“In response to media inquiries, [the] Beverly Hills Police Department is confirming a warrant was in fact issued for the arrest of Lindsay Lohan,” said department spokesman Lt. Mark Rosen.
“The $50,000 warrant issued by the Beverly Hills Superior Court stems from a May 2007 arrest of Miss Lohan for DUI and hit-and-run. The circumstances leading to the issuance of the warrant by the court are not readily available at this time. It is our hope that Miss Lohan will surrender herself so that this matter will be resolved in a timely manner.”
In May 2007, Lindsay was busted for driving under the influence after losing control of her car and running up a curb. Police found cocaine in her car and lab tests showed the drug in her system. After a stint in a treatment center, she was arrested for drunken driving on July 24, 2007.
After pleading guilty in August 2007, Lohan was sentenced to one day in jail and placed on probation for three years.
