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.

@Delmar "32. 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."

Why are you waiting for the "offical" word from Lindsays Lawyer?? Shawn won't tell the truth if she can get away with it.

I'm waiting for someone who knows what they are talking about to tell me what "trouble" Lindsay might be in. Does this mean Lindsay is removed from rehab and goes to jail?

pammie8,
Normally I would say what you said, but I have been around this type of surroundings working around it and a family member in the situation. Some of those staff members can be bullies. Can't stand that type. Of course, Linday could have had an attitude too. no doubt about it.

Wiley,
Even though I think Lindsay is a spoiled girl, like I said some staff take an advantage. Then the story comes out on Lindsay's side of the story. So you can't just say lindsay is rotten and it is her fault. It isn't always. You got to think beyond the box.

Why would the FBI investigate stalking of Lindsay that doesn't go out of state? The Sheriff's dept. should be handling this. That being said, she's in a damn rehab to get better....NOT to go out! If she's sooo scared, then stay put!

You people are so stupid. Can you all not see that this "person" is obviously gonna try to sue for money. There was prolly just a get away from me and a movement away from the staffer and she acted hurt all for money. this is so obvious. Lilo has never actually resulted to actual assault. The reason she would force charges is to help a lawsuit. Just watch and see. If she does sue she should be fired then sued right back . This "person" is just out for money . You'll see. just watch

If they're serious about getting better, they shouldn't even be at a bar. I think this and the other recent incident show that she's not taking this seriously at all. The staffer treated her the exact same way everyone else is treated, but because Lindsay is use to getting her way and everyone kissing her ass, she suddenly thinks she was treated unfairly and that the woman had it out for her - what a load of BS! I can tell you from experience that in this instance, charges would be brought against a normal person. I wonder if the law will once again look the other way and let Lindsay get away with something other people don't?

This is one of the saddest cases, ever! This young girl seems to be in extreme and desperate trouble with little help from those closest to her. Her parents seem to be all about themselves and to heck with their daughter. Surely, there must be someone who can successfully pick her brain to get to the bottom of her enormous problems. I hope and pray she gets the help she so desperately needs before she destroys herself, completely.
