(Newser) – Just about as quickly as she was sent back to jail, Lindsay Lohan was sprung from it—but she almost wasn’t. The broke actress’s bail was set at $300,000, and she “hasn’t earned that sort of money in a long time,” a source tells PopEater. “There was a moment when the family honestly thought Lindsay wasn't going to be released because they didn't have that amount of money available to post bail.” (The source, hilariously, goes on to call the idea of LiLo remaining locked up a “tragedy.”)

For more on Lindsay’s latest plans, including yet another stint in rehab, yet another plea from her father, and the bewildering mystery of how exactly she’s still able to clothe herself in thousands of dollars worth of designer duds, click here.
