The troubled actress was alleged to have lashed out at Dawn Holland, a member of staff at the Betty Ford Center – where she was being treated for drug abuse as part of a court-ordered rehabilitation program – last December but the Riverside County, California, district attorney has now decided not to pursue the claims.
Prosecutor's spokesman John Hall told CNN: "Our office has completed review of the case, and we will not file charges due to insufficient evidence."
Ms Holland later decided not to press charges and Lindsay’s father Michael urged his daughter to file her own counter claim, alleging she was biased against Lindsay “since day one”.
He said: "The woman who claims she was attacked in the house had it out for Lindsay since day one. She didn't want her to drive and didn't want to give her any passes to go out. This lady tried to do everything she could to not allow Lindsay to do the things she's entitled to.”
However, the ‘Mean Girls’ star’s legal troubles continue as she faces a charge of felony grand theft after being accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace from an upmarket Californian jewelers.
The 24-year-old actress rejected a plea deal in the case yesterday last Wednesday in exchange for a reduced sentence and now must face trial.
