LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Los Angeles judge revoked Lindsay Lohan's probation Wednesday and scheduled a probation violation hearing that could result in more jail time for the closely watched "Liz and Dick" star.
The 26-year-old actress faces three counts of reckless driving, lying to a police officer and obstructing an officer from performing duties after an accident in which Lohan's Porsche slammed into the back of a dump truck in June. Authorities in Santa Monica, Calif., allege Lohan lied about being behind the wheel before the accident, and the charges could prompt a probation violation in her 2011 necklace theft case.
Lohan did not appear in court Wednesday. She was represented by her attorney, Shawn Holley. California defendants facing misdemeanors can avoid appearing in court if they are represented by an attorney, unless a judge orders otherwise.
The new case could prompt a judge to sentence Lohan to jail for violating her probation for taking a $2,500 necklace from a store in 2011. The jewelry was later returned, but it sparked months of court hearings and morgue cleanup duty for the star, who has struggled personally and professionally since being arrested twice in 2007 for driving under the influence.
