Attorney Calls Lindsay Lohan Arrest Warrant A 'Misunderstanding'

Lindsay Lohan (photosLindsay Lohan photos)'s attorney says an arrest warrant issued that has been issued for the actress, stemming from a 2007 DUI conviction, has been "born out of a misunderstanding."

"Since her case was resolved, Ms. Lohan has been in compliance with all the terms and conditions of her probation and all orders of the court," says Lohan's lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley. "The warrant issued on Friday was, in our view, born out of a misunderstanding which I am confident I can clear up next week."

"We are not actively looking for Ms. Lohan at this time," says Beverly Hills Police Lt. Mark Rosen said at a Saturday press conference.

"But if she comes in contact with police, she's subject to arrest. As for why we're not actively looking for her, that's not our procedure for this type of warrant. Her attorney is hoping to resolve this issue in the coming week. If it's not resolved, I'm sure we'll negotiate her voluntary surrender."

A hearing for Lindsay Lohan is set for Monday morning in a Beverly Hills court. The 22-year-old is currently serving a three-year probation term for the DUI incident two years ago in which she ran her Mercedes-Benz off the road on Sunset Blvd and hit a tree.

It's reported that officials at the alcohol education program Lohan was supposed to attend alerted police she wasn't complying and that is the catalyst for the arrest warrant.

Lindsay was jailed for 84 minutes in November 2007 after pleading guilty to two misdemeanor counts of being under the influence of cocaine, no contest to two counts of driving with a blood-alcohol level above .08 percent and one count of reckless driving.

She was warned that if she violated her probation she could face up to a year in jail on each of the charges.

UPDATE 03/16:

The Lindsay Lohan arrest warrant has been quashed after a Beverly Hills judge ruled she had not violated her probation.
