Lindsay Lohan, rehab worker heard in 911 call (Audio)
Dawn Holland, a former rehab center employee, is heard yelling at Lindsay Lohan and accusing the actress of hitting her, in a recording of a 911 call that was recently obtained by OnTheRedCarpet.com (click the picture to listen).
Earlier this week, prosecutors said the 24-year-old actress will not face charges over the reported December incident at the Betty Ford Center in southern California, citing insufficient evidence following a battery investigation. Authorities released the 911 call on Friday, April 1.
Lohan has not commented on the release of the recording. She underwent treatment for substance abuse at the facility as part of a court order and left the facility in January. She has served several stints behind bars stemming from a 2007 drunk driving and cocaine possession case conviction and is currently on probation.
During the nearly 6-minute recording, Lohan is heard telling a dispatcher she had never seen Holland before, saying: "She's freaking me out."
Holland is then heard saying: "Lindsay, you need to pack your (expletive). Now I'm getting ready to file charges on you."
Lohan asks Holland if she wants money and the woman says no, she wants to be treated with respect. The two then continue yelling at one another.
Holland tells the dispatcher that three women, including Lohan, had snuck out of the center and were caught trying to jump back over a wall and return to the property. Two of them, she said, smelled like alcohol.
"The third party, which is Lindsay Lohan, is being rude," Holland says. "She's gotten on the phone with her mom and she's telling her mom I'm being rude to her, which I'm not - I'm just asking her to come into the living room to breathalyze like the other two ladies are doing."
"She got busted trying to hop back over the fence," Holland added. "When I was inside of the back yard, there was a chair there for them to jump onto. I have a problem because Lindsay Lohan pushed me and hit me with the phone while I was trying to talk to you."
The dispatcher asks her if she wants to file charges against the actress, after which Hollad says: "Yes, I think I do."
Holland was fired from her job as a Chemical Dependency technician from the Betty Ford Center after she spoke to the media about the confrontation between the two, which occured on December 12 around 1 a.m. She had said then that her arm was sprained after the actress tried to grab a phone from her.
Lohan's attorney had said in a statement that it was Lohan who called 911 to report the incident.
Lohan is also awaiting a April 22 hearing on another case - the alleged theft of a $2,500 necklace from a jewelry store. Lohan recently rejected plea offers and maintains she is innocent. During the hearing, prosecutors are expected to present evidence against her and determine if there is enough to warrant a trial. Also, a judge is set to determine if she violated her probation. If it is decided she had, she could return to jail.
Lohan is accused of stealing the necklace from Kamofie and Co., a store located in the Venice area of Los Angeles on Jan. 22, three weeks after she was released from court-ordered rehab. She had in the past pleaded not guilty to a charge of felony grand theft.
Lohan's three stints behind bars have each lasted 84 minutes, 14 days and 15 hours - the last of which occurred in September after she failed a drug test and wrote about it on her Twitter page.
Lohan was recently seen in celebrity photos as falling while leaving a New York bar. She shot down reports that said she was drunk, saying on Twitter that she was simply joking around with her friends.
