Lohan & W Hotel: Lohan In Hotel ‘Assault’

October 1, 2012 by  

Lohan & W Hotel: Lohan In Hotel ‘Assault’, Lindsay Lohan got into a scuffle with a congressional staffer over cellphone pictures. She told cops he tried to choke her.

Lindsay Lohan just can’t stay out of trouble, but this time the drama queen is pinning the mess on a party pest with a cell-phone camera.

The “Mean Girls” actress mixed it up with a starstruck congressional staffer in her Manhattan hotel early Sunday, prompting cops to step in.

Police say Lohan took Christian LaBella’s cell phone so she could delete dozens of pictures and videos of her partying – and she claims he got physical with her trying to get it back.

After Lohan, 26, called the cops, LaBella, 25, who works for an Illinois Republican, was initially charged with misdemeanor assault in the blowup at the W Hotel Union Square.

But law enforcement sources said the assault rap has already been dropped.

It was the second time in as many weeks that the NYPD has been called to resolve an issue with Lohan, coming on the heels of her arrest for leaving the scene of a minor car accident.

“She’s very shaken up,” Lohan’s mother, Dina, told the Daily News Sunday afternoon as she comforted the troubled starlet. “Thank God he didn’t have a weapon.”

Lohan met LaBella – who is from Valley Village, Calif., but has been working in Washington – during her night hanging out at trendy clubs Double Seven and 1Oak.

He works for Rep. John Shimkus and is the nephew of comedian Heather McDonald.

Christian LaBella, 25, was charged with misdemeanor assault and harassment on Lindsay Lohan. However, the charge was later dropped.
After the club closed around 4 a.m., the actress and LaBella wound up back in her room at the W with other friends, including celebrity booker Claus Hjelmbak.

At about 6 a.m., she took LaBella’s cell phone and got upset after discovering the pictures of herself taken earlier in the evening, police sources said. He had been emailing them to friends.

LaBella demanded she return the phone, but Lohan balked – and told cops he threw her down on the bed and scratched her. At one point, the troubled actress locked herself in a bathroom. She finally ran out of the 15th-floor suite – where rooms top $500 a night – and scurried down several flights of stairs, with Hjelmbak in tow.

When the “Freaky Friday” star and her hunky pal began walking back up the stairs, they again encountered LaBella, sources said.

She claimed that he choked her from behind and threw her to the floor before Hjelmbak yanked him away, cops said. Lohan pulled the fire alarm for help as he fled, police said.

Cops who responded spoke to Lohan and began looking for LaBella, who was trapped in the stairwell because the alarm had disabled the elevators.

As he exited the stairwell, police grabbed him. Lohan identified him as her attacker, and he was taken to the 13th Precinct stationhouse.

The assault charge was tossed hours later because Lohan refused medical attention and did not appear to be seriously hurt, sources said.

LaBella and Lohan filed harassment complaints against each other, but the actions will not result in police charges, sources said.
