Lindsay Lohan admits failing random drugs test

Monday September 20, 2010

Lindsay Lohan has admitted failing a random drugs test – and could now face up to 30 days in jail.

The 24-year-old actress (pictured on Friday) was recently released from rehab after serving two weeks behind bars for violating probation on drug and driving charges. After leaving the facility, she was ordered to undergo regular testing.

"Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test," Lindsay said on her Twitter page.

"Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away overnight. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps forward every day.

"This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I'm prepared to face the consequences."

Lindsay also said she's ready to go back before Superior Court Judge Elden Fox, the new judge in her case, who had previously warned that a dirty drugs test would be met with a month jail sentence.

In light of this news, concerns have been raised about Lindsay new film, Inferno.

The movie is due to shoot in Louisiana.  But if Judge Fox refuses to give Lindsay permission to travel, the location may have to change, radically altering the budget.
