Lindsay Lohan can't seem to catch a break.

One day after she left the Betty Ford Center (and moved into a four-bedroom beach house next to ex Samantha Ronson), the 24-year-old actress faces the possibility of being sent to jail for 180 days.

According to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department, Lohan may have violated her probation when she allegedly assaulted former Betty Ford Clinic staff member Dawn Holland on December 12.

Though Holland, who was later fired by the rehab facility, dropped her case against Lohan on December 23, authorities plan to send the results of their investigation to the district attorney's office to decide if the actress should face battery charges.

"It is expected that this investigation will be sent to the district attorney's office later this week," the sheriff's office told CNN, adding that Holland has chosen not to cooperate with the case.

According to L.A. Superior Court Judge Elden Fox, if the Mean Girls star violates the rules of her rehab program or fails a drug test before her February 25 court date, she will be sent to jail. As of now, Lohan's probation is scheduled to end in August 2011.
