The fired Betty Ford worker who accused Lindsay Lohan of criminal battery last month has suddenly and mysteriously fired her attorney and decided not to pursue criminal charges. I’m sure the $25,000 check Lindsay’s people cut her is just a happy coincidence. Radar Online says:
“[Betty Ford staffer Dawn Holland] agreed to a $25,000 payment from someone directly associated with Lohan’s camp,” [said] a source with knowledge of the situation, “and [she will not] be assisting any further in the investigation or prosecution.”
The source stopped short of saying that the payment to Holland was struck to buy her silence and cooperation, a situation that would likely have legal repercussions.
The DA still has not made a decision on possible charges against Lohan from the Betty Ford incident and a Beverly Hills judge could still find that the troubled star violated probation.
So, just to get this straight, she bought off her assault victim for twenty-five grand in order to keep her from testifying against her in court. I guess they only call it “witness tampering” when Italians do it.
