Lindsay Lohan admits failing drug test, may go to jail again
Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan Tweeted that she failed a court-ordered drug test, which could result in her being sent to jail again for 30 days, reports AFP via Yahoo News. According to People.com, Lohan was released from rehab on August 24 after she served almost two weeks in jail for her drunk-driving case. Judge Elden Fox warned her that failing a court-ordered drug test means she would be sent back to jail for a month.
Lohan, 24, Tweeted, "Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test. If I am asked, I am prepared to appear before Judge Fox next week. Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it, and I am taking positive steps forward every day. I am testing every single day and doing what I must do to prevent any mishaps in the future."
She added, "This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I’m prepared to face the consequences. I am so thankful for the support of my fans, loved ones and immediate family, who understand that I am trying hard and that I am a work in progress, just like anyone else."
