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.

Waiting for official word from Shawn Chapman Holley, Lindsay's lawyer. Hopefully, Dina Lohan won't say anything. This is a day before Ali's 17th birthday and 4 days before Christmas. Sad.

Lindsay, Lindsay, lindsay......if half of what is written
is true...you seem to still have entitlement issues. No one
has a right to assault another. If one fourth of what is written
about you is true...no one has a right to assault another. Tsk, tsk, tsk

It seems that Lindsay stumbled back into Betty Ford, nearly a gram of cocaine still clinging to her (large) upper lip, and proceeded to crash into a decorative life-sized stuffed camel. When called out by a staff member, Lindsay rasped "Fu#kU!!" and hurled a near-empty bottle of Lindsay Lohan-brand vodka toward the counselor. She predictably missed by several feet and instead destroyed a priceless Ming vase.

Staggering back to her 10,000 sq. ft. suite, she alternately mumbled "I'm a celebrity" and "It was the black guy". Betty Ford has made no official comment, but "insiders" claim that the whole ordeal has been glossed over.... million-dollar bills were somehow involved.

Coincidentally, the "threatening text messages" began to stream into Lindsay's Blackberry immediately afterward.

Let's see, Lindsay ... had you gone into the 12-month faith based program the prison minister offered you back in 2007 you would be going on three years of problem free life.

Gee... I wonder if it would have been worth it? How much time and money have you wasted in the past four years trying to get this old 2007 case behind you?

Hello Linday Lohan. Hello.

Can we stop already with this uninteresting line of reporting? LL is a NOTHING. no one cares about her rehab stint. the woman has to be broke. she doesn't work without causing all sorts of mayhem. and then there's her useless family. just STOP reporting about her.

oh let me guess (and serious too). the staff member got all high and mighty and in the girls faces. Seen this stuff so often and it is always the ill ones fault, which most of the time they have been backed in a corner by a staff member.

Lindsay was ordered to BF by the court in lieu of jail time. She is days away from completing the program and supposedly drug free and she does this? She had her chance, numerous chances, and she always screws up. This explains all the stuff that's been going on and the misinformation that's being leaked and blamed on Michael. So, you think BF should just let all the twits beat on the staff? Lindsay has obviously got mental problems that haven't even been addressed. She won't last long if she can't control her temper. If this is true the entire program has just been a waste once again.

LMAO @ Azlee yeah cause the staffer forced this lowlife loser to go to the bar. She was doing her job and this bitch was more then likely a drunk outta control mess!

What happened to Lindsays stalker shes so scared of? I guess he wont stalk her at a bar right? Lohans are nothing but a bunch if LIARS!

...

so you ignored the 1st story that stated that there was no evidence that LiLo was drinking, and decided she was a raging drunk.

Tell Vanna you'd like to buy a clue!!!

This would be a perfect way to set her up on behalf of BF. Have the staffer continually egg her on until she blows up. Then try to sue and get a piece of the action. I'd pull her out of that **** @ss place. She needs to fly on her own at this point or suffer the consequences.

@ Nicole ... There ya go again ... counting the days LL has left on probation. You are too funny. Probation has nothing to do with recovery.

Jail has nothing to do with recovery. Rehab has nothing to do with recovery. Judges have nothing to do with recovey... though they can help you along...

This is a perfect example of nothing but Lindsay Lohan will help her recovery... no one else... not even you counting down the days she has left on probation.

What will all of a sudden after the probation ends Lindsay Lohan will be on the straight and narrow recovery road?

Does something like this situation say anything to you, Nicole other than you being concerned about the probation days number?

You and your buddy, Lindsay Lohan need to wake up and smell the coffee.

-------------------------------

Wow wow and she only has 66 days of probation left.
