(Newser) – A rehab clinic worker who accused an apparently drunken Lindsay Lohan of assaulting her has been fired. "Regrettably, one of our employees violated strict confidentiality guidelines by publicly identifying patients in a media interview and by disclosing a privileged document," said a statement from the clinic. "The employee has been terminated by the Betty Ford Center." Police are investigating a battery complaint against Lohan, who missed curfew apparently because she was out drinking, according to worker Dawn Holland.

When Holland demanded a breathalyzer test, Lohan shoved her, she told TMZ. The "out of control" actress was "yelling and cursing and screaming," Holland told Us magazine. Lohan, 24, says she was grabbed by the worker and that she only shoved Holland away to protect herself. She's considering filing her own police complaint, reports the Daily Mail. Lohan has been moved by the clinic to a secret location. Lohan's dad said she was out getting her hair done, not drinking. For another view of Holland's violence issues, click here.
