According to authorities in California, Lindsay Lohan violated her probation by getting into a physical altercation with a former staff member at the Betty Ford Center and could face further legal ramifications if the district attorney’s office determines she should face battery charges relating to the incident.
For a while, it seemed Lohan was in the clear; after initially declaring she’d seek legal comeuppance in the incident, Dawn Holland, the former Betty Ford staffer, has since declared she will not cooperate with the investigation and does not want charges filed, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said Monday. However, the department continued its investigation into the incident and will forward its findings to the district attorney, who will determine whether to charge the actress with battery. As a condition of her probation, Lohan cannot be found in violation of any law.
The news comes just one day after Lohan completed her court-ordered treatment at the Betty Ford Center and was given permission to leave the drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility (whether she has or not remains unclear).
