Lindsay Lohan checked into the Betty Ford Centre in order to stay sober, and despite doing so, the SCRAM bracelet around her ankle is still attached. According to RadarOnline, Lindsay can’t wait to get rid of the thing, and is doing everything she can to get it off.
“Lindsay wants her alcohol monitoring device off – now,” a source said. The source continued, saying that “Lindsay complains because it is supposedly very uncomfortable,” and that she is hoping that her lawyer will be able to set her free from the device soon.
Lindsay violated her probation after serving 13 days in jail, testing positive for cocaine, furthering the actress’ spiral downward. Judge Schnegg allowed Lindsay to post bail for the probation violation, but as a condition she has to wear the SCRAM up until, and maybe after, her next court hearing on the 22nd of October.
“Lindsay doesn’t understand why she has to wear the SCRAM because she voluntarily checked into rehab and she is tested for drugs while being at Betty Ford,” the source said.
We think it’s pretty obvious though, Lindsay.
The SCRAM bracelet that Lindsay Lohan is being forced to wear has its very own Twitter account, reports PerezHilton
Scram Bracelet (@FreckleLeech) describes itself as “thoughts from the snowy white freckle fields of Lindsay Lohan’s left ankle.”
With over 2,000 followers already, FreckleLeech has been tweeting such insightful things as “Really bummed we aren’t at #LeDeux. Really, REALLY bummed. Instead we stayed at home and watched Heidi try to cry on #TheHills,” and “You guys! I’m like the table the Treaty of Versailles was signed on! #PapaAndMamaLohanGetAlongNow.”
FreckleLeech came into the Twitterverse on June 1. Let’s see how long she (he? We won’t go there) lasts.
Lindsay Lohan might have escaped jail time for now, but she is stuck with an alcohol-monitoring SCRAM bracelet that she has to wear on her ankle, and that could cause some more trouble.
Even if she does stay away from the booze, the little thing still might be able to annoy Judge Martha Revel, reports E! Online. Lindsay sent out a tweet Thursday asking for some help to make the ankle-accessory look a little more red carpet worthy.
“Can CHANEL please help me out by getting me some stickers to put on my scram bracelet so that i can at least wear a chic dress?! maybe!?,” Lohan asked via Twitter.
Kathleen Brown of Alcohol Monitoring Systems, the company the makes the SCRAM products, told E! Online that offenders “are financially responsible for any damage, or losing the bracelet and/or base station. [They] must pay for repairs up to replacement cost of $1,500.”
Though it may not directly land her in any legal trouble, altering the SCRAM bracelet’s appearance likely wouldn’t impress Revel.
