Lindsay Lohan to Wear Wear Alcohol-Monitoring Bracelet...

Lindsay Lohan is known globally for her fashion sense, but she will be sporting a new accessory on her ankle and it's not a trend she is trying to start. At her Los Angeles court hearing Monday, Li Lo was ordered to wear an alcohol-monitoring bracelet, called a SCRAM device. Perhaps uber-hot designer Marc Jacobs can design it for her so it goes with her many outfits?
In addition to her knew arm candy, Lohan will also be subject to weekly random drug testing and is forbidden from drinking any alcohol as conditions for her to remain free on bail. Oh the humanity? What will La Lohan do if she can't party her ass off?
At yesterday's court appearance, the oft-troubled actress showed up look demure, wearing a black business suit with her hair slicked into a ponytail. She was accompanied by her attorney Shawn Chapman Holley. She was 10 minutes late to the scheduled 8:30 AM hearing, but L.A. Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel accepted the attorney's explanation that the delay was due to security concerns caused by the media crowd outside the courthouse. Or maybe it was her stolen passport? Did someone steal her driver's license? I have to admit I am skeptical of any of Lohan's excuses.
After Judge Revel set the conditions, Lindsay's attorney said her client "is prepared to demonstrate by action that she's going to comply with all court orders." Suuuure she is!
But Holley added that Lindsay has "an upcoming number of photo shoots" and was due to begin filming in Texas for an upcoming movie role and asked that in lieu of the ankle bracelet, Lindsay be subject to random alcohol testing as well since the device would interfere with filming. "It would allow her to make a living," Holley explained. The judge flat out denied the request. Props to the judge! Make it work, LiLo! Show that ingenuity! And realize you are like the rest of us and have to follow the rules.
This will be the second time Lindsay has worn the device. She voluntarily wore one three years ago following her first DUI arrest and a stint in rehab.
Is Lohan beyond any sort of help and return to a normal life?
