Judge issues warrant for Lindsay Lohan's arrest

Lindsay Lohan, victim of a Cannes passport thief, reportedly has a brand new passport and plans to be back in L.A. by Friday evening.

Apparently that's not good enough for the California judge who expected Lohan in court today for a mandatory probation progress report. Judge Marsha Revel issued a bench warrant for Lohan's arrest and set bail at $100,000. Revel added that Lilo can remain at large until a rescheduled court hearing as long as she agrees to drink no alcohol, wear a SCRAM alcohol monitoring bracelet and submit to random drug testing at least once a week.

We hope Cannes was worth it.

Hey, JVMfan, do you have to post that same lame comment on EVERY article on this site, or will this be your third and last time?

Where's luvlindsey? She must be devastated . . . Does Lohan even HAVE $100,000? Has Dominic Cooper checked to make sure his wallet's still in his pocket?

The Judge know the girl can't come back but she still put out a bench warrant.
Just abuse of her position.

I would hardly call it an abuse of power for a judge to expect a defendant to prioritize a mandatory court date over partying on the Riviera. Lindsey Lohan's decisions are what got her into legal trouble to begin with, just like it was her decision to go to France just a few days before a court appearance in which she's supposedly trying to convince the judge that she's responsible and committed to staying out of trouble. If that decision meant she couldn't appear in court, whatever the specific reason, she has to pay the consequences.

I really hope the courts are going to stop enabling this addict. It's time she quit thumbing her nose at authority and come clean. It's time to pay the piper. I'm getting a bit sick of hearing about this loser.

Part of me doesn't even believe her passport was stolen - probably just an excuse to stay longer and hook up with that Dominic guy.

The French police are saying she never applied for a new passport even though she said she did publicly. Sounds like the judge is doing the right thing. She was warned before leaving the country that she might miss her hearing because of the ash cloud, but she went anyway.

I'm sick and tired of all these celebrities getting preferential treatment.

Good for the judge. Someone in the legal profession with a backbone to stand up for the system and against the elitists.

Lindsay Lohan is a no, good punk. She needs to spend a long time in jail to think about her actions and the consequences.

She obviously has not learned. Like most elitists and celebrities, she believes she is above the law based on her social status.

Its about time that a nation run by the rule of law starts applying the laws equally across the board rather than being selective in its nature.

Again, two thumbs up for the judge.

Oh...if her Dad was my father; he would be six feet under.

What's with the "Lilo"? Are you too lazy to say her entire name? Trying to create a new nickname for her?

It's dumb either way.

If I were her, I'd stay in France and leave the Prison States of America behind for good.

We Americans put more people in jail than any other country in the world. Some deserve it, but jeesh: more than 1% of our population is now behind bars, and we think that's NORMAL (hint: in Europe and the rest of the free world, their per-capita imprisonment rates are about one-tenth of America's).

Not that I particularly care about this case, but two things come immediately to mind. When you are on probation, you generally have to seek permission to leave the country. Did she - with a court date coming up? Secondly, a "stolen" passport? C'mon. More like she lost it accidentally on purpose. Not very smart.

Usually a condition of bail or probation is you cannot leave the country. Especially to a country like France who has a long history of harboring fugitives from the US.
