In the middle of a police investigation after being accused of stealing an expensive piece of jewelry, Lindsay Lohan just turned over a necklace to police.

Girl cannot stay out of trouble for five minutes. This incident could be much more serious than the whole rehab fight / Dawn Holland bribe scandal too.

It started last week. The owner of an L.A. store filed a police report, claiming a $5,000 necklace had been stolen from her. Suspect #1? You guessed it.

Store surveillance video shows Lindsay in there, wearing the necklace just before it vanished (it's unclear if the video shows her peacing out with it).

Authorities were about to obtain a warrant to search Lohan's home, but last night one of Lindsay's associates turned that piece over to the cops.

Turning in stolen property doesn't mean you didn't gank it in the first place, of course, so the owner can continue to press the case against Lohan.

Knowing Lindsay - who is still on probation, and could be royally screwed if she's in fact guilty of this - she'll claim she wore it out "by accident."

After Lindsay Lohan's encounter with Dawn Holland at the Betty Ford Center, during which the former staffer originally alleged she was battered by Lindsay, only to take back that claim days later, we joked that bribes go a long way.

Well, the D.A. had the same thought. Only he isn't kidding.

The Riverside County D.A.'s office has kept open the case against Lindsay, and a suspected payoff to Holland is one reason for the extended investigation.

"Riverside District Attorney David Greenberg, who is handling the case, suspects that Dawn Holland was paid off by Lindsay Lohan's camp," a source said.

"Greenberg believes that Dawn's change of heart was fiscally motivated. Greenberg believes Lindsay's camp paid Dawn off, plain and simple."

A source says Lindsay was unaware of any payment involving Dawn. That's because, Radar Online claims, Michael Lohan was the one involved.

Lindsay Lohan is a free woman ... BUT FOR HOW LONG?!

Seriously, the girl commits probation violations like Miley Cyrus' idiot friends take semi-scandalous pics and videos of her. Lindsay's little scuffle at Betty Ford may ultimately land her in a heap of trouble, and possibly even back in jail.

Her fate rests with the Riverside County District Attorney.

Officials believe Lindsay violated her probation in the altercation with a Betty Ford Center staff member, and if the judge handling her case agrees ... trouble.

Dawn Holland, a staffer at Betty Ford, claims Lindsay assaulted and injured her last month after allegedly violating her curfew. Lindsay sort of denies this.

For whatever reason, Holland, who was fired for blabbing about the event to TMZ, pulled a 180 and told police she had no interest in pursuing the case.

Without a witness cooperating, the case should go away. Right?

Lindsay Lohan claims the Betty Ford staff member who alleges battery by the star "had it out for her" and was so abusive that she made Lohan cry.

Dawn Holland, who was just fired, says otherwise.

A chemical dependency technician, Holland says Lindsay attacked her physically and caused her to sprain her arm so severely she's on workers' comp.

Lindsay is telling her friends and family, when she returned to the house, Holland grabbed her abruptly and pushed her so hard, Lindsay began to cry.

Lohan also notes, for starters, that she wasn't even with her two roommates hours before the incident that triggered the staffer's battery allegation.

Lindsay says was out getting her hair done ... around midnight. That's obviously true. Wherever she was, she broke curfew and all hell broke loose.

Holland says Lohan refused to take a breathalyzer, whereas the troubled star says she actually asked Holland to give her a test but Holland refused.

That's when things got really heated.

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.

OMG It Wasn't Me

NOT MY FAULT! There's always some excuse. [Photo: Pacific Coast News]

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.

Let the soap dropping fun begin, because Lindsay Lohan was unexpectedly denied bail and remanded into custody this morning pending a full probation hearing.

A date for that hearing has not been set, but must take place within 30 days. So she could be sitting in jail until Oct. 23, which wouldn't shock us that this point.

The move by our new hero, Judge Elden Fox, comes as a surprise because he could have revoked the train wreck's probation immediately and sent her to jail.

All Smiles Entering the Courtroom

Lindsay was all smiles en route to court. Oh, how quickly that changed.

By doing so, however, he inadvertently would have let her off the hook.

Due to severe overcrowding, Lindsay would likely have been processed and cut loose on the spot, a sadly customary occurrence for many non-violent criminals.

Therefore, by remanding her without bail until the hearing - at which point she'll be jailed and released due to overcrowding - the judge ensures she does time.

Clever, and for the best. After all, if you're drunk Tweeting about failed drug tests and clearly can't take responsibility, then this last resort may be the only one.

Lindsay Lohan has failed her most recent mandatory drug test, a condition of her probation. This is not just a rumor. She confirmed it herself on Twitter.

It may mean the 24-year-old is headed back to the slammer. L.A. Superior Court Judge Elden Fox had threatened to hand her 30 days for each violation.

Lohan, who served just a fraction of her previous jail and rehab sentences, confesed on Twitter: "Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test."

Lindsay Lohan Mug Shot 2010

TMZ reports Lindsay Lohan had "multiple dirty tests" and that the drug in question was cocaine at least once. The actress continued her mea cupla:

"If I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week. Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn't go away over night."

"I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps forward. I am testing every day and doing what I must to prevent any [more] mishaps."

The train wreck concludes, "This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I'm prepared to face the consequences."

A hearing would take place before Lindsay Lohan could be sent to jail, but a L.A. County District Attorney spokeswoman said none is scheduled ... yet.

Lindsay Lohan is going to jail.

The troubled star surrendered in court this morning to begin serving a three-month sentence for violating the probation terms of her 2007 DUI conviction.

In reality, Lindsay may spend only about three weeks behind bars, due to the overcrowding of the facility she's headed to. Assuming she behaves herself.

Judge Marsha Revel did not allow the media to capture the exact moment of Linds' surrender (good for her, bad for us), before ordering her into custody.

"At this time, she will be remanded," the judge said as Lohan was about to be cuffed, adding "All cameras are ordered to be shut off, both still and video."

Revel said Lohan would not be eligible for house arrest or work release. She will also be required to report to probation within 24 hours of her release.

Lohan Jailed

Lindsay Lohan did not speak in court this morning.

After cameras were shut off, deputies took her away and removed her belongings as old/new lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley and her family looked on.

"I love you, Lindsay," said Michael Lohan, who unfortunately showed.

Lindsay will now begin processing at the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood, Calif., where she will spend her sentence, however long that is.

Processing entails fingerprinting, photographing (new mug shots!), cell assignment, ankle monitor removal and a wardrobe change (orange jumpsuit!!).

Back in 2007, Lohan spent just 84 minutes at this same facility. Not long enough, apparently, to change her destructive behavior in any discernible way.

Here's hoping a few weeks or more does the trick this time around. What will be the biggest obstacle for her, no Twitter, no friends or no cigarettes?

We'll find out soon enough.

Lindsay Lohan's day of reckoning has arrived, and an orange jumpsuit will soon follow - she'll be doing 90 days in jail for violating probation, followed by rehab.

The troubled actress must surrender July 20.

She's beaten the rap before, but from the very beginning today, the star's attempts to evade jail for skipping mandatory alcohol education classes were doomed.

She has now made good on the classes, but that wasn't true in May, when she bailed on her last hearing and ended up free on bail wearing a SCRAM device.

Whether she remained free or not rested with no-nonsense Judge Marsha Revel, who sentenced LiLo after incredulous prosecutor Danette Meyers took it to her.

Hard core.

UP AGAINST IT: The evidence against her too strong and the judge no pushover, Lindsay and lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley were unable to defy the odds again.

Court proceedings began with a victory for the troubled star. Revel ruled out the matter of the SCRAM device going off after the MTV Movie Awards June 7.

The hearing was thus exclusively about whether Lindsay Lohan violated probation by not attending enough alcohol ed classes at the time of the last hearing.

Not that she was out of the woods by any means.

The Office Manager at the Right On program testified that the program knew the judge wanted Lindsay to attend class once a week, which she did not.

Co-owner Cheryl Marshall testified that she violated the program by failing to attend the classes and coming up with a variety of excuses throughout.

Lindsay Lohan's downward spiral continues - although this time, there may be actual, serious legal implications after she violated the terms of her probation.

That's no joke, and will almost certainly land her in jail, according to reports. On probation for DUI, LL has not fulfilled her alcohol education requirements.

Judge Marsha Revel made it unmistakably clear to Lindsay late last year that the fallen star must attend alcohol education courses once every seven days. 

The only exception? Inpatient rehab. The judge couldn't be more direct: If Lindsay Lohan did not comply with the terms of probation, she was going to jail.

She has not complied. Not because of rehab, either. Right, Michael Lohan? Seriously. Girl can't make one meeting a week? She has no work whatsoever!

Instead, she skips classes to party like a madman. Awesome work, Linds!

BLOODSHOT BASKET CASE: This is Lindsay in court. Court!

The school in which Lindsay enrolled is required by law to inform the court only if the student is MIA for 21 days. They haven't cited Linds for an attendance violation ... because she frequently waited until the 21st day to attend.

Her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, said: "We have received no negative written report from the program and contend Ms. Lohan is therefore in compliance."

Yes, but therein lies the rub. She (barely) met the school's requirement of attending every 21 days, but violated the court's order. The judge may take issue.

At Lindsay's progress hearing on May 20, she is expected to be called out for habitually violating the judge's requirement to attend classes every seven days.

The judge made it clear to Lindsay that if probation is violated, she's going to jail, no more second, third, fourth chances. And probation was violated. A ton.

We don't suspect the hard-partying lifestyle evidenced by countless news stories and Lindsay Lohan pictures is likely to give her much wiggle room, either.
