Judge revokes Lindsay Lohan probation

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A Los Angeles judge on Wednesday revoked the probation for troubled actress Lindsay Lohan because she failed perform community service, and set a new hearing to decide if Lohan would have to return to jail.

Lohan, 25, was led away from the courtroom in handcuffs, but was expected to post bail and not spend time behind bars, pending the November 2 hearing set by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner.

The actress was sentenced to 360 hours community service earlier this year as part of her sentence for stealing a gold necklace from a jewelry store. The "Mean Girls" actress also served 35 days under house arrest.

The actress' once promising movie career has been derailed by multiple trips to jail and rehab since 2007.
