LOS ANGELES (AP) - A judge revoked Lindsay Lohan's probation on
Wednesday and scheduled a hearing that could result in more jail time
for the closely watched "Liz and Dick" star.
The ruling in Los Angeles came as the 26-year-old actress - who did
not appear in court - faces misdemeanor counts of reckless driving,
lying to a police officer and obstructing an officer from performing
duties after an accident in which her Porsche slammed into the back of a
dump truck in June.
Lohan told police in Santa Monica that her assistant was driving, but
detectives now believe the actress was behind the wheel as she headed
to a movie set.
Lohan was on probation at the time after previously being convicted of the misdemeanor theft of a necklace.
A probation violation hearing was set for Jan. 15. A judge could
sentence the actress up to 245 days in jail after the Santa Monica case
Lohan was not required to appear in court Wednesday. She was
represented by her attorney, Shawn Holley, who did not immediately
return an email message seeking comment after the hearing.
Lohan also faces a misdemeanor assault charge in New York after a woman claimed she was hit by the actress at a nightclub.
The jewelry case 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.
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.
