Man's NYC arrest in Lohan dispute voided
NEW YORK (AP) - A 25-year-old man initially arrested on 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, Mr Christian LaBella of California, 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's publicist Steve Honig expressed outrage that police did not charge Mr 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."
