Rehab Staff Fired for Blabbing

Rehab Staff Fired for Blabbing - The Betty Ford staffer who accused Lindsay Lohan of criminal battery was fired by the rehab center Thursday, after she granted TMZ a videotaped interview in which she asserted that Lohan was "out of control" after drinking the night of the alleged attack.

Dawn Holland, a chemical technician at the Betty Ford Center, told TMZ that on Dec. 12, Lohan and her roommates tried to sneak back into their sober living residence after curfew but were caught by security. She said in the interview she smelled alcohol on Lohan's breath and that the actress refused to take a breathalyzer test.

"She was very angry and out of control," Holland says in the video.

Holland claimed Lohan assaulted her when she tried to call police. "She just grabbed my wrist and snatched it down, and twisted my arm and my hand," Holland said. After a trip to the emergency room, she "found out I have a severe sprain to my arm and my hand."

Holland refutes Lohan's claim that she initiated the altercation, saying, "I did not touch the woman. I am not willing to risk my job over any patient."

Whoops! Betty Ford officials confirmed Wednesday they fired Holland as soon they found out about the TMZ interview, for violating confidentiality guidelines. On the plus side, Holland reportedly snagged $10,000 from TMZ for the chat.

Lohan has denied Holland's story, saying she did not consume any alcohol Dec. 12, that she demanded to take a breathalyzer test but was rebuffed by Betty Ford staffers, and that Holland attacked her, rather than the other way around.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
