Lindsay's Battery 'Victim' to Cops: 'Back Off!'

1/5/2011 10:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The former Betty Ford employee who filed the battery report against Lindsay Lohan thinks the Palm Desert Police Department is out of line by gunning for LiLo, and thinks cops should "back off."

Dawn Holland, who was fired from Betty Ford after the December 12 altercation, tells TMZ, "Lindsay has got enough to deal with as is ... they just need to back off and let it go."

Holland is suspicious of the Palm Desert cops' motive, saying they seem to be going way out of their way to nail Lindsay.

Holland adds, "Jail is not going to rehabilitate her."

It's so obvious she's been paid off. I will be so disappointed if the police do drop the case. I am so sick and tired of Lindsay getting chance after chance after chance. Basically getting away with everything with little to no consequences for her actions.

I guess Dawn is getting better. She took her neck brace off. And the body cast has been reduced to a knee brace.

"Jail is not going to rehabilitate her."
I wonder what Dawn Holland thinks LL needs, or if this is a statement that Holland believes LL is hopeless.
Obviously, she is stating that she doesn't believe LL's rehabilitation HAS OCCURED YET, does she?
Well, kids, let me explain something.
Vitims pull out of their accusation when their fear of the victimizer either goes down, but more frequently it goes UP.
This woman has NOT RECANTED.
This is he fear talking. This is PR.

LOHANITES SCORE A 3 POINT GAIN FOR THIER TEAM!

This is an excellent PR spin. Unfortunately, IT WILL NOT WORK.
Cops, and investigaters, don't just "drop it"..because you see, opening cans of worms, shows investigators things that, although the complaintant might not be interested in the case anymore, the investigator has found MANY INTERESTNG THINGS.
When you call 911 there is FOLLOW THROUGH.
Cops aint picking on LL. They are doing their JOB. ANd we see kids scream about Cops are just making a big deal out of this, and they should let it go. ...NO.
That isn't the way it works when you PULL THE GOVERNMENT INTO YOUR LIFE AND ASK THEM TO SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS.
LINSDAY CALLED 911 AND THEY ARE STILL TRYING TO HELP HER.
We, at our "lab" here, are sorry, Dawn Holland, that LL polluted your life, and you are frightened. You will NEVER go to jail or prision for what you did. They can hassle you honey, they can't do ****. Try to not be afraid of them. They are wind, and can be blown over if you are PERSISTANT.
YOU, Ms. Dawn Holland are a HERO for trying to do your job in SERVICING VERY SICK PEOPLE towards RECOVERY.
Everyone KNOWS, LL is a sh*thead.
We HONOR you for standing up to that little sh&t!
Do not be afraid. YOu have done a GREAT THING.
YOU, smile, when here they cuff her and take her in. Because of your police report and your refusal to let this little arrogant sh*t distrupt a HEALING CENTER, changes in health care will occur, that will benefit society for a long time. Look what you DID!!!! ..Shhheet, and she's just a washed up actress!. Who do you think is important between the two of you NOW LIND? When that jail door goes clang, you just tell yourself, "Yeah, that bit*h C**t tech aint NOTHING."
Bigger than you, isn't she?
We Salute ALL of those who stand up to BullSH*T!

Perhaps Lohan has been performing lesbian sexual favors for the "victim" to shut her up?

She got paid off but its not like they paid her anything close to how much she made working as a nurse for a year. She will need to find work at a new rehab center. If thats her profession. She won't be going back to betty ford but linday's mother can make it diffcult to find another job if the charges don't get dropped.

the lady was not paid...dawn holland is engaging in self preservation , because dawn holland could be going to jail over selling lindsay medical information , which is a crime , by violating hippaa , so she better talk nice about lindsay lohan.. because if lindsay goes after her . then my beautiful will be doing some serious jail time . this is dawn holland hopeing that lindsay does not aggressively go after her legally . it is one thing to lose your job , it is another thing to go to jail over it . so i can see lindsay using the threat of jail as leverage, but not paying her off . tmz already paid her for the "pay for comment " scandal. ...get a clue .

Not buying it. She was injured by Lindsay, regardless of the situation. Just look at her hand. They HAVE to have given her something to get her to spin these tales. My guess is they are holding the HIPPA violation over her head. Her attitude change makes no sense otherwise. She lost her job over the incident. Someone is giving her something..... Bottom lie, her first interview was the truth (allegedly paid or not).

******RIDDLE ME THIS*******

Why is it that Lindsay Lohan's "rights" are only ever violated when she is busy breaking the LAW?

Isn't that an ODD coincidence?

It WAS civil conspiracy until lindsay called 911, now its criminal conspiracy. Thinking this aint gonna be "let go". Drink up Linds, maybe even get in the car and drive to Culver City?? They love you in Culver City...

Yes, the police should back off. If the Betty Ford clinic says Lindsey Lohan was clean, then that's what goes. Seems like some people in the police force are obsessed with LL and out to destroy her. I advice LL to not visit clubs or drive a car for the next months. Even if she stays sober and drives flawlessly, the police will try and nail her.

There was a video a while back of some homeless dude robbing a convenience store. The fuzz was in the store giving him instructions, i.e. drop the items, hands up, etc...

Dude kept muttering, "Back off, man", "Gimme a break" as he continued to pocket Ho-Hos and jerky.

I hope the footage of the whole Lohan family looking for clemency is as entertaining.


But in the meantime, what say Linds, maybe take a quick drive to Whittier? How about the TGIF in Fullerton - you should go to Fullerton, they love you in Fullerton...

Not for nothing, Ronson and Lohan living door to door in those twin monstrosities on Menace Way is just a stank-ho mess. Good that the Lovelace biopic fell through, Linda looks like Eleanor Roosevelt next to Lohan.

It seems that "pulling a 419" is catching on a phrase already locally, if you are out of the loop, it means "epic fail"...
