Judge: Lindsay Lohan violated terms of her bail

(AP) - A judge on Tuesday doubled Lindsay Lohan's bail to $200,000 after finding the actress violated the terms of her release with an adverse report by an alcohol anklemonitor.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel determined Lohanwas in violation after a closed-door meeting with the actress'attorney and a prosecutor. Revel did not detail the violation, butsaid her decision was made after receiving "results" issued by acourt-ordered alcohol monitor.

District Attorney's spokeswoman Shiara Davila-Morales said itwas an "alcohol-related violation," but did not have furtherdetails.

A source familiar with Lohan's case told The Associated Pressthat the violation was reported after the "Mean Girls" starappeared at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night.

Lohan was not present in court Tuesday, but several denials ofwrongdoing were posted on the actress' Twitter account shortlybefore and after the hastily called hearing.

Lohan's $200,000 bail was posted less than two hours after thehearing, a move that quashed a bench warrant issued for theactress' arrest by the judge.

Lohan's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, did not speak toreporters after the hearing.

Lohan has been required to wear the device since May, when shemissed a court hearing. Lohan is due back in court on July 6, whenRevel will decide whether Lohan has violated her probation.

Lohan, 23, is facing jail time if the judge determines she hasfailed to comply with the terms of her probation.

The actress has been on probation since August 2007 afterpleading guilty to misdemeanor drug charges and no contest to threedriving charges.
