Lindsay Lohan is back in court trying to stay out of jail after allegedly failing an alcohol test last week (ends17Jun11).
The nervous actress, who has been under house arrest for the past month after violating her probation from a 2007 drink-driving case, arrived to court on time on Thursday morning (23Jun11), wearing a blue and white striped shirt and black trousers.
Officials at the Los Angeles County Probation Department have reportedly asked the judge in the case to cancel Lohan's house arrest, which was set to end next week (29Jun11) - and sentence her to jail.
According to reports, Lohan took two sobriety tests last week and failed one, which was conducted after the Mean Girls star threw a barbecue at her home in Venice, California.
Lohan began a 35-day house arrest term last month (May11) after she was accused of stealing a necklace from a jewellery store in Venice. She was originally sentenced to serve 120 days behind bars after pleading no contest to a misdemeanour charge, but her punishment was reduced to 35 days of home confinement due to jail overcrowding.
Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers insists the actress is not taking her sentence seriously and should not be having parties on her rooftop while under house arrest.
If the Probation Department officials get their way, Lohan could find herself behind bars on her 25th birthday on 2 July (11).
