Lindsay Lohan not being charged with criminal battery

Posted on

Lindsay Lohan can cross one legal hurdle off her list: The Riverside District Attorney’s Office confirms to EW that they will not be pressing charges against Lohan in her alleged altercation with a Betty Ford Center staffer. According to the District Attorney’s Office, there was not enough sufficient evidence to charge the actress with criminal battery. (The Palm Desert Police Department told EW in December that Lohan was a suspect.) Following the incident, the California Department of Public Health decided to conduct an investigation of the Betty Ford Center; Lohan’s accuser was fired from the rehabilitation facility after speaking publicly with TMZ about the fight.

Lohan is currently facing felony grand theft charges after being accused of stealing a necklace from a Venice, Calif., jewelry store. Lohan has maintained her innocence. Her next court date is scheduled for April 22.
