Lindsay Lohan Investigated for Battery

Photo Courtesy - AL SEIB/AFP/Getty Images(RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif.) -- It sounds like Lindsay Lohan may be squeezing a few more drops of drama out what has already been a drama-filled 2010.

Authorities are investigating the Mean Girls star for alleged misdemeanor battery against a female employee at the Betty Ford Clinic, reports  Lohan has been staying at Betty Ford since September.

An official with the Riverside County Sheriff's Department in California says officers responded to a call on Dec. 12.  Lohan claims the staffer was "unfairly" chastising her when she arrived at the facility 10 minutes after her curfew.  When the staffer demanded Lohan take a drug test, the two got into a testy war of words, at which point the worker "put her hands on Lindsay."

Lohan says she ordered the woman to "take your hands off of me" before she shoved the employee.  The staffer now wants to press charges against Lohan for criminal battery.  Lohan claims the worker has had it in for her for some time.

Lohan is scheduled to remain in Betty Ford until January 3.
