D.A. Won't Prosecute Lindsay in Betty Ford Case

The Riverside County District Attorney has decided not to file criminal charges against Lindsay Lohan in connection with the altercation last December between Lindsay and a Betty Ford staffer. The D.A. believes there is "insufficient evidence" to prosecute Lindsay.

Lohan was under investigation for battery after a scuffle with Dawn Holland, while there for treatment. The case involved an alleged altercation that happened after Lohan and her roommates left the clinic and came back from a bar at 1:03 A.M. on Dec. 12. The altercation is categorized as a "hand to hand battery."

The District Attorney claims the investigation was like any other and was not given special treatment. "It wasn't looked at any differently than other cases, and we didn't put any special priority on this," Hall said. "We also had to re-interview subsequent times several witnesses in the case."
