LOS ANGELES (AP) ― Sheriff’s investigators want Lindsay Lohan charged with battery for last month’s skirmish with a Betty Ford Center rehabilitation technician.

A two-week investigation shows the 24-year-old actress violated her probation during the altercation and details will be sent to the Los Angeles County Probation Department this week, Riverside sheriff’s Sgt. Joe Borja said.

A Beverly Hills judge has said Lohan will be jailed if she violates probation.

Investigators expect to take their case to the Riverside County district attorney’s office this week for possible prosecution, Borja said.

Lohan returned to the Rancho Mirage drug dependency center on Dec. 12 after curfew and refused rehab worker Dawn Holland’s request to take a Breathalyzer test, according to investigators. Lohan is accused of pushing Holland, who then called police, and Lohan ripped the phone away and injured Holland’s wrist.
