BEVERLY HILLS (AP) – Lindsay Lohan has been freed from a suburban Los Angeles jail after posting $300,000 bail.

The 24-year-old actress was freed late Friday night after spending just less than 12 hours at the facility, where she has been taken twice before on a 2007 drug and drunken driving case.

Lohan’s release had faced nearly a month in jail after Judge Elden S. Fox ordered her held without bail until her next hearing. Lohan’s attorney challenged the ruling, which was overturned by another judge Friday evening.

The “Mean Girls” star is due back in a Beverly Hills court on Oct. 22, when a judge will formally determine whether she violated her probation by failing a drug screening.

She is now required to wear an ankle alcohol monitor and stay away from places that primarily sell alcohol.

    Finally! She’s been through so much and unfairly treated. We should leave her alone and so what she takes drugs. It’s just a little bit and not everyday, too much or every single night all the time, too much. Right? She needs to take more drugs and show the US and A that she’s a big girl and can handle drugs responsibly. She’s not a bad girl and her parents are cool with this. What a total waste of time and “talent.” The Mexican drug cartels and drug dealers love her! She supports their employment and international trade arrangements.

    You can have as much justice as you can afford!! If this was anyone else, they would have been locked up and not out on a BS Bail after several violations of court orders. This stinks!!
