Lindsay Lohan makes bail, freeing up media's Friday morning

May 20, 2010 |  6:15 pm

Lilo-cannes-web Alas, the Drama Llama will go without any supercharged celebrity fodder Friday morning.

Dreams of gossipy goodness (it's embarrassing, but we were imagining a waifish, shocked, sunglasses-wearing Lindsay Lohan slammed onto a preferably vintage cop car and cuffed as soon as she landed on Los Angeles soil) were dashed Thursday afternoon after her representatives made bail on her behalf, short-circuiting the bench warrant for her arrest issued earlier in the day.

The judge said at the time that LiLo could stay out of jail on bail until her court date --  as long as the actress avoids alcohol, wears a SCRAM bracelet and agrees to submit to random drug testing. So, yeah, cool. TMZ says Lohan and her lawyer are due in court at 8:30 a.m. Monday to set a date for the probation violation hearing.

As L.A. Now reports it, the judge had a notion that Lohan should have left just a leetle wiggle room to get home from France in time for court -- or perhaps should have skipped the Cannes jaunt entirely.

Now, if that's not crazy talk right there, who knows what is.

If by "crazy talk" you mean common sense, that is.
