The woman who accused Lindsay Lohan of attacking her at the Betty Ford Center has been fired, according to a report.

Authorities said Lohan was named as a suspect in a criminal battery investigation for an incident that occurred on December 12 around 1 a.m.

Dawn Holland, a technician at the treatment center, was fired after telling TMZ on camera about a confrontation with the actress, People Magazine reported.

"Regrettably, one of our employees violated strict confidentiality guidelines and laws by publically identifying patients in a media interview and by disclosing a privileged document," the Betty Ford Center said in a statement.

Holland said that Lohan got back late with two other patients and refused to take a breathalyzer test. She said the actress was "angry and out of control."

The worker said her arm was hurt when the actress tried to grab a phone from her.

"So I'm talking to the police officer," said Holland. "She kept screaming and cursing in the background. Then she tried to snatch the phone from my arm. She just grabbed my wrist and snatched it down and twisted my arm."

Holland said she suffered a severe sprain in her arm from the incident.

The actress' attorney said in a statement that it was Lohan who called 911 to report the incident.

No arrests have been made, but Lohan has completed several stints in jail for her previous conviction.

"The investigation is currently ongoing," a police spokesperson told OnTheRedCarpet.com. "Upon completion of the investigation, reports will be forwarded to the district attorney's office to determine if charges will be filed in the case."

Lohan was sentenced to rehab earlier this year at a hearing on her probation for a 2007 arrest. The actress had pleaded guilty to being under the influence of cocaine and no contest to driving with a blood-alcohol level above 0.08 percent and reckless driving.

Lindsay Lohan, who has undergone several stints in treatment centers before, has been ordered to stay at the Betty Ford center until at least Jan. 3, 2011.

The 24-year-old is scheduled to be back in court on February 25.

Lohan is known for her roles in "Freaky Friday" and "Mean Girls." She was recently dropped from a movie role as a result of her extended stay in rehab. She was set to play Linda Lovelace, who shot to fame with the 1972 film "Deep Throat," in a new movie about her life, called "Inferno." Director Matthew Wilder says the film is moving on without Lohan .
