A bench warrant has been issued for Lindsay Lohan’s arrest following a Los Angeles Supreme Court judge’s ruling the actress has violated the terms of her May bail.
Judge Marsha Revel, who insisted Lohan wear an alcohol monitoring ankle bracelet, ordered the actress’ attorney into court on Tuesday after learning the device started flashing during a night out.
Lohan sparked fears she had broken a court order banning her from drugs and alcohol after the booze bracelet began flashing at a star-studded event on Sunday.
The Mean Girls actress attended pop star Katy Perry’s MTV Movie Awards afterparty in Los Angeles and turned heads when the flashing beeper, which alerts authorities if she breaks her drinking ban, started to flash.
Lohan was ordered to wear the SCRAM bracelet last month, after missing probation hearings related to drug and drink-driving arrests.
Judge Marsha Revel was taking no chances when she ordered Los Angeles prosecutors and Lohan’s attorney Shawn Chapman Holley into court in Beverly Hills on Tuesday afternoon.
Following the emergency hearing, Revel ruled the alarm constitutes a violation of Lohan’s bail agreement
A new bail has been set at $200,000. A status hearing is still scheduled for 6 July.
It’s the second arrest warrant issued for Lohan in the past month – she tested Revel’s patience when she failed to show up in court for a scheduled hearing on 20 May, claiming her passport was stolen at the Cannes Film Festival and she was stranded in Europe.
That warrant was rescinded after an aide to the star put down $10,000 towards her $100,000 bail.
