Lindsay Lohan attorney: Actress never drank, took drugs while at Betty Ford

January 5, 2011 | 12:25 pm

Lindsay Lohan's attorney said Wednesday that her client never consumed alcohol or drugs while at the Betty Ford rehab center.

Shawn Chapman Holley made the statement after sources told The Times that Riverside County detectives believe that Lohan may have violated her probation during an altercation with a staffer at the clinic by refusing to take an alcohol sobriety test.

Such a violation could send Lohan back to jail for months if a judge agreed it occurred.

"I had numerous conversations with Betty Ford counselors and doctors over the course of Lindsay's treatment there and it was never suggested by anyone that she ever drank or used drugs," Chapman Holley said. "Her discharge letter from the facility is totally consistent with that."
