Lindsay Lohan Case -- Over and Out?

1/14/2011 7:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The lawyer for the woman who accused Lindsay Lohan of battering her says he's been told ... if his client submits a declaration to the D.A. stating she's not pursuing the case, the investigation will be dropped ... And she just submitted the declaration.

Lindsay Lohan Case
Dawn Holland, who has been fired from Betty Ford, says in the declaration -- obtained by TMZ -- "I do not desire Ms. Lohan prosecuted for the events of December 12, 2010," adding, "I will not answer any questions to any policing or prosecutorial agencies regarding the events of December 12, 2010."

Holland's lawyer, Keith Davidson, tells TMZ, the D.A.'s Office informed him today ... if such a declaration were filed, the case against Lindsay would be rejected.

The declaration follows an angry letter Davidson sent to the D.A., scolding prosecutors for trying to interview his client after she repeatedly told them she wanted nothing to do with the case.

The D.A.'s Office had no comment and says the matter is still under review.

TRUTH what part of this article do you NOT understand?

"if his client submits a declaration to the D.A. stating she's not pursuing the case, the investigation will be dropped ... And she just submitted the declaration."

For such a criminal justice know-it-all you've been hard pressed to get anything right so far. Because A. You suffered a head injury B. You have multiple personality disorder because you are a doctor one day and probation officer the next C. You are cross-eyed and reading a different article than the one you are commenting on. Or D. You have the mental infromation retention of a gnat on PCP...which is obvious.

I don't "smell" a pay off. I see an employee who can get in serious trouble for breaking confidentiality of a patient. Most likely she could lose her license and her credibility to have any job anywhere. My guess is that she exaggerated. There hasn't not been any evidence supporting this supposed refusal of a drug test. Only one person is saying it and it happens to be the employee. She exaggerated and took it back. The ex employee was labeled as a recovering addict herself. That right there is a credibility issue no matter how long she has been clean.

Why is this different than a spouse who is battered, goes to the ER, gets treatment, says what happened and then the next day recants? Isn't it the law you have to cooperate with the police and answer questions if there was a suggestion by you a crime was committed? Aren't there medical reports to substantiate if she was injured?

@ figure-it-out that is "thinkaboutit" who claims to be a felony PO....that posts on TMZ about his "work"

Nothing was going to come out of this ridiculous investigation

Lindsay is back in court in 42 days and if she doesn't fail any tests until then she will complete probation.

Go back and read Dawn Holland's original police report. TMZ paid her for it. She didn't mention Lindsay drinking nor did she mention she was injured. She did mention these things only in her interview with TMZ. How dumb is she? she bumped up her story with lies and now she can't go to court and lie under oath.

Lindsay doesn't have to pay off anyone, firstly she's not that wealthy and secondly all the witness reports back up her story. Don't forget, it was Lindsay who called 911.

Why don't you haters look at the facts as we know them and not jump to hateful conclusions. Do you REALLY think the DA would drop this if Lindsay was guilty? As Harvey Levin said on TMZ live, the Riverside police are out of control and he's never seen anything like this. If this was anyone else other than Lindsay Lohan it would have been dropped from day one.

And no, I'm not Dina Lohan nor do I have anything to do with Lindsay Lohan's family or friends. Haters here seem to think any comment supporting Lindsay must be a Lohan source...its your paranoia.

The only person who said Lilo refused a drug test was Dawn Holland and she's a liar. Fess up peeps, Holland saw the big bucks, she betrayed Betty Ford, her job and her profession for $13,000 from TMZ and thought she could get more from other mags etc. WRONG duh

I would sure like to know what they paid that woman to keep her mouth shut. That or what the threat was so she wouldn't talk. Someday, it will all come back on Lindsay. So glad I'm not her.

Agreed 19. This chick was looking for a hand out. She was the ONLY person to make allegations of an assault (in which she wore a wrist brace for 2 days and it miraculously disappeared 48 hours later.) Anyone can say anything about anyone. This gal (potentially) set BF to catch a FAT AZZ lawsuit. Granted it was public knowledge that LiLo was there but BY LAW if you were to call BF they could not acknowledge LiLo was even there. Even to cops without a court order. Its called violating your civals rights of privacy. LOOK UP 'HIPPA LAW.' That bozo TRUTH could of told you that since she is a probation officer and all. If there was ANY 'backroom deal' it was that BF was just happy Lilo didnt chase them down over violating her rights. THATS WHY SHE WAS FIRED is cause the chick was a liability. That gal made her bed fast in assuming she might be able to get money out of Lilo for a bogus allegation she sprained her wrist while Lilo pulled a phone form her hand? PLEASE. She got cold feet when she realized she was going to have to pony up some serious money to try to sue Lilo over a bogus claim in which she was the only one to testify on her befalf. Clearly BF didnt have her back...and on the note of testifying nobody is FORCED to speak to the police hence:Miranda Law and right to remain silent. Also what you tell an officer doesnt neccesarily need to be true because you are not under oath. Of course its illegal to file a false police report but that is different. Cops are LEGALLY able to lie to you, such as "Your buddy said you were the one driving the car....ect." You can lie to a cop all you want, just as he can to you. Its not perjury because you arent under oath, but its better to not speak to them at all because they are only speaking to you so that you are either a witness or slowly incriminating yourself.

FREAKING WUSS A**! We ALL know that LiLo is a lying tramp who manipulates everyone around her. She must have paid Dawn off! LILO skated away into the sunset and no one did sh*t to stop her. What a Shame, now we will have more crap about her in the news for months to come instead of her wasting away in jail and the rest of the world going on about their lives and getting the chance to forget about Fire Crotch!

Another attempt at LL hitting a "bottom" and saved by the almighty dollar.

Let's continue to kick this can down the road Lohans cause it is not going to get any easier as the days go by unless LL hits her bottom and starts on the real road to recovery.... not the Betty Ford's Ripoff Center's road to destruction.

Too bad .... it would have helped to have this one play out without all the big bucks stopping it.

So typical Hollywood.... "Let's throw money at the problem and see if it goes away." Guess what? It never does.

THIS WAS NOT A PAY OFF BY LINDSAY LOHAN....SHE ALREADY GOT PAID BY TMZ. THE PENALTY FOR WHAT MISS HOLLAND DID CAN BE 10 YEARS AND 250,000 FINE . THIS IS CALLED DAWN HOLLAND NOT WANTING TO DO FEDERAL TIME FOR SELLING CONFIDENTIAL MEDICAL INFORMATION TO THE PRESS ...PERIOD . YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THE LAW IS...TO UNDERSTAND WHY DAWN HOLLAND IS REFUSING TO PERSUE THE MATTER ....GET A CLUE ., AN D NOW YOU HAVE A WITNESS TO THE WHOLE THING ...ADAM CASE . THAT WAS A MAJOR VIOLATION OF HIPPAA...EVEN IF LINDSAY SAID " FIRE THE BITCH "
