LOS ANGELES, July 9 (UPI) -- When Courtney Love failed to show up in a Los Angeles courtroom Friday for a hearing, a judge issued an arrest warrant.

E! Online reports that Court Commissioner Dennis Mulcahy also set a new bail of $150,000, ruling that Love had forfeited bail of $55,000.

Love is charged in Los Angeles with assaulting a woman with a deadly weapon -- a liquor bottle and flashlight -- during an altercation at an ex-boyfriend's home. She also faces charges in New York of assaulting a fan with a microphone stand, in Beverly Hills of illegal drug possession, a felony, and has pleaded guilty in Los Angeles for breaking windows at her ex-boyfriend's.

Love was in New York Friday, presumably celebrating her 40th birthday. Her lawyer said she did not realize that she was required to be present at the hearing.

Love has already been warned that being a celebrity rock star does not exempt her from the law.

"The rule applies to you the same as it does to everyone else," a New York judge told Love recently when she showed up for a hearing five hours late.
