Lindsay Lohan

Instigated Hotel Fight

... Says Witness

EXCLUSIVE

0419_the_standard_lilo_getty_2
Lindsay Lohan was the instigator, aggressor and drink-tosser in the fight at The Standard Hotel Wednesday night ... this according to a witness who was with the other girl involved in the altercation.

The witness tells us ... the incident began after a major misunderstanding between the two sides while they were partying at the Smoke and Mirrors nightclub inside the hotel.

We're told the girl was hanging out at the booth next to Lindsay's ... when Lohan tapped her on the shoulder aggressively and asked, "Did you bump into me?"

The girl denied the bump ... and suggested the real culprit could have been one of the guys in Lindsay's group. She then pointed to one of the men.

Lindsay replied, "That's my dad ... why would he bump me?"

The girl shot back, "You go clubbing with your dad?"

That's when Lindsay snapped ... so says the witness ... who claims Lindsay began cussing at the girl and then threw a drink at her face.

We're told Lindsay's dad realized what was happening ... grabbed his daughter ... and bailed.

Michael Lohan appeared on "TMZ Live" yesterday and adamantly denied his daughter chucked any beverage that night (below) ... claiming it was Lindsay who was the real victim and the recipient of the liquid projectile.

Either way, the other girl is currently weighing her legal options.

Sources close to Lindsay tell us LiLo is adamant -- her dad is telling the true story.

Big surprise there, no? Let me remind you that this is the woman who got pissed off at someone and stole a car in which to chase them down.

The girl didn't say she's weighing her legal options, TMZ said that. If the girl had said it, there would quotes around it.

FROM RADARONLINE


By Jen Heger
Radar Assistant Managing Editor

Cops investigating claims that Lindsay Lohan assaulted a woman at The Standard Hotel in West Hollywood want to talk to the wayward actress, but she has no plans to meet with them, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

Lindsay is being investigated for allegedly assaulting Marisa Dugas two weeks ago. The actress vehemently denied being out that night, claiming she was at home watching television when the incident allegedly occurred, even though three people – including the accuser — have now filed police reports.

However, detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department have recently received the surveillance video from the hotel on the night in question and it clearly shows Lohan at the club, despite her claims to the contrary.

"Law enforcement had been in contact with Lindsay's attorney last week, and they wanted to formally interview her," a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com.

"The lead investigator was told that Lindsay wasn't going to be made available at this time though. She is under no obligation to be interviewed, but Marisa, her friend and the bouncer who witnessed the alleged assault, have all been formally interviewed by cops."

A law enforcement source previously told RadarOnline.com, "Investigators obtained the surveillance video from the Smoke & Mirrors nightclub at The Standard Hotel and it clearly shows that Lindsay was there on the night of the alleged assault.

"The investigation is still ongoing and follow-up interviews will now be conducted as necessary. Of course, investigators want to interview Lindsay about the incident, but she hasn't been interviewed yet, nor is she under any obligation to do so."

When contacted for comment, Lohan's rep initially denied his client was at the hotel and told RadarOnline.com, "Whomever is responsible for this lie will be held accountable for their misguided actions." However, he is now saying, "We're going to wait for the Sheriff's Department to release their findings before we comment any further."

Despite being warned by Judge Stephanie Sautner at her last progress report hearing to stay out of clubs, the actress just can't seem to stay home.

Lohan reportedly went back to the scene of the alleged crime on Wednesday night, and had a drink thrown on her by another woman sitting in a nearby booth after becoming embroiled in a verbal altercation.

The embattled actress is supposed to begin filming the Liz Taylor biopic for Lifetime Television soon, but as RadarOnline.com previously reported, she still hasn't signed the contract yet.

Lindsay's rep had no comment on this story.

LINDSAY “NIGHT TRAIN” LOHAN GOES BUMP IN THE NIGHT?

Lohan Inc. Denies that Lindsay was down on all fours doing a doggie rodeo and huffing a crack glass pipe while going up in Smoke at the Smoke and Mirrors, eh? Rodeo Style is a Lindsay Special at night clubs and hotels around town and explains her recent hair loss. Men put $100 into a hat and climb aboard the down facing dog, a$$ high Linds. They grab her head, hair or neck and scream obscenities, or lost roles or other women’s names and Lilo tries to buck them off. The objective is to stay on eight seconds after they tell her she is the ugliest, least talented, brokest, dumbest crack ho in the room. Linds with a fresh huff of crack and a shot of vodka breaks out of the imagined gate under a table and snorts, bucks, and tries to get them off in any way possible. They call her Night Train because there is always a line for the $ex and there is no height requirement to ride this attraction. She was an E ticket ride at Disneyland back when they had the old ticket system and she was a troubled star.

Dear Lindsay,

1) Stay home.
2) When you get work, have someone drive you to/from your acting jobs.
3) Then remain at home after work.

Going out at night appears to invite nothing but trouble for you, so just let it go for now.
