0930_lindsay_lohan_3Lindsay Lohan will not be getting the justice she was seeking ... police have dropped charges against the man accused of attacking her early this morning in a New York hotel ... TMZ has learned. 

Christian LaBella was arrested after LiLo claimed he attacked her when she confronted him about secretly taking pictures and video of her in the hotel room. Lohan and a few friends had met LaBella earlier in the evening at a nightclub.

LaBella had initially been charged with two misdemeanor counts of assault and two counts of harassment. But the NYPD tells TMZ the charges have been dropped, after detectives investigated further and there was not enough evidence to support LiLo's claims.

Just your typical Lindsay Lohan weekend ...

Being the charges are dropped does LeBella still have an arrest record? I hope not. Is she going to get anything for falsely pulling a fire alarm?

Latest from the AP:
Official: Man's NYC arrest in Lohan dispute voided
By COLLEEN LONG, AP

NEW YORK — A 25-year-old man initially arrested Sunday on an assault charge after Lindsay Lohan claimed he grabbed her in her New York hotel room in an argument over cellphone images was freed hours later and his arrest voided when the charge could not be substantiated, law enforcement officials said.

Instead, Christian LaBella of Valley Village, Calif., and Lohan filed harassment complaints with police against each other after they were interviewed by police about their run-in, law enforcement officials said.

Afterward, Lohan publicist Steve Honig expressed outrage that police did not charge LaBella.

"We think it's both distressing and outrageous," he said in a telephone interview. "Lindsey was assaulted and there needs to be a consequence for that."

LaBella could not be reached for comment.

LaBella was taken into custody about 6 a.m. after a 911 call came from the swank W Hotel in Manhattan's Union Square where Lohan apparently pulled the fire alarm, the two officials said. The officials were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

A former congressional aide, LaBella was arrested on a misdemeanor assault charge but released later Sunday. The charge could not be substantiated so the arrest will be voided, the officials said.

The paperwork was being completed on cross-harassment complaints, which are considered a violation, and no other legal action would be taken, the officials said.

Lohan and LaBella met hours earlier at a night club, though it was unclear whether they previously knew each other, the officials said. They went back to her room, when she noticed the cellphone photos of her on his phone and grabbed the device, the officials said.

She claimed LaBella grabbed her and threw her, but later he said she had forcefully taken his phone, the officials said. Lohan was injured but not hospitalized, Honig said in a statement.

"Lindsay has spoken with police and is fully cooperating with the investigation," he said after LaBella's arrest.

This is Lohan's second run-in with law enforcement in as many weeks in New York City. The 26-year-old was accused last week of clipping a pedestrian with her car outside a nightclub and driving away. She was given a ticket and was scheduled to appear in court Oct. 23. Honig has said he expects those allegations to be proven false.

The actress was also involved in a car accident in California this summer that sent her and an assistant to a hospital, but didn't result in serious injuries for anyone. The accident remains under investigation.

In May, she was cleared of allegations that she struck a Hollywood nightclub manager with her car.

Lohan remains on informal probation for taking a necklace from a jewelry store without permission last year. That means she doesn't have to check in with a judge or probation officer but could face a jail term if arrested again.

Lohan recently filmed "The Canyons," an indie film written by "Less Than Zero" and "American Psycho" author Bret Easton Ellis.

Steve Tomaszewski, a spokesman for Illinois Rep. John Shimkus, confirmed Sunday afternoon that LaBella has worked for the congressman in his Washington office. Tomaszewski said no one from the Republican's office had been contacted by LaBella.

I think this is my favorite part of the AP report I just posted: "Afterward, Lohan publicist Steve Honig expressed outrage that police did not charge LaBella.

"We think it's both distressing and outrageous," he said".

Hey dude, now you know how her victims feel. What a putz.

Oh No! Her fake asthma or walking pneumonia has returned and Michael Lohan is threatening the guy:


NYDN

Lohan’s father, Michael, had not spoken to his daughter but had a message for her antagonist.


“Wait till I get this guy,” he said.


Lohan left the W Hotel about 2 p.m. Sunday through a loading dock and headed to her mother’s home on Long Island. A family friend said the episode set off an asthma attack.


“She’s been inside all day,” another family friend said. “She’s not coming out.”

Ironic isn't it that when the police want to question Crackie when she's a suspect she hides behind her lawyer but when something allegedly happens to her she is little Miss Chatty Cathy. As I see it, nothing will happen with these "harrassment" charges from both parties. It's a he said-she said incident with no physical injuries reported. However, if Crackie was the one who pulled the fire alarm she should be charged and prosecuted for that. I have a feeling, though, that the NYPD will take pity on Crackie and believe her "my phone was inept and so I pulled the fire alarm to get help" excuse and nothing will come of this either. But fear not- when the photos/videotape of her living life to the fullest without any regrets goes viral her so-called comeback will be derailed. And that will be the final nail in her coffin. Every time Holley got her off for her many felonies(yes felonies-just because they were pled down to misdemeanors does not negate the seriousness of her crimes), she did her a disservice because Crackie actually got into more trouble violating her probation and dragging this out over 6 years in full view of not only the viewing public but her potential bosses as well. If she had just accepted the consequences of her actions and just done the time, we would not have been privy to this drug-fueled drama she calls her life. She has gone from A-List to a joke with no noteworthy films during what should have been the climax of her acting career. So while she sits there with a smirk on her face believing she's the teflon queen, she's lost 6 years of her life that she can NEVER get back. She had Hollywood on their knees at one time. And now ironically, she makes her living on hers. Rejoice, for karma has indeed come for Crackie.

LISA    

I sense a LOHAN ARRESTED and CHARGED headline tomorrow! In Canada, she could be charged with Public Mischief, False Fire Alarm, Attempt Theft and Breach of Probation, with up to 5 years Jail just for the Mischief charge alone (if she lied about the incident). Hope the US has similiar laws and charges.
