Lindsay Lohan out of jail after posting bail

Posted on

Lindsay Lohan posted bail and left a Los Angeles jail late Friday night, the Los Angeles Times reports. The actress was taken into custody on the morning of Sept. 24 for violating the terms of her probation stemming from a 2007 conviction for driving under the influence. The judge had denied her bail, but later that same afternoon another judge granted her a writ of habeas corpus and set bail for $300,000 following an appeal by her lawyer. Lohan left jail shortly before midnight Pacific time. She is due back in court on Oct. 22. The Mean Girls star used her Twitter account on Sept. 17 to express regret for the circumstances that led to her brief incarceration–she had reportedly failed a drug test–but she has yet to Tweet anything about her release. There has been some speculation that her Tweets about the matter played a role in her being sent to jail.
