The 'Mean Girls" star hit the headlines this week when it was revealed police were called to investigate a 'hand-to-hand battery' on 12 December (10) after Lohan reportedly clashed with a member of staff at California's Betty Ford clinic, where she had been receiving treatment for drug issues.
Sources close to the actress insist she simply brushed the staffmember off when she was 'unfairly' lectured about arriving at the clinic after her curfew and ordered to take a drug or alcohol test. The woman behind the allegations, Dawn Holland, revealed to TMZ.com that Lohan was aggressive and in a 'very angry' state when she was caught sneaking back in to the clinic, and she claimed the star had been drinking.
Holland was subsequently fired for breaching patient confidentiality and her lawyer, Keith Davidson, admits his client is not happy with the hysteria surrounding her claims. "She (Holland) was caught off guard by the attention this incident garnered and she regrets a large part of what happened in general," the Daily Express quoted Davidson as saying on US TV's Today show.
