Oh Lindsay, your whole life should be put under one, big probation. After being arrested twice within a matter of months for possessing cocaine, transporting narcotics, and driving under the influence of drugs, the party-riddled star was given three years probation. However, Lohan violated her probation on May 20, 2010, when she chose to go yachting in Cannes instead of attending her mandatory court hearing. On July 6, Lohan was charged with missing nine mandatory court-ordered alcohol classes during her probation period and will be serving 90 days in prison as well as a 90-day inpatient rehabilitation program starting July 20. The actress went on to become a regular in the court system with additional trips to rehab, stints in jail and house arrest and that whole felony necklace theft debacle.
