NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Lindsay Lohan’s attorney predicts there will be no case against the actress in connection with an alleged fight at a Manhattan nightclub.
Attorney Mark Jay Heller spoke after signing paperwork at the courthouse Monday.
Lohan was arrested on a misdemeanor assault charge in the Nov. 29 incident at Club Avenue. She’s accused of punching 28-year-old Tiffany Mitchell at the Chelsea club after getting into a spat with her.
Office of Court Administration spokesman David Bookstaver said that a criminal complaint has not been drawn up at this time. Lohan’s lawyer signed some paperwork, but a hearing was not held.
The District Attorney’s Office says they are still investigating the incident.
At the time of her arrest Heller said Lohan was “a victim of someone trying to capture their 15 minutes of fame.”
“I am completely confident that the case will be resolved favorably and Lindsay Lohan will be totally exonerated,” he said.
This case comes about a week before Lohan is scheduled to appear at a probation violation hearing in California. That’s in connection with a car crash last summer.
In that case, Lohan is accused of lying to a Santa Monica police officer about who was behind the wheel.
The November incident was one of several run-ins with the law Lohan had last year.
Meanwhile, according to the Daily News, Lohan’s mother Dina is claiming that “Lindsay saw her dad abuse me — that’s why she’s so screwed up.”
