Hollywood star Lindsay Lohan lost a bid to relax restrictions involving drug and alcohol testing so she can attend a film shoot in Texas.

Appearing in a Beverly Hills court on Tueday, the actress was ordered to wear an alcohol-monitoring bracelet, despite her attorney saying it would interfere with photo shoots and her filming schedule, reports The Daily Mail, London.

Lohan appeared before a judge after missing a probation hearing last week relating to a 2007 drink-driving case.



The Mean Girls star looked sombre as she conferred with her attorney about the plan for attaching an alcohol-monitoring bracelet to her ankle and requiring drug testing every week in the Los Angeles area.

It is understood Lohan is due to be in Texas for commitments relating to the film Machete, a Robert Rodriguez film that co-stars Jessica Alba and Robert DeNiro.

But Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel suggested the 23-year-old star would have to delay her involvement in the project.




Her attorney said the sanctions would interfere with Lohan's filming schedule, but the judge said the actress would have to delay her working commitments

Lohan, who was wearing a dark grey suit, was told she had violated her probation and the judge scheduled a new hearing in July to determine possible further sanctions.

The Hollywood actress, who agreed to the conditions, claimed she lost her passport in France last week, preventing an earlier return to Los Angeles for the May 20 hearing she missed.



Lohan arrived in the Los Angeles area on Saturday after a flight from Europe, where she spent a few days at the Cannes Film Festival and was partying into the early hours on the day she was supposed to be in court.

Judge Revel said Lohan had failed to complete alcohol education classes imposed as part of a 2007 sentence for reckless driving, drunken driving and driving under the influence of cocaine.

Revel warned Lohan last October that she risked going to jail unless she took the matter seriously.
