Cops say Lindsay Lohan was using while at Betty Ford




We all know by now that no one really cares what happens to Lindsay Lohan, and that the media saturation with stories about her is fueled solely by a gossip-obsessed management structure that somehow believes she's still relevant at best, and decent filler at worst. With that, hey, did you hear that the Palm Desert PD thinks she was using while in rehab at Betty Ford? WHOA!

TMZ follows up reports that her alleged battery of ex-staffer Dawn Holland may land her in jail for violating her probation with word that her drinking and drugging knew no bounds while drying out (that's a probation violation, too). Her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, disputes that, of course, because that's what she's paid for.

"I had numerous conversations with Betty Ford counselors and doctors and it was never suggested by anyone that she ever drank or used drugs," Holley told TMZ. "Her discharge letter is totally consistent with that." Sure, and why not? It's not like the Betty Ford Clinic would have anything to lose by acknowledging publicly that they had failed at cleaning up the most infamous head case of our age.
