Warrant issued for Lindsay Lohan's arrest

We've been sparing you the dull and gory details of Lindsay Lohan's troubles in Cannes this past week, but now that there's a warrant out for her arrest, we are so totally into this! If only she flagrantly disregarded the law more often.

Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel out in L.A. issued the bench warrant after Lohan didn't show for a hearing on Thursday. To provide you with some background, Lindsay went off to Cannes to tout her upcoming turn as porn star Linda Lovelace, but had yet to complete three remaining alcohol education classes as part of her probation terms for her 2007 intoxication conviction.

Well, the deadline came and went, but she stayed in Cannes, going so far as to claim that she couldn't get a flight because of ash from that Icelandic volcano. When that story was debunked (no flights had been delayed at the time), she said her passport was stolen. Too bad she has yet to apply for another one or report it to police, officials pointed out before it magically reappeared again. All that led Revel to set bail at $100,000, should Lindsay want to pay it to stay out of jail once she comes home. 

"Actions speak louder than words. I’ve heard the best words in the world, but the actions are far more important," Revel told Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, noting that hey, Lohan could have simply skipped the film festival or come home earlier. "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."

Did we mention that besides pay the bail, LiLo would have to agree to not drink alcohol, wear a SCRAM bracelet and submit to random drug testing once a week to stay out of the clink? That pretty much derails Lindsay's entire schedule, so we're guessing we'll see her in County soon after she heads back on Friday.
