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.

Puts Beiber smoking a blunt into perspective. There are people that have real drug and alcohol problems and it shows up in all aspects of ones life. Beiber smoked a joint and it was caught on camera, doesn't make him an addict or someone in need of help. Lindsey is an example of what could happen to young people in such a fast paced lifestyle. Lindsey isn't the only addict/criminal (supposed I guess) that has gone back and forth through the system for doing the same things. Unfortunately Lindsey is an example of things that are happening all over. I do hope it catches up with her but it may not help. Lots of people go to jail and when they come out they go right back to the same lifestyle. I wonder if they will just put her back on the ankle bracelet, it seems to at least keep her honest

she didn't dodge anything. if there was concrete proof she did anything they would have gone ahead and charged her. there is obviously some question on the whole situation. more than likely, this will be like the hit and run where there was no proof to move it forward and it will be dropped. anyone can make an allegation but you still have to prove it.

Damn, they could have gotten her butt for contempt of court! Hopefully, the prosecutors only delayed the proceedings because the case they are putting together will finally nail her ass!

I hope that lawyer isn't being paid too much, if that's the best defense he can come up with. I think someone going after 15 minutes of fame would do it with a winner, not a down and out loser like Lindsay.

In other words, a deal is being hashed out between Lindsay and the woman she hit.

Damn, this is like spending a long time filling up a balloon and just when you finally think you've reach the end you look up and see a big hole. The hot air rushing out at you all at once and the sick wasted time feeling you get just makes you sick.

I don't understand how Lindsay keeps getting off the hook. Any of us normal people who has done what she has done would be sitting in a cell.
