Court orders LiLo to keep away from drugs and booze

Ahead of Monday’s hearing, Lohan said she just cannot understand why she should fear further jail time or a stint in rehab, considering she had complied with the court's orders

Lindsay Lohan has been ordered to undergo random drug testing and abstain from taking alcohol, in addition to wearing an alcohol-monitoring bracelet. A Beverly Hills judge found the actress in violation of her probation, and has scheduled another hearing in July to determine further sanctions.

"Failure to show at a random test is like a dirty test to the court," said Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel, while LiLo quietly sat through the 15-minute hearing, looking blue.

LiLo claims to have complied with court orders
In an interview before the hearing, Lindsay Lohan said she fails to understand what could get her behind the bars now. The troubled actress claimed to have complied with orders of the court and could not think of anything she did against the law.

"I don't see what reason I would go to prison for," LiLo told HollywoodTV. "I've been more than compliant with everything having to do with the court system."

LiLo’s trouble with the law
Following two arrests in 2007, Lohan was sentenced to 3 years probation and was ordered to take alcohol-education classes. The actress was due in court last week for a progress report. She missed the hearing, and also her mandatory alcohol-education lesson, as she could not fly back from Cannes, where she was promoting the movie Inferno.

Lohan, 23, was apparently stuck in Cannes after her passport got stolen there. The actress avoided arrest by posting $100,000 bail, but she faced the other conditions imposed by the judge.

Lilo’s claims at innocence
However, LiLo insists she did her best to abide by the orders of the court, and claimed to have a genuine reason for skipping the hearing. "I had no option but to stay there. I immediately was trying to find ways out," she says.

I've been in compliance with everything that occurs when you're in the court system for two DUIs – Lindsay Lohan

Though she was pictured in a room with several lines of cocaine nearby, Lohan says she was completely oblivious of the surroundings. She explains that she was pulled in to get clicked with some fans and “wouldn't know what was in the room.”

She thinks, it was some kind of a “set up” against her.

Why should she go to rehab or jail?
Ahead of Monday’s hearing, Lohan said she just cannot understand why she should fear further jail time or a stint in rehab.

"I don't see why I would even have to do that considering I've been in compliance with everything that occurs when you're in the court system for two DUIs," she said.

Also, for anything that goes wrong in her life, Lindsay has only one person to blame – her father. After suggesting that Michael Lohan was responsible for her stolen passport, the actress goes on to say that he is the only one, who’s now looking for her to end up in rehab or jail.

He "clearly isn't sane," Lindsay Lohan said of her estranged father.
