Lindsay Lohan

Dodges Legal Bullet ...

For Now

breaking news

1214_lindsay_lohan_01Lindsay Lohan was a no-show in a NYC courtroom this morning for her nightclub assault case -- but, luckily for her ... prosecutors delayed the proceedings.

Lohan was scheduled to make her first court appearance for the nightclub fight she got into with a woman back in November. LiLo allegedly punched the woman in her face, then got arrested (below) and booked for 3rd degree misdemeanor assault.

This morning prosecutors announced, "The investigation into this case is continuing."

Good thing, since Lindsay never made it to the courthouse, and it was touch and go if she'd make it anyway ... since she's been hanging in London for the last week.

Attorney Mark Heller -- who says he's representing Linds -- was there and claims she's "a victim of someone trying to capture their 15 minutes of fame." He also said a psychic told Lindsay Lohan she will have a great 2013 ... so there's that.

yes, hopefully it means they are actually going to charge her with something this time and are biding their time in filing actual charges. Note she was not required to come in because they had not filed yet which is why her attorney only had to show.

Wonder when her attorneys are going to bail on her when she can't pay them anymore.

I wonder if Lohan's various "benefactors" have started bribing witnesses into forgetting what they saw LL do that night.

Not shocking at all. NYC doesn't want to deal with this mess. Join the rest of Hollywood.

Doesn't matter what this girl does, until someone in authority steps up and says "enough is enough!" and gives her some serious jail time, she isn't gonna be accountable for any of her actions! Just like all the other celebrities before her that refused to own up to get demons, she will die young and what will her legacy be then? Another child actors tragic life. Put her in jail. She'll be forced to get sober. Make sure she's in general population so she can learn about other women's real life horror stories. Maybe then she'll realize being a celebrity is not so hard to handle.

So where was she? Still in London? It might help her if she actually showed up. She doesn't care, cuz they will just slap her on the wrist. Loser
