Uh oh? Lohan's ankle monitor goes off at house

It only took five days for Lindsay Lohan to trigger her ankle monitor; she's under a 35-day house arrest — so is it a case of cabin fever? Maybe not.

Whoever had "five days" in the office pool, give yourselves a pat on the back.

Because that's how long it took for Lindsay Lohan's ankle-monitoring bracelet — the least fashionable condition of her 35-day house arrest sentence — to go off.

So what was the culprit this time? Booze? Drugs? Did she try and make a run for it?

Nah. This time around (and brace yourselves, this may be a first), Lohan appears to have done absolutely nothing wrong.

We'll give you a minute to recover.

At least as it stands right now, the house-arrest electronic monitoring system appears to have simply gone on the blink when it went off Tuesday, causing probation officials to pay a house call to LiLo's Venice townhome.

Lindsay's rep told E! News that, per his understanding, there was a system issue with her equipment that warranted an impromptu check-in. (Officers are allowed to enter her home at any time to make sure she is in compliance with her requirements.)

Once there, they discovered no probation-violating debauchery, but rather Lindsay watching TV (fun fact: according to the Los Angeles Times, hers is a 3D set), reading scripts (while presumably puffing on some e-cigs) and preening on her rooftop patio while — wouldn't you know it — in full view of paparazzi.

Hey, a gal's gotta earn money somehow, right?

In any case, there's no official word on whether the alarm was simply on the fritz or, if so, how common an occurrence that actually is, or if any further investigation will take. But leave it to Lindsay to get a malfunctioning device.

Some people really can't catch a break.
