Probation Dept. Cuts Lindsay Lohan a Break

9/22/2010 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan may actually skate on a failed drug test ... sources connected with the case tell TMZ.

We've learned the second test Lindsay failed showed a positive reading for Adderall, but the L.A. County Probation Department is not recommending jail time for that violation -- because there is an ambiguity in the paperwork that went from the court to the Probation Office.

The Probation Department is recommending 30 days jail time for the first failed drug test which showed a positive reading for cocaine.

Now here's where it gets interesting ... Judge Elden Fox has a couple of options on Friday.  He could sentence Lindsay on the spot to 30 days in jail for the cocaine violation ... but because of overcrowding Lindsay would be released the same day.

Judge Fox's other option is to deny her bail, throw her in jail and set a hearing that would take place 30 days later.  Under this scenario, Lindsay would not be released early -- she'd sit in jail for 30 days until her hearing.  We're told judges do this "all the time" when they want to make sure a defendant does the time.

Friday should be interesting.

If she wants to do drugs, who cares. What she did wrong was driving while under the influence, putting others at risk. How about suspend her driving priv. for a long while. Then she can do all the drugs she wants and only hurt herself, this sideshow is costing the state of CA so much money, it's such a waste. Jail for failing a drug test, do you know how much it costs to incarcerate someone for 30 days? Let her pay a fine and go home, without a license.

If I were here I would move out of the USSA preferably to Europe. Lindsey is a free adult person and if she wants to get high as long as she does not hurt anyone is her business.. So she likes blow, whats the big deal, why is that the courts business. I would move out of this Nazi country so soon that I would live dirt clouds behind.

Adderal seems to be deficient in getting her attention. Maybe the threat of a psych ward would work in terms of scaring the beejesuzzz out of her cuz these places are real hellholes for zombies and requiring her to VISIT one may make a difference. I feel bad for Lilo as the medical profession has failed each and every addict and they (MDs & RNs) are never held accountable & have let Rx get out of hand so they personally benefit from trips, ETC. from the pharm. co.s. We don't have health care..we have big business and every politician, evry medical rep and even patients know it. The addicts aren,t the criminals here......

JAIL: rehab not possible here. Mandate that she VISIT a psych hosp. to see where she could end up. If Lilo doesn't WANT to get off drugs, she won't. Get rid of the MDs who prescribe this junk, get rid of the street sellers (if the cops will do it...e.g Paris is an example of running amok) and forbid politicians to support of Rx Co.s so the docs can have their vacations and other benefits
which really give mds and rns license to issue all the drugs they want. Lilo did not start this ball rolling. Her dad seems to have learned a lesson and more people should pay attention to him, including lilo whom i feel is caught up in something not of her doing.

in order to eradicate drugs from our society we all should boycott the films of such actor / actress, who are involved in drugs. We all want drug free USA and worlD. And these kind of peoples are senind wrong message to our younger generation.

Can you believe it? Agree with most of the other posters; if this was us, we'd still be sitting in jail trying to get used to prison food! Who gets to "choose" when they failed a drug test?? I'll answer that: No one except a celebrity. Lindsay, go to jail, quit whining, put down the pipe for a minute, and try to think of something or someone other than your pathetic self. Drama queen, it's gettin' old.

What a bunch of BS. You or me would be in jail.
I guess if you got big bucks, you can tell the court FU and have no problem.
Put the stupid bitch in jail.
