Lindsay Lohan's probation has been revoked as the actress failed to appear in court on Wednesday.
The 'Liz & Dick' actress -- who failed to appear in court in Los Angeles on three misdemeanour charges, including lying to police about a traffic accident in the summer -- is facing 245 days in jail and a judge has scheduled a hearing for Jan. 15, 2013 to decide whether she will lock the actress away for violating her probation.
The 26-year-old troubled starlet was arraigned Wednesday morning on charges that she lied to police about being behind the wheel of a car when it crashed in June on the Pacific Coast Highway.
Lindsay has been on probation since being found guilty of stealing a necklace in July 2011, for which she was sentenced to 120 days in prison and 480 hours of community service.
According to gossip website TMZ.com, if found guilty the flame-haired beauty could be sentenced to jail for eight months.
The actress -- who has been arrested six times and spent 203 days in rehab -- was previously said to believe that police have a "vendetta to bring her down" because they were allegedly pushing for her to be jailed for lying about the crash.
Lindsay claimed she wasn't driving her Porsche during the accident, but several eyewitnesses insisted she was behind the wheel.
The 'Scary Movie 5' star is "terrified" of going back to jail because Judge Stephanie Sautner had warned her she would violate her current probation if she broke the law again.
She allegedly previously said: "One car accident could ruin everything for me."
