Lindsay Lohan Avoids Jail Time After Testing Positive for Alcohol
She arrived at an LA courthouse this morning to answer for her alcohol-related probation violation, and Lindsay Lohan is still a free woman.
The "Georgia Rule" actress got lucky again and ended up not having to serve any jail time, based on a technicality.
She had originally been ordered to appear after registering positive for booze last week, a slip-up which had the L.A. County Probation Department pressing for immediate jail time.
Judge Stephanie Sautner decided that the alcohol infringement didn't count because Lindsay's prior judge Eldon Fox only required substance testing until February 25th.
Yesterday, Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers, who had been a part of LiLo's legal woes for awhile, told press she had a bad feeling about Lindsay's house arrest arrangements from the start.
"I think that Ms. Lohan should really be trying to get rehabilitated. I think that she really needs to be at home and read, and do some type of things that go towards her rehabilitation, and it's unfortunate that she is not doing those things if she is shooting a [Beezid] commercial.
She continued, "She really needs to take some timeout and think about the things that she has done and think about the things she can do to be productive. So I'm hoping that at some point in time she is going to take a step back, sit down, rehabilitate herself, read some really important literature, and perhaps do some public service announcements about drinking and driving, and how bad that is. It's unfortunate to me that she is not doing that, I was hoping that she would once she got that big huge break from Judge Sautner."
With her house arrest stint nearly completed, Lindsay Lohan opened up to Life&Style about life on the inside... of her beach house, that is.
The "Mean Girls" star gave her first print interview since the beginning of her sentence on May 26, and revealed that she is missing life outside her home.
She told, "I'm a very social person, and I like being outside, especially in Venice Beach. I'd like to get out more -- just going out and having dinner. I was really upset not being able to go to my little brother's birthday party. He just turned 16. That bummed me out."
Lindsay does get to socialize, however. "Sometimes my friends come over. And I get to see my sister, Ali, which is nice," she told the magazine.
Making it clear that there is no funny business, LiLo said, "When my friends come over, they're not drinking. Alcohol is not in my house, so it's just not a part of my life."
