    Lindsay Lohan a Free Woman; Warrant Dropped

    Lindsay Lohan can breathe a little easier now.

    After the star's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, arrived at a Beverly Hills courthouse early this morning for a meeting with Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel, they emerged around 8:55 a.m. and announced that Friday's $50,000 warrant relating to her May 2007 DUI arrest was wiped clear.

    "This was really much ado about nothing," Holley told reporters. "As I indicated over the weekend, there was just a misunderstanding. Ms. Lohan has been in compliance [with the terms of her probation] and she continues to be in compliance."

    "Ms. Lohan has been complying with certain aspects of the program that the program was unaware of," Revel told reporters. She also wished to clarify that the actress had not had any "dirty tests," and that was not the cause of the warrant.

    The judge said the court received a letter of noncompliance from the star's court-ordered alcohol treatment program, but later discovered that the star simply had not shown proof of such compliance.

    Revel added that from now on it is the 22-year-old starlet's responsibility to show proof that she is following court orders so that this doesn't happen again.

    Holley said the misunderstanding occurred because Lohan had been on one treatment program for a long period of time and then enrolled in another, but there were "personality issues there." She claims she had been "nothing but forthcoming in terms of what she had been doing to satisfy the conditions of the program and probation."

    Lohan was put on three years' probation after pleading guilty to five misdemeanor drunken-driving and cocaine charges in 2007.

    E! News also learned that Lohan will be enrolling in a new program and is required to provide proof of enrollment in the new program by April 3.

    Holley also indicated that the constant speculation over the warrant had a somewhat negative impact on the actress, who spent most of Saturday and Sunday holed up inside girlfriend Samantha Ronson's Hollywood Hills home.
