Lindsay's Alleged Victim Will Refuse to Cooperate

12/24/2010 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The ex-Betty Ford staffer who claims Lindsay Lohan assaulted her earlier this month will not only drop her criminal complaint, she'll refuse to cooperate with authorities  ... TMZ has learned.

Dawn Holland, who told TMZ earlier this week how Lindsay ripped a phone from her hand causing a severe sprain, now says Lindsay should not be prosecuted.

Holland's lawyer, Keith Davidson, tells TMZ, "Dawn will not continue to press charges against Lindsay, nor will she be assisting any further in the investigation or prosecution."

And this is interesting ... we asked Davidson how his client would respond if she's subpoenaed, and he said, "She won't."

Davidson says Holland and Lindsay share a common bond -- they're both recovering addicts, Holland does not want "in any way shape or form to do anything that would violate Lindsay's probation or cause an arrest."

Davidson says, "A crime has quite simply not been committed by Ms. Lohan."

Thinkabout-it    

It irritates me that so many people are dissing this Dawn chick b/c she is a former addict. As a felony PO, I can assure everyone that if you go to a rehab facility, 80% of the people that work there will be former addicts. It takes one to know one. Former addicts are the best counselors b/c they KNOW all the BS tricks that addicts play. They know what it feels like to be down and out and to go to drugs. They know how it is to work a 12 step program. Normally, these counselors have many many years of sobriety behind them and education to boot. Techs are just techs, and she was probably just trying to get her foot in the door after getting sober. She was working at BF which WAS considered prestigus-she should have been congratulated. We should also thank Dawn for calling LL on her BS...maybe a lot of other staffers would have looked the other way just b/c it was LL...that obviously what happended at UCLA.

In the future, she should have just do***ented that LL refused the breathalyzer, smelled of booze, missed curfew, etc. etc. etc. and fax that to her probation officer or the Judge. The probation officer then files a motion with the court....( a probation revocation motion that lists all the violations) and she doesn't even need to get in a physical fight with her....unless LL starts it first, like she did this time. And btw, many addicts will use diversion tactics such as calling cops to get the attention off of themselves in order to get out of a BA tests. If you don't work with criminals, you have NO idea how creative and manipulative they will try to be.

I am so ticked off at this Dawn chick! I am 100% sure that her story is credible and true, and why she is backing down is beyond me. How do I know? Because I have worked with hundreds of addicts myself as a PO, and sent many of them to jail and prison for their BS lies and bad behavior-not at all unlike LL's. Betty Ford is a total joke. It is not a court mandated treatment center, it is only in operation b/c of private funds.

If they tell the court of their patients violations, the patient gets "rolled" (rolled out of treatment and into jail) and they lose their funding and profits. So it is VERY VERY likely that they keep any patient violations under wraps and from the court as to not lose their sources of revenue. Any of my offenders would have been rolled out of their for that type of offense, even for 1 refusal of a breathalyzer. And why they have free access to a telephone is beyond me...normal TX places are not like that. They also never get to have access to a car and stay out until 1 am...never! She HAS relapsed and will continue to do so, even if she slides by on this probation. She is finished in Hollywood.

What happened to Lindsay spending Xmas with Mommy? Did Betty Ford decided Lindsay shouldn't go off campus (anymore)?

"Lindsay Lohan gets chocklate santa in stocking."
Nothing at all reported? WOOOOOOOW!
Poor Lindsay must be near having a seizure over it all.
Take care Lindsay. Get ready for major time-out-ski!
Hope it works for you, since none of these other methods have.
