Judge orders Lohan back to court

2011-06-23 09:18

American actress and pop singer Lindsay Lohan, currently serving a home detention sentence, was ordered yesterday back to court on an allegation she violated her probation in a drunken driving case, a court official said.

The 24-year-old – who is confined to her home on a separate sentence for stealing a necklace earlier this year – is due in court this morning in Los Angeles, said Sandi Gibbons, spokesperson for the LA District Attorney’s Office.

Gibbons said she did not know how Lohan allegedly violated her probation.

But entertainment website Radar Online cited unnamed sources as saying Lohan tested positive for alcohol, which would violate her probation in the drunken driving case.

Lohan has been dogged by the 2007 drunk driving case for years and has served several stints in rehab and in jail for violating her probation.

Last year a judge ordered her to court for missing alcohol education classes, and she later went to a rehab centre in southern California.

She was released from the facility in January and then landed in trouble, yet again, for stealing a necklace from a Los Angeles-area jewellery store.

Lohan was once considered one of Hollywood’s most promising actress, but her career has fallen on hard times due to her personal and legal troubles.
