Lindsay Lohan's Probation Revoked

ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan's probation has been revoked again.

The 26-year-old actress was arraigned in California Wednesday on misdemeanor charges for lying to police, driving recklessly and obstructing an officer from doing his duties after she crashed her Porsche on the Pacific Coast Highway in June.

Commissioner Jane Godfrey revoked Lohan's informal probation from her 2011 necklace theft case and set a probation violation hearing for Jan. 15.  If Godfrey decides Lohan did violate her probation, she could face 245 days in jail.

Lohan did not appear in court.  She was represented by her longtime lawyer Shawn Holley, who did not respond to ABC News' requests for comment.

Lohan's legal troubles boiled over again last month.  She was arrested on Nov. 29 after a New York City bar brawl in which she allegedly punched a Palm Beach psychic.  She faces a misdemeanor assault charge in that case.

Later that day, she was charged with three misdemeanors from the Porsche crash.

Lindsay Lohan Skips Plans to Travel Overseas; Faces Probation Revocation

ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan has abandoned plans to travel overseas with Max George of The Wanted, sources tell E!.

Despite rumors that they are a couple, George and Lohan are not officially dating.

A source tells E!, “All they are doing is hanging out.”  The pair has reportedly even stopped following each other on Twitter.

In other Lohan news, the troubled actress may soon be heading to jail.  Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that when Lohan is arraigned on Wednesday for allegedly lying to police and reckless driving in connection with a car accident in Santa Monica, Calif., last June, the judge may revoke her probation from her conviction for stealing a necklace from a jewelry store in February 2011.

It's not known if Lohan will be in court Wednesday.  She is not required to attend.  If the judge revokes her probation, a formal booking date will be scheduled.

And even if Lohan is found not guilty in the car accident case, the judge has the authority to rule she violated her probation because the standard of proving a violation is much lower than proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, which is required in a criminal matter.

TMZ reports prosecutors have already filed paperwork asking the court to have Lohan's probation revoked.
