Dawn Holland, who works as a chemical dependency technician at the Betty Ford Clinic, tells us on Sunday, December 12, just after 1 AM, Lindsay and two roommates came home from a night on the town ... violating the curfew policy.

Holland says Lindsay and company jumped a wall, trying to get inside the place she was staying without being noticed. Holland says security stopped the three women, and that's when Lindsay became belligerent and started swearing up a storm.

Holland says she was called to do a breathalyzer on the 3 women, but Lindsay refused and then pushed her.  Holland says she went back in the house and Lindsay called 911 on the house phone. 

Holland says she picked up another house phone to speak with 911, and  Lindsay confronted her again and ripped the phone out of her hand, causing a severe sprain which caused Holland to go out on workers' comp.

Holland says she could smell alcohol on Lindsay's breath.

As for Lindsay's claim Holland touched her first, she says, "I did not touch the woman."

As TMZ first reported, Holland filed a police report and the cops are investigating Lindsay for criminal battery.

If Lindsay refused the test, the judge can jail her for it. Any test that is refused is deemed dirty.

Good luck LL. She is probably getting advice from Dina.

Just the idea that patients of this super expensive rehab, have learned nothing, to equip them to deal with their addiction, is a sad statement for the center itself.
Alcoholism is not an easy "demon to master" and for many it is a life time struggle. Surely in ones :normal course of life", they will be around folks that are drinking, and they as anyone is welcome to drink and enjoy, as "they" are not known to have a problem with it. They unlike Lindsay, are not confirmed addicts.
So "Rule One" of any recovery is to avoid situations where other folks are drinking. If you are attending a wedding, and folks are drinking, well then the state of your recovery is strongly tested, and if your really serious, you manage to abstain.

But you don't chose to go to a bar!, Are you kidding?

You may be able to go to a bar, with a friend, and not drink, with YEARS of sobriety under your belt. And if you remain honest and serious about yourself, your desires, and your recovery, you will most likely be fine. Most folks drink, more power to them. This is part of accepting life, on lifes own terms.
But Lindsay and her "room mates" that need to jump a fence, while returning home drunk, have clearly learned nothing at all.

That 15k per month, would be much better spent, on awesome booze and drugs, than wasting any more time and money on an obvious "charade" they could all care less about. We will watch her funeral within 2 years, likely 1yr, rest assured.

I had worse injuries raking leaves in the backyard, this is a scam if I ever saw one, every one is out to get $$ no matter how much they have to lie, the woman works in a rehab center, there will be conflict, get over it. Lindsey needs to grow up true, but there is no substance to this claim, maybe the woman can team up with the ho that is trying to sell a "kutcher" shirt.

Sounds like the staffer at the Betty FOrd clinic just violated HIPPA and 42 CFR. Looks like a nice lawsuit is in order.

Well i think this lady is in big trouble for opening her mouth about Lindsay.There is a HIPPA law and this lady just broke it.
I don't believe this lady for one second,if Lindsay was doing that bad and breaking rules dont you think Betty Ford would have did something by now. This lady just opened up a can of worms for herself she is in big trouble.I bet she uses that her hand and arm very well at home.

Everyone is so quick to think Lindsay is in the wrong. Yes she has made many mistakes in her short life but that doesn't mean she is automatically a liar. It's very convienient that no blood test was done after the fact if Lindsay indeed did act out and become violent. I think this is just another case of some random feeling the need for 15 minutes of fame and not caring who they hurt to get it. She wouldn't be the first person to use Lindsay to get a little publicity right???
