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.

Nothing that $25-50k to a certain "staffer" can't fix. This is all

Oh my, these posts are horrible. People that have an addiction need love and support. And of course an occasional kick in the back side as was noted by several posters. But that does not indicate the person is bad. They just need strength and support from those around them to help them. It is the duty of her loved ones to help her. All of the strangers, posters, on this board will never help. She needs that from her loved ones. Can anyone remember the movie Pay it Forward? It really does work. Send prayers and good thoughts to everyone in your life and go out of your way to help others.

Can't wait to add to my collection of Lindsay'smug shots in an orange jump suit, again. (I often wondered if she had Valentino or Dior custom design the jump suits she normally wears for such mug shots or are they just jail-issued that are supplied by the various law enforcement agencies she frequently visits).

Duh    

Antagonizing a long-term drug user/abuser/addict-alcoholic who has been in treatment for about 3 months is a bad idea. If the staffer felt the situation was getting too volatile, then she should have walked away or gotten another nurse or doctor to help mediate the situation. And a BAR? Really? You think Betty Ford is letting their patients (er, "clients") go to bars? Maybe restaurants that serve alcohol but not places where the primary business is serving drinks.

The staffer has a case of The Burnouts and saw a way to get at the least a few days off, and at most some notoriety & maybe some cash. If she were smart she'd have realized that there are people worth millions and millions more than LiLo will ever be, no matter how great her comeback if she manages to pull off sobriety long enough to ever be employable/insurable again. I'm not a LiLo fan (she misses my demographic by a few years) but I empathize with her sh|+ty parents and really hope she beats the odds.
