The investigation concerns an alleged battery against a Betty Ford staffer, who reportedly wants Lohan prosecuted. The case is being investigated by the Palm Desert, Calif., Police Department.
Apparently an altercation took place early on Dec. 12 at the rehab house after Lohan and some other residents returned from a visit to a bar.
