Lindsay Lohan --

Escape Story Is BS

10/14/2010 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's lawyer says the story that Lindsay somehow tried to "escape" rehab to get a soda is "absurd and untrue."

Lindsay Lohan escapes jail.
Shawn Chapman Holley tells TMZ, she spoke with Lindsay's counselors yesterday and there was absolutely no mention made of any attempt by Lindsay to cross the line.

Holley adds, "The counselor gave Lindsay an unqualified glowing report on her progress."

TMZ first reported ... Lindsay is at the Betty Ford Clinic.  We've independently confirmed ... there's a soda machine in Lindsay's ward, allowing her to walk a matter of feet in order to satisfy a caffeine fix.

The thing is...she's been in rehab several times. Every time she goes in, she gets "glowing reports" and since I doubt *every single doctor* she has seen is willing to put their license on the line for her, it really doesn't seem like she's addicted to anything, so much as that she continues to make bad choices. She can kick her vices in rehab as many times as she likes, she doesn't seem to WANT to change and so as soon as she gets back out she'll start all over again.

We all know she's in rehab to avoid going back to jail over her prbation violation (well, one of the numerous...) not because she actually wants to stop using drugs.

As a felony probation officer, I KNOW A LOT about sending criminals like LINDSAY to inpatient drug/alcohol treatment (AKA REHAB). NO facility that I know of offers patients CAFFENINE! NONE! MOST will have soda type machines yes, but NOT with caffeine colas or suggary soda's....most are decaff. diet drinks or water etc.

So don't be so quick to discredit TMZ, and why would we believe anything LINDSAY's mother or lawyer has to say? People, she has a hearing coming up next week!!!!! It would not look good for her to be ABSCONDING from Betty Ford! But ADDICTS DO IT ALL THE TIME!!....TRUST ME....I KNOW....I'VE SEEN IT HUNDREDS OF TIMES! Lindsay is trying to Avoid jail next's spin time for Shaun Holley.....all defense attorneys are the same...they call it defending their client...I call it lying.

I've been to Betty Ford. They have soda machines, but none of the soda has caffeine in it, Caffeine is prohibited at Betty Ford.
