Lindsay Lohan is a young lady who is immune to wake up calls. Arrests, rehab, alienation from her friends, family and Hollywood movie studios…nothing seems to get Lindsay to clean up her act.
Now that a warrant is out for Lindsay’s arrest, for failing to return from the Cannes Film Festival to Los Angeles for a mandatory court hearing, maybe Linds will have to spend some time in the slammer. Serious time. And maybe that is exactly what she needs.
Lindsay claims she was unable to make it back from the South of France because she lost her passport while attending the Film Festival there.
According to TMZ Lindsay claimed that someone stole her passport in Cannes, and she was denied when attempting to board her flight back to Los Angeles Tuesday. She said she intended to meet with the US Embassy Thursday morning to receive a new passport.
However, RadarOnline reports that Lohan never applied to get a new passport.
Judge Marsha Revel has put Lindsay’s bail at $100,000 and laid out conditions that the actress must follow if she wants to stay out of jail.
After posting bail, Lindsay will have to wear an alcohol monitoring bracelet, called a SCRAM, and undergo random drug testing once a week. She’ll also be barred from drinking alcohol until a formal probation hearing. If Lindsay doesn’t comply she could end up in jail for 180 days.
But if Lindsay keeps blowing off the judge, there is no reason that Revel will show her any mercy. And maybe at this point mercy isn’t what Lindsay needs. What she needs is a “Don’t Get Out Of Jail Free” card.
Lindsay has gotten plenty of passes for her bad behavior. Lindsay is currently on probation for two drunk driving arrests from 2007. On August 23, 2007, Lohan pleaded guilty to cocaine use and driving under the influence and was sentenced to one day imprisonment. She served only 84 minutes of jail time. Lindsay has been so difficult during her probation period that last year it was extended for another year.
She has attended rehab three times, but seems to have lapsed back into her old behavior, staying out late, falling down at parties and throwing drinks at people.
Since dealing with Lindsay with a soft hand hasn’t changed her behavior jail time could be the only thing left to save this talented young actress’ career and her life.
