The story isn’t as sensational as the title makes it sound, but it’s still damn funny. Apparently Lindsay and a co-conspirator tried to climb a fence at the Betty Ford Center in order to get access to a soda machine at a medical facility next door. Lindsay’s friend got her clothing stuck on the fence and couldn’t get down, so they had to ask a staff member on the grounds for help and were of course turned in. I guess the takeaway from this story is that Lindsay is up to her old tricks and that it’s such a strict facility she can’t even get a coffee or a diet coke. (She can smoke outside, though, according to a former Betty Ford attendee interviewed by Hollyscoop.) Radar reports that she can’t watch TV, either, and we’ve already heard that her internet and cell phone privileges were taken away. It’s not prison though – yet!
Lindsay Lohan was caught trying to escape the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California, earlier this week, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
But all Lohan, 24, desperately wanted to score was a coke fix — of the cola variety!
In a tale so bizarre it is almost unbelievable, RadarOnline.com has confirmed the Hollywood wild child attempted to flee the Betty Ford grounds to sneak into the nearby Eisenhower Medical Center, in a bid to buy a soda from a vending machine.
Lohan’s rouse was almost pulled off it wasn’t for her accomplice, another patient, whose clothing got caught on the fence.
“Lindsay and her co-conspirator were forced to give it up and flag down a volunteer, who was crossing the center’s grounds on a golf cart,” a source, with knowlegde of the situation, told RadarOnline.com.
“The pair was safely returned, decaffeinated, to their hall, were they were the center of a process meeting over what they had done.”
There is no soda dispenser at the clinic where luxuries such as caffeine, along with phone calls and television, are strictly prohibited.

I would go nuts without my morning coffee, so I guess I understand why Lohan is sneaking out to get some soda. I find it really hard to believe that they don’t serve coffee there at least. INF Daily backs up Radar’s report that caffeine is banned, so it probably is. I would get headaches for a few days if I went cold turkey off coffee and it would suck. I’m sure it’s harder to withdraw from all the other stuff Lindsay is on, though.
Lindsay is reportedly hoping to avoid jail with an extended rehab stay. Her team is also working to decrease her time on probation in order to make it less likely that she’ll screw up. (Ha!) Is the judge going to get wind of this and give Lindsay a harsher sentence for it? We can only hope, although Lindsay will surely try and blame the friend for it. She can probably get some damn coffee in jail at least but it’s not like they’re going to let her smoke or roam around outside.
