Lindsay Lohan Arrest Warrant:

Paparazzi Defense

3/16/2009 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay LohanWe know exactly why Lindsay Lohan is being hauled into court Monday and it's no big deal -- probably.

Here's why an arrest warrant was issued. Lindsay was in an alcohol ed program for more than a year and was in full compliance with her probation. Sources say not too long ago she decided to switch programs. She either was late or missed one of the classes at the new program -- she says because the paparazzi made it impossible for her to show up on schedule. So the program director sounded the alarm last week to the court. And that's why the judge issued a warrant.

Based on what we know this is not a big deal and Lindsay's new lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, should be able to have the warrant 86'd -- no problemo. The only wild card: There's a new judge on the case and she's really tough.

We're told Lindsay will not show for the appearance unless the judge decides she wants her there.

Stay tuned.

I do not understand how a "program director" of an alcohol education and treatment program can create a warrant for anyone's arrest.

If this judge is as fair as she is rumored to be tough then the process that was used to get the warrant should be looked at. Given the penchant for publicity that the District Attorney's office has and their flair for making cases larger than life (Britney) the prosecuitor might find themselves sanctioned or jailed for a few hours for contempt.

Is Lohan in jail really doing "research" for a remake of "CHAINED HEAT"??? Im sure she loves being locked up with women. Will she be doing the broom handle scene that Linda Blair so artfully pulled off back in 1974 ?

FUNNY that you're reporting that Lindsay won't be appearing in court, when CNN had a story last night speaking to her lawyer that said Lezho WILL be appearing in court this morning. Either way, run down and set up a camera!

I woke up to my alarm clock radio this morning where it was stated that Lindsay had done it again, was arrested for yet another DUI incident. And that's why I tuned into TMZ. HOWEVER, ok, while TMZ gives another version as to the warrant for her arrest, I still feel that this girl has gone downhill in a very big way, and it's only a matter of time before she will eventually wind up seriously hurting someone (or herself) one day on the road. And then what, a slap on the wrist, perhaps 45 minutes in a jail cell?? These supposedly hollier-than-thous get away with murder. Actually one of them did!!And you guys know who I am talking about. I used to love Lindsay, but I can't stand her now!! She's lost her "role model" status to the younger generation a long time ago.

Lindsay broke probation by driving to Las Vegas to check up on Sam at a DJ gig. She arrived at 1:00 AM Tuesday morning, much to Sam's surprise.

After two hours of heavy drinking, Lindsay threw a hysterical temper tantrum. She got in her Mercedes and drove herself back to Los Angeles. She was in such a hurry and so upset, she left her bodyguard standing on the curb in Las Vegas.

The terms of her probation specifically forbid her from driving except to and from work. And of course she hasn't worked in over two years.

So she violated her probation and now has to explain herself to the Court. And of course, the judge wants her present at the probation hearing on Monday.

This is a little more serious than missing or being late to an AA meeting.

Rule of four "practice that permits four of the nine justices to grant a writ of certiorari."    

California Penal Code Section 646.9

"Stalkerazzi tactics range from jumping out of trees and bushes to sideswiping cars, Saunders said. In some cases, they may have gone even further: In May, police arrested a man and said he used his van to ram the car of teenage actress Lindsay Lohan near a shopping mall here. Several photographers were on the scene snapping pictures and shooting video before Lohan could even get out of her car." http://www.stalkingalert.com/Paparazzi.htm, accessed 3/16/09 at 10:15am

Voyeurism law needed
We're pleased to see state Rep. Clay Ford sponsoring legislation, to outlaw an ugly form of voyeurism, that common sense says shouldn't be needed — but the law plainly shows is needed.

"It seems ridiculous, but we have to really, really be clear in laws about things like that because every single word gets evaluated, and it makes a difference."

PEJORATIVE COMMENTS are not taken as jokes. As a whole number you are subsumed on your intellect and how this incident could possibly skew your prospective.
