"Mean Girls" actress Lindsay Lohan was ordered to attend a probation hearing which may lead to jail time for reportedly missing alcohol education classes imposed for a 2007 drunken driving case, media reported Wednesday.

Beverly Hills Superior Court judge Marsha Revel had ordered the troubled actress to attend a progress review in person on Thursday, according to court officials.

The order was issued after the celebrity website reported that the 23-year-old has attended only 10 of 13 alcohol education classes required of her and spent months partying.

Judicial sources said that the judge could decide to put her behind bars if what the website reported was true.

Lohan is currently in France for the Cannes Film Festival and her attorney has not made comment yet.

Lohan was arrested and sued for drunk driving, reckless driving and driving under the influence of cocaine in 2007.

She was placed on three years probation and ordered to complete an 18-month alcohol education program.

The Superior Court in October extended Lohan's three years probation for another year and warned her to get serious about the alcohol program.

Lohan was also sentenced to 24 hours in jail but spent just 84 minutes behind bars because of overcrowding in Los Angeles prisoners.
