A month ago, I was surprised by Great Britain’s new Drinking Ban Order. The restriction feels like a little too much government control of our personal lives. But I guess the United States has similar authority to impose draconian restrictions on legal activity — at least if you are a celebrity with a known history of
making terrible movies drunk driving.
A Los Angeles judge put some alcohol related conditions on Lindsay Lohan’s bail application stemming from a 2007 drunk driving charge. Apparently, Lohan now needs to be collared like a dog…
CNN reports that Lohan has temporarily lost her right to drink:
A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge outlined new bail conditions for Lindsay Lohan at a hearing Monday, including a bracelet to detect alcohol, a ban on drinking and random weekly drug testing.
Lohan must also attend all of her alcohol classes as scheduled, unless the class interferes with her random drug tests, Judge Marsha Revel said.
Alcohol detecting bracelet? They have those now? O brave new world that has such people in’t.
It looks like Lohan has tested the patience of Judge Revel for the last time:
Revel has a reputation as a lenient and even jovial judge until a defendant tests her authority.
Revel told Lohan during her court appearance in October that although she wanted Lohan to have her career, the actress could not “thumb your nose” at the court.
Hey, there are other things Lohan could thumb at the court. Let’s all be happy that we’re just dealing with her nose.
