It is just not a great time in the universe to be Lindsay Lohan. Following recent charges of DUI, jewelery theft, and a possible hit and run, Ms. Lohan was the victim for once in an alleged assault. Early this morning the “actress” called the police when a male guest shoved and choked her.
Lindsay Lohan invited the man, now identified as Christian LaBella aged 25, and a few other friends up to her hotel room at the W Hotel after a night of partying at the club 1 Oak. When Lindsay asked LaBella to delete a few photos he had taken of her from his camera, LaBella refused. The fight then escalated to violence, luckily Lindsay’s other friends were there to pull him off of her or he could have caused some serious damage.
TMZ reports that Lohan told police, “she confronted the man about the pics and he threw her on the bed causing scratches on her hands.” LaBella was quickly identified and apprehended by the NYPD.
Lindsay’s rep, Steve Honig, was quick with a statement,
“Lindsay was assaulted early this morning in a New York hotel. While she did sustain some injuries, she was not hospitalized. The assailant was arrested and is currently in police custody. Lindsay has spoken with police and is fully cooperating with the investigation.”
Christian LaBella has been identified as the nephew of Heather McDonald, a comedian who frequently guests on Chelsea Lately. LaBella’s Facebook page shows a young man obsessed with celebrity. He has many photos with stars such as Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Joe Francis, and politicians Herman Cain and Paul Ryan.
LaBella has been arrested and charged with two misdemeanor counts of assault and two charges of harassment.
