Cops: Lindsay Under the Influence at Betty Ford

1/5/2011 2:22 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Palm Desert Police Department officials believe Lindsay Lohan was under the influence of drugs or alcohol while at Betty Ford.

Lindsay Lohan Probation Violation

As TMZ first reported, the PD believes Lindsay committed violations of her probation -- apart from the alleged December 12 battery.   Sources say the cops believe Lindsay was under the influence of drugs or alcohol -- which would be a violation of her probation in the Beverly Hills DUI case.  And they believe she violated probation by refusing to submit to a breathalyzer.

The former Betty Ford staffer who filed the battery complaint against Lindsay -- and then said she didn't want Lindsay prosecuted -- has told TMZ she believed Lindsay was under the influence of alcohol on the night of the incident.

It's curious that Palm Desert cops are weighing in on a probation violation outside their jurisdiction.

But Shawn Chapman Holley  tells TMZ, "I had numerous conversations with Betty Ford counselors and doctors and it was never suggested by anyone that she ever drank or used drugs."

Holley adds, "Her discharge letter is totally consistent with that."

"It's curious that Palm Desert cops are weighing in on a probation violation outside their jurisdiction."

Oh yes this is all just a big conspiracy against Lindsay Lohan, this will go down in history just like water gate. I cant wait for the 911 tape to be realesed so we can all hear how crazed Lindsay was. Why would the cops lie? Why would the BF tech make this all up? So are we to beilive that EVERYONE is lying. Oh Judge Revel had it out for her to right. Poor Lindsay everyone has it out for her.

Like I have said drama goes where ever Lohan goes. Something big happened at BF that is why Lindsay went from getting her picture taken driving around in her BMW and shopping everyday to vanashing in thin air. Also this is off topic but Lindsay Lohan is the only celeb that I can recall who poses for paps while in rehab.

Lock this mess up already!

Well duh! The crime happened in their jurisdiction! Within the State of California, completely within the Courts jurisdiction

But Shawn Chapman Holley tells TMZ, "I had numerous conversations with Betty Ford counselors and doctors and it was never suggested by anyone that she ever drank or used drugs."

its called job security.

Holley adds, "Her discharge letter is totally consistent with that."

She bailed to get out of the local's jurisdiction.

Why is everyone looking the other way with this girl? She obviously still has problems with alcohol and drugs. They are doing her no favor not prosecuting her or putting her back in jail for breaking probation. This doesn't make sense.

Betty Ford just gave her room and board so she wouldn't have to go to jail... seriously she was caught out and about shopping, bars, late nights several times... and I have asked several times how does that fall under "Rehab"? She needs to go to jail and stay there.

no budget studios    

who cares! Let her drink and use drugs. She's not driving. It's not the cops' job to stop her from drinking. Plus she's hot, so again, Who Cares!

Betty Ford appears to be expensive but ineffective, and it looks like the clinic enables and covers up for celebrities. Maybe that's why it's "graduates" keep relapsing and returning to the clinic for more "treatment". Could that ineffectiveness be part of Betty Ford's business plan?
