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.
