Lindsay Lohan: I'm being responsible

Regardless of how things may look, Lindsay Lohan says she's serious about turning her troubled situation around.

The 24-year-old – who walked away from a court appearance Thursday without jail timetold TMZ, "I am responsible, and I'm following the rules and obeying my judge and the Los Angeles judicial system."

TMZ adds that Lohan is reportedly blaming her failed test on tea, not the consumption of beer, wine or liquor.

The website refers to "friends" of Lohan’s who claim she’s told them it was kombucha tea. The company producing her beverage of choice says the drink's alcohol content is less than .05 percent.

As she’s told Life & Style and "Extra" in the past, Lohan says she’s still focused on putting in the work to get her career back on track. “I'd like to do what I must to get my film career back and the respect of directors, actors, writers, studio heads, fans and so on,” she told TMZ.

Although Lohan has a long list of legal trouble, she's avoided jail time for any longer than a few days. But according to Judge Stephanie Saunter, this recent incident wasn't a probation violation.

The judge ruled Thursday that it wasn't against Lohan's probation rules to drink and she didn't have to submit to testing, since the requirements for random drug and alcohol testing during her supervised probation expired back in February and weren't renewed. So while the judge found Lohan to be exhibiting "extremely poor judgement," bad decision-making isn't in violation of her probation.

Saunter did lay down one rule for the rest of Lohan's house arrest: "You are not to have parties," she told the star. "I am ordering it. You can have one friend at a time. That is it."

It's expected that Lohan, who turns 25 on July 2, will be released from house arrest in early July.

    I would say that I would be terribly embarrassed and feel as if I let my parents down if I behaved the way she does. But then, I remember who her parents are and it makes her behavior totally understandable. Children need boundaries...something that Michael and Dina Lohan never set for any of them...especially not the cash cow od the family. Children also learn by example and look at the mighty fine example they have set. Its no wonder she has so many issues. I actually feel sorry for her.

    How can Lindsey Lohan say shes being responsible? I dont even think she knows what the word means. What she needs to do is grow up and take responsibility and be put in jail.

    @ the person posing as me: can you at least try to be funny? For the record, i believe her when she says she is being responsible. I also believe in wishing on a star, honest politicians, and that women only marry the donald for his sparkling personality and dashing good looks. Right...

    The DA and the Probation Dept. have continued to try to put Ms. Lohan in jail because that is where she belongs. It is unfotunate that Ms. Lohan is being paid for commercials while in her jail overlooking the ocean. She has two DUI's that has put how many lives in danger? She has had more chances than any normal person would get. If or when she kills someone, I will blame her attorney, her parents and the judges because all of those people continue to enable her bad choices. Don't forget that she is a thief! the only reason that it wasn't a felony is because of value. Notice to all! You can steal from a jewelry store and you don't have to worry about what it sells for, you only need to have an expert explain that its not worth what they are selling it for. Wholesale/Retail? Great attorney again? I hope that when she fails that I am the arresting officer. Yes, me! I have arrested and testified against people that have done less and have gone to prison. Next time have a poppy seed bagel Ms. Lohan before a drug test so that something else is to blame for your positive test.

    This chick don't know from "responsible"! After the court appearance, straight to the liquor store! The judge busted her "tea" excuse, but because she's Lilo, she (the judge) wears "kid gloves" while taking her to task. These mixed messages helps Lilo do the wrong thing. She obviously thinks she's untouchable, & getting away with "murder"! I predict this will continue for years to come!!

      So why does she get to cut her home detention short? Sure I can see it if they are doing it for overcrowding in jails, but there is no overcrowding in her home. If she wants to get off early, then she should go to jail. If she wants home detention, she should do the full time.
