Lindsay Lohan: Judge revokes probation
LOS ANGELES -- A Los Angeles judge has revoked Lindsay Lohan's probation and scheduled a violation hearing that could result in more jail time for the 26-year-old "Liz and Dick" star.
The hearing is set for Jan. 15.
The actress faces three counts of reckless driving, lying to a police officer and obstructing an officer from performing duties after an accident in which Lohan's Porsche slammed into the back of a dump truck in June.
Authorities allege Lohan lied about being behind the wheel before the accident and the charges could prompt a probation violation in her 2011 necklace theft case.
Lohan, 26, was on her way to the set of the Lifetime biopic "Liz and Dick" on Pacific Coast Highway before the June accident, which sent her to the hospital briefly. She returned to the set later in the day, but police determined she had lied about her assistant driving her Porsche at the time.
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.
The new case could prompt a judge to sentence Lohan to jail for violating her probation for taking a $2,500 necklace from a store without permission in 2011. The jewelry was later returned, but it sparked months of court hearings and morgue cleanup duty for the star.
