Customs and Border Protection officers say they found the bracelet around Eugene Todie's ankle July 9 after he tried to re-enter the United States using someone else's passport. They say he's on probation and not supposed to leave the country. They say Todie told them a probation officer friend gave him the bracelet to wear for Lohan, who's had to wear an alcohol ankle monitor... the Buffalo...
