Lindsay Lohan being investigated for battery
LOS ANGELES - Even in rehab, trouble seems to find Lindsay Lohan. The actress whose career has stumbled in recent years from drug and alcohol abuse is now under investigation for the misdemeanor crime of battery, an official in Riverside County, California, said on Tuesday. The alleged battery took place at the Betty Ford Center, the rehabilitation facility where Lohan is currently residing in Rancho Mirage, Calif., about 120 miles east of Los Angeles.
Riverside County Deputy Sheriff Herlinda Valenzuela said police were called to the facility in the early morning hours of Dec. 12 and conducted a battery investigation involving Lohan.
“The victim desires prosecution,” Valenzuela said, but she added that detectives have not yet completed their investigation.
