‘Bling Ring’ member Neiers has probation revoked

The 19 year old, who starred in U.S. TV series Pretty Wild, was on probation after pleading no contest to a count of first-degree residential burglary stemming from a raid on actor Orlando Bloom’s home last year (09).

She was freed from jail in July (10) after serving just four weeks of a 180-day sentence for her part in the infamous ‘Bling Ring’ burglary gang, which targeted celebrity homes across Hollywood.

But Neiers was taken into custody by Los Angeles police on Wednesday (01Dec10) after failing to check in for probation. Cops reportedly found her in possession of black tar heroin and a fake identity card.

And she was thrown behind bars on Friday after a judge ruled she be held without bail pending a hearing next week (09Dec10).

Her lawyer, Michael Nasatir, insists Neiers doesn’t deserve jail and is urging the judge to send her to rehab instead.

He tells TMZ.com, “(Alexis) is a young woman with a drug problem and she needs treatment. This is her first offence. Let’s get her some recovery rather than incarceration.”
