Lindsay Lohan probation revoked

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A Los Angeles judge revoked Lindsay Lohan's probation Wednesday and scheduled a probation violation hearing that could result in more jail time for the closely watched "Liz and Dick" star.

The 26-year-old actress faces three counts of reckless driving, lying to a police officer and obstructing an officer from performing duties after an accident in which Lohan's Porsche slammed into the back of a dump truck in June. Authorities in Santa Monica, Calif., allege Lohan lied about being behind the wheel before the accident and the charges could prompt a probation violation in her 2011 necklace theft case.

Lohan did not appear in court Wednesday. She was represented by her attorney, Shawn Holley. California defendants facing misdemeanors can avoid appearing in court if they are represented by an attorney, unless a judge orders otherwise.

The new case could prompt a judge to sentence Lohan to jail for violating her probation for taking a $2,500 necklace from a store without permission in 2011. The jewelry was later returned, but it sparked months of court hearings and morgue cleanup duty for the star, who has struggled personally and professionally since being arrested twice in 2007 for driving under the influence.

A probation violation in the necklace case could result in Lohan being sentenced to 245 days in jail after the Santa Monica case is resolved. Her probation violation hearing is set for Jan. 15.

 

Lohan was on her way to the set of the Lifetime biopic "Liz and Dick" on Pacific Coast Highway before the June accident, which sent her to the hospital briefly. She returned to the set later in the day, but police determined she had lied about her assistant driving her Porsche at the time.

 

After being removed from supervised probation in March, Lohan attempted to mount a comeback, filming two movies and a cameo with Charlie Sheen in the latest installment of the "Scary Movie" franchise. Her performance in the first film released, "Liz and Dick," wasn't greeted favorably by fans or critics.

 

Lohan was ordered to remain out of trouble and a judge urged her to stop partying at nightclubs, but neither has happened.

 

She also faces a misdemeanor assault charge in New York after a woman claimed she was hit by Lohan in a Manhattan nightclub. It is unknown whether New York prosecutors will pursue charges, or drop them as they did earlier this year when Lohan was accused of hitting a man with her car.
