Judge: Lohan Violated Alcohol Monitor, Doubles Bail Amount
A judge determined that Lindsay Lohan violated terms of her release from the results of a court-ordered alcohol monitor and doubled the actress' bail to $200,000.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel did not reveal the exact details of the alcohol related violation, the Associated Press reports.
As previously discussed, Lohan appeared at the MTV awards recently when the alcohol monitoring bracelet alarm went off, alerting the device maker monitoring company.
Lohan posted $200,000 bail, nullifying a bench warrant issued for her arrest and denied any wrongdoing of her alcohol monitor device on her Twitter account posts.
But in statement, Lohan's lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley, said that the device indicated the "presence of a small amount of alcohol" after she attended the MTV Awards.
Lohan's bail originally was set at $100,000 and she was ordered to wear the alcohol monitoring bracelet after she missed a mandatory hearing, claiming her passport had been stolen while she was in Frances at the Cannes Film Festival, as previously discussed.
Lohan is scheduled to appear in court on July 6, when the judge will decide whether she has violated her probation.
As previously discussed, Lohan had been on probation since 2007, after pleading guilty to misdemeanor counts of being under the influence of cocaine; no contest to two counts of driving with a blood-alcohol level above 0.08 percent and one count of reckless driving.
Lohan's bail conditions include random weekly drug testing. She also must attend all of her alcohol classes as scheduled.
