Los Angeles: Lindsay Lohan, who has been ordered by a court to wear an alcohol monitoring bracelet called SCRAM, is hooked on to a particular beverage and reports say her recent run-in with the law could have been due to her love for the drink.
Eonline.com reports that the 23-year-old has been spotted with bottles of Kombucha tea, which the company claims contains only a trace of alcohol (less than 0.5 percent). But recently, Lilo`s drink of choice was pulled from shelves at Whole Foods. Why, you may ask?
Lohan`s beloved beverage is now suspected of having more alcohol in it than its label states, according to X17online.com. The exact amount of alcohol is being investigated.
Her SCRAM device triggered during the MTV Movie Awards after party. Could guzzling bottles of Kombucha really have set off the alarm, raising her blood-alcohol level to a reported .03-.04?
Kombucha`s head honcho says no way.
"Although we are not familiar with the technology or sensitivity of SCRAM bracelets, we think it would be highly unlikely that our products would trigger an alarm," G.T. Dave, creator of Synergy Kombucha, told TMZ.com.
Chances are Lilo would have to down way more than one or two bottles of this tea to raise her levels that high. That doesn`t mean she won`t try to to tack this one on to her long list of excuses if her SCRAM sounds off again anytime soon.
