Lindsay Lohan's Movie Excuse -- Total BS

5/25/2010 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan made it clear to the court that she didn't wanna wear a SCRAM bracelet because she thought it would get in the way of an upcoming movie shoot in Texas -- problem is, no such shoot exists.

TMZ has contacted the producers of the only two motion picture projects Lindsay is currently attached to -- "Machete" and "Inferno" -- and they both made it very clear that LiLo has no business in Texas.

A rep for "Machete" tells us there ARE additional scenes being shot in Texas but, "according to the director, they don't include [Lindsay]."

As for "Inferno," a rep tells us, The Linda Lovelace biopic "doesn't plan on starting shooting 'till the beginning of August."  Also, it's not being shot in Texas -- so the SCRAM bracelet would have no affect on that film either.

Lindsay's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, relayed Lohan's excuse to Judge Marsha Revel on Monday -- but the judge didn't buy it anyway ... and forced her to SCRAM it up.

Can't someone put this chick in jail? Why does she get to buy her way out of justice where any "normal" citizen would be sitting in a cell. Lock her and all the other "celebrity" as****s up when they screw up. They deserve nothing special.

You'd think she'd at least be concerned about her LOOKS, since she's clearly at the point where no amount of pancake makeup can disguise the ravages of her alcoholism....

This little piece of crap really needs a reality check. She shown complete contempt for that court. NO RESPECT! We all know she will drink...I can;t wait to see her in JAIL where this disrespectful piece of garbage belongs. Her own parents are just as bad. They stand by and DO NOTHING. Even Britney Spears father got fed up and tossed her in the HOSPITAL....What is it with the LOHAN parents that they seem to enjoy watching the "MESS" known as Lindsay! Just but this punk ass kid in jail! STOP THE NONSENSE!

I actually feel sorry for her right now. Yeah, she messed up big time. But, she must be in a terrible place right now.



Imagine her leaving the courthouse with that thing on her leg. She looked like hell and probably could have had a bloody mary before or after court.



She must feel so trapped. She cant leave LA. Cant go home to see her family. Nothing.




I know she did this all to herself, but, "if" she is a major alcoholic, what is she going to do??? She could get really sick. I guess she could go to a doctor like some other people have mentioned.



I dont know. She just looked so miserable yesterday. I dont think the court is going about this right.



Guess we will just have to wait and see if she can make it. Sure hope she can, but, being in LA around the same people and places is going to be VERY hard.

Geez what a suprise she tells more lies. Thats what drug addicts only know how to do. That smug hefer attorney smiled in the judges face and lied, to bad she cant be disbarred for such baloney! Im sure the prosecuter will bring that up in the hearing on July 6th. Her web of lies will catch up to her although she dosent think so.

Thanks for clarifying. I was not quite sure on the concept. I recalled reading that while on the jury, listen to those under oath on the witness chair. As I understood it, the lawyers are not obligated to tell the truth when talking to the jury. Again, thanks for clearing that up.

Yes, lying in court when under oath is a serious offense. However, Lindsay didn't lie in court, her lawyer lied for her. Lawyers are allowed to lie. They're professional liars. Lawyers are never under oath.

So, both she and her lawyer lied to a judge. That's contempt of court.



They both belong behind bars.

Why is everyone so surprised that Lindsay lied about her movie commitment in order to avoid wearing the SCRAM bracelet? Addicts lie. They do it frequently and so easily. Sometimes, they aren't even aware they are doing it, especially in the case of opiate addiction. DENIAL = Don't Even kNow I Am Lying.
What surprises me is that her lawyer is perpetuating Lindsay's lies. Is she an addict as well and relying on Lindsay to supply her?

To the person who wrote "all people who work on a movie have to be at the reshoot" sorry Dina or whoever you are that is false. I work on movie sets and that is not true. Try again.

There is not one shred of evidence or proof that she is abusing perscription or illegal drugs and there is absolutely no evidence or proof that she is abusing alcohol. Until there is; anyone who says this is a liar!
I think that the judge should have evidence or proof before she imposes restrictions.

When her lawyer said that she had movie work in Texas why did the prosecutor stay silent? We should slam her for coming to court without the facts.
The prosecuitor wants her in jail, thats fine it is her opinion and she is allowed to think that but she has to earn it with the truth and by throwing the other lawyer under the bus every time she tells something that is not a fact.
