$200K Warrant Issued For Arrest of Lindsay Lohan

June 9th, 2010 by

LOS ANGELES — Lindsay Lohan had alcohol in her system according to the SCRAM report reviewed by L.A. Superior Court judge, a celebrity website is reporting.

The information about Lohan’s alcohol use was contained in a report prepared by SCRAM executives and given to Judge Marsha Revel before an unscheduled hearing about Lohan on Tuesday.

Judge Revel met with Lindsay’s lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley and deputy district attorney Danette Meyers in chambers before issuing a bench warrant for Lohan, forfeiting her existing bail and setting new bail.

That new bail has been set at $200,000.

The moves comes after Lohan’s alcohol ankle monitor reportedly went off Sunday night after her appearance at the MTV Movie Awards.

There are 5 violations, according to the judge.

Sources say the SCRAM data shows evidence of alcohol. The monitoring company says the device did not malfunction.

The bracelet checks for traces of alcohol in the air above the user’s skin. Any effort to tamper with the 10-ounce device immediately sends out an alert. The monitoring company reports to the Los Angeles County Probation Department and the Superior Court judge in Beverly Hills who is hearing Lohan’s case.

Judge Marsha Revel ordered Lohan to wear the bracelet following a May 24th hearing and told her not to consume alcohol. If Revel determines a violation has occurred, she could order the immediate revocation of the actress’ bail and send Lohan to jail.

The actress has been on probation since August 2007 after pleading guilty to misdemeanor drug charges and no contest to three driving charges.

Lohan sent out several “tweets” on her Twitter page Tuesday calling the whole thing a “misunderstanding.”
