An arrest warrant has been issued against Lindsay Lohan for driving under the influence in 2007, Beverly Hills police said Saturday.

According to officials, the 50,000-dollar arrest warrant against the 22-year-old American actress "stems from a May 2007 arrest of Miss Lohan for DUI (driving under the influence) and hit-and-run."

"The circumstances leading to the issuance of the warrant by the court are not readily available at this time. It is our hope that Miss Lohan will surrender herself so that this matter will be resolved in a timely manner," added police from the city west of Los Angeles.

After a stay in rehab, she was caught two months later for driving under the influence and possession of cocaine.

The arrests led her to ultimately serve a mere 84 minutes in jail. She was also sentenced to 10 hours of community service and three years of probation.

The queen of Hollywood nights and a favorite target of the paparazzi, the former Disney child star was once considered one of the most promising actresses of her generation.

But her career has also dipped many times since 2005 amid legal woes, stops in rehab and cinematic flops.

In 2008, the star of "The Parent Trap," "Mean Girls" and "Bobby," received two Razzie Awards, the satirical awards presented to Hollywood's worst actors.
