U.S Customs and Border Patrol officers are likely to meet actress Lindsay Lohan at the airport as soon as she lands on American soil tomorrow-an arrest warrant has been issued for the actress and bail set at $100,000 after Lohan's missed a Court Hearing.
Court Judge Marsha Revel says, "There is no valid excuse for Lohan not being here, If she wanted to be here, she could've been here. She could've come two days early from Cannes. She has a history of not keeping scheduled appointments." Revel ordered an arrest warrant for Lohan and set bail at $100,000.
It is unclear whether police or Border Patrol will arrest Lohan asLo she arrives in Los Angeles on an incoming flight. "It's a possibility [Lohan could be arrested upon entry to the United States]. If a person is recognized by law enforcement as having an outstanding warrant, that person is subject to immediate arrest," L.A. sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said. According to Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, "Ms. Lohan's passport was stolen at the Cannes Film Festival this week. She [Lohan] filed a Police Report. She intended to fly back [to the United States, from France] at the earliest possible time. I don't know what else to tell you. She had reservations for a flight.”
Police state there is no record of a stolen passport report being filed with legal authorities. French police say Lindsay Lohan never reported her passport missing, despite her lawyer's claims Thursday that she notified proper authorities when the document disappeared. Police in Cannes, France, say they have no record of any police report filed by Lohan about a lost passport. Lohan's attorney claims the actress reported the passport missing, shortly after it disappeared Tuesday.
Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel issued a bench warrant for Lindsay Lohan’s arrest after the star failed to attend her mandatory court appearance Thursday due to the lost passport. The Judge ordered bail set at $100,000 and said Lohan would have the option to post bail and remain free until the next court hearing. Judge Revel said she has reason to believe that Lohan has a drug and alcohol problem and that the stolen passport claim was merely an excuse for missing the scheduled Court appearance. The Judge has issued an arrest warrant for Lindsay Lohan after the star failed to attend a mandatory hearing in Los Angeles. According to the actress' lawyer, Lohan was unable to appear in court because she has been stuck in France since her passport was stolen.
The actress has been out of the country, attending the Cannes Film Festival in France, but according to The Associated Press, Lohan's lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley said the actress is due back in the U.S. on Friday evening, May 21. Los Angeles' ABC 7 reported that Lohan is scheduled to go to the U.S. Embassy in France on Thursday (May 20) to get a new passport issued. Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel, however, shows no sympathy for actress Lohan. "If she wanted to be here, it looks to the court that she could have been here," Judge Revel said, states the AP.
In addition to revoking Lohan's probation, the Judge barred the actress from consuming alcohol and also required her to submit to weekly random Drug Testing. Lohan will also be required to wear an alcohol-monitoring bracelet. Lindsay Lohan pleaded guilty to the Los Angeles Courts in 2007 to two Misdemeanor Drug charges and No Contest to two counts of driving with a blood-alcohol level above 0.08 percent and an additional count of Reckless Driving. The star's probation was extended for an additional year in October after Lohan experienced difficulty adhering to the terms of her probation.
According to ABC 7, Michael Lohan's attorney Lisa Bloom spoke to reporters at the courthouse about her client's daughter's current situation. "There could be a private agreement between the parties," said Bloom. "Somebody does have to want to go to rehab, and we hope that Lindsay [Lohan] will get to that point." Despite Lohan's notoriously public professional and personal struggles, Revel said earlier this year that the star actress was making "good progress." On Monday, actress Lohan denied reports that she has failed to complete the mandatory number of alcohol-education classes, saying in a online video that she has "been in compliance more than ever."
