Lohan facing prison return
Los Angeles prosecutors have asked a judge to revoke Lindsay Lohan’s probation and schedule a hearing that could lead to the actress’s return to jail.
The filing came a day before Lohan is scheduled to be arraigned on three charges filed last month related to a June car crash.
Lohan will not need to be present for the arraignment on charges that she lied to Santa Monica police, was driving recklessly and obstructed an officer from performing duties related to the crash investigation.
She remains on probation for a necklace theft case from last year and could be sentenced to 245 days in jail if a judge determines her conduct was a probation violation.
City attorney’s spokesman Frank Mateljan said any probation violation proceedings are likely to be heard after the Santa Monica case. Prosecutors allege Lohan lied about being a passenger in her Porsche when it crashed on the Pacific Coast Highway on the way to a film shoot.
The Liz And Dick star was released from supervised probation in March after completing several months of court appearances and morgue clean-up duty.
Lohan has yet to be booked on the new charges and a judge is likely to set bail and the terms of her release.
