Lindsay Lohan was lucky earlier this afternoon and didn’t get any jail time, however she was ordered by a judge to check back into rehab until January 3, 2011, reports TMZ.
After she’s released from the rehab program in January, she’ll have to remain clean and sober at least until her next scheduled court date on February 25th, where she could be rewarded with unsupervised probation. All she has to do is not test positive for any drugs or alcohol between January 3rd and the February court date, but if her past is any indication, that might be a hard thing to accomplish.
The D.A. had recommended that Lohan spend 180 days in jail, but the judge thought it would be more important for Lindsay to stay in rehab.
The judge commented to Lindsay, “You are an addict. I hope you understand that,” continuing “I don’t want another train wreck.”
We’ll just have to wait and see if Lindsay can actually recover or not.
According to TMZ singer Bruno Mars has finally been officially charged with possession of a controlled substance after being arrested in Las Vegas last month.
On the 19th of September, Mars was arrested following an eye witness account by a hotel bathroom attendant who claims he saw the singer walk into a bathroom stall with a “baggie of white powdery substance.”
If Mars is convicted the maximum penalty is four years in prison and a $5,000 fine. Speculation as of now indicates that he won’t be serving any of that jail time though—he can thank his squeaky clean record for that.
TMZ is reporting that Lindsay Lohan has failed drug test that was a requirement of her criminal case.
The drug test, which took place last week was court-mandated as part of her sentencing and, as per the terms of her probation, Lindsay is supposed get 30 days in jail for testing positive.
TMZ spoke to D.A. spokesperson Sandi Gibbons, who told them that the D.A.’s office hasn’t been “officially been” notified about Lindsay’s little misstep and no official procedures have been set in place yet.
“People with addiction problems don’t get better magically, and she’s really been making an effort to make herself better,” one source close to Lindsay says.
The photographer that Adam Lambert allegedly roughed up in Miami on Thursday has filed a police report that accuses Lambert of misdemeanour battery, reports PerezHilton.com.
According to the report, the singer allegedly took hold of the photographer’s backpack “where the camera was placed” and “wrestled [the photographer] to the ground forcefully.”
Although the report that was filed states that the photographer didn’t receive any “bruises or lacerations,” if Lambert is prosecuted, he faces some pretty hard penalties. Worst case scenario, he faces a $1,000 fine and up to a year in jail.
Lambert responded to the claims on his Twitter account saying, “Battery? Nope. I attempted to grab a camera, no punches were thrown and no one was on the ground…. It was literally harmless. If embarrassment is a crime- thats all I’m guilty of.”
Charlie Sheen has got a choice to make now that his lawyers and prosecutors have reached a deal, and he has got four different options to choose from, reports TMZ. To settle his domestic violence case, Sheen will have to pick one of the four, and one involves time in jail.
As TMZ lays it out, Charlie basically has to make a choice between jail time, strict probation, deferred prosecution (case would not go forward but Sheen must follow several conditions—including not breaking the law), and going to trial to fight the accusations.
The time behind bars, should Sheen choose it, would include 30 days in an Aspen jail, which has the possibility of being cut down to 17 days with good behaviour, and could start as soon as June 7.
Currently no known decision has been made by Charlie.
