For Lohan, judgment will wait till new year

  • Updated: December 12, 2012 - 10:54 PM

Actress Lindsay Lohan's probation for jewelry theft was revoked Wednesday by a judge after prosecutors charged her with three misdemeanor counts accusing her of lying to Santa Monica police about whether she was driving a Porsche that collided with a dump truck. The revocation came as Lohan's attorney, Shawn Holley, appeared at the Airport Court on behalf of the actress. A judge will decide in the new year if the actress' actions amount to a violation punishable by jail time. Lohan, 26, is on probation after pleading no contest to misdemeanor grand theft stemming from stealing a necklace last year from a Venice jewelry store. She faces up to 245 days in jail if the judge seeks the maximum punishment. She has been to jail four times in recent years for various violations of the probation terms set after a conviction in 1997 of driving under the influence.

Christie: Weight is not presidential issue

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said it is "ridiculous" for people to question whether he is too heavy to be U.S. president. The governor told Barbara Walters for her annual "10 Most Fascinating People" special on ABC that he was "more than a little" overweight. But when Walters said some people say he is too overweight to be president, Christie, a Republican who is often mentioned as a potential candidate in 2016, responded: "That's ridiculous. I don't know what the basis for that is." Walters said that people were concerned about his health and that people who are overweight are more prone to health problems. But he noted his work after Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey, when he appeared all over the state. "I think people watched me for the last number of weeks and Hurricane Sandy doing 18-hour days and getting right back up the next day and still being just as effective in the job," he said. Walters started the discussion by observing that Christie is a "little overweight." He responded, "More than a little." When she asked why, he replied, "If I could figure that out, I'd fix it."

ACTRESS MAKES DEAL: "Modern Family" teen star Ariel Winter, 14, who accused her mother of abusing her, will continue to live with her adult sister while her father temporarily handles her personal finances, according to an agreement hammered out Wednesday. Her mother, Chrisoula Workman, has denied the allegations.

IN TREATMENT: California Gov. Jerry Brown is being treated for prostate cancer, his office said. Dr. Eric Small, his oncologist, said it is a localized case of prostate cancer, which bodes well for treatment. Brown's office said the 74-year-old governor will continue a full work schedule during the treatment, which is expected to be completed in early January.
