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."

If I think I'm wrong, I'll apologize. It's the right thing to do.

Everyone who is saying that this woman got a payoff is dead wrong. I believe that this woman stood to lose just as much, if not more, than Lindsay. First, she could be prosecuted for breaking HIPAA laws (federal medical privacy laws). Second, she could likely be charged (civilly, at least) for filing a false workers comp claim on her 'strained' arm when and if that information came to light. Thirdly, this woman just seems downright shady - Maybe Lindsay and team has some additional information on her that could (further) destroy her life (and credibility). When the lawyers of both sides talked, they agreed that it was in the best interest of each of the women to just drop it and move on....

this woman realized that LL doesnt have money and all that she would get was Lindsays ass thrown in jail and thats it.. that why she is after betty ford now. thats my frist opinion... second: this woman is a big liar and she got afraid and dropped charges. LL is barely paying her stay at betty ford and if she had money that woman wouldnt stop she would suck a lot of money out of lindsay, so that means that she was lying coz ll doenst have money to pay her off.

Look at the people that say she was paid off. what happen to thinking lindsay is so broke? or is she only broke when you want to trash her?

the fact holland went to tmz and told them a story that didn't even match her own statement was a red flag to her real motives.

Never once did holland say in her statement that lindsay was drinking or was acting intoxicated, never once did she say she smelled alcohol on lindsay's breath, never once did she say she was injured. if curfew was at 12:30am, then if they left earlier in the day, there is no reason to "sneak out" as they are allowed to leave the house, so there would also be no reason to scale any wall. By her own statement they didn't scale the wall sneaking back since she said they all walked through the front door. The fact that it was Lindsay herself that called the cops was also quite telling.

Right now this woman could face federal charges if she is found to have broken HIPPA laws. She has much more at stake than Lindsay does.

#49 You are so wrong about addicts. Having a 'pattern' of having a drink every day does not make you an alcoholic. Having a 'pattern' of smoking weed every weekend does not make you an addict either. It has to due with much more than a pattern, and must include physical and/or mental addiction. It also must lead to problems in other areas of your life (educational, vocational, relationship, etc). Get your info straight before coming on this posting and looking like a dumb***!!!

so i guess story went down like this: we all know lindsay has a bad baaaad temper so she acted like a diva and she didnt take a breathalyzer, that when this woman got physical with lindsay and as ll says holland touched her first. then the lawyers met and they discussed one thing that ll woul be thrown into jail fornot taking a breathalyzer and that woman would be sued for getting abusive towards lindsay. so they understood that both of them were wrong and moved on.

Hmm. How much would it take to buy off a tech at Betty Ford that just lost her job? I'm sure keeping your mouth shut pays better than $9 to $10 per hour. : )

I gotta agree with the other posters. She got a payoff to keep Lohan from jail.

TMZ reported this all wrong, there was never an assault committed by Lindsay Lohan. Read the full account written by Dawn Holland!

TMZ lead people to think there was by their headline, TMZ should own up to their error!
