Palm Desert PD Gunning for Lindsay From the Get-Go

1/4/2011 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the Palm Desert Police Department was rabidly trying to get Lindsay Lohan arrested just days after her altercation with a Betty Ford Center staffer.

Sources say a police lieutenant contacted L.A. County Deputy Probation Officer Barbara Parker shortly after Lindsay's December 12 run-in with Dawn Holland, asking her to come to Betty Ford and arrest Lindsay for violating her probation.  When Parker told the lieutenant it would be premature to take such drastic action, we're told the lieutenant began arguing with her and it got "extremely heated."

We've learned after the call, the lieutenant's boss called Parker to apologize.

As TMZ reported earlier today, the police are now saying Lindsay violated her probation by committing a battery.  What's interesting is that it's for the L.A. County Probation Department and ultimately a Beverly Hills judge -- not the police in Riverside County -- to conclude if Lindsay violated probation.

Sources tell TMZ ... the L.A. County Probation Department will take no action against Lindsay unless she's convicted of battery in Riverside County.

Dana or Dena, whatever LiLo's mom's name is STOP with your STUIP comments. The ONLY person/people who are defending her are either family/friends or paid personnel.

The "title" to this crappy story should be:

Lindsay Gunning for Palm Desert, L.A. and Riverside PD and the Judical System From the Get-Go (ALSO ALL OF US)

@POOKIE you are right on! F HER, HUH? I feel ya!

Obviously, the good lieutenant has NOT dealt with LA CO Probation, before!

As any rookie already knows: no victim, no crime! If the victim is not pressing charges, why should probation be concerned about a crime that never happened?

If the victim was pressing charges, they could have arrested the bimbo for battery AND a probation violation.

Funny how you can be promoted to a police lieutenant and still not know schitt!

This arrogant little **** will get away with it. But her career is long finished, and her looks are gone. She looks 54 instead of 24.

And just what did the cops see or what do they know that made them "rabid"? It will be interesting to see.

Who in the entire world except Lindsay Lohan would be stupid enough to call the cops on themselves while in treatment? If you are in court ordered treatment and asked to submit to a test, you do it....not call the cops. What a dip****! Now there will be lawsuits flying everywhere. Between her forfeited bails, treatment stays, and many legal woes this whole mess will cost her a fortune.

Actually if i were the lohans.. i probally blame betty ford center for all of this.. they're used to pinning the blame on others afterall and since all this drama started once LL got there.. then its plain as day simple to place the blame/liability on the Betty Ford Center... im sure they'll settle out of court.

this could have been the master plan from the beginning why else did she pick the betty ford center..which allowed.. i repeat ALLOWED her to leave and sneak back in.. i said sneak back in.. not walk back in.. afterall she did climb over a freaking wall after curfew VIOLATING her PROBATION!!!!!!!

But its not Lindsey's fault..she's a victim..

BLAME IS ON BETTY FORD CENTER For their ill-fated Coverup and hiring junkie employee's who get assualted and fired by their patient/clients ....

yep.. this is the reality of lindsey's world

Okay, so who is filing what to see if they can get Lohan's probation revoked and violated. A VIOLATION only means that she violated her current condition(s). And let's get real-here the only reason why any of this is being considered is simply that these PO's are either trying to salvage jobs for themselves or friends or really try and get her violated because simply she did. IF (and even I have a hard time 'writing this') and it is a BIG IF - lohan needs to remember that she is in the 'system'. Every action she takes good or bad is going to be on the radar with her PO and Judge. She messes up and she is back in court via her lawyer trying to convince Judge FOX (or presiding Judge) she is being framed or wronged!

The reality is that simply, Lohan probably did do these things (once a BRAT/BITCH always a BRAT/BITCH) in this report, the fact that the VICTIM has decided to NOT COOPERATE with AUTHORITIES indicates to me that this whole THING is not true and now back-peddling is the only answer. What is even more suspicious - that it took this report to hit the streets about a week after it happened. So what this tells me is that SOMEONE (anyone) is trying to get Lohan to go down - and they are taking no prisoners.

I do not think that this 'story' has any traction, but authority is above the law. And let's face it, Lohan's action this past year (2010) really show how she can play her cards, try and get out of the situation, or just fess up to it and do the right thing - the latter being BF. She fessed up, she needed help, sought it (if only stay out of jail) but hey, regardless once you are in those groups you really do see your life in front of you and 're-think' the road you are on!

This whole story is a 'con-job' gone very bad and awry in the media. But then again, when your train has derailed, you really have nowhere else to go, but back onto the side of those train-tracks.

The PD police are horrible. They will try to get anyone for ANYTHING now-a-days. I feel sorry for Lindsay they must have been gunning for her on day one waiting for her to slip or get into an altercation. Just for press, but so would any other police depo.
