Lindsay Lohan will face the consequences of violating the terms of her probation in a 2007 DUI case starting today (Thursday, May 26), by staying at home, and, if she likes, hosting guests and even drinking!
Early this morning, Lindsay surrendered at the Lynwood Correctional Facility to begin a 35-day house arrest at her $7,100 a month rented Venice home.
Under the terms of her house arrest, Lindsay cannot step out of her home. If she does, an ankle bracelet that she is required to wear 24/7 will trigger an alarm through her phone and alert the Sheriff's department
Lindsay can, however, receive visitors. She is currently not undergoing random testing for alcohol and drugs, so she could even party at home.
Steve Whitmore, spokesperson with Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, said in a statement:
"Miss Lohan came over for a booking this morning around 5am where it was determined that she was eligible for her ankle monitor. The Los Angeles County Probation Department recommended that she was eligible for her to do 35 days of home detention also. She will be paying for this out of her own pocket. Miss Lohan arrived in a black SUV this morning with her attorney and she was co-operative and professional. She left after about an hour and she currently has her ankle monitor."
Now you might think these are pretty mild consequences for violating the law repeatedly but what you need to remember is Lindsay is quite capable of violating even these terms.
