Rehab had been going quite smoothly for Lindsay Lohan … until recently.

The troubled starlet is now at the center of a criminal battery investigation following a Dec. 12 incident at the Betty Ford Clinic, in which a staffer is accusing Lohan of “hand-to-hand battery,” TMZ is reporting. According to the report, Lohan and her friends were confronted by the staffer after returning from a bar, and then the alleged incident occurred.

A source tells TMZ that the female staffer “put her hands on Lindsay,” prompting the actress to push her.

The Palm Desert Police are currently investigating the incident, and may move forward with any charges they deem fit.

Lindsay is currently in the Betty Ford Clinic until at least early January after being found guilty of violating her probation this summer.
