Lindsay Lohan is Wanted...By the Beverly Hills Police

Yesterday, the Beverly Hills Police Department issued an arrest warrant for actress Lindsay Lohan, according to the Huffington Post. The BHPD released this statement last night:

In response to media inquiries, [the] Beverly Hills Police Department is confirming a warrant was in fact issued today [March 13] for the arrest of Lindsay Lohan. 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.

Back in 2007, Lohan was taken in twice, and "pleaded no contest to being under the influence of cocaine, driving with a blood-alcohol level above 0.08 percent and reckless driving," according to Part of her plea deal stipulated that she be on probation for 36 months, do 10 days of community service, complete an 18-month alcohol education program, and spend 24 hours in jail (she spent a whopping 84 minutes in jail).

The warrant may be because Lohan missed a meeting with her probation officer or did not take a mandatory drug test. Which, of course, could be hard to remember to do when your time is booked up partying at bars, fighting with your DJ girlfriend in Vegas, and selling tanning spray.
