Courtney Love was ordered yesterday (Aug. 10) to appear in court later this month to face an allegation that she violated her probation in an assault case by being under the influence of a controlled substance.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Rand S. Rubin issued a bench warrant for Love's arrest, but agreed to hold it pending the hearing scheduled for Aug. 19. During that hearing, a date will be set for another hearing to decide whether Love, 41, violated probation.

Rubin also said he wanted a report from Love's drug counselor. "I'm certainly not happy with what's going on," he said.

Prosecutors said the alleged violation involved a narcotic, but did not identify it. Love, who pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor assault charge on Feb. 10, was not at the hearing.
