Judge Issues Arrest Warrant for Lindsay Lohan

To almost no one's surprise, Lindsay Lohan didn't show up for her DUI progress report hearing in Los Angeles this morning. Lindsay is currently at the Cannes Film Festival in France and the 23-year-old actress claims her passport was stolen and that she was therefore unable to attend.

Lindsay has a history of no-shows or arriving late to past court apperances and Judge Marsha Revel was not amused. She has issued a warrant for Lindsay's arrest and if Lohan makes her $100,000 bail she will have to refrain from drinking alcohol until she has a formal probation hearing, be fitted for a SCRAM device (alcohol monitoring) once she returns from France, and undergo random drug testing at least once a week.

Lindsay was convicted of drunk driving charges in 2007 and was ordered to complete alcohol education classes. She hasn't done so and that was the reason for today's hearing.

Never one to miss out on a chance to capitalize on his daughter's fame, Lindsay's father Michael attended the hearing and considers the ruling a victory.

Thanks to TMZ for the live video streaming of the court hearing and the following press conference held by her lawyer (and her father's).
