Lindsay Lohan's probation could be revoked at hearing

December 12, 2012 |  8:20 am

An arraignment is scheduled Wednesday for actress Lindsay Lohan, who is charged with three misdemeanor counts accusing her of lying to Santa Monica police about whether she was driving a Porsche that collided with a dump truck on Pacific Coast Highway.

Lohan could find herself in serious legal trouble if a Los Angeles County Superior Court commissioner decides to revoke the probation the 26-year-old actress is serving after pleading no-contest to misdemeanor grand theft stemming from stealing a necklace last year from a Venice jewelry store.

L.A. city prosecutors said Tuesday they will seek to revoke Lohan's probation after she was charged by Santa Monica authorities in connection with the accident in June. The move means Lohan could be back in jail as the judge in her case has repeatedly threatened if the actress committed another crime.

Lohan was charged this month with three misdemeanors for allegedly lying to Santa Monica police in connection with the PCH accident. The charges came after the "Mean Girls" actress was arrested in New York on suspicion of third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, after she allegedly punched a woman in the face at Club Avenue in Manhattan’s fashionable Meatpacking district.

Santa Monica police Sgt. Richard Lewis told The Times this month that the department's investigation had determined Lohan was driving the Porsche, contradicting statements the actress made to law enforcement officers after the crash.
