Lindsay Probation Report: She's Been Drinking Again!

3/17/2011 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's probation report says she's been drinking fermented tea that contains alcohol -- yeah, big whoop. 

0316_lindsay_lohan_PCN
Sources familiar with the report tell TMZ ... Lindsay fessed up to her probation officer ... she was drinking Kombucha tea, which has an alcohol content of 0.5% or less ...  and now the L.A. County Probation Department added it to the list of reasons why the judge should violate her probation and send her to jail.

Lindsay was so bold ... she actually left one of her alcohol ed classes clutching a bottle of Kombucha.

That plea bargain's sounding better than ever.

It’s an issue because it’s a potential probation violation and Lindsay knows that.

Too bad the Huffington Post isn’t the presiding Judge in Lindsay’s case.

So long as Lindsay thinks all this is a joke, and so long as Lindsay can’t stop laughing, she will be in the hands of the court, and when the court gets sick and tired of Lindsay, and the court finally decides that Lindsay is not taking this matter seriously, THAT is when Lindsay will no longer be eligible for probation.

Instead of encouraging this poor behavior, people ought to be supporting Lindsay by convincing her to do the right thing, one day at a time, abide by the rules of her probation, and finally get it over with. Otherwise she’s going to be forced to do the time in jail instead.

First off Red Cloud completely twisted the Huffington Post article because it QUITE CLEARLY stated that the tea was under scrutiny due to it's alcoholic content. And furthermore, at that time (July 14, 2010,) the FDA was considering whether to place it into the same category as beer and wine due to its alcoholic content. Read the article, next time, Red Sitting Cloud Bull, if you dare to quote it.

Secondly, I agree with Italia. Lindsay needs to take sobriety seriously and TRY to get sober - if she wants to keep on keeping on, let alone stay out of jail. And yes, if she TRULY wanted to do it, and TOOK REAL STEPS to doing it, I would support her on it. Although I think she needs and deserves to serve jail time as well for her crimes.

I seem to recall stating that she was pulling dirty urine tests that we hadn't yet heard of and this seems to verify my suggestion.

This just in

Even though Kamofie & Company, the jewelry store that Lindsay Lohan allegedly stole a $2500 necklace from have sold the surveillance tape for a profit, and is even seeking a book deal, sources connected to the case reveal that their actions don't alter or mitigate the fact a crime may have been committed.

"Danette Meyers has a very strong case against Lindsay, even though the owners are now profiting after the fact the crime occurred,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com. “The surveillance video shows Lindsay walking out of the store with the necklace on, period. The clerk didn't notice that Lindsay still had the necklace on when Lindsay left the store. The jewelry store owners’ actions subsequently don't change the facts of what occurred."

Even without the surveillance video, the DA's case against Lohan is rock solid, according to our source. "Lindsay turned the necklace into the cops. Those are the actions of a guilty person. If the surveillance video didn't exist, Lindsay turns over to cops the necklace she was accused of taking. Meyers wouldn't have filed on Lohan if she didn't feel she could get a conviction.

"Is it going to be problematic for the DA if the case goes to trial and the owners testify? Yes. Their credibility will be on the line, make no doubt about that. The DA will point out that they sold the tapes AFTER the crime occurred though and not before.

“That is the beautiful thing about America, Lindsay is entitled to a jury trial. It will be up to the jury to decide whether she is innocent or guilty. The DA is confident in her case, period," the source said.

Don't think the tea is the issue. It's a good cover if she does test positive for any alcohol when she has to take a test. She as an addict, must know every trick in the book on how to get by these "random" tests. How is she being checked in New York when she out parting until 4am? Poor little innocent picked upon Lindsay, I'm sure her new team will spin some more stories that TMZ and Radar can print before the next court date. Just let her do what she wants and let our taxes pay for something more useful than more publicity for this usually out of work actress.

dina told lindsay ok you failed all the alcohol so we are going to blame it on the tea. they were probably doing body shots on each other while the non acting brother had fun with his boyfriend. Ali does not stand a chance. and whats this i heard micheal was making out with Kim G did he just finish celeb rehab

For what it's worth, the kombucha controversy is not that it has a little alcohol, but that it is unpredictable how much alcohol is in it. It can be .5%, which is what they report to make it classify as nonalcoholic. But many samples they have tested are coming up higher...up to 3% alcohol and even more...that's light beer territory. Which makes it, by law, alcoholic. And each of those bottles is 2 servings. There are many people who have talked about getting a kombucha buzz.

Now, I personally don't think she's drinking the tea to get a buzz. She's far too seasoned an addict for that small-time stuff. It seems pretty obvious that she's drinking it so that when she tests positive for blood alcohol after she's been sneaking real drinks she can use plausible deniability to explain away her dirty tests (which have happened...we'll hear about it). "B-b-b-but it must be this tea I drink all day. It has some alcohol in it."

Everybody in unison now: "It's NOT my fault!"

A huge F-you to the system. What else is new. Now i'm sure she'll say she had no idea that it had alcohol. She'll never get punished the way us mere mortals would but unfortunatly I feel she's destined to die a horrible death at a very young age due to her addictions. Tragic.

And Lindsay gives the court yet another FU: After giving her permission to leave CA in order to go to NY to visit her family, what does she do? Go out partying until 4 AM.

Does she seriously think the court hasn't heard about this? Does she really think her continuous FU's will fall on deaf ears? Really???

And Amy, thanks for your input on the alcohol level of Kombucha. And I agree with you, think LL is only drinking it so she can attempt to cover up the tracks drinking elsewhere. But it also looks like she may be busted. We shall see. I hope we get the chance to see the probation violation report.

Seeing how she's manipulating the system by drinking the tea, it's interesting to note how adept she is at doing this with drinking, just as she is highly adept at manipulating the system regarding her theft as well. She is a very, very manipulative young women, it would seem. It was evident in her,"your honor, I'm taking this case very seriously but I can't be put away because I need to work," act while she was sporting an FU on her fingernail. This girl totally, totally knows how to manipulate things on so many levels so that she can "win."

Only, what the hell is she really winning? A chance of a lifetime to live as a hardened criminal? Cirrhosis of the liver? A chance to be a complete alcoholic train wreck as life passes her by? I know that she can't see it but by God, her mother should be able to and yet she continues to allow her daughter to fall into this personal hell. What a terrible person Dina is.

Andyconda, I don't see being gay as an illness, nor do I think that's the cause of LL's problems, although I DO think that Sam must be as troubled as LL, since she hangs around her so much, and dates then dumps her.

People... Kombucha tea is not alcohol! It does not taste like alcohol, it will not get you drunk, it will do nothing like that for you at ALL. It's a Japanese health drink, made out of a fermented mushroom type of thing. The alcohol content is so miniscule that it's not even an issue and not listed on any packaging. Come on.
