Warrant Issued for Lindsay Lohan’s Arrest 2010-05-20 10:45:00

Warrant Issued For Lindsay Lohan’s Arrest — Think She Deserves Jail Time?

Lindsay Lohan has been partying it up at the Cannes Film Festival this week, under the guise of promoting her new Linda Lovelace movie. She's continued the good times with new guy friends like Dominic Cooper despite needing to be back in LA this morning for a court date. Lindsay claimed to not be able to make it to California in time since her passport was stolen, though she never reported the theft to the French police. She did, though, send a seemingly desperate email to friends hoping for a ride home on someone's private plane. Regardless, she was out last night until 4 a.m. and completely missed today's hearing — the judge in the case subsequently issued a warrant for her arrest. She's now facing a possible 180-day stay in jail upon her return to LA, unless she posts $100,000 bail. It's a severe punishment for not obeying the law, but it might be the eye-opener LL needs. So, tell us what you think — does Lindsay deserve jail time?

Yea really omigosh what is that? I'm sure as broke as the tabloids claim she is she can easily come up with 100k. But I'm sure it won't even come to that because she'll get 50 more chances before anyone actually throws her in jail. Hopefully she really gets sent to jail and gets the help she truly needs.

she should go to jail, but she also needs other help.

"She's now facing a possible 180-day stay in jail upon her return to LA, unless she posts $100,000 bail." You mean you can buy your way out of jail? What kind of a system is that?!

Excuses, excuses, excuses! This girl needs a wakeup call. She needs to go deal with her problems in private instead of perpetuating her bad behavior in public.

Kudos to the judge for issuing this warrant. She is NOT above the law!

She needs other help too - jail might be a wake-up call for Lohan or her mother.

I actually believe that jail time will be highly beneficial for this girl mental health. This is a girl that doesn't have a strong support system and whose parents are more busy talking to the media that actually helping her get clean. I hope she gets a good amount of jail time, not just 80 minutes.

she deserves jail and like Akasha said, she actually needs to serve time...not be thrown out for overcrowding.

I voted 'yes' and expected that a majority probably would, be I didn't think 97% would agree. This girl clearly needs help and has already been to rehab 3 times without much success so maybe some jail time will help. Plus from a legal standpoint, she has undoubtedly broke the law on many occasions with little consequence.

I just hope that the jail system actually locks her up this time. Last time she did 83 minutes in jail. She probably thinks that if she went to jail it would be over faster than if she went to a 60 day in patient rehab. She needs to do the full time otherwise she'll never get clean. I love Lindsey and wish she could do it on her own but clearly she can't. Besides it's gotten a bit ridiculous this Hollywood double standard. I was threatened with 10 days of jail time (or a $1200 fee) for having tinted windows on my car and this girl gets her 2nd DUI and does 83 minutes in jail. I guess in Hollywood you can still do what you want as long as you have the money to buy your way out of it.

yeah, never reported her passport stolen as if that's not important...lock her @$$ up, it MAY save her life - no guarantee...drugs are bad kids

I think she needs a wake-up call. Neither of her parents are helping her overcome whatever she's facing. SOMETHING needs to happen in order for her to realize that she cannot go on for very long this way -- she will ruin her future chances of any kind of career, or die because of the drug use/partying/drinking.

I hope she goes to jail, but I doubt she will. She knew she had a court date, and blatantly ignored it. There was no reason for her to be in Cannes, and if she was serious about meeting her obligations, she would have come home a couple of days in advance.

Yes she does deserve what she is getting. I highly doubt her passport was stolen. It's probably just another one of her lame excuses.

she's an idiot. just like what others have posted above...she has talent has completely taken advantage of every thing that has been handed to her. and then is completely enabled by those around her. she needs a serious wake up call.

She deserves jail time for stupidity. Hate that she just throws away her life like she does.

I hope no one pays bail for her - and that she is prohibited from paying her own bail. She needs a big wake-up call - a shock to the system. Otherwise, she will just continue to waste her talent and throw her life away. Sure, she is young. But her actions are just plain stupid. You don't go to Cannes when your freedom and future hang in the balance. You get a very good therapist. Go every day for treatment. Change your friends. Change your life. She is a very talented actress. She should harness every resource she can manage to get well.
