Riverside sheriff's Sgt. Joe Borja says a two-week investigation shows Lohan violated her probation during the Dec. 12 altercation and details will be sent to the Los Angeles County Probation Department this week. A Beverly Hills judge has said Lohan will be jailed if she violates probation.

Borja said in a news release Monday that investigators expect to take their case to the Riverside County district attorney's office this week for possible prosecution.

Lohan returned to the Palm Desert drug dependency center after curfew and refused Dawn Holland's request to take a Breathalyzer test. Lohan allegedly pushed Holland, who then dialed 911, and Lohan ripped the phone away and injured Holland's wrist.
