Chikezie, a former top 12 contestant on the hit series American Idol has had a bench warrant issued for his arrest.
The 25-year-old singer was arrested last year for attempting to buy cologne with a phony credit card and then failed to show up for a court hearing in Los Angeles on January 14 of this year.
Judge Marsha Revel immediately revoked Chikezie’s probation after he failed to appear in front of her, leading to the arrest warrant being issued.
At this time Chikezie’s people are not commenting, but we have a feeling the matter will be dealt with quickly, after all, who wants to go toMore >
(HMG) – Lindsay Lohan is officially a free woman. She was released from rehab at UCLA’s Neuropsychiatric Hospital late on Tuesday afternoon after spending only 23 days there. She checked into the facility immediately after serving 13-14 days in jail for violating probation in a 2007 DUI case. A prosecutor and Lindsay Lohan’s attorney Shawn Chapman Holley, are due in court today to discuss the next steps. Lohan, 24, is not required to attend the hearing, court officials said. But she’ll reportedly have to submit to random drug and alcohol testing until August 2011. There is at least oneMore >
She already got special treatment in jail. Now Lindsay Lohan could get an early release from UCLA Medical Center as well, if the new judge in her case grants it.
Judge Marsha Revel, who recused herself from the case this week, ordered Lindsay to spend 90 days in lockdown at UCLA for psychiatric and drug treatment.
However, the inpatient program she’s in typically lasts 45 days.
When the program ends, new judge Elden Fox could release Lindsay from UCLA and place her in outpatient care. The question is whether that’s likely to happen.
It’s “not uncommon” for a patient to repeat a program,More >
If there’s a time for a correctional facility to release a high-profile inmate while attracting as little attention as possible, it’s 1:35 a.m. on a Monday morning.
That’s when Lindsay Lohan was let out of jail in Lynwood, Calif., today. In the end, the star served a whopping 13 of her 90-day sentence in a solitary cell.
She was taken to UCLA Medical Center to begin rehab treatment.
“She was released at 1:35 a.m.,” L.A. Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said. “She has been sent directly to her next destination, a treatment center.”
Lohan’s sentence was cut drastically due to good behaviorMore >
Lindsay Lohan’s fellow Lynwood Correctional Facility inmates give Mean Girls a whole new meaning. Most of the women housed near LiLo are killers.
As in people actually doing time for murder.
Lohan expressed fears of being housed with these inmates since being thrown in jail two days ago, but has not received any special treatment yet.
She did enjoy some slightly less reprehensible company yesterday, though, when she was paid a visit by her mother, Dina, and her little sister Ali.
“Tears were shed,” a source close to the family said. “The visit was very emotional, but Lindsay’s spirits wereMore >
Famed defense attorney Robert Shapiro took on Lindsay Lohan’s case last week on the condition that she follows the judge’s orders and reports to jail.
He seemed like just what she needed, but shockingly, Shapiro stepped away Monday for unknown reasons after meeting with Judge Marsha Revel.
The troubled star, who is said to be living in denial, is due to be formally sentenced this morning in court for violating the terms of her DUI probation.
At least she seems in relatively good spirits.
“The only ‘bookings’ that i’m familiar with are Disney Films, never thought that I’d be ‘booking’ intoMore >
Robert Shapiro has said in no uncertain terms that Lindsay Lohan will do time. But the troubled actress apparently didn’t get the memo from her own attorney.
The lawyer, one of the “Dream Team” who successfully defended O.J. Simpson, has not convinced her that she must surrender to a jail sentence, sources say.
This after he spoke publicly about how made it clear he would not appeal her recent sentence and would only rep her if she went to jail. That’s serious denial!
People close to Linds say she’s been in “obsessive denial” over her surrender Tuesday, when she must begin serving 90 daysMore >
Lindsay Lohan is moving in to a “sober living house,” according to TMZ. How that differs from rehab, we don’t know. But it’s clearly a preemptive strike.
Spotted entering the facility in West Hollywood, Lohan has already been visited by mother Dina, sister Ali and former lover Samanatha Ronson there.
What convinced her to go?
We’re guessing new attorney Robert Shapiro, who was hired by Lindsay to either reduce or eliminate her jail sentence, had everything to do with it.
By pushing rehab immediately and having her check in voluntarily, Shapiro is likely hoping Judge Marsha Revel will showMore >
Lindsay Lohan has legal problems galore, yet can’t seem to find a lawyer to rep her in the probation violation case that recently earned her a jail sentence.
Sources report that Lindsay and mom Dina have been interviewing potential lawyers like crazy but “They are suspicious of their (the lawyers’) motives.”
Those motives being that no attorney wants anything to do with the epic mess that is Lindsay Lohan – one lawyer even said as much earlier this week.
Interestingly, Lohan is now talking to former O.J. Simpson lawyer Robert Shapiro, but she has not retained him yet. That could be a goodMore >
“I’m not going to jail!” – Lindsay Lohan
The troubled star vows to appeal the 90-day jail sentence Judge Marsha Revel handed down, according to one source who was with her on Wednesday night.
Linds was talking with people in her apartment about appealing the case, and uttered the above quote. Not only a spoiled brat, but also delusional, apparently.
The only real basis for an appeal would be arguing that Judge Revel abused her discretion in nailing her with a 90-day sentence, which was a tad extreme.
Lindsay Lohan deserves what she got yesterday.
She cried, begged for mercy and appeared contrite when Judge Marsha Revel handed down a 90-day jail sentence and gave her until July 20 to turn herself in.
(HMG) – Judge Marsha N. Revel has ruled Tuesday that Lindsay Lohan violated the terms of her probation when she failed to comply with the weekly attendance directive for alcohol education classes in a drunk driving case and then sentenced her to 90 days in prison. Judge Revel did not use the SCRAM bracelet alarm incident at the MTV Movie Awards as a basis for deciding but did state several instances over the last few years in which the actress lied about taking drugs and drinking. The case dates all the back to 2007, when Lohan was charged with DUI in two separate incidents.
“It’s likeMore >
The D.A. in Lindsay Lohan’s probation case has a new target: Eleonore Lieven.
Lohan’s former assistant, who up and quit on the actress earlier this month after some tumultuous months trying to stop a slow-moving train wreck, may be called to court as a key witness in the case that could pit the boss against her former employee.
“The district attorney is interested in Eleonore,” a source said. “At the very least, an investigator from the D.A.’s office will be making contact with Lieven.”
A decision has yet to be made, but if she is called to testify, sources say “it could be very explosiveMore >
When Lindsay Lohan’s SCRAM ankle monitor went off, we assumed she was drinking or tampering with it. Yet her lawyer swears a test proves she was clean.
On the flip side, Judge Marsha Revel revoked Lindsay’s bail immediately, issued a bench warrant and set the actress/train wreck’s bail at another $100,000.
Why would she do that if Lohan were so clean?
The legitimacy of Lindsay’s latest test, cited by her lawyer as proof that she is “doing great at being clean and sober,” has obviously drawn some skepticism.
Yesterday, Radar Online reported that Lindsay’s blood-alcohol level was betweenMore >
Despite the SCRAM device that currently adorns her ankle, Lindsay Lohan is actually able to drink and stay out of jail all she wants … just at a steep price.
Think five figures per cocktail.
The bail bondsman who saved her ass Tuesday, David Perez, told TMZ in an interview that Lohan didn’t really forfeit her $100,000 bail as we first reported.
