her 2007 drunk-driving case in Beverly Hills. She had been ordered to appear before Judge Marsha Revel to explain allegations that she has not completed the alcohol education classes stipulated under the terms of her probation.

And finally when the ‘Mean Girls’ star Lindsay Lohan made her court date on Monday, a judge ruled that she must wear an alcohol-monitoring ankle bracelet.

Lohan, 23, appeared on Monday before Judge Marsha Revel of Los Angeles County Superior Court for a hearing related to her 2007 arrests on drunken driving and drug abuse charges. The judge had ordered for Lohan’s arrest on Thursday because she did not appear for a previous probation hearing. However, the warrant was subsequently revoked when Lohan, who was attending the Cannes Film Festival, said her passport had been stolen, and also posted a $100,000 bail.

On Monday, Judge Revel set a probation violation hearing of July 6 for the actress. The judge also offered to read Lohan a list of reasons why she was being fitted with the ankle bracelet and ordered her to undergo drug testing and alcohol education.

In 2007 Lohan was sentenced to three-year probation after her second DUI conviction, and she was ordered to complete a set of alcohol education classes, which apparently she did not complete. There was a status hearing last week which she missed because, she claimed her father, Michael, had her passport stolen by someone while she was partying in Cannes that left her with no option but to stay in France. She is also reported to have slammed her father, who had encouraged her to enter rehab, "He clearly isn't sane."

Lohan could have faced 180 days in jail if she was found in violation of her probation, though she said she did not understand why, as she claimed to have been more than compliant with everything having to do with the court orders.

Also there were photos of her being circulated allegedly posing next to several lines of cocaine, about which Lohan explained fans pulled her into the room for a photo shoot and she was unaware of the surroundings, and went on to say that the pictures a were a ‘set up’. Lohan, along with her friends, were seen having a ‘white powder’ during an after-party in Cannes, France.
