Lindsay Lohan will be back in front of a judge this morning to determine the conditions of remaining free on bail after she violated the terms of her probation by failing to complete the mandatory alcohol education classes that were court-ordered after her second DUI arrest in 2007. To date, she’s only done ten of the thirteen required classes (and she didn’t show up to her own status hearing last week because she was so busy doing coke in France), but she still doesn’t understand why she would be facing jail time, because she was set up and none of this was her fault and ten is pretty close to thirteen in counting anyway. Us Magazine says
“I don’t see what reason I would go to prison for,” the actress, 23, tells Hollywood TV. “I’ve been more than compliant with everything having to do with the court system. I had no option but to stay [in Cannes because my passport was stolen]. I immediately was trying to find ways out.”
Of the photo of her apparently posing next to several lines of cocaine, Lohan explains fans pulled her into the room for a photo and she was unaware of the surroundings. “I wouldn’t know what was in the room,” she says. On Friday, she called the pics a “set up.”
Lohan also says she she should not go to rehab.
“I don’t see why I would even have to do that, considering I’ve been in compliance with everything that occurs when you’re in the court system for two DUIs,” she says.
Compliance is an awfully big word. Maybe no one explained to Lindsay it means “actually fulfilling the terms of your probation.” Not “intending to fulfill the terms of your probation,” and not “almost fulfilling the terms of your probation,” and certainly not “I would have fulfilled the terms of my probation if it weren’t for the countless sinister plots against me/death in the family/volcanic ash cloud/leprechauns/imaginary promotion of a movie that hasn’t even been filmed yet.” You can’t mow down a kid on a bike and then tell the judge, “Well, I intended to stop my car, and I almost stopped my car, and I totally would have stopped my car if I hadn’t needed to update my Twitter from my phone while I was driving, so this is really kinda the kid’s fault when you stop and think about it.” Not Guilty by Reason of Mental Defect defense is really the only chance this stupid cooze’s got left.
