Lindsay Lohan’s legal problems escalated Thursday when a warrant for her arrest was issued, and the prosecutor handling her case expressed a dim view of the actress’ actions in an exclusive interview with

Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers told exclusively after the court hearing: “Judge Revel went above and beyond to tell  her to appear today. Miss Lohan should have been at the airport with her passport. She knew she had to be here and she wasn’t.

“It appears she is thumbing her nose at the court.”

The judge revoked Lindsay probation, set bail at $100,000, ordered random drug testing to take place at least weekly, also ordered her to wear a SCRAM bracelet and not consume alcohol.

It’s clear that both the judge and the prosecutor are not in the mood for excuses from the actress who was ordered to appear in court Thursday, but went to Cannes and then claimed her passport was stolen.

Meyers told exclusively: “Judge Revel clearly had the authority and was reasonable in issuing random drug testing, wearing the SCRAM bracelet, no alcohol consumption and the $100,000 bail was not excessive given the circumstances.

“If this was anybody else, celebrity or not, this is what would have happened to them.”

As reported exclusively, Lindsay sent a desperate email to friends and acquaintances trying to score a private plane for a ride back to the U.S.

So what’s next for Lindsay? Her people say she’s heading back to LA.

Steve Whitmore of the LA County Sherriff’s Department says that Lohan could be arrested as she enters the country. He bench warrant was not held and is active.

Meyers told that if Lindsay knows what’s good for her, she’ll head home. “I hope she will come back,” the prosecutor told exclusively. “I think she will come back to face the music.

“If she ever wants to work again she’s clearly going to have to come back.”
