Another TMZ Exclusive Found To Be Exclusively Incorrect
It is sometimes hard to keep up with all the “exclusives” published by the gossip site TMZ (our favorite was the one about how Tiger Woods had to leave a driving range because it began raining). Yesterday’s fusillade of Lindsay Lohan scoops included the authoritative news that she would “not have to spend the next 30 days in jail,” according to “sources connected with the case.”
“So here's the way it will go down,” the site confidently explained, noting that Judge Elden Fox would set a probation violation hearing, remand Lohan, and immediately set bail, which would allow the actress to post bond and “walk out a free woman.” Since Fox is likely not on the TMZ dole, it’s unclear how the site magically divined his plans re: Lohan.
The Los Angeles jurist, of course, this morning revoked the actress’s bail and ordered her jailed until an October 22 probation hearing.
