Linday Lohan, 26-year-old star of Liz & Dick and current tabloid diva, was allegedly assaulted in her NYC hotel room early this morning by a 25-year-old man she brought to her room after meeting him at a nightclub in the Chelsea area of NYC.
Lohan told police she got into an argument with the attacker, Christian LaBella, after Lindsay discovered he had taken pictures of her in the hotel room with his cell phone.
According to NBC News in New York, the actress told police detectives that after she confronted LaBella in her hotel room around 4:30 a.m. this morning about the pictures, he threw her on the bed which caused scratches to her hands.
Lohan ran out of the room and down the stairs of the hotel, but at some point decided to head back upstairs to her room.
When LaBella saw her again, Lohan told police he attacked her, choking her, throwing her to the ground, and climbing on top of her.
A friend of Lindsay helped get Labella off the actress, at which time Lohan pulled the hotel’s fire alarm in an effort to seek assistance.
Police arrived on the scene in time to take Christian LaBella into custody.
NYC police originally charged LaBella with assault and harassment, but have since dropped the assault charge.
LaBella was freed a few hours after his initial arrest. Because police could not substantiate Lohan’s assault claims, the man’s arrest was voided.
LaBella has now filed a harassment complaint against Lohan; and Lohan filed a harassment complaint against LaBella.
Lindsay has been keeping very busy now that she’s back on the east coast, and in not the most productive ways.
Just recently the starlet was arrested and charged in NYC with leaving the scene of an accident after allegedly clipping a pedestrian, also in Chelsea.
