But according to the people at SCRAM, Lindsay’s bracelet is foolproof-- and they say they have years of experience to back them up.

They explained how spilling a drink on SCRAM would set off the bracelet – but they would be able to detect that’s what happened. spoke exclusively to a spokesperson for SCRAM, who told us, “the bracelet could get an alert for alcohol spilling on the bracelet. However, SCRAM can easily tell the difference between exposure to alcohol around the bracelet and actual consumed alcohol that metabolizes through the skin.

“A spill or something else in the environment with alcohol (hairspray, lotions) would create a rapid spike much faster than the body would ever consume alcohol and would evaporate and burn off much faster than the body can metabolize alcohol.”

Lindsay previously told that she was “working to find proof that I did not tamper with the bracelet or drink. These accusations are false.”

While SCRAM officials say they can’t comment on a specific case, the spokesperson did say it has spent years testing its products and insists that in a situation like Lindsay’s, the bracelet knows the difference between consumed and spilled alcohol.

And has confirmed with other sources that the SCRAM report delivered to the judge indicated there was alcohol in Lindsay’s system.

“Our confirmation process includes an evaluation that ensures there is no chance that an alcohol alert is anything but consumed alcohol,” SCRAM’s spokesperson told “We’ve tested hundreds of products over the years to ensure that nothing can mimic the results of consumed alcohol—including this scenario.”
