Lindsay Lohan's Lawyer -- Just a Little Booze

6/8/2010 9:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, tells TMZ Lindsay's SCRAM bracelet "indicated the presence of a small amount of alcohol on Sunday night."

Holley added, "Having just received the report, I am not in a position to speak to its accuracy or validity, however, Ms. Lohan maintains that she has been in complete compliance with all of the terms of her probation and her bail."

So either SCRAM is inaccurate, or Lindsay ain't fessin' up.  Ultimately, it's Judge Marsha Revel's call on July 6 -- or before, if Lindsay goes astray.

actually, the after party is the MOST likely scenario for a false positive. All you need is a drop of drunk person's sweat on your skin, or a peck on the cheek, a kiss, or worse yet a full palm handshake with someone drunk. Those are all far over the SCRAM threshold. She should have been thrown in jail at the time of the DUI for a year (as should everyone who drives drunk), and this would've all been over. I personally suspect the adderall is the real problem. Anyway, SCRAM bracelets are junk and tons of engineers know it; some even having proved it. In Michigan, positives are tossed all day every day. What's the point ? A device that WORKS is the sobrietor. IT is a true fuel cell blood alcohol meter with tether technology. If she wants to prove she hasn't drank, she should get an EG test at a hospital ASAP

I agree that this is probably what happened. It could be mouthwash, perfume or hair product or anything. Why should she lose at least 10k if it is a small amount it's not like she downed a bottle of Patron or anything. You can tell from all the recent pics and videos of her that she hasn't drank.
Now i don't even think that she will get a fair chance in July

What confuses me is that the Judge put this order in place so she would be monitored for alcohol and yet the thing goes off and she's still walking the streets.



So what was the point of putting it on in the first place Judge Revel if your not going to follow up immediately and place her in jail for violating on the drinking order ? What a joke this has all become.



Didn't she previously have her scram go off way back at the beginning of this whole ordeal and she never saw a cell in jail ?



Why put these restrictions on her and then take no action ? It's giving her the message that she can still do whatever she wants, it show's that she's still different and can get away with it. Shame On the JUDGE !

Why wasn't the bit__ thrown in jail? What is wrong with the CA judicial system? She should have gone when the cops found cocaine on her. You and I would have been in jail a long time for the same things she is 'getting away' with! Why doesn't the judge throw her in jail and say it's over. Enough is enough. The media needs to hop all over the CA judges, as well as the CA cops for allowing this to happen and underage drinking in the LA nightclubs.

She only had a little alcohol is like telling someone not to steal then saying "she only took a candy bar" Didn't anyone ever tell Lindsay "NO means NO" Period.

@135
A little alcohol could be anything
She is actually taking steps to prove her innocence

Normally one would think she is not dumb enough to drink with it on, but she did pull that crap with the passport lie/Cannes trip, so I am no longer sure if she is devious and aware or just stupid.
But, TMZ should at least attempt to state that the SCRAM does pick up alcohol, even from lotion or perfume that she might have used. TMZ is not going out of their way to put that part of the equation out there, but then again, Lindsay does not give anyone reason to defend her actions.

She drinks with the court monitor on her leg and she is still free. This is an absolute JOKE. She is going to get away with everything that all of us would be put in jail for. I think these judges should be voted out.

#1 Brian---WTF...omg...someone had a brain fart or did one too many hits of poppers while he was writing his response to this story. My guess is, Lindsey had a "cold" and was drinking way too much cough medicine...at least that is what her lawyer will argue when the judge throws the book at her on July 6th...or sooner...stay tuned.

I just heard on the news the Judge didn't throw her in jail for it she just doubled up her bail. She should go to jail... we would be there.

We miss seeing you in the movies. Don't end up like some of the others that have lost everything. You are young and beautiful. I'm sorry that your family life is a mess but don't let that mess up your career. Stand up for yourself be a lady and get back your life you deserve that. You don't deserve all this grap. You seem like a very smart young lady so prove to everyone that you can do this and get back on your feet and get your life, career and your respect back you deserve that PLEASE. A CONCERN FAN

She is known to drink Kombucha, a health drink that has a tiny alcohol content from fermentation. I wonder if this could trigger a positive reading.
