Lindsay Lohan's Attorney Says Actress Didn't Steal Necklace
Lindsay Lohan's lawyer said that her client did not steal a $2,500 necklace and she would fight any charges if they are filed, The Associated Press reports.
"We vehemently deny these allegations and, if charges are filed, we will fight them in court, not in the press," her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, said Saturday.
Lindsay Lohan under investigation for theft of $2,500 necklace
Kamofie & Co., a custom jewelry store in Venice, Calif., reported that the "one of a kind" necklace was stolen on Jan. 22. Lohan, 24, was released from court-ordered rehab at the Betty Ford Center three weeks prior.
Police obtained a search warrant Tuesday to try to get back the necklace from Lohan's house, but the item was turned in to detectives before the warrant could be executed.
Police: Lindsay Lohan committed battery, violated probation
Lohan — who is still on probation — was sent to jail twice last year for violating her probation, which stems back to a 2007 drunken driving case. Riverside County prosecutors are also considering charging Lohan with battery for a December altercation with a Betty Ford Center employee. She was ordered to go to rehab for three months after she admitted to failing a drug test in September.
Lohan is due in court Feb. 25 for a probation hearing.
