Actress Lindsay Lohan avoided arrest when her representatives posted part of a 200,000-dollar bail after an alcohol bracelet detected that she had been drinking, dpa reported.
A judge first issued a new arrest warrant for Lohan, the star of such movies as Mean Girls and Freaky Friday, and then revoked it after bail was posted, People Magazine reported Tuesday. A new hearing is scheduled for July.

Lohan was fitted with the bracelet last month as part of her probation after two convictions of drunk driving.
In posts on the microblogging site Twitter, Logan denied that her bracelet had gone off. "It's physically impossible, considering I've nothing for it to go off," she wrote.
