Sometime after Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, the SCRAM bracelet strapped to Lindsay Lohan's leg generated an alarm report to law enforcement officials that there had been a violation, TMZ is reporting.

"Judge Marsha Revel has just issued a bench warrant for her arrest" this afternoon, the gossip site adds, indicating that the SCRAM alarm is why Lohan is now a "wanted woman."

For much of this afternoon Lohan has been posting to her Twitter account angrily that the SCRAM alarm reports are all false. "My scram wasn't set off-Its physically impossible considering I've nothing for it to go off-All of these false resports [sic] are absolutely wrong," she said, adding "This is all because of a FALSE accusation by tabloids& paparazzi& it is fucking digusting- I've been more than I'm compliance &feeling great."

Lohan is pointing to something a friend put on her during an after party to explain the false reports: "It's from the light up bracelet Johnny put on me-also, they can check probation records for alcohol as i got tested YESTERDAY," she replied to at least two people on Twitter.

Her response to someone telling her there was a warrant issued for her arrest was a simple: "What?"

*UPDATE: The warrant has been recalled. Lohan's bail bondsman has posted $20,000 bail for the actress to keep her out of jail, TMZ reports.
