After a court appearance where the judge made it clear to everyone that she is not tolerating any excuses in the Lindsay Lohan probation violation case, the actress was fitted with an alcohol-monitoring bracelet before leaving the court house, RadarOnline.com learned exclusively.
When the parties were done in court, and Judge Marsha Revel rejected all attempts by Lindsay to travel out of state to Texas because it would interfere with the SCRAM bracelet, the attorneys from both sides and Lohan went to the judge’s chambers.
RadarOnline.com learned from sources close to the situation that officials from the SCRAM bracelet company were summoned to the courthouse to fit Lohan for the bracelet.
Lohan left the courthouse at 10:50am PDT wearing the monitoring device, RadarOnline.com learned.
“The first SCRAM bracelet has been installed and when she left here it was on her,” said court spokesman Alan Parachini, who explained the SCRAM “senses through the skin when the person wearing it is drinking”.
Parachini also confirmed Lohan has been ordered to her first meeting with the probation department on Thursday this week.
In the tense court hearing, Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers also requested Lohan prove she had purchased an airline ticket from Cannes to the U.S. Lohan missed her scheduled Thursday hearing, claiming her passport was stolen. Holley said she would present the court with a May 19 plane ticket Lohan purchased with the intent to come home.
Lohan — wearing a black suit, white shirt and dark sunglasses — arrived in an SUV, and walked into the courthouse at 8:38 am PT, accompanied by her high-powered attorney. (She was due at 8:30 am.)
Holley informed the court Lohan was not late, saying, “We were downstairs at the appropriate time … there was an issue with security.”
In a video interview Sunday, a teary Lohan insisted she was in compliance with everything the court has ordered, saying: “I have always taken responsibility for my actions. Always … I’ve been more than in compliance with everything having to do with the court system.”
The May 20 no-show was not in compliance, which caused Revel to issue a bench warrant when Lohan failed to appear in court for a status. (The warrant was rescinded when bond was posted on Lohan’s $100,000 bail.)
The Mean Girls star claimed to have been stuck in France because her passport was stolen while she was promoting her latest role at the Cannes Film Festival. Lohan, 23, sent a e-mail last week to her family and friends in a desperate attempt to procure a private jet for a quick ride ride home, saying she was trapped in the French film hub after her passport was stolen.
“I would never ask such a thing, but if there’s anything that I could ever ask of anyone, it would be to help me with this,” Lohan wrote in the e-mail obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.com. “I must get back on a jet to LA tomorrow. If anyone has planes leaving Nice/Cannes at any time after 11 am when I get my passport, please, please, let me know if you can help me. God bless All my love.”
But the judge took a skeptical view of the no-show, and shot down Lindsay’s lawyers arguments with a simple, “Actions speak louder than words.”
Lohan’s mother Dina later admitted, in a live audio exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, that her daughter was advised not to return to the U.S. while a warrant was out for her arrest.
“We did what we had to do to protect her,” Dina told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
Lohan was ordered to appear again in court on July 6; the actress, her mother and her attorney remained in the courtroom reviewing the details for at least 45 minutes following the hearing, RadarOnline.com has learned.
