The Palm Desert Police Department is now investigating an altercation that occurred after Lindsay and her roommates reportedly went to a bar and came back home.  Upon arriving at the house, the incident with a female staffer from Betty Ford allegedly went down.

The police received a call at 1:03 AM on December 12 for "hand-to-hand battery."

Cops came to Betty Ford after receiving the call and interviewed both the staffer and Lindsay.  We're told the staffer "desired prosecution."

We're told when the police finish the investigation, the case will be forwarded to prosecutors for review.

Lindsay needs a break, she may feel trapped and that people are always against her, she better stand up for herself and get her mind right so she can stand up for herself. As long as she is high or half drunk she will always be a victim to the cruel world. Life is bad enough for sober people. In a day and time when people thirst for money, anyone can say things that will get her in trouble because she is vulnerable. She is a pay check for a lot of people all because she is vulnerable. She needs prayers!

And people really still don't think Lindsay should have sat on her butt in jail for 6 months before going to a REAL rehab? Not the Betty Ford Party Rehab? We all know she only checked herself in there to avoid the sentence she deserved. I hope, if this is real, the staff member nails her. Talk about feeling entitled! Lindsay needs a wake=up call. Maybe assault and battery charges will be it. Kidnapping and her other violent acts weren't.

I think it is just too late for this girl---I fear she will just be another statistic. If she could get rid of her "rules don't apply to me" mentality, she may just live a long life.
