Arrest warrant issued for Lohan

Lindsay Lohan has been ordered to appear in court on Friday after she failed a drug test.

An arrest warrant for the 24-year-old has been issued and the actress is now facing possible jail time for violating her probation.

Officials at Los Angeles County Superior Court said a bench warrant was issued today for Lohan. However, authorities say Lohan won't be taken into custody pending the court hearing on Friday.

Lohan confirmed on her Twitter page last week that she failed a court-ordered drug and alcohol screening.

A judge had threatened her with 30 days in jail for each probation violation.

Lohan spent two weeks in jail earlier this year after violating probation stemming from convictions involving her 2007 arrests for drug use and driving under the influence.
