Lindsay Lohan and Shawn Chapman Holley Lindsay Lohan attorney Shawn Chapman Holley says her client was the first to call 911 for assistance at her Betty Ford Center sober house in the wee hours Dec. 12.

While not commenting further on Lohan's involvement in a battery case that is being investigated, CNN reports, Holley stated Wednesday that "it should be noted" the actress called police first after her post-curfew return.

Holley's statement followed news that the center on Tuesday fired an employee it said violated a patient's confidentiality. 

Rehab tech Dawn Holland gave an interview to TMZ on Tuesday and provided the site with her e-mail account of events. Holland was fired late Tuesday.

Meanwhile, sources told TMZ on Wednesday that Lohan was drinking non-alcoholic mixed drinks and eating fries at the Viceroy Hotel, where she'd gone to get her hair done Dec. 11.

Lohan was sober, the sources said, when she returned to her Betty Ford Center digs around 1 a.m. the next day.
