A judge has ordered troubled actress Lindsay Lohan to return to jail after she failed a drug test.

The Mean Girls actress, who has seen her career derailed in recent years by drug and alcohol problems, was handcuffed and taken away from the Beverly Hills courtroom.

She was remanded in custody to await a hearing on whether she violated terms of her probation by failing a court-ordered drug test.

Lohan, 24, spent two weeks in jail in August and 22 more days in a residential drug program when a judge found that she had violated her probation on a 2007 conviction for drunken driving and cocaine possession.

After being released from rehab, she was subject to random drug tests.

She has publicly acknowledged that she failed one of them, which could trigger a 30-day jail sentence for violating terms of her probation.
