from Hollywood Today, Newsmagazine with Attitude
HOLLYWOOD, CA (RUSHPRNEWS) August 7, 2007â€” Actress Lindsay Lohan has entered an alcohol rehabilitation center for the third time this year following her arrest last month for cocaine and drunk-driving, but may have to leave in about two weeks. Read more at HollywoodToday.
Lohan faces a court hearing on August 24 over the two cases against her, a DUI from July and the cocaine possession/DUI last month. The 30-day rehab is in Utah, meaning she will have to take leave to attend court in Los Angeles. Her attorneys can press for a continuance, but since she already stalled her legal proceedings the last time in rehab after her first arrest, it would be questioned. And in the post-Paris era, celebrities are well-advised to tread lightly with judges.
The out-of-town rehab is a good idea according to observers since she quickly relapsed after a 45-stint at a local rehab, Promises in Malibu, where paparazzi camped out.
Lohan, 21, has checked into the Cirque Lodge drug and alcohol treatment center in Utah for an intensive 30-day program, TV show â€œThe Insiderâ€ reported.
The actress arrived at the facility over the weekend, â€œThe Insiderâ€ reported, citing sources within the facility. Lohanâ€™s representative Leslie Sloan was not immediately available to comment.
Lohan, the star of â€œGeorgia Ruleâ€ and â€œHerbie Fully Loaded,â€ was arrested in California for drunk-driving and drug charges on July 24, just days after completing a stint in rehab following an arrest in May on similar charges.
In January she was treated at the Wonderland Center in Los Angeles after reportedly being found passed out in a hotel corridor following the Golden Globes awards in Beverly Hills.
She later enrolled at the Promises center in Malibu after her May 26 arrest for drunk-driving and drug possession.
