LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lindsay Lohan has confirmed on her Twitter page that she failed a court-ordered drug and alcohol screening, and she said that if asked, she is ready to appear before the judge in her case and face the consequences for her actions.

Lindsay Lohan Tweets About Failed Drug Test: KNX 1070’s Bill Cooper Reports

In a series of messages posted late Friday, the actress said “Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test.”

She also said, “Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it.”

A person familiar with the case, who declined to be identified because of the sensitivity of the matter, confirmed the positive test results for The Associated Press earlier Friday. The person declined to specify what substance triggered the positive result, which the source said occurred within the last month.

The failed drug test was first reported by TMZ.com.

The test result could mean a probation violation and more jail time for the 24-year-old actress. In July, Lohan was sentenced to three months in jail followed by three months in rehab after violating probation stemming from a pair of drug and driving under the influence cases filed after two arrests in 2007.

She ended up serving two weeks in jail and another 23 days in an inpatient rehab treatment at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.

At a hearing last month, Fox ordered the actress to attend psychotherapy, drug and alcohol counseling as well as random drug and alcohol testing several times a week. Compliance would allow her to return to unsupervised probation in November.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden S. Fox had threatened Lohan with 30 days in jail for each probation violation.

A hearing would be conducted before Lohan could be returned to jail. Los Angeles County District Attorney spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said no such hearing had been scheduled as of Friday afternoon.

    Ha Ha Ha! Couldn’t have happened to a worse person!

  3. Astonished says:

    And how is this surprising? Just lock her away and have her do the time like the rest of us would be.

  4. Natalie says:

    What a waste of time! She needs to go to Jail like anyone else in her case would. Pathetic!

  5. MC says:

    Drunk driving is one thing, that’s bad enough after your first conviction.
    but the Coke conviction is nothing to play around with. She needs to learn a lesson or she will find her bottom. Just the rest of the world!

    1. MC says:

      Maybe she needs to find her bottom, just like the rest off the worlld?

  6. ReginaM says:

    Poor Lindsay. No sarcasm intended, on a downward spiral to abject dependency.

  7. Joan Smith says:

    …and to all those that believed she had some OTHER problem other than drug additiction going on… I have only one word for you… QUACK!

    These so called authorities or professionals are the only one that fell for the act.
    yeah, we got to admit she’s a good actress, give her her props

    Although she hasn’t reached the lows that Robert Downey Jr. did, it is time for Ms. Lohan to be given the Downey penalty….put her in a real prison instead of the jail and she will find that Mommy can’t sleep over with her to keep her company and what the real world goes through.

    “Substance abuse is a disease…” she pretends for a living and is using this to get sympathy. Nobody forced these substances down her throat — grow up!

    I think the SWAT team should pick her up at 4am.
