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

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??

LiLo To File Complaint Against Betty Ford Staffer, Wants To Keep Incident Out Of Court!

lindsay lohan filing complaint against betty ford staffer

Looks like Lindsay has decided not to press charges, but she will be filing a formal complaint against the Betty Ford staffer who's incited so much drama in her life.

According to sources, Lindz is insisting that the staffer berated and grabbed her before she pushed her in defense.

The staffer is looking to get LiLo prosecuted for battery, while Lindsay would like to see the staffer fired, immediately.

Meanwhile, both parties are both in agreement on one thing - they want to keep the entire incident on the DL!

A source close the situation explains:

“Both sides are trying to work out something. But right now the talks do not include the worker involved in the incident. But people at the center who are above the worker are interested in working this out without it landing in court. Lindsay is now apologetic for being late for curfew that night. Lindsay now realizes she needs to be responsible."

A little late, bb! A few months of good behavior doesn't mean you automatically get a free ride!

It'd be nice if they could keep this one out of the courtroom, but unfortunately we're not overly optimistic.

We're sure we'll be hearing more VERY soon.

Thoughts??
