Did Paris Hilton steal Lindsay Lohan's passport, forcing her to stay abroad in France and miss her Beverly Hills court appearance today? That's one theory, at least posited by the media at a press conference this morning. No matter, Lohan apparently had her passport stolen while at the Cannes Film Festival, but Superior Court Judge Marsha N. Revel is not taking any excuses, according to the LA Times.

Lohan, who is on probation for a 2007 DUI conviction and is supposed to be taking alcohol treatment classes, was instructed to show up today -- it was mandatory because her probation was extended last year when she had not completed enough of the mandatory treatment classes. Today's hearing was to see if Lohan was on schedule with those classes.

Citing "probable cause" that Lohan may have violated her probation, Revel issued a bench warrant and an order not to drink any alcohol. Bail is set at $100,000. Lohan is expected to arrive in Los Angeles Friday on a temporary passport. Sheriff's Deputies are expected to cite and release her.
