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.

I can't believe Dawn got fired for doing her job. I also can't believe there are not going to prosecute on this. They evidently have this "kelly" who wanted to talk about it. Unbelievable!

I think Dawn Holland started out legit...she was clearly pissed off but acted very professional in that scenario. Those idiots should never have hopped a fence and bottom line, if Lindsey wasn't drinking she should of just taken the breathalizer test and called it a day...she's guilty but at the same time Ms. Holland also got the money bug and ruined an opportunity for us to watch Lindsey rot in prison where she should be.

wtf do people expect? Rehab isn't a playground. Dawn Holland (caretaker) was being paid to deal with people on withdrawal. That includes relapses such as this one.

Holland overstepped her boundaries by talking to the police without talking to her bosses.
She deserved to be fired.

Dawn Holland was not attacked. Lindsay was trying to call the police for help. Dawn Holland clearly wanted her off the phone and therefore was trying to take the phone away from LINDSAY.

Dawn Holland was not attacked! Lindsay was in rehab seeking help! Dawn Holland was a chemical tech. Dawn Holland tried to frame this entire scene from the get go...then she broke HIPPA laws and gave out Lindsay Lohan's name in this phone call. You don't do that in a Medical Facility. Then she also sought out money to sell her story to the tabloids.

Wonder what she got for recording this conversation that you just heard from TMZ?

"Dawn Holland: "Get ready to be sued."

LiLo: "What? Do you want money?"

add in the fact that Holland also said that 2 of the 3 women smelled of alcohol... and Lindsey was not either of the 2.

Why is it that TMZ now feels it is the arbiter for everything. The DA declines to prosecute and now TMZ will release info and pursue until something comes of it.

I used to really enjoy TMZ but it seems lately they are more concerned with generating the stories based on the agenda and outcome they desire rather than just follow it and report accordingly.

Part of worker training in rehabs is dealing with difficult situations that occur when dealing with newly sober people and their emotions. I am sure lindsay was not the first nor would she have been the last person in recovery that Dawn would have problems with. The difference being the celebrity Dawn could generate with this story.

sadly, it seems that regardless of what lindsay does or doesnt do anymore the only outcome that will please TMZ and the masses is a dead lindsay.. which is to bad.. instead of hoping for the best, it seems more people are wanting the worst.

Hey what happened to Lohan just wanting to be known as just "Lindsay" oh that's right, this way Lohan can sue anyone she thinks is using her "likeness." Gimme a break.

What happened to her rant of sueing the store for trying to make money off her? The store hasn't made a dime because no one cares about her and the tape.

The tape was got somewhere only around 40k. That's an absoulte insult. Lohan knows it.
