Los Angeles - The controversial actress was escorted from a Los Angeles courtroom and taken into custody on Thursday after a judge revoked her probation - but the 25-year-old star's representative Steve Honig confirmed she has posted her $100 000 bail.

Lindsay's probation was revoked by LA County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner after she encountered problems during some of her court-ordered probation requirements, which were issued as part of her sentence for stealing a $2 500 necklace in January.

The actress is now facing another trial on November 2 to see if she violated her probation, and if she is found guilty it could see her sentenced to 18 months in jail.


Steve said: "Lindsay is hoping this matter will be resolved on November 2 and the court will reinstate probation and allow her to continue fulfilling her community service."

Sautner explained Lindsay "blew off" the 360 hours of community service she was supposed to complete at Downtown Women's Centre, where she is thought to have missed nine appointments.

The judge said: "Miss Lohan's actions deliberately made it impossible to complete her community service at the Downtown Women's Center... I certainly find that cause to revoke probation."

Lindsay has been ordered to spend two days a week of her 120 hours community service at the Los Angeles County Morgue.
