Lohan's probation period extended

Lindsay Lohan has had her probation for a drink driving conviction extended for one more year.

Lohan was ordered to appear in court after probation officials said she had missed some alcohol education classes.

The actress was told to complete an 18-month alcohol awareness programme in August 2007 after being convicted of drink driving and other charges.

Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, said there was confusion over when she would attend some sessions.

Mr Holley said his client had told officials she was leaving Los Angeles to work on a film in Texas but there was a misunderstanding about when she would return.
