Lindsay Betty Ford Clash

Violent 911 Confrontation

4/1/2011 2:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained the 911 call made by Lindsay Lohan during the nuclear argument she had with Betty Ford staffer Dawn Holland -- an argument Holland says turned violent. 

It all went down on December 12, when the staffer -- Dawn Holland -- claims she busted Lindsay and two other girls jumping a wall at Betty Ford at around 1 AM. -- after curfew.  During the 911 call, Lindsay and Dawn were both on the line on separate phones.  Lindsay says, "She's freaking me out!"

When Dawn tried to make Lindsay take a breathalyzer, she says "Lindsay Lohan pushed me and hit me with the phone."  Dawn claims she knows the other two girls Lindsay was with were drunk, "reeking of alcohol."

During the call, Dawn claims she grabbed the phone to talk to the dispatcher ... but Lindsay ripped the phone from her hand ... spraining Dawn's wrist in the process.

As we first reported, the Riverside County District Attorney declined to prosecute Lindsay over the incident.

Not once does she say lindsay was drunk. Not once does she say she reeks of alcohol. she says 2 reeked, NOT 3. The most she said about lindsay is that she was being disrepectful and rude. You can hear lindsay talking calmly in the background. If she were drunk, she would be yelling and screaming in the background.

this was a personality clash that got out of hand. big deal.

@ lolo, and to answer your question. Dawn was FIRED for going straight to the gossip media and running her mouth about an incident that happened at work and involved patient confidentiality.

OF COURSE SHE GOT FIRED. So would anyone else in America who works at a medical facility and pulled a publicity stunt like that. You have to be stupid not to understand why she got fired.

This is what goes on in a well-respected rehab center? I'm an RN and find this type of behavior by "staff" egregious. I'm not defending Lindsay, but she was the patient, not Dawn.

Sad sad    

You can't fully judge the situation by an audio. You do not see what is going on. Only what Dawn is saying. It sounds like she took the phone from Lindsay. She caused her own injuries in my opinion.

This is rehab , not kiddy school and crap happens . Holland ought to have talked to the police only after she had talked with Betty Ford managers. She is dead wrong here and the tape proves it . Rehab is private or should be. Charges need to be brought against Holland for violation of the people in her care .
Lindsay did do the test and passed .Betty Ford already filed their report to the courts saying that Hard to say what Holland problem is but she ought never be allowed to work in a care position again .

"Do you want money"? is how the Lohans settle their disputes. The sad fact is, apparently they've not run into someone that can't be bought. What a classless act she is. What sane, respectable girl acts this way? Trash.

Lndsay was there because the Judge allowed her to get treatment instead of going to jail. We all know she only wanted to do 30 days and hopefully avoid jail but 73 days of court ordered treatment was her punishment for doing coke while on supervised probation.
So it doesn't matter how she behaved under the cir***stances she didn't fail any tests and still completed the program.

Exactly the only time Dawn claimed Lindsay was drinking is in the PAID TMZ interview.

I am glad Dawn Holland was fired!

She does not have the personality to work in a rehabilitation center! She is too much a "drama queen" to deal with people with disabilities!

Dawn Holland created drama, otherwise she would not have taped the conversation with the Sheriff's Department. It was taped by her or else we would not hear the dialing into the Sheriff's office!

It was not Dawn Holland's job to approach these girls. They had not been approached by security at this point. Had they been previously approached by security, they would have known why she was there. They clearly were stating they did not know her and why she was there!

@ Nicole, when I think of my friend who was murdered in Cancun last April and her body was found stuffed in a septic tank and the 14 year kid down the street from me who shot two other kids on Venice blvd and than the police shot and killed him, I would hope that the city of Los Angeles would use what little resources that they have in this budget crisis wisely and drop Lindsay.s case.
