The judge in Lindsay Lohan's DUI probation case issued a warrant for the actress' arrest Thursday morning, after Lohan did not return from the Cannes International Film Festival in time for a scheduled hearing - and then rescinded the order hours later after Lohan put up bail, The Associated Press reports.

Judge Marsha Revel of Los Angeles County Superior Court in Beverly Hills had revoked Lohan's probation and set bail at $100,000 when Lohan failed to appear.

The judge, saying Lohan "has a history of, from her prior alcohol program, not attending," said Lohan could remain free on bail until the next hearing, scheduled for Monday, provided she drinks no alcohol, wears a SCRAM (secure continuous remote alcohol-monitoring) bracelet and submits to random drug testing at least once a week.

Court spokesman Allan Parachini told AP a bond was posted for Lohan Thursday afternoon, and the warrant was recalled.

Lohan herself spent Wednesday night partying into the early morning, according to the AP, which said longtime paparazzi Phil Ramey photographed the actress on a yacht in the French Riviera. TMZ ran images of Lohan in sheer-black thigh-high stockings and high heels on the boat in Cannes Harbor.

Lohan's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, said Lohan would be back in the United States by this evening.

Revel had proven unswayed by that promise and by Holley's claim Lohan was absent due to her passport being stolen.

Police in Cannes, France, told Thursday that Lohan did not report a stolen passport to them, but there is no indication the judge was aware of this.

Lohan's mother and manager, Dina Lohan, told Newsday that Lindsay had her ticket and other paperwork.

Lindsay Lohan, who received a temporary passport Thursday, according to, e-mailed Us magazine late Thursday afternoon to say her estranged father Michael Lohan was behind the purloined passport.

"I always said my father had someone do it," she wrote.

Michael Lohan appeared at the scheduled hearing Thursday with his lawyer Lisa Bloom, who told Us that Lindsay "needs treatment, and jail is not going to help her."
