Lindsay Lohan -- The Chick Touched Me First

12/21/2010 12:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan claims she did NOT strike first in a physical altercation with a female staff member at the Betty Ford Clinic ... but she did push back ... this according to sources close to LiLo.

Lindsay Lohan

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

Lindsay claims when she walked into the BFC -- a female staff member was "unfairly" scolding her about the situation  ... and demanded the actress take a drug/alcohol test. We're told it was during the heated exchange that the woman "put her hands on Lindsay."

Lindsay claims she told the woman, "Take your hands off of me" and then "pushed back."

As we previously reported, local police received a call at 1:03 AM for "hand-to-hand battery" -- and LiLo was named as a suspect. The staffer wants LiLo prosecuted for criminal battery.

We're told Lindsay feels the staffer has had it out for her for a while ... and with LiLo reaching the end of her stay at the clinic, the actress believes the staffer was looking for a final confrontation.

No, she didn't refuse. The tests were taken and both were negative. It was the staffers attitude and putting her hands on Lindsay that started the fuss.

I believe they were letting her out as part of her recovery, she has to make her way back into the real world again and I think thats why they let her out, and also trust, I'm assuming someone like her in order to recover has to know people can trust her, but aparently not, going to a bar while being in rehab is just dumb, why would you put yourself in an eviorment(sp?) that oozes everything your trying to stay away from, I really think she is just ignorant to everything around her and unfortunately will need a major kick in the ass to set herself straight, I truly hope that this will help her and not lead her down the course of destruction, I'm still hoping for ya linds and really humble yourself, follow the rules and realize that there are so many families who lost loved ones from the very things that you are fortunantely getting help for, honestly these peole would of loved their family members to of gotten the help that you are getting, don't waste it, don't spit in the face of every person who never got the chance that your getting.

I will say again...REHAB IS A JOKE and the addicts use it to AVOID jail time...

Judge: "Little Johnny or Lindsey...you've been charged with DUI, drug possession and trying to run a car off the road...my little dears...do you want to go to the mean old jail or the comfy and lovely REHAB?" (Of course I and all of my judge friends, D.A.'s and Criminal Attorney's all are INVESTED in the Rehab industry)

Johnny and Lindsey: Why YES, thank you nice judge! We would love to go to REHAB instead of the mean old jail where WE BELONG!" Oh, and could you have the TAXPAYERS pay for it? Thank you! Oh...and tell your family to stay off the streets,I'll be out in 30 days and I'm REALLY GOING TO NEED A DRINK!

AND....SCENE!

much ado about nothing. If the staffer did put her hands on Lindsay she's in big trouble. You DON'T touch patients, its the patients who have the problems, the staffers are supposed to be professional. This happened over a week ago right? If the police or prosecutors have any sense this will be dropped, stop wasting tax payers resources. On second thoughts, charge the staffer!

Staffer: "Ms. Lohan, you are ten minutes late."
Lindsay: "Oh, Ms. Staffer, I'm very sorry. There were legitimate reasons for me being late but I know that that is no excuse, I should have left early enough to get here in plenty of time. I accept full responsibility."
Staffer: "That's okay, honey; but according to the rules, we have to do a substance test if you break curfew."
Lindsay: "No problem! Just give me the cup and I'll go take a pee. Again, so sorry for inconveniencing the staff here and breaking the rules. I'll try not to do it again."

Why was there a need for a "heated exchange?"

What a lot of fuss about nothing, staffer grabbed Lilo, she pushed back...and? This was over a week ago, Lindsay was moved to a different sober house. If she was in the wrong, she would have been kicked out. This staffer should know you NEVER put hands on patients. There must be witnesses so we'll know the truth. BTW the alcohal & drug test Lindsay took on the night was negative, just in case anyone was wondering.

As usual it is the other person who is at fault. It's never because Lindsay did something wrong. Will this girl never learn?

It's already starting up with her again and she is not even out of rehab yet.

If Lindsay hit the staffer, the tech has every right to persue a lawsuit.

And what was she doing out at 1 am in the morning in Palm Desert?
No one believes for one minute that Lindsay will stay clean once she gets out. Her family is nuts when they try to tell that to the public.

Linds is not violent--she's no naomi campbell throwing cell phones and lashing out--her thing is self-destruct

Oh yeah, she's not violent???? How about when the picture window was smashed when she was living with Samantha. Maybe the window was just being "unfair" and broke on it's own.
