Lindsay Lohan and arrest warrant

Lindsay Lohan's attorney says an arrest warrant issued for the actress Friday and stemming from a 2007 DUI conviction was "born out of a misunderstanding."
"Since her case was resolved, Ms.
Lohan has been in compliance with all the terms and conditions of her probation and all orders of the court," her lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley said in a statement Saturday, referring to Lohan's 2007 conviction for driving under the influence.
"The warrant issued on Friday was, in our view, born out of a misunderstanding which I am confident I can clear up next week."
A hearing for Lohan is set for Monday morning in a Beverly Hills court.
"The judge apparently has indicated that Ms. Lohan should be in attendance," said L.A. DA spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons. Lohan, 22, is currently serving a three-year probation term for the DUI incident, the actress's second.
"We are not actively looking for Ms. Lohan at this time," Beverly Hills Police Lt. Mark Rosen said at a Saturday press conference.
"We are not anticipating her surrender this weekend. But if she comes in contact with police, she's subject to arrest.
As for why we're not actively looking for her, that's not our procedure for this type of warrant. Her attorney is hoping to resolve this issue in the coming week.
If it's not resolved, I'm sure we'll negotiate her voluntary surrender."
