BREAKING: Lindsay Lohan facing criminal battery charges!

The Palm Desert Police Department is now investigating an altercation that occurred on December 12th after Lindsay Lohan and her roommates reportedly went to a bar and came back home. Lindsay claims when she walked into the BFC – a female staff member was “unfairly” scolding her about the situation … and demanded the actress take a drug/alcohol test. TMZ reports it was during the heated exchange that the woman “put her hands on Lindsay.”

Lindsay claims she told the woman, “Take your hands off of me” and then “pushed back.”

Local police received a call at 1:03 AM for “hand-to-hand battery” – and LiLo was named as a suspect. The staffer wants LiLo prosecuted for criminal battery.

Lindsay could be in some serious trouble here. She could end up spending 6 months behind bars if she’s convicted. It all goes back to Lindsay’s Beverly Hills DUI arrest in 2007 – a crime for which she’s still on probation – and the probation doesn’t terminate until August 2011.

One of the terms of the probation is “obey all laws” — and if Judge Elden Fox decides LiLo committed a battery at the BFC, he could send her back to the slammer for 180 days.

Stay tuned…

T.I.’s going back to jail for 11 months!

On Friday, two days after he talked a suicidal man down from an Atlanta skyscraper, the rapper, 30, was sent back to jail for more 11 months for violating the terms of his probation, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. The rapper left prison this past March after a yearlong stay on federal weapons charges.

Last month, T.I. (real name: Clifford Harris) and his wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle were arrested in L.A. after cops discovered marijuana in their car. At the time, the hip-hop star was on probation related to his earlier prison stay.

Police in the September bust charged the star for possessing ecstasy, testing positive for opiates and associating with a convicted felon.

On Thursday, T.I. told that he was humbled by his help in saving a despondent man from suicide. “I can’t say it’s the most heroic thing that I did,” he told Us. “It may have been one of the most spiritual moments that I’ve had.”

“Life can send you down very, very, very dark roads,” the star added. “It’s not always pleasant and it seems unlivable even at times.”

PICS: Paris Hilton’s walk of shame!

Here are the pictures of Paris Hilton leaving court this morning after pleading guilty to possession of cocaine.

Paris appeared before a judge this morning, where she plead guilty to two misdemeanor charges; one for cocaine possession, the other lying to a police officer.

E! reports that on both counts, Hilton was required to state exactly what she did wrong. For the first:

“Guilty, your honor,” she said. “I was in possession as well as tell an officer that the bag wasn’t my purse.”

When pressed to state for the record what, exactly she was in possession of, Hilton responded: “Cocaine, your honor.”

As for the second:

“Guilty, your honor,” she pleaded. “I said that the purse wasn’t mine to the officer, your honor.”

In exchange for her guilty plea, Paris must stay clear of trouble for a year, pay a $2,000 fine and perform 200 hours of community service. Paris must also attend a substance abuse program.

Clark County Detention Center Justice of the Peace Joe Bonaventure, told Hilton, “The purpose here is to change your conduct. [The Clark County Detention Center] is not the Waldorf=Astoria.”

“Defendant shall stay out of trouble. Defendant agrees that an arrest for any charge, excluding minor traffic violations for which a citation is issued, shall result in the immediate termination of her probation and the execution of the suspended sentences,” reads the deal.

As to why she misled authorities, a source close to Hilton tells PEOPLE, “At the moment it all came down, she was scared. But since then, she’s had time to think about her actions, and she’s taking this really seriously.”
