Lohan fails drug & alcohol screening test

LOS ANGELES - Lindsay Lohan has failed a court-ordered drug and alcohol screening test and could face a probation violation that might throw her back in jail.

A person familiar with the case, who declined to be identified because of the sensitivity of the matter, confirmed the positive test results yesterday. The person declined to specify what substance triggered the positive result, which the source said occurred within the last month.

A judge had threatened Lohan with 30 days in jail for each probation violation. A hearing would be conducted before Lohan could be returned to jail.

Los Angeles County District Attorney spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said no such hearing had been scheduled as of yesterday afternoon.

Lohan, 24, was sentenced to three months in jail followed by three months in rehab after violating probation stemming from a pair of drug and driving-under-the-influence cases filed after two arrests in 2007. She ended up serving two weeks in jail and another 23 days in an inpatient rehab treatment at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
