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.

Hey all--I've got so much to say

1. Mark Heller: When was the last time you saw such an absurd post-hearing press conference? Yup. That would be Milo and his minister friend. When was the last time you saw Shawn behave in such a manner? Never. (now you know why I didn't think Shawn would want him as the NYC attorney)


2. Nicole--you mentioned that Heller is a family friend--yeah of her "he is dead to me" father.


3. We really don't know whether Lindsay skipped the hearing or was told by the DA's Office she didn't have to show up. Either is plausible.

4. The same split reasoning applies to the case. They weren't prepared to move forward but they also didn't drop it.


5. I did some quick research: LL was charged with 3rd degree misdemeanor assault. One of the elements of the crime is causing physical injury to another person. According to one of the leading cases in this area "pretty slaps, shoves, kicks and the like" which don't cause injury do not constitute 3rd degree misd. assault. BUT, there are lesser offenses such as attempted assault in the 3rd degree and harassment in the 2nd degree. Look up the latter--it's interesting.


6. Justice moves slowly.


7. Nicole--I think your glee in nothing happening to Lindsay today is so misplaced. One of my nieces lives and works on the West Side of LA--near the Chateau Marmont. If this was your relative and she was hit and injured by a car driven by a drunk/drugged Lindsay how thrilled would you be?

Heller continued, "After being booked and spending 4 hours at the police precinct last November, Ms Lohan's best friend Gavin Doyle arrived to post bail for her. [DUIna had declined to do so.} Upon leaving the precinct, Ms Lohan politely screamed to Mr Doyle, 'Get OUT, get OUT, GET OUT OF THE CAR GAVIN, GET OUT NOW!!!!'"

Can someone fill me in, I haven't had time to read thru all the comments, been busy at work! So Liho had an option to show or not to show? She wasn't required to show, only her attorney?

NIC-HOLE.... Why do you HATE Revel so much? She gave your precious little Borderline Crackie 2 weeks to surrender herself to jail. Crackie spent the 6-7 days prior to her jail sentence DETOXING in her new atty. Shapiro's recovery house(when she temporarily fired Holley). That was a GIFT from Revel. Are you on your knees praying that this new Judge will give her 2 weeks before she surrenders to jail so that she can detox in PRIVATE? Detoxing as a PRISONER will not be kept private. EVERYONE will know and she and her POS MONSTER MOTHER-aka her PIMP and drinking/druggie buddy-won't be able to deny it. TICK TOCK....BORDERLINE CRACKIE...Judgement day is looming.

.....White Oprah is half-right, LiLo is messed up because her father is messed up, but she's also messed up because her mother is messed up too. Usually when one piece of trash fvck-up (see: Michael Lohan) makes a baby with another fvck-up (see: White Oprah), the baby grows up to either be a fvck-up or realizes they don't want to be a fvck-up and escapes their family by entering a monastery far, far away.

Yes, that's Cody Lohan's cue to shave his head and start heading for the giant holy building up in the mountains.

And LiLo was supposed to be in court today for slapping that psychic in a club, but the hearing was pushed back, because prosecutors realized she has more important things to do like party in London.

When Michael was raping and beating mama bitcho was he wearing a little tie and a little suit? That would explain Dina's trauma of seeing Dr. Phil in his little suit and tie.
