Lindsay Lohan is a legal genius!

As some of you might remember, Lindsay Lohan got into some trouble a few years ago after she reportedly got into a physical altercation with Dawn Holland, a Betty Ford clinic worker, after she allegedly came back to rehab all drunk after a night of partying. Because I’m sure all that will totally change the public’s perception of her. Anyway, Holland finally filed a lawsuit against Lindsay, and Lindsay is fighting back claiming self-defense, because there’s no telling how much physical damage that breathalyzer test could have done to her. TMZ reports:

Lindsay allegedly got into it with Dawn Holland (now going by Dawn Bradley) back in December 2010, while Lindsay was in rehab. Bradley filed a lawsuit last July against Lohan for the alleged incident, claiming assault and battery. Attorneys for Lindsay filed their response in Riverside County Superior Court on January 10, claiming the entire incident was provoked by Bradley … so Lindsay shouldn’t have to pay her a cent. Lohan claims anything she may have done was done in self-defense. Lohan also wants the court to force Bradley to pay for her court costs, plus any other relief the court sees fit.

All right, I’m going to be fair here: did Holland milk her little Lindsay run-in way too much? Of course she did. But was she out of bounds for trying to make Lindsay take a breathalyzer test after she left rehab without permission, then came back later allegedly drunk? No, because that’s not what rehab is about. And I’m pretty sure claiming self-defense for attacking a rehab worker for trying to give you a breathalyzer test is pretty much one of the first pages in the crackie handbook. You know, after buying crack.
