Lindsay Lohan looks to CCTV saviour in hand to hand battery case

I wasn't drunk, I was getting my hair done

Lindsay Lohan's latest stint in rehab has hit an unseasonal bout of discomfort and joylessness after she was accused of attacking one of the workers at the Betty Ford Centre.

Lohan has vehemently denied the reports on gossip website TMZ, saying that the facility's inhouse surveillance cameras will prove her innocence.

The dry-out-centre dustup emerged yesterday, when entertainment gossip site TMZ reported that Lohan was being investigated by Palm Desert Police over an altercation with a staffer.

Lohan had allegedly been asked to submit to a breathalyser test on her return from a night out with other inmates. The troubled starlet allegedly objected forcefully, resulting in the cops being called to investigate alleged "hand to hand battery" which included Lohan tossing a phone at the staffer.

However, by early this morning, Lohan was fighting back, claiming the staffer had been abusive and made her cry. Rather than being out partying, Lohan says she was somewhere else getting her hair done, and had asked for the breath test.

Lohan said she had witnesses to prove her case. And just in case that isn't good enough, The Betty Ford Centre's CCTV system would prove her innocence, she claimed. Which would be nice, as it's a while since we've been able to enjoy the delights of Lindsay on screen.

For our part, we're assuming Lohan phoned in her story to TMZ, suggesting either her phone went nowhere near the staffer, or Lohan has comms smuggling abilities that would put Wormwood Scrubs' finest to shame. ®
