Lohan sported an ugly, alcohol-monitoring ankle bracelet that came with tough restrictions on her probation that could cut into her career plans.

(AP, Beverly Hills) Lindsay Lohan left court Monday with a heavy new piece of jewelry, but it wasn’t her favorite kind of bling.

Lohan sported an ugly, alcohol-monitoring ankle bracelet that came with tough restrictions on her probation that could cut into her career plans.

The measures were ordered after Lohan angered Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel by failing to show up for a hearing last week in Beverly Hills and instead attended the Cannes Film Festival in France.

Photos from Cannes showed the actress partying on a yacht into the late hours on the day she was supposed to be in court in Beverly Hills.

A bench warrant was issued for her arrest then lifted when her lawyer posted bail and Lohan flew back to the United States over the weekend.

Lohan’s lawyer said the actress had her passport stolen in Canne and couldn’t travel in time to attend the hearing.

Lohan, wearing a dark gray pants suit, arrived in court a few minutes late and appeared somber and concerned when she conferred with her attorney about the move to attach the bracelet and require drug and alcohol testing every week in the Los Angeles area.

The bracelet gets a signal through the skin if a person has been drinking and sends the signal to the company that monitors it, court spokesman Alan Parachini said.

Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, told Judge Revel that Lohan was planning to travel to Texas to film a movie titled “Machete.”

Revel suggested the actress might have to delay the project and was unmoved when Holley suggested Lohan could fulfill the probation requirements in Texas.
