Lindsay Lohan was denied bail and taken into custody Friday after breaking probation by failing a pair of drug tests following her release from rehab. Judge Elden Fox issued the order without hearing arguments from Lohan's lawyers, TMZ reports, and the perpetually-troubled actress could be held in custody until a hearing in late October.

The 'Mean Girls' star rolled up to the Beverly Hills courthouse wearing a black top, white skirt and a smile. It was her first appearance before Judge Fox, who issued an arrest warrant earlier this the week to compel Lohan to appear. He previously outlined that he would sentence the actress to a month in jail if she failed a drug test. However, it was believed that unless Lohan requested immediate sentencing, the judge would set bail and release her until a formal probation hearing.

Instead, Fox denied bail and set Lohan's next court appearance for Oct. 22. According to reports, the shocked actress was handcuffed before being taken into custody.

The star's estranged father, Michael, spoke briefly following the hearing, saying the judge's decision was a "wake-up call" and that he was going to "pray" for his daughter's recovery. At the same time, he didn't seem to fault Judge Fox for the decision.

"The judge has to do what the judge has to do," he said.

This is a developing story.

The 24-year-old 'Machete' star took to Twitter on Sept. 18 and admitted that she "did in fact fail my most recent drug test" and that she was "prepared to appear before Judge Fox next week as a result."

According to the terms of Lohan's probation, a failed drug test means she could spend another 30 days in jail.

In other tweets from the actress, she added, "Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn't go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps ... forward every day. I am testing every single day and doing what I must do to prevent any mishaps in the future."

Lohan was released from court-ordered rehab at UCLA Medical Center on Aug. 24 after only 22 days. Judge Marsha Revel sentenced Lohan to 90 days in jail and a 90-day inpatient rehabilitation program on July 6 for violating her probation in a 2007 DUI case. She ended up serving only 14 days due to good behavior and overcrowding at the jail.

According to sources close to the case, doctors overseeing the actress at UCLA saw no cause to keep her in rehab for the entirety of the 90 days she was sentenced to by Judge Revel, who has since recused herself from further proceedings related to Lohan.

Her legal woes began in May 2007 when she was arrested following a minor car accident and charged with DUI. Just two months later, she was taken into custody for suspicion of drunk driving and cocaine possession.

Following her first DUI, Lohan spent 84 minutes in jail after pleading guilty to two misdemeanor counts of being under the influence of cocaine and no contest to two counts of driving with a blood-alcohol level above 0.08 percent and one count of reckless driving.
