Lindsay Lohan Claims Assault After a Manhattan Nightclub Encounter

Categories: Lindsay Lohan
Over the past month, we've been trying to keep up with Lindsay Lohan's Manhattan escapades, for whatever the reason (still unsure why, exactly). But, (un)fortunately, the star loves to create news and we're here to capture it all together and put it into blog format. So here we go again:

Last night, after a rambunctious night at Downtown nightclub, 1 Oak, Lohan brought a 25-year-old guy back to her hotel room. The guy, however, somehow had a bunch of pictures of the celebrity on his phone, taken from the 15th floor of the W Hotel, when Lohan was with a bunch of friends.

Once she saw that he had these in his possession, she tried to take the phone away from the man and he punched her in the face. According to Lohan's account to authorities, which this is all based off of, he also tried to choke her.

Cops became aware of the situation because Lohan pulled the fire alarm after running from the room. And, now, the suspect is being held at the 13th Precinct on East 21st Street, waiting his charges and recovering from a rough Saturday night.

And that's it. That's all we've got for Ms. Lohan today.

Lindsay Lohan Sentenced to Jail; New York to Allow Conjugal Visits for Gay Inmates

  • Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 100 days in jail yesterday for violating her drunk driving probation. She was held in custody for five hours before being sprung out of jail on a $75,000 bail (no indication of any Dog the Bounty Hunter involvement). LiLo is free for now while her lawyer appeals the sentence, but she has to start doing 480 hours of community service right away: 360 hours in a women's center, and a bizarre and fraught 120 hours in the L.A. County morgue. [CNN]
  • New York State will allow conjugal visits for gay inmates in marriages or civil unions. Gay prisoners will also now be allowed a furlough if their partner becomes terminally ill. Steps forward! Word to the wise, though, Daily News: watch out what goes into the URL. I can see that "paint the clinks pink" joke and so can everyone else. [NYDN]

Lindsay Lohan to Pull a Prince, Drop the "Lohan"

When push comes to shove, we really don't care whether Paris Hilton calls herself Paris or Farthead, whether Madonna has one name or two, or whether Prince calls himself by an actual name or chooses to go by a symbol. Nor do we care much about Lindsay Lohan, but she seems to think differently, and so does her mother. Dina Lohan has announced that her daughter will now be going by simply "Lindsay."

Lindsay Lohan Is Being Treated Like a Common Criminal [VIDEO]

Thumbnail image for lindsay-lohan111.jpg
Lindsay Lohan appeared in court today and the New York Post called her "sexed-up." Sexed up? She was just wearing a skintight $575 Kimberly Ovitz dress in virginal white, for Pete's sake! This is a huge indicator of how her terrible day went. All Lindsay wanted to do was show up to court (without anything rude on her nails), plead not guilty, look fab, and have everybody love her! She did the first three but the public still isn't back in love with LiLo. Instead they treated her like a plain old thief.
