Lindsay's Ankle Bracelet Goes Off -- Bum Equipment

6/2/2011 10:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's electronic monitoring bracelet went off Monday, indicating she left the house and therefore violated the terms of her house arrest ... but sources say it could be the result of a malfunction.

Probation staffers went to Lindsay's Venice house, only to find her on the roof of the building sunning herself and reading scripts.  One source connected with the case tells TMZ ... it looks like the device may have "missed a signal." Translation: Lindsay didn't leave the house and therefore didn't cheat.

Sources tell us the Probation people gave Lindsay new monitoring equipment and that was that.

The Probation Department has not formally closed the matter, but one source connected with the case tells TMZ ... "It looks like it's been resolved."

@miss mary

the bracelet doesn't detect for alcohol. it's strictly a location monitor.

It's just a matter of time before she violates her probation. She doesn't have enough brain cells left to tell her to stay home.

Does anybody really care about this "has-been-that-never-was"? NO! She probably sent TMZ the news so that she could get some sort of press out of this since she is confined to her house and cannot go out and have her picture taken and she is in WITHDRAWL for some sort attention at this point! What a TRAINWRECK! I am so ROOTING FOR EMMA STONE to take over roles the Lohan might've been/being considered for, she is a much more deserving human being than Lohan!

I consider sunning and reading a vacation...not house arrest! They should make her contribute to society for her punishment- go dig a ditch or pick up trash on the highway----sheesh!

It's general for her to violate probation. She has no idea about it too. Probably she was in pinic too. She loves vodka I think. @ Miss Mary.

She loves pushing the limits of what she can get away with. It'll happen again. And then they'll know it wasn't a malfunction. (Doesn't sound like they are positive it was this time.)

@ Alan Carver

This has nothing to do with Lindsay giving TMZ any info. It was first reported by the LA Times and they said the same thing...Bum Equipment! But TMZ can't resist posting BS about Lindsay, its how they get their hits/quota hits/money!!

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

I thought she wasn't allowed on the roof, had to be confined to the "interior" of the house? In the car, the news said when probation arrived she was on the couch, watching TV and "reading scripts" So TMZ, which is it?

House arrest in a house large enough to make the ankle bracelet loses its signal. Lol. Quite plausible actually, especially if there was a lot of metal between her and the base station.
