Fresh out of rehab, actress Lindsay Lohan could once again find herself back in a courtroom sometime soon…
Palm Desert police have turned the just of their battery investigation over to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office, which will have the final say on whether or not Lohan should face charges for her alleged run-in with a staffer at the Betty Ford Center.
Though Lohan’s one-time accuser has since backed off, but cops are now expressing confidence in their case. So what will the D.A. do?
“We have received most of the reports from the [Riverside County] Sheriff’s Department on Lindsay Lohan’s case,” public information officer John Hall says.
“We’re still waiting for some supplemental reports to come back from law enforcement, but we’ve started reviewing what we have now. We’re treating it like any other case. As of now there’s no timeline as to how long it will take to review the reports until we have all of the evidence.”
Lohan’s attorney, meanwhile, is cleaning up the current mess, getting the word out that her client was not abusing drugs or alcohol while in treatment, despite reports that she may have been under the influence when she supposedly lashed out at chemical dependency technician Dawn Holland last month.
Holland was fired for breaching patient confidentiality rules by talking to TMZ about her scuffle with Lohan. She said at the time that Lohan refused to take a Breathalyzer and then jerked a phone out of her hand, causing an injury that required Holland to go on worker’s compensation.
Should the D.A. just let this one go? Or does Lindsay deserve to be behind bars if she did indeed commit the crime?
