Lindsay Lohan arrested for `punching woman` in nightclub over boyband heartthrob
London: Lindsay Lohan has been arrested after allegedly punching a blonde psychic at a New York nightclub in the early hours of Thursday morning, in a row over Max George from The Wanted.
The 26-year-old actress was at Avenue in Manhattan’s trendy Meatpacking district, where she is believed to have punched Tiffany Eve Mitchell, 28, a blonde psychic card reader from Florida, a leading daily has reported.
The flame-haired star is said to have a crush on George, 24, and attempted to get backstage to see the hunk after his chart-topping band supported Justin Bieber at Madison Square Garden.
Despite being banned, she met up with the boyband at the celebrity haunt, and the evening descended into chaos as the singer started chatting up another woman - not married Mitchell - riling Lohan, a source close to the band said.
Lohan and a friend joined the popstar and his bandmates Jay McGuiness and Tom Parker at the club.
Apparently a fight broke out near where a riled Lohan, a very drunk George and the Mitchells were partying - and it is not yet clear how it involved The Wanted singer.
Mitchell’s husband Wayne Stevens said: “We didn’t know it was Lindsay Lohan and it just kind of escalated because someone else had a brawl out in there.”
“The bouncer was having a fight with someone else, and I grabbed my wife right next to me and my friends had their wives. Then there were girls behind us and after it was over, one of them went and pushed my wife pretty hard - I don’t know why she pushed her.
“About five minutes later she comes round and tells my wife ‘I need space’ and then she just punched her. After that, the bouncer didn’t want to help, nobody wanted to help, and they said ‘there’s nothing we can do,’ so I went and called the police myself,” he said.
He said that the bouncer were not throwing her out because she’s Lindsay Lohan – “I said ‘well my wife got punched by Lindsay Lohan’.”
He added: “My wife is still very sore, she’s very distressed, her cheekbone is aching. She’s all mindboggled right now, I’m going to take her to the doctor.”
When asked about the singer, Stevens said: “I could see there was something else going on, but we had nothing to do with it. We were just caught up in something that was nothing to do with us.”
Lohan - still clad in her tight green mini-dress and black heels from her night out - left a Manhattan police station with a jacket over her head, while Mitchell, Stevens and a friend were also seen leaving another precinct.
