New York: Lindsay Lohan has dropped the charges she levelled against a former congressional aide, whom she had accused of assaulting her at her Manhattan hotel room.
The ‘Mean Girls’ star accused 25-year-old Christian LaBella of choking and scratching her, after she confiscated his cell phone at Manhattan’s W Hotel.
“I don’t have any comment at this time. I’m thrilled the charges were dropped. That’s all I got to say,” the New York Daily News quoted him as telling TMZ.com.
Lohan had earlier said that LaBella latched on to her entourage during her crew’s night out at trendy clubs Double Seven and 1Oak.
Once Lohan realized that he was taking and emailing photos of her without permission, police said she grabbed LaBella’s cellphone to delete the offending pictures.
That’s when, she said, LaBella got physical trying to get it back.
The assault charges, however, was dropped shortly afterwards when Lohan refused medical attention and didn’t seem to be seriously hurt, law enforcement officials said.
