Lindsay Lohan may have lost another movie role thanks to her extended stay at the Cannes Film Festival in France – a judge has forbidden the actress from leaving Los Angeles.
Lohan appeared before Judge Marsha Revel on Monday morning – five days after she failed to appear at a mandatory hearing – and was ordered to refrain from drinking or doing drugs for the foreseeable future.
The judge, who initially issued a warrant for the star’s arrest last Thursday after she failed to show up, told Lohan she could remain free on bail, but she must wear a SCRAM device on her ankle and submit to random drug tests.
Judge Revel also insisted the actress must attend weekly alcohol education classes.
The lawmaker ruled that Lohan risked jail if she failed to comply with any of the stipulations of her bail.
Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, pointed out that the restrictions would prevent Lohan from travelling to Texas for a movie, but the judge was unsympathetic.
The actress angered Judge Revel when she failed to show in court last week, claiming her passport had been stolen at the Cannes Film Festival and she was unable to get back to Los Angeles in time. She flew in on Sunday (23May10).
In a pre-hearing interview with Hollywood.tv, Lohan insisted she didn’t deserve jail time or a rehab stint.
She said, “I don’t see what reason I would go to prison for. I’ve been more than compliant with everything having to do with the court system.”
The actress failed to complete a prior court-ordered alcohol education course.
