TMZ has obtained and released the audio from the 911 phone call Lindsay Lohan made this winter while in rehab at the Betty Ford Center and surprisingly, it’s convinced me that she’s less guilty here than I originally suspected.
When you listen to the audio (click through, it’s not embeddable) you’ll hear that a distraught sounding Lindsay got in touch with the sheriff’s office, and said that there was a woman in her home that was making her uncomfortable. The woman in question, Betty Ford’s Dawn Holland, then takes the phone from Lindsay’s hand and tells the officer on the line that she’d be happy to speak to him if Lindsay would calm down. Then there’s a scuffle, which is supposedly the sound of Lindsay ripping the phone from Dawn’s hand, followed by Dawn telling Lindsay to “pack [her] shit” and that she’s going to sue her. A disgusted Lindsay replies, “You want money?” before Dawn takes over the call again and explains her account of Lindsay and her roommates breaking in and out of the center.
It sounds to me like Lindsay finally met her match, someone who’s just as dramatic and volatile as she is. While Lindsay’s behavior may have been inappropriate, it sounds like Dawn was waiting for an incident like this to go down and couldn’t have been more thrilled that it was finally happening. It’s hard to think of any other reason that she’d be so quick to say she’s going to sue her.
