Just In Case Felony Grand Theft Isn't Enough…Riverside D.A. Still Investigating Lindsay's Rehab Criminal Battery Case!

riverside-da-still-investigating-lindsay-lohan-rehab-attack

The day she has no legal issues to worry about is the day that hell freezes over.

Lindsay Lohan has been up to her elbows in her latest court case for felony grand theft, but don't think that the Riverside County District Attorney's Office is through with her yet, because sources close to their investigation - regarding her attack against Betty Ford Staffer Dawn Holland during her time in rehab - have revealed that they've been meeting with various witnesses the past two days!

Authorities are still unsure if they want to pursue criminal assault charges against the formerly hard-pAArtying actress, and have reached out to witnesses to find out once for all whether or not it was Lindsay or Dawn who was the "aggressor" the night in question, and if they would be willing to cooperate with a trial, if it were to happen!

Uh-oh! Here's hoping this comes back in gurlfriend's favor - we think she's got quite enough to worry about as it is - especially now that she won't take the plea deal!

Ugh. It never ends!

Will Chris Brown Face Charges For His Good Morning America Meltdown?

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsChris Brown

chris-brown-probation-violation-charges-good-morning-america-meltdown

They should charge him! He clearly hasn't learned a thing!

In light of Chris Brown's post-Good Morning America appearance meltdown - in which he trashed his dressing room and smashed a window after Robin Roberts asked him about his assault on Rihanna - many are wondering if the singer will be facing probation violation charges, and although sources close to production of the show revealed that there may have been talk of involving the authorities, so far, nothing has been filed!

Once Brown had fled to the streets of Manhattan without his shirt, a GMA staffer was reportedly overheard telling a glass repairman:

"I have a police officer coming just to take a look at it before we do any work."

However, an insider at the NYPD reveals that no officers were dispatched to the scene, and another source close to Brown reveals:

"The police weren't called, and unless ABC decides to call the NYPD, no action will be taken against Brown, who is still on probation. No one saw Chris break the window. It would be a different scenario if the cops were called, which would prompt Brown's probation officer to become involved. If that did occur, Brown's probation officer would then notify the court, and the DA. Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray would then decide what action, if any, would need to be taken. It's certainly concerning that this happened, but unless the NYPD becomes involved, and ABC wants to press charges against Brown, he most likely won't be facing any probation violation."

You hear that, ABC?! Time to call the fuzz!

We count at least TWO crimes on his part - vandalism and assault on the pedestrians below the window! He could have SERIOUSLY hurt someone with those broken glass shards!

And most importantly - we think that this behavior perfectly captures WHY he needs to face more serious repercussions!

Only an ABUSIVE person with serious anger issues would react like THAT when forced to discuss his history as an abuser! Clearly, the system has failed him, and he needs to learn that actions have consequences.

The D.A. Wants To Talk To Former Rehab Worker About Lindsay!

riverside-da-wants-to-talk-to-dawn-holland-about-run-in-with-lindsay-lohan

Will the truth finally be coming out??

The Riverside County D.A. is apparently VERY interested in the revelations made today by former Betty Ford Center staffer Dawn Holland regarding the alleged deal she made with Lindsay Lohan's people - to keep her from pressing assault charges against the actress - and have once again invited her to speak with them about their altercation at the rehab facility.

Sounds like Dawn is strapped for cash enough to do whatever she thinks will get her paid the most in the least amount of time, so we imagine that we're going to have a LOT more insight into what actually happened that night relatively soon!

We hope for Lindsay's sake that she was in the right this time!

Judge Fox NOT Taking Action In LiLo Betty Ford Assault Case!

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal Matters

judge-elden-fox-rules-to-not-take-action-against-lindsay-lohan-in-assault-case

Finally!

Things might actually - dare we say it? - be turning around for Lindsay Lohan!

In light of the actress' much debated alleged assault against a staffer at the Betty Ford Center a month before her release, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden Fox reviewed her criminal file regarding the incident, and has determined to take no immediate action against her!

However, if the Riverside District Attorney DOES decide to press charges, Fox may be forced to give the file a second look!

A source explains:

"Judge Fox read the report, and put it back in Lohan's file. Right now, based on what he has read, he won't be taking any action against Lindsay. Judge Fox is waiting to see what, if any, charges Lindsay will face in connection with the incident at Betty Ford. If she is charged, he will take immediate action. Lindsay is scheduled to appear in front of Judge Fox on February 25th for a progress report hearing. At the last hearing, Judge Fox told her if she cleaned up her act and completed rehab, she would be taken off supervised probation, which would mean no more random drug tests, among other things. Lindsay is almost there, the only thing that could change that is if Lindsay is charged by the DA in Riverside, or if she violates other terms of her probation before February 25th. Lindsay received a glowing discharge letter from Betty Ford, which Judge Fox also has in the file by now. Lindsay's counselors conveyed how impressed they were with the progress she made at Betty Ford, and her commitment to her sobriety."

Let's hope for her sake, and everyone else's, that nothing more comes from this silly incident!

Everyone connected to her has commented on how well she's doing, she LOOKS much healthier, and even the staffer doesn't want to press charges!

Let this silly case go! We're tired of hearing about LiLo drama!

LOLz!

Thoughts?? Is Lindsay really on the mend??

Betty Ford Staffer Claims Lindsay Lohan Did NOT Break Her Probation!

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal Matters

dawn-holland-denies-lindsay-lohan-broke-her-probation

Wow. Talk about a turnaround!

In light of reports that the Palm Desert police department is looking to charge Lindsay Lohan with multiple charges for violating her probation, the alleged victim of the actress' wrath, former Betty Ford Center staffer Dawn Holland, has come forward and DENIED that there was any law-breaking the night of the incident, and that no further legal action should be taken!

Holland's lawyer, Keith Davidson, says in a statement:

“It is important to note that it was Ms. Lohan, and not Ms. Holland who called 911 on December 12th. Had Ms. Lohan not called 911 – this incident never would’ve been public knowledge, let alone criminally investigated. Ms Holland has long held that recovery is not always a pretty process and the workings of a recovery center have never been for the faint of heart. As a recovering addict herself, Ms. Holland is proud of Lindsay for making the always difficult voyage toward recovery. Had the interaction between these two ladies occurred in front of a police officer anywhere in this Country, no probation would’ve been violated, no arrests would’ve been made and certainly no criminal charges would have been filed. The recent reports of criminality and probation violations are much ado about nothing.”

Holy shiz!

Certainly a nice gesture, but this just raises more questions for us!

We want to know what REALLY went down that night, and why Miz Holland has changed her tune so drastically!

What do U think?? Guilty conscious?? Or maybe a big settlement??

Thoughts??

Palm Desert Police Say LiLo Violated MULTIPLE Probation Terms, Referring Her Case To Prosecutors!

palm-desert-pd-claim-lindsay-lohan-violated-multiple-probation-terms-referring-case-to-prosecutors

Just when you think that she's FINALLY off the hook.

Lindsay Lohan's altercation with a Betty Ford staffer in early December is still coming back to haunt her, and despite Dawn Holland's refusal to cooperate with a police investigation, the Palm Desert authorities are now claiming that the actress may have committed MULTIPLE violations of her probation, and are referring the case to prosecutors!

A representative explains:

"The investigation and facts in evidence has revealed other possible violations by Ms. Lohan relating to certain conditions of her probation terms."

Although it's not 100% clear on what other terms she violated that night, a source close to law enforcement officials claims that she did, in fact, refuse a breathalyzer.

Inneresting!

But we're still not so sure about all of this…if Lindsay's probation officer refused to arrest her the night of the incident, then we wonder why the Palm Desert police are so adamant about asserting that she did actually violate her probation!

Maybe her lawyer is right about them gunning for her, after all!

What do U think?? Is Lindsay in trouble, or for once in her life, is she actually not to blame??

Dr. Drew Weighs In On Lindsay's Betty Ford Scandal!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLindsay LohanDr. Drew

dr-drew-gives-thoughts-on-lindsay-lohan-betty-ford-controversy

Although the jury is still out on what exactly went down between Lindsay Lohan and the Betty Ford Center staffer, addiction specialist Dr. Drew is weighing in on the matter, and thinks that the hard-pAArtying starlet's alleged outburst is somewhat normal for people going through similar experiences to her!

He explains:

"It's obviously not a good sign for Lindsay that she is having these sorts of outbursts, but it is not unusual. The fact is she is still in treatment, she wasn't discharged from treatment, so it's not as though she was non-compliant with the treatment process. It's more that there was some sort of conflict evolved that was inappropriate. We don't know to what extent the staff was responsible for this. The reality is that staff should never touch patients, ever. Absolutely never. So even if the staff is being touched, they are trained how to manage that, and how to have a show of force with other staff members. It sounds like something broke down in their system as much as anything else. If you watch our Sex Rehab program, we had an excellent staff member that, for whatever reason, touched Carrie Ann, and she was immediately escorted off the grounds, the employee was. It just doesn't sound like Lindsay should be prosecuted. What Lindsay does need is at least one year of treatment, that could include outpatient treatment. I would encourage her to get at least one year."

Makes sense to us!

Obviously, we don't know at this point how much at fault LiLo is, but we agree that Dawn Holland should have known better than to go about the situation the way that she did!

Something about her just seems so shady to us!

Thoughts??
