Laurence Fishburne’s daughter is asking a judge to rescind her arrest warrant, insisting she has been clean from drugs for months.
Police officers were instructed to arrest Montana Fishburne on sight after the magistrate overseeing her case in Florida accused the 27 year old of violating a probationorder by blowing off a drug test and leaving town.
Montana is said to have left Florida without court approval on 23 August in order to visit family members in New York, in addition to failing to submit a random blood and urine test last month.
In response to the arrest warrant, her attorney has filed a motion on Wednesday asking for the jail order to be voided before she surrenders to the court, according to The Blast. The lawyer claims Montana thought she informed the judge she would be traveling frequently to New York, where her mother lives. She went on to insist she wasn’t trying to “avoid supervision” and believed she was able to travel without approval.
Montana’s lawyer also claims she is still taking part in an outpatient treatment program and regularly tests negative for drugs. She is requesting for the judge to rule she did not violate her probation.
Montana was arrested last year after allegedly crashing her car in Florida. Police found an open bottle of wine in her Toyota Corolla and discovered she was well over the legal booze limit to drive following two breathalyzer tests. She was hit with four charges relating to driving under the influence (DUI).
As part of a subsequent plea deal, Fishburne agreed to serve 12 months probation and attend Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) meetings. She was also prohibited from drinking and taking any drugs and ordered to complete 50 hours of community service.
