Judge Recalls Lindsay Lohan's Arrest Warrant

By Chloe Bunker on March 16, 2009

LOS ANGELES — A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has dismissed an arrest warrant issued Friday for actress Lindsay Lohan.

Judge Marsha N. Revel made the ruling Monday morning, determining that the "Mean Girls" star has been complying with the terms of her probation stemming from a 2007 DUI conviction.

Lohan's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, provided proof to the court that the star has been compliant with her alcohol education classes.

"As you saw in court, this was really much ado about nothing," Holley told reporters after the hearing, while explaining that there was a miscommunication when Lohan switched treatment programs.

The judge also noted that Lohan, who did not appear in court, has not failed any drug or alcohol tests.

Shortly after the $50,000 arrest warrant was issued late Friday, Holley told reporters it was nothing more than a "misunderstanding."

Lohan is currently serving a three-year probation term, having twice been arrested for DUI in 2007. She famously spent 84 minutes in jail in November 2007 after the arrests, the first of which came after she wrecked her car in Beverly Hills and the second following a car chase in Santa Monica.
