Lindsay Lohan Can Drink ... For a Price

6/9/2010 6:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has done some digging, and it turns out Lindsay Lohan is effectively free to drink as she pleases, provided she's willing to pay $10,000 for a vodka on the rocks.

Lindsay Lohan

The man who posted Lindsay's bail yesterday -- David Perez -- tells TMZ Lindsay didn't really forfeit her $100,000 bail.  The judge just applied the $100,000 to the new, enhanced bail, adding another $100,000 on, thus forcing Lindsay to pay an additional 10% premium to Perez. So Lindsay has really lost nothing, other than having to pay a total of $20,000 to the bail bondsman.

If the SCRAM people tell the judge Lindsay is drinking again, the judge will go through the same drill. Judge Revel can't revoke bail altogether and throw Lindsay in jail ...  because the case involves only a misdemeanor.  As long as Lindsay keeps paying the increased premium, she'll be free.

Bottom line ... if Lindsay wants to keep drinking, it will probably cost her $10,000 a pop. 

One more twist. Even though Lindsay is insisting she wasn't drinking Sunday night, it won't do her any good to get Shawn Chapman Holley to challenge it.  Even if Holley can convince the judge the SCRAM reading was bogus, all the judge would do is cancel the $200,000 bail and go back to the $100,000 bail.  So Lindsay would get $10,000 back, but it would probably cost $25 grand in legal and expert fees.

Each time she drinks, bail is reset, is a VOP. So Judge CAN'T put her in jail for the misdemeanor charge, but she CAN throw her in for her numerous VOP.
Looks like Judge Revel is just waiting for July hopefully.
LL's got the rope, and is sloooowly pulling it tighter and tighter with each infraction. Hopefully, when July rolls around then Judge Revel can/will step up and do what is right. This girl needs to be stopped, before she stops herself. Permanently.

The clowns right, its reported that Lindsay drank 99 bottles of beer that night. She actualy had special shelves installed on her "wall" to hold 99 bottles.

Here's the thing - any other person would have to show their face to post a bail, not send some schmuck attorney to do the bidding for you. For the people that think she may have a mental illness, sure, let's give them the easy way out and call rich-spoiled-brats a mental disease. Then they can get the help and collect the benefits on the backs of the poor, single people. I say let her go without a SCRAM device. Let destiny decide her fate - if she wipes out a few people in a drunk-driving stupor, who gives a **** - consumers are born everyday - people ARE replaceable.

The judge in this case is nothing more than a greedy bitch. If there is no point in Lindsay wearing a scram, if violating probation cannot land her in jail, then why bother? Mama wants a new pair of shoes - or she wants her case with Lindsay to bring her notoriety.

Wow... remember when LiLo had to wear that bracelet thing and everyone was so happy she got her **** straight? You know she really learned her lesson & it was soo horrendous to have to go through all of that, surely she'd never get her **** all ****ed up again?



Oh wait... all that **** already happened. WTF this is like deja vu, cept instead of a house cat, it's crown to a full size gay man's vegas stage cat!

That is pretty presumptuous. The judge can violate her & have her in court, moving up her appearance. Either way, the probation violations will be taken into account when she appears for her scheduled court date. The judge doesn't seem oblivious or happy with LiLo's games. She's likely to get her ass handed to her.

also, im getting sick of this stupid lawyer shawn holley........this is one big huge publicity stunt for all parties involved, lindsey, holley, and the retarded judge that shouldnt be given authority over anyone based on how many times she has imposed rules on lindsey, and not dont one single thing about it when she breaks them. she needs to be fired if she isnt gonna do her job.



but about this so called 'lawyer' representing lindsey........there comes a point in time when you defend someone in a court of law, that once said client ****s up over and over and over again, you need to walk away. TAKE YOUR JOB SERIOUSLY



HELP PEOPLE THAT ACTUALLY NEED A GOOD DEFENSE FOR SOMETHING THEY ARE BEING ACCUSED OF THAT THEY DIDNT COMMIT



stop wasting your time with stupid ass people that could give a **** less what happens to themselves!



help the people that need the help. the lawyer shoudl also be fired for lying in court about linsdey 'loosing her passport' or being late for court because of whatever reason



where im from, if your late for court, you go straight to jail




AND THIS PART IF FOR TMZ STAFF.....PLEASE READ:



PLEASE START REPORTING ON THE SORRY ASS JOB THIS JUDICIAL SYSTEM IN CALIFORNIA IS DOING. MAKE A STORY OUT OF WHAT THEY ARE DOING, HOW THEY ARE LETTING LINDSEY DO WHATEVER SHE WANTS, NOT PUTTING HER IN JAIL FOR MULTIPLE COUNTS OF PROBATION VIOLATION, NOT PUTTING HER IN JAIL FOR DRINKING, NOT PUTTING HER IN JAIL FOR CARRYING COCAINE INTO THE JAIL, NO PUNISHMENT FOR BEING LATE TO COURT, NOT DOING ANYTHING BUT TALKING OUT OF THEIR ASSES



MAKE A STORY OF THIS. LET IT BE KNOWN



one more thing, i will bet my bottom dollar, lindsey hasnt taken a drug test this week, or last.......which was another court ordered stipulation of her bail and probation set upon her a couple weeks ago. random drug tests every week, we arent stupid. nobodys getting a drug test. keep up your publicity, but i pray to god that someone speaks out on this sorry ass excuse for a judicial system they have going for them in california



TMZ< DO YOUR JOB....REPORT ON IT

So in other words LiLo is thumbing her nose at the legal system and giving the judge the middle finger.
