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.
