Lindsay Lohan says she's 'prepared to face the consequences' of failing 'my most recent drug test'

Lindsay Lohan's admission on her Twitter feed that she failed a drug test means another round of court hearings for the actress and a potential return to jail.

"Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result," she wrote.

She added a few minutes later: "This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I'm prepared to face the consequences."

Lohan spent part of the summer in an L.A. County jail in Lynwood after repeatedly violating the terms of her probation on a drunk-driving charge. She was released from a rehab center a few weeks ago.

Under the terms of her sentence, if she misses a test or gets a positive result, she would face 30 days in jail.

The sources, who spoke on the condition that they not be named because the case is ongoing, said no official determination has been made that she did take illicit drugs. But they said prosecutors and court officials were preparing for more Lohan court hearings.

Lohan continues to undergo intense therapy and counseling since her release from a UCLA rehab facility. She is on supervised probation in connection with her 2007 conviction for driving under the influence. She must take random drug tests twice a week.
