Lindsay Lohan Accused of Battery in Rehab Melee, Claims Staff Member Attacked Her First

by at . Comments

Another day, another absurd story from Betty Ford. Lindsay Lohan is a suspect in a criminal battery investigation after getting into a scuffle ... in rehab.

The Palm Desert Police Department is investigating the altercation, which occurred after Lindsay and her roommates went out to A BAR and came back.

Upon arriving at their sober house, the incident with a female staffer allegedly went down. Police were called after a "hand-to-hand battery" complaint.

Cops came to Betty Ford after receiving the call and interviewed both the staffer - who "desired prosecution" - and the oft-troubled star herself.

It's unclear if this was related to Lohan's rager in rehab this month, but when police finish investigating, prosecutors will decide how to proceed.

Whether they file charges is anyone's guess, but she could be sent back to jail because she's still technically on probation until August 2011.

As for her side of the story, sources close to Lindsay Lohan claim she did NOT strike first, but she did push back in the "physical" altercation.

Lindsay is telling people close to her that the drama unfolded when she arrived to the BFC on Dec. 12 roughly ten minutes after her curfew.

Lindsay claims the female staff member was "unfairly" scolding her about the situation and demanded the actress take a drug/alcohol test.

During the heated exchange that the woman "put her hands on Lindsay." Lindsay claims she told the woman, "Take your hands off of me."

Then she "pushed back." Police received a call early that morning, and the star was named as a suspect. The staffer wants LiLo prosecuted.

Lindsay feels the staff member had it out for her for a while and believes the staffer may have even been "looking for a final confrontation."

It will be interesting to see this play out, but it's as if Linds is trying to show we had her low at #8 on our Celebrity of the Year countdown.

Hey Judge Fox...yea I'm talking to you!!! Sounds like she would have received as much re-hab help as she would have if you sent her to Disney Land for 2 months. Get a grip on this bad-ass before she kills one of OUR kids that drives the sreeets of LA. I have one there. Consider this a 'kind' warning!!!

With Lindsay Lohan's rehabilitation being given so much press almost on a daily basis, I wonder if former First Lady Betty Ford
ever wishes that they would give The Betty Ford Clinic another name
other than the name that was given in honor of her.Just asking!!
