In response, Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Jane Godfrey revoked Lohan’s probation – a formality whenever there’s an allegation of a violation – and set a Jan. 15 court appearance that could be the next step toward sending Lohan to jail for up to 245 days.

“We’re all hoping to get this behind us very quickly,” she told reporters.
