Lindsay Lohan's attorney Shawn Chapman Holley claimed the 23-year-old star recorded a negative alcohol urine test at L.A.'s County Probation Department at 10 A.M. local time on Monday June 7, just hours after her SCRAM bracelet went off at a 2010 MTV Movie Awards after party. A source with knowledge of the test results told E! Online, "They did a urinalysis through Medtox labs and it was indicated conclusively that there was no alcohol in her system at that time. She was ordered to go right in and today just got report back and it was negative."

The reason why the SCRAM bracelet went off remains unclear. Shawn, however, denied any allegations that Lindsay tampered with the bracelet. Lindsay's mother Dina Lohan, in the meantime, previously suggested that someone spilled a drink on the device.

Although Lindsay's urine test tested negative, a source told radar Online her alcohol level was as high as .04 the day her SCRAM bracelet went off. The site reported that her alcohol level ranged from .03 to .04 from midnight to 3 A.M. on June 6, during the hours of the MTV Movie Awards after party.

"There was absolutely no doubt that Lindsay was drinking, and the report that the alcohol monitoring service provided to Judge Revel was very detailed and extremely reliable," a source told the site. "The (SCRAM) report also says that Lohan's SCRAM bracelet had indeed been tampered with, and this is one of the reasons that Judge Revel determined that Lindsay violated terms of her bail."

However, official documentation from that test has not been made public. The source further revealed that the time of the test will be compared to the SCRAM data by both the prosecution and Lindsay's defense.

On how Lindsay's test urine tested negative while the source stated her blood-alcohol level was anywhere between .03 and .04, Kathleen Brown of the Alcohol Monitoring Services explained to E! News. Kathleen said, "It's not just possible, but probable, that someone would have a .00 BAC the morning after drinking, even earlier than a 10 A.M. test."

"That is precisely the reason that judges order 24/7 alcohol monitoring, and that's the reason that this judge ordered both random drug tests and SCRAM in this case. Alcohol metabolizes very quickly in the body, and thus it's very difficult to catch drinking in random tests," Kathleen continued. "Random tests are very good at catching drug use - drugs leave residual indicators in the body that last much longer than alcohol."

When will the Government get it through their thick Liberally based, M.A.A.D. and other B.S. influenced Lobbyist so called Non-Profit Organizations, leave the American Public alone! Let us make our own choices!!!!!! It's our lives, our decisions, our consequences!!! NOT ANYONE ELSE'S, YET ALONE A PATHETIC GOVERNMENT RUN BY LIBERAL ELITIST PIECES OF GARBAGE!!! YES THE SAME GARBAGE LIBERALS LIKE KENNEDY WHO KILLED A YOUNG GIRL BUT GOT OFF SCOT FREE AND BECAME POWERFUL BECAUSE OF HIS NAME AND MONEY! YES, THE SAME LIBERALS WHO NEVER HOLD THEMSELVES ACCOUNTABLE BUT ALWAYS FIND SOMEONE ELSE TO BLAME AND LINK THEMSELVES TO A WORTHLESS ORGANIZATION LIKE M.A.A.D., IN ORDER TO SAVE FACE FOR THEIR OWN CRIMES THAT THE AVERAGE PERSON HAS NO CHANCE OF RECEIVING A FAIR TRIAL, YET ALONE THE TREATMENT THESE ELITIST LIBERAL PISSANTS GET!!! For the ignorant that are up in arms over hating M.A.A.D., you should educate yourselves (yes, I realize how hard this may be); as you worthless human beings are willing to accept Liberals who feed you lies upon lies simply because they are well aware of how truly uneducated and stupid you are. Do you morons realize that the Founder of M.A.A.D. resigned 5 years after in 1985 because the Government too over her organization and failed to understand the very premise of why she founded it? Now that the Gov. has taken alcohol related offenses to such an extreme, the average person suffers. Lindsay or anyone else for that matter, is forced to wear an ankle bracelet? Really? Why? Because some Liberal piece of trash orders it? Why not order that illegals be deported? You know, the same ones that if you have ever experienced a crash with....Whether they were drunk or not, get off scot free, not deported, and the illegal has no Judge tell them to pay for damages!!!! So, no, Liberal Judges should not tell Lindsay or anyone else to not drink when she is not driving!!! Anyone who disagrees with the above should be afforded the same type of justice. For example, oops, my firearm discharged and killed a Liberal loser. Oh, how sorry I am. Maybe the Liberal/s should have had some sort of ankle bracelet or identification that let me know that you were a Liberal!!!
