Lindsay Lohan No-Show for “Nightclub Fight” Court Hearing


/ January 7, 2013

Lindsay Lohan missed another set court date for a hearing involving her altercation at a NYC nightclub in November of 2012.

Tiffany Ava Mitchell, who works as a psychic in Palm Beach, alleges that Lohan punched her in the face outside of the club as she was trying to read her palm. However, Lilo’s attorney Mark Jay Heller told reporters she “never made any physical contact with the alleged victim.”

“From my understanding, Lindsay was being approached by a fortune teller who sought to provide a reading to her and she politely said ‘I don’t want to participate’ and declined,” Heller said. “You would think if [Mitchell] was a fortune teller, she would have been able to see this happening in advance. But obviously her skills weren’t that honed.”

He added: “Lindsay Lohan did not commit any crime, she did not assault anyone, all she did is verbally request her privacy.”

ABC News Reports:
Heller said Lohan will only appear in court when there is an accusatory document, which has not yet been filed. He signed required paperwork in her behalf today.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office said the investigation into the case is continuing.

Lohan was arrested on a charge of misdemeanor assault on Nov. 29 after allegedly punching Mitchell at a brawl at the Manhattan nightclub Avenue. Mitchell did not seek out medical attention. At the time of Lohan’s arrest, her attorney said the actress was “a victim of someone trying to capture their 15 minutes of fame.”
