LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - An arrest warrant for actress Lindsay Lohan was quashed on Monday after a Beverly Hills judge ruled she had not violated her probation for a 2007 drunken driving conviction.

The $50,000 warrant was issued by the Beverly Hills Superior Court late on Friday but Lohan's lawyer said over the weekend it stemmed from a misunderstanding.

Lohan, 22, spent 84 minutes behind bars in November 2007 for a drunken driving and cocaine possession conviction after two arrests earlier that year.

The "Mean Girls" and "Freaky Friday" actress was also ordered to enroll in an alcohol education program.

Lohan's lawyer submitted proof of the actress's compliance with the order at Monday's brief hearing and the Beverly Hills Superior Court quashed the arrest warrant.

Lohan did not attend Monday's hearing.
