Man tells border agents his ankle monitor is in support of Lindsay Lohan
The man is on probation and is not supposed to leave the country
BUFFALO, N.Y. — Border agents said a New York man who's on probation and not supposed to leave the country explained away the ankle monitor he was wearing while returning from Canada as a show of support for actress Lindsay Lohan. Customs and Border Protection officers found the bracelet around 29-year-old Eugene Todie's ankle July 9 after he allegedly tried to re-enter the country using someone else's passport.
Officers said Todie told them a probation officer friend gave him the bracelet to wear for Lohan, who's had to wear an alcohol ankle monitor. Record checks showed the Buffalo man is on probation for criminal contempt.
Todie appeared in federal court Tuesday on misuse of a passport and lying charges and must return with a lawyer July 20. A telephone listing couldn't be found.
