Lindsay Lohan

Facing New Lawsuit

Assault & Battery

7/21/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan dished out 8 to 10 seconds of pain when she attacked a Betty Ford employee last year ... so says the alleged victim who's filing a lawsuit against the actress -- but her story appears to have one MAJOR inconsistency.   

Dawn Holland -- who now goes by Dawn Bradley -- is all set to file the legal docs today ... in which she claims Lohan was combative and violent when she tried to give the actress a breathalyzer test at the rehab center back in  December ... after Lohan had allegedly snuck off the property to go boozing. 

In the lawsuit, Holland claims Lohan grabbed her right wrist and began "twisting and pulling it for 8-10 seconds."

But here's the rub -- back when Dawn filed her initial incident report with the BFC, she says Lindsay "grabbed [her] right hand," but NEVER mentioned the 8-10 wrist "twist" that allegedly contributed to her injuries.


Holland -- who was eventually fired from Betty Ford Center -- claims she suffered "great mental, physical and nervous pain and suffering" from the alleged assault and battery.

Dawn is demanding AT LEAST $1 million to make things right.

We contacted Lindsay's lawyer.  So far ... no comment.

To Just Because and Christine--

Since Dawn Holland lost her "job" because of this incident, she is "entitled'" as an American citizen, to be compensated for her lost. According to the incident report, Lindsey Lohan did attempt to bully Ms. Holland into not writng the report. She used her celebrity status, as she has done on previous occasions, to manipulate the criminal justice system. My opinion is that it is time for Lindsey to be held accountable for her habitual decisions to "not follow any rule." She has repeatedly demonstrated that she has "no respect" for the law. How many times will continue to display contempt for rules before the judges stop "slapping her on the hand?"

People going through detox sometimes become violent.If you can't deal with that you shouldn't work at a rehab!People like this are always looking for any opportunity to get something for nothing.I bet she was hired by Betty Ford through the welfare to work program.This should be very bad for the Betty Ford Clinic.

Why are people so obsessed with the life of Lindsay "Lolife" Lohan? The less the media and their followers talk and write about her antics, the sooner she might realise she has a problem and seeks the help she needs.

I think the woman is faking it to get money from the star . And for working rehab she should remember that people that have problems with drugs are not stable yet till they are sober. I think the woman don't belong working in a rehab if she don't know how to handle a situation which she is in capable of handling . There for she is tring to get money thatv realy don't belong to her in the first place

Gonna have to call a big bull**** on that one. This person is the posterchild for BBBWABA. Big Black Bitcha With An Attitude. Hey, heres a shocker. Nobody owes you ****!
