Looks like somebody had a change of heart.

Dawn Holland – the former Betty Ford Center staffer Lindsay Lohan allegedly assaulted – is dropping her criminal complaint against the starlet, reports

Lohan, 24, was under police investigation for battery against the former rehab worker, who was fired by the clinic for violating confidentiality guidelines. But Holland’s lawyer, Keith Davidson, says no further action will be taken because “a crime has quite simply not been committed by Ms. Lohan.”

“Dawn will not continue to press charges against Lindsay, nor will she be assisting any further in the investigation or prosecution,” Davidson says.

Davidson says Holland – who alleged that Lohan was “out of control” earlier this week, causing a sprain in her right arm and hand – sympathizes with Lohan. The two share a similar struggle: They’re both recovering addicts.

Davidson adds that Holland does not want “in any way shape or form to do anything that would violate Lindsay’s probation or cause an arrest.”
