US starlet Lindsay Lohan has bailed out of jail where she spent only about 15 hours for failing another court-ordered drug test, a celebrity website reported.
The 24-year-old was led from a court in handcuffs Friday morning — the third time in as many years — after Judge Elden Fox of the Beverly Hills Superior Court found evidence Lohan was guilty of substance abuse.
Fox denied bail to Lohan after she tested positive for cocaine in a court-ordered test, but was later reversed by a superior who set bail at 300,000 dollars.
Celebrity website TMZ said the actress, once seen as a budding Hollywood star, was released shortly before midnight from the Century Regional Detention Facility in the Lynwood suburb of Los Angeles after posting bail.
The “Mean Girls” star had originally faced up to 30 days in jail. She is due back in court on October 22 to determine whether she violated her probation from an earlier sentence by testing positive for drugs. Lohan must also wear an ankle bracelet that will monitor her blood alcohol content.
Lohan was sentenced on July 6 to serve 90 days in jail and another 90 days in rehab for violating her probation in a drunk-driving case.
