Lindsay Lohan given more time to complete treatment program

Lindsay Lohan

A Beverly Hills judge today extended Lindsay Lohan's probation for a year in connection with a 2007 drunk-driving case.

The judge made the decision to extend probation after learning that Lohan had not completed required treatment programs because she was filming a movie out of state. Lohan's attorney said the filming is done and that she can finish the programs.

The court appearance stems from a 2007 incident in which she crashed her car on Sunset Boulevard in Beverly Hills and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

She eventually agreed to a plea bargain that called for probation, time in a treatment program and community service.
