Lindsay Lohan Punched, Choked in New York City Hotel Room
The drama never ends with Lindsay Lohan.
The Liz & Dick actress, 26, was seen partying at 1Oak nightclub in New York City September 29. While there, she met a man, Christian LaBella, and invited him back to her room at the W Hotel.
Once there, the two got into an argument after Lohan learned LaBella took photos of her on his cell phone, according to NBC New York. When Lohan took possession of his cell phone, LaBella reportedly punched and choked the Parent Trap star. Police sources tell NBC New York Lohan pulled the hotel's fire alarm after running from her room.
On September 30, the New York City police department confirmed to Us Weekly that 25-year-old LaBella was charged with assault and harassment. "Police were called to the W Hotel, following a phone call for assault. We took the man into custody shortly after 6 a.m. and he was charged this afternoon." Upon further investigation, police dropped the assault charge. LaBella has filed a harassment complaint against Lohan.
"Lindsay was assaulted early this morning in a New York hotel. While she did sustain some injuries, she was not hospitalized," the actress' rep told Us. "Lindsay has spoken with police and is fully cooperating with the investigation."
Lohan, once a promising child star, is currently on probation for stealing a $2,500 necklace. In March, the Mean Girls star's formal probation from her 2007 Beverly Hills DUI case ended after judge Stephanie Sautner determined Lohan had satisfactorily completed the terms of her probation, which included community service and psychotherapy sessions.
