Lindsay Lohan won't be arrested when she returns to L.A. from Cannes Film Festival

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/.a/6a00d8341c630a53ef01310f2bac79970c-300wiActress Lindsay Lohan won't be arrested when she returns to the United States, despite an arrest warrant issued Thursday by a Beverly Hills judge.

Steve Whitmore, a Sheriff's Department spokesman, said Lohan's representatives have posted 10% of the $100,000 bond, and so the arrest warrant was recalled.

"She will not be arrested when she comes back into United States," Whitmore said.

On Thursday, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel slammed Lohan for failing to appear in court.

"Actions speak louder than words. I’ve heard the best words in the world, but the actions are far more important," Revel said. "She has a history of not keeping scheduled appointments.... I couldn’t have been more clear about the priority of this case and getting things done."

Revel issued the warrant for Lohan after she failed to appear because she is still in France. Lohan, through her attorney, claimed to be stuck in Cannes after her passport was stolen and skipped the mandatory appearance for a probation hearing for a 2007 intoxication conviction.

Revel said Lohan should have either skipped the Cannes trip or made sure she was back in L.A. two days before the hearing.

If I ever get in trouble, I want Lindsay's judge.

Big surprise she didn't show up....LOL, she's a celeb...money talks.

Revel was correct- No Cannes or back in time. Simple concept. However, Lohan has a history of bad behavior and poor choices. Lohan has not been speaking to her father since he purportedly stormed into her home to check on she and her 16 y.o. sister. Her mother and father may not see eye-to-eye but what parents would leave a 16 y.o. where Lindsay would be considered the 'responsible adult'? This is a dysfunctional family and as a result this young woman has gone off the rails. Its a shame that she is now too old for anyone to be able to step in and save her. She has wealth, fame, youth and talent. Its tragic that she seems focused on throwing it all away and so sad that her parents are only concerned with being separated from her money.

She's going to jail for sure....
And it would be the best possible thing for her.
It worked for for Paris Hilton!

Really? Her passport was stolen? Sure. When was the last time Lindsay Lohan had postive media attention? She needs to visit the graves of the late River Phoenix, Heath Ledger & Cory Haim, just to name a few, maybe she would have a moment of revelation, then again, maybe not at this point. What a waste of talent.
