At yesterday’s hearing, Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer petitioned Judge Marsha Revel to allow Lindsay to undergo random alcohol testing rather than fit her with the SCRAM bracelet because Lindsay would be filming a movie in Texas and it would “interfere” with her work. Reasonable argument, except the Texas Film Commission has no permits connecting Lindsay to any film whatsoever and her IMDb profile currently shows no projects in development. Good thing the judge said no, then. According to TMZ:
Lindsay Lohan made it clear to the court that she didn’t wanna wear a SCRAM bracelet because she thought it would get in the way of an upcoming movie shoot in Texas — problem is, no such shoot exists.
The producers of the only two motion picture projects Lindsay is currently attached to — “Machete” and “Inferno” — tell us there ARE additional ["Machete"] scenes being shot in Texas, “but they don’t include [Lindsay].”
As for “Inferno,” a rep tells us it’s not being shot in Texas — so the SCRAM bracelet would have no affect on that film either.
I thought lying in court was called “perjury” and against the law, even if you had your attorney do it for you. But then again, what do I know? I thought possessing a controlled substance and operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and not showing up to court was against the law, too. Apparently the laws in Los Angeles aren’t so much “laws” as they are “general guidelines.” Sorta like the Code of the Brethren set down by the pirates Morgan and Bartholomew, except for celebrities instead of multiple amputees with scurvy.
