Lindsay Lohan necklace
A probation report that was released Wednesday after Lindsay Lohan pleaded no-contest to misdemeanor theft for swiping a necklace said the actress drank alcohol the night she had a run-in with a Betty Ford Center employee in December, according to People. The report also said that Lohan “has been suspected of similar conduct in other jewelry stores” but no charges were ever filed.
Citing local police interviews, the probation report said Lohan drank alcohol after sneaking out of the desert facility. Charges that she battered a rehab employee that night were dropped for lack of evidence.
Lohan, 24, tested positive for booze in February, one week after her assistant surrendered the allegedly stolen necklace to the LAPD. “The probation officer believes that substance abuse is the root of the defendant’s problems,” the report says.
In exchange for pleading no contest to misdemeanor theft of a $2,500 necklace, Lohan was ordered to undergo psychological counseling instead of more rehab, in addition to a four-month jail term and community service. She’s expected to do her time at home because she’s not violent.
