Lindsay Lohan back in Court over failed drug test

Lindsay Lohan was back in a Los Angeles court last Friday after she admitted to failing a drug test.

The 24-year old actress was immediately reported to jail, after Judge Elden Fox denied the star bail and did not hear testimony from her lawyers. Lohan was reportedly handcuffed in court before being taken into custody, meaning she could be behind bars until the next hearing, scheduled for October 22.

Lohan admitted to failing her recent drug test, saying she was still struggling with the addiction.

"Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result," Lohan said on Twitter late Friday night. "Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn't go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps forward every day.

Lohan made a stylish appearance at her court hearing. She wore a long black blazer over a high-waisted white skirt and black top and, as well as Christian Louboutin platform stiletto heels.

According to the conditions of her post-rehab release, Judge Fox could send Lohan back to jail for 30 days.

Lohan was last sentenced to 90 days in jail in July over a probation violation from a pair of 2007 DUI cases; she subsequently spent 23 days in a rehab facility. Lohan served less than one third of her 90-day court-ordered sentence.
