RIVERSIDE, Calif. ā€“ Sheriff’s investigators in California want Lindsay Lohan charged with battery for last month’s skirmish with a Betty Ford Center rehabilitation technician.

A riverside sheriff’s sergeant says a two-week investigation shows Lohan violated her probation during the Dec. 12 altercation. Results will be sent to the probation department and prosecutors.

Lohan returned to the center after curfew and refused rehab worker Dawn Holland’s request to take a Breathalyzer test. Lohan is accused of pushing Holland, who then dialed 911, and Lohan ripped the phone away and injured Holland’s wrist.

A Beverly Hills judge has said Lohan will be jailed if she violates probation.

Lohan was scheduled to get out of rehab yesterday but it’s not clear she’s still there.
