7/24/2007 1:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan. Blair BerkLindsay's attorney, Blair Berk, issued the following statement to TMZ:

"Addiction is a terrible and vicious disease. Since Lindsay transitioned to outpatient care, she has been monitored on a SCRAM bracelet and tested daily in order to support her sobriety. Throughout this period, I have received timely and accurate reports from the testing companies. Unfortunately, late yesterday I was informed that Lindsay had relapsed. The bracelet has now been removed. She is safe, out of custody and presently receiving medical care."

Lawyer crap, thanks for the release.
She was drinking in rehab. That movie was cancelled because they knew she was still going to use, She is done.
I'm so angry that she could have killed someone, who cares if she is safe
How many crash's does this make for her? I dont want her out on the roads.

Addiction isn't a joke. But there's a difference between being an "addict" and being someone who just doesn't give a damn. Enough is enough. JAIL TIME. If this had been any member of the public sector, or someone without the means to hire defense attorneys or check into swanky rehab places, they'd be in the pokey by now.

And as far as jokes are concerned - people like Lohan and Spears are making jokes out of sobriety and treatment centers all together. I mean, both checked into "Promises", both are out drinking it up again.

I wonder. . .if we all just stopped paying attention, would Lohan just GO AWAY???

The reason people are making a big deal about this is because she is going to receive special treatment because of who she is regardless of what she is done. The spin will be that 'did time' and 'knows what it feels like' which is absolute garbage. Its basically a slap to the public's face and the judiciary system. The real sad part isn't that she is addicted to drugs and alcohol, the sad part is that some kid in the midwest reading this online or watching it on tv will deem it 'cool'. Only the kid won't have the $25k for bail or the legal team to back them up when it happens to them.

The people that are claiming this to be 'growing pains' are just trying to normalize the event. Fact is people do go through growing pains. However, the misconception here is that the majority of Americans don't grab two DUI's, wreck a car, get caught with possession of cocaine, and make millions of dollars through their 'growing pains'. To sum this up and liken it to someone just going through a phase is ridiculous.

If she has an addiction then fine, go get help somewhere that is legit. Move away from your problems. There are several solutions.

Fact is though, she doesn't want a solution. Although we deem these acts dangerous to her career, they also are keeping her afloat in the public eye. Any PR person will tell you that any publicity is good publicity. Without these arrests she fades away from the eyes and ears of the masses.

Here in about 4-5 years she will be a thing of the past when the hot, new, young starlets start hitting the red carpet and she will have to pay the paparazzi to take pictures of her. Although she may not realize this, her agent, PR person, and any marketing team associated with her know it.

PEOPLE LIKE YOU REALLY IRRITATES ME. YOU AND YOUR RACIST COMMENTS. I ASSUME THAT YOU ARE BLACK, SO LET ME PUT THIS TO YOU. HAVE YOU EVER STOPPED TO THINK ABOUT ALL THE GUN VIOLENCE/MURDERS, AND ROBBERIES THAT HAVE HAPPENED? WELL, MOST OF THEM ARE COMMITTED BY BLACKS. I GUESS IT WOULD BE OKAY FOR ME TO SAY, "TYPICAL BLACKS'.

If you don't have a comment that makes sense, keep your stupid thoughts to your racist self.

Just in case you are wondering, I am BLACK, not white....

Now, go get a life....

I have a son who is 21. I'm sorry, I just feel so badly for this girl. I imagine her as my own child, and it breaks my heart how lost and very alone she is with these demons. Some people have to go to rehab over and over again, but I'm afraid she will kill someone before long, as she refuses to let someone else drive, or take a taxi. It seems she is around no one who really cares. So sad.

Good thing she got an early start to her carreer cause at age 21 she is washed up and carreer has gone by by. Same thing for britney. Poor Paris, oh well, she never had a carreer any way.

Mad As Hell    

No jail for Lindsay!!!!

I vote for boot camp, then enlistment into The Army or Marines. Then, we can send her IRAQ, so she can take her aggressions out there. Thus, becoming a benefit to society.

Then, I vote that we send Nicole Ritchie and Britney and Paris with her.

If you don't agree, how about a placement in a mental hospital, that'd work too. But no Rehab please. It's stupid to think Rehab actually works when a person is forced to go there. Gee Whiz, what's next???

So the only person who was monitoring her SCRAM was HER lawyer???/!!! Now that's irony for you! Talk about useless!! And he was "informed late yesterday"? And he did what to head off her DUI this AM? Nothing apparently! Like Shakespear said "First, kill all the lawyers!". Who the hell is he to be monitoring the SCRAM? It needs to be someone who has authority and a duty to act - not react!

So she gets drunk, relapses and buys it for a DUI and what do they do? TGake the SCRAM off! Great! Now she can drink all she wants and no one will know - except for the poor sucker she kills while driving drunk and drugged up!

She need to get out of CA, as has been said, and in to a REAL rehab in a REAL place, not a plastic rehab in a plastic town!

medical treatment? yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh right. Jail would be the reality pill of choice in this case. Too much money, too little brains. She's through. Career over.

Addiction is indeed a terrible and vicious disease; but driving while under the influence is far worse. These idiots don't die, no, they end up killing some innocent bystander. Knowing someone who was killed by a drunk driver, I have no pity on poor Lindsay Lohan. Grow up and accept that you need help.

Enough is enough!! What a joke. If she was just an ordinary person, she would be in jail. Rehab doesn't help unless you want and accept the help. Obviously, she doesn't. She should do her time in jail!!
