Lohan's probation revoked

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan's probation has been revoked.

The 26-year-old actress was arraigned today on charges of stemming from her June 8 car crash in Santa Monica, California.

The Mean Girls star is charged with reckless driving, obstructing or resisting a police officer in the performance of his duty and giving false information to a police officer after crashing her rented Porsche on the Pacific Coast Highway.

Court Commissioner Jane Godfrey revoked Lindsay's informal probation from her 2011 necklace theft case as a result of the misdemeanour charges, ABC News reports.

Prosecutors asked that bail be set but the commissioner did not deem it necessary.

A hearing has been set for January 15 to determine if Lindsay did violate her probation.

She could face up to 245 days in jail.

Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Holley, told the court they will fight the probation violation.

The actress did not appear in court.

Lindsay was also arrested on November 29 after allegedly hitting partygoer Tiffany Eve Mitchell in the face at a New York City nightclub.

She faces a charge of misdemeanour assault in that case.
