The 24 year-old actress — who is confined to her home on a separate sentence for stealing a necklace earlier this year — is due in court on Thursday morning in Los Angeles, said Sandi Gibbons, spokeswoman for the L.A. District Attorney’s Office.

Gibbons said she did not know how Lohan allegedly violated her probation. But entertainment website Radar Online cited unnamed sources as saying Lohan tested positive for alcohol, which would violate her probation in the drunken driving case.

Lohan has been dogged by the 2007 drunk driving case for years and has served several stints in rehab and jail for violating her probation. A judge last year ordered Lohan to court for missing alcohol education classes, and she later went to a rehab center in southern California.

She was released from that facility in January and then landed in trouble, again, for stealing the necklace from a Los Angeles-area jewelry store.

Lohan was once considered one of Hollywood’s most promising actresses, but her career has fallen on hard times due to her personal and legal troubles.
