Lohan hauled off in cuffs as her probation revoked

LINDSAY Lohan sported a new accessory after a judge revoked her probation: handcuffs.

The actress was taken into custody after Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner revoked her probation because she was ousted from a community service assignment at a women's shelter.

"There has been violation after violation," Sautner said.

Bail was set at $100,000 (€73,000). Lohan's spokesman Steve Honig said it was immediately posted and the actress was later released from Airport Courthouse.

"We're dealing with someone on probation," said Lohan's attorney, Shawn Holley. "Most people on probation don't always do things perfectly."

A city prosecutor recommended jail time, but Sautner set a November 2 hearing to decide whether Lohan should serve another stint behind bars, where she has been sent four previous times only to be released early due to overcrowding.
