FOR BREAKING CELEBRITY NEWS EVERY DAY
TROUBLE IN REHAB
Just weeks away from Lindsay Lohan
's completing three months of court-ordered rehab, drama erupted for the actress on Dec. 12, after Betty Ford employee Dawn Holland accused her of battery. Allegedly caught breaking curfew, Lohan reportedly smelled of alcohol and refused a Breathalyzer test. In a tussle that ensued, Holland claimed Lohan threw one phone at her and tried to rip another out of her hand, causing a sprain. Lohan, 24, denied she struck first. Holland was fired for violating Betty Ford privacy rules by speaking to the media and, in a surprising twist, her attorney conceded that "a crime has quite simply not been committed by Ms. Lohan." The actress, however, could still face jail if her judge determines she broke any of the treatment center's rules.
