LOS ANGELES – Lindsay Lohan sported a new accessory Wednesday after a judge revoked her probation: Handcuffs.

The actress was taken into custody after Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner revoked her probation because she was ousted from a community service assignment at a women’s shelter.

“There has been violation after violation,” Sautner said.

Bail was set at $100,000. Lohan’s spokesman Steve Honig said it was immediately posted and the actress was later released from Airport Courthouse.

“We’re dealing with someone on probation,” said Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Holley. “Most people on probation don’t always do things perfectly.”

A city prosecutor recommended jail time, but Sautner set a Nov. 2 hearing to decide whether Lohan should serve another stint behind bars, where she has been sent four previous times only to be released early due to jail overcrowding.

“If jail meant something in the state of California now, maybe I’d put her in jail,” Sautner said.

The development marked the latest legal problem for the 25-year-old Lohan, who was given probation for a 2007 drunken driving case and a misdemeanor theft case this year.

“Lindsay is hoping this matter will be resolved on Nov. 2 and the court will reinstate probation and allow her to continue fulfilling her community service,” Honig said.

Lohan had been ordered in April to serve 360 hours at the Downtown Women’s Center, an agency that helps homeless women. Nine of Lohan’s appointments at the center were “just blown off” and she “showed up once and left after an hour,” Sautner said.

Lohan has since started serving hours with the American Red Cross, but Sautner said that would not count because it was not part of her sentence.

During the tense proceedings, Sautner hammered Lohan for failing to show up for her four-hour appointments at the women’s center and for taking six months to complete a court-ordered Shoplifters Anonymous course. The judge also questioned how Lohan could have complied with her court-ordered weekly psychological counseling when she was traveling in Europe from Sept. 9 to Oct. 5.

“I don’t know how she did that in person every week,” said Sautner, who suggested Lohan complete a minimum of 16 hours of her community service at the county morgue before the Nov. 2 hearing, when Lohan’s probation officer and other officials will testify about her efforts to complete her sentence.

Lohan, aside from a role in last year’s film “Machete,” has seen her acting career evaporate in recent years. She has been in perpetual trouble since May 2010.

French first lady has a baby girl

PARIS – French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy gave birth to a baby girl on Wednesday night — the first infant born to a sitting president of modern-day France, the French media reported.

President Nicolas Sarkozy, finishing up a meeting in Frankfurt on the euro debt crisis, was absent when the couple’s first child was born shortly before 8 p.m., according to BFM TV. He reportedly arrived at the small, private Muette Clinic about 11 p.m. — his third trip Wednesday to the facility.

Europe 1 radio said the birth “went well” for the 43-year-old mother, a singer and former supermodel. She entered the medical facility in western Paris in the morning accompanied by Sarkozy, according to the reports.

There was no official confirmation.

Sarandon refers to pope as a Nazi

Susan Sarandon appears to have pulled up a chair at Hank Williams Jr. and Lars Von Trier’s table: The activist-actress is in a harsh spotlight after describing Pope Benedict XVI as a Nazi during a sit-down chat at the Hamptons International Film Festival on Saturday.

During an interview by actor Bob Balaban, the “Dead Man Walking” Oscar winner said she’d sent a copy of that book to the pope — clarifying that she was talking about the previous pontiff, John Paul II, “Not this Nazi one we have now.” After Balaban “tut-tutted” (in the words of Newsday), the actress repeated her comment.

The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights and the Anti-Defamation League were less than amused.

“Ms. Sarandon may have her differences with the Catholic Church, but that is no excuse for throwing around Nazi analogies,” ADL national director Abraham H. Foxman said Monday in a statement suggesting the actress apologize to the Catholic community.
