Lindsay Lohan Vindicated by Alcohol Test

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Movies, Drunk, Legal Issues, Parties, Rumors,

Lindsay Lohan at the MTV Movie AwardsUPDATE: New sources say that Lindsay’s alcohol level was 0.4 when the SCRAM bracelet alert went off.

Much to people’s disbelief, tested negative for alcohol following a recent alert from her SCRAM bracelet.

Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, revealed that a urine test extracted shortly after the alert tested negative, proving the troubled starlet’s unwavering statements about her innocence to be true.

The actress, despite her strict bail requirements, was all too tempted to attend an MTV Movie Awards after party earlier this month; at the soiree, Lohan’s alcohol monitoring bracelet went off, blinking a red light through her boots (she later denied this, claiming that the light came from a bracelet her friend had given her).

Faster than anyone could say, “I Know Who Killed Me,” a warrant was issued… and then later recalled once Lohan coughed up a cool 10% of the bail—$20,000. The district attorney’s office previously said that the alert was “an alcohol-related violation.”

No word yet as to what actually set off the alert.

Warrant for Lindsay Lohan Recalled

Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan should have limited her appearance to the red carpet.

Following the ceremony, Linds partied a little too hard - or at least, that’s the story her SCRAM bracelet tells. After Lohan’s alcohol-monitoring device went off Sunday night, alerting authorities that she was in violation of her parole, a bench warrant was issued for her arrest.

The warrant was later recalled after a bail bondsman posted $20,000 - 10% of her $200,000 bail - to keep free from custody.

The actress turned to her - predictably - to deny the allegations that she violated her parole. Linds wrote: “My scram wasn’t set off-Its physically impossible considering I’ve nothing for it to go off-All of these false resports are absolutely wrong.”
