Lindsay Lohan 'moved to secret location after clash with rehab worker'



Troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan has moved to a secret location after a clash with a staff member at her rehab clinic over the weekend.

The Mean Girls actress is being investigated by police over allegations that she attacked a female rehab worker, according to reports.

But the scandal-hit star insists that she was hit first by the employee at California's Betty Ford Treatment Centre, and that she merely defended herself by pushing the woman away.

She is now said to be filing a formal complaint against the staff member at the high-profile facility.

Lohan, 24, says she was forced to shove the woman during a physical altercation in the early hours of December 12.

Celebrity gossip website claims the drama unfolded after Lohan arrived back 10 minutes after her curfew following a trip to a bar with her roommates.

Sources say the staff member was 'unfairly' scolding Lohan about the situation and demanded the actress take a drug and alcohol test.

Broken curfew: The actress was made to take a drugs and alcohol test, which she passed, after returning ten minutes late to the sober house

It was during this heated exchange that pals claim the woman 'put her hands on Lindsay'.

The Mean Girls star then claims she told the woman: 'Take your hands off of me' and then 'pushed back'.

Officers from Palm Desert Police Department arrived and interviewed both parties after receiving a battery report at 1.03am.

TMZ says the worker 'desired prosecution' for criminal battery.

When the investigation is concluded, it will be forwarded to prosecutors for review.

Lohan reportedly claims the worker has been gunning for her for weeks and was looking for a final confrontation before she reached the end of her treatment.

If Lohan is convicted of criminal battery, she could spend six months in jail because she is still on probation for her 2007 DUI arrest until next year.

One of the terms of the probation is 'obey all laws'.

Lindsay reportedly passed the drugs and alcohol test but was said to be upset by the way she was treated.

The actress was admitted to the Betty Ford Centre in Palm Springs in October after being ordered into rehab by Judge Elden Fox, narrowly escaping a return to jail.

The order was the result of a probation violation after she failed a court mandated drug test, which could have landed her back in jail for 30 days.

She will remain in rehab until early in the new year.
