A warrant was issued for her arrest earlier this month after she failed to appear for her arraignment. At the time, her attorney, Michael Rosenstein, said she was hospitalized in New York.
Smiling and dressed in blue jeans, Love slipped into the Police Department's Wilshire station on Friday with an entourage that included her attorney. She was photographed, fingerprinted and then freed on a $150,000 bail bond and ordered to appear for an arraignment on Aug. 20.
"She was extremely cooperative. She was pleasant. She was very coherent," said police Capt. Pat Findley.
Love has two other cases pending against her in the Los Angeles area. On Friday in Beverly Hills, a judge ordered Love to appear in court Thursday (July 29) for a hearing on two felony counts of drug possession.
In a separate case, Love pleaded guilty May 25 to a misdemeanor count of being under the influence of a controlled substance in October. She is scheduled to appear in court in that case tomorrow and is expected to be ordered into a drug-treatment program.
