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 ...

So I'm back and missed all the wild fun.....!!! With the shoe on the other foot tonight....I really don't care if he did anything or not ...but in my mind I can see her grabbing that phone away and him grabbing for it ...and getting it away and her going bonkers screaming and cussing and grabbing that fire alarm with a manical grin....
and her "friends trying to grab her before she does....I can see the scrambling going on to get rid of any evidence of what they were really doing in that room at 2.30 am in the morning....LOL and when the cops arrive I bet they saw the best behaved bunch of drunks they have ever seen...Every one one them looking out to make sure their own asses were covered to hell with Lindsay Lohan ...and thats the reason the charges were dropped .. ...
Help got news for you ithe way she shows bruises she would be showing purple by the time the cops got there....So unless she gets someone to grab her arms and bruise her up by tomorrow so she will have something to show Paps and people shes out of luck...
And LOL..."Mike 490whatever"
TMZ will be the first in line to buy any photo off of that phone you hypocrite and you know it... It would be the first time they done it either.....

"These TMZ stories about Lindsay are bogus. TMZ have hyped this up to astronomical heights. This incident is dead but TMZ will probably give us some more BS from sources. Stop being so gullible."


Don't ya just LOVE a good enabler? When the story first came out that Blohan was 'assaulted' and Christian was 'arrested', the enablers quoted the tmz story as the GOSPEL TRUTH. Now that it turns out Blohan is a LIAR and charges were dropped, now all of a sudden, tmz is 'hyped' and were all 'gullible' for believing. OY VEY!

From the AP:
"NEW YORK — A 25-year-old man initially arrested Sunday on an assault charge after Lindsay Lohan claimed he grabbed her in a 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 were filing 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."

Yup    

Of course there were no charges filed; there was no evidence that anything happened other than her histrionics & drama. She's queen drama bitch; everything is not only about her, but there's a huge societal conspiracy to "get her", it's always a "set up". Well, whorehan, the police don't believe what you said. Basically, they called you an unbelievable drama queen liar. Suck on that, whorehan...
