After being released from rehab in August, Lindsay Lohan is required to take random court-ordered drug tests and could be heading back to jail since last week she tested positive for one of these tests. Lindsay’s probation terms require her both to take and pass cocaine drug tests randomly.
After the press reported that Lindsay had a relapse, the actress denied that any of the sayings were true and that she hadn’t failed the test. On Friday, September 18, Lindsay Lohan used Twitter to confess that she had indeed failed her recent cocaine drug test.
‘Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result. This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I’m prepared to face the consequences,’ wrote Lohan in one of her tweets. The singer and actress also said that substance abuse can’t disappear overnight since it’s a serious disease and that she is still working hard to overcome it.
The court has yet to set a new hearing for Lindsay, but the law states that for each failed test the person that is on probation must carry a 30 days jail term.
