After missing a mandatory court appearance, Lindsay Lohan is now required to wear a GPS enabled ankle bracelet that will help authorities keep track of her location at all times. But this is not an ordinary GPS ankle bracelet. This particular GPS ankle bracelet not only streams LiLo’s real-time location every 30 minutes, but it also checks her body’s blood alcohol level.
The bracelet uses the same technology as a breathalyzer, but instead of checking the breath for alcohol, it checks the skin’s perspiration. After alcohol is consumed, it eventually enters the bloodstream and a small amount leaves through the skin. This is where the bracelet would kick in and report to the court or probation officer that the person wearing the bracelet has been drinking. The device is also tamper proof and would alert the court or probation officer if it was taken off or was somehow being manipulated.This type of monitoring represents a whole new genre of GPS trackers designed especially for law enforcement. As for Lindsay Lohan, she has to remain in California and stay alcohol and drug free, otherwise she will be facing some jail time.
