Lindsay Lohan Goes to Jail and is DENIED bail! Good going!
It's about time that they system starts working for celebrities as it does for us common everyday folks.
Lindsay should be lucky because is some states she would be serving a jail sentence for quite some time.
But upon hearing todays decision I still wonder to myself what it would be like say if a minority celebrity say latin or
african american had done what Lohan has. Personally I think we'd be looking at a totally different thing. It happens
in sports all the time.
The 'Mean Girls' star rolled up to the Beverly Hills courthouse wearing a black top, white skirt and a smile. It was her first appearance before Judge Fox, who issued an arrest warrant earlier this the week to compel Lohan to appear. He previously outlined that he would sentence the actress to a month in jail if she failed a drug test. However, it was believed that unless Lohan requested immediate sentencing, the judge would set bail and release her until a formal probation hearing.
Instead, Fox denied bail and set Lohan's next court appearance for Oct. 22. According to reports, the shocked actress was handcuffed before being taken into custody.
The star's estranged father, Michael, spoke briefly following the hearing, saying the judge's decision was a "wake-up call" and that he was going to "pray" for his daughter's recovery. At the same time, he didn't seem to fault Judge Fox for the decision.
"The judge has to do what the judge has to do," he said.
