Poor Lindsay cannot get a break! Whether she is having a hard time, crashing cars, being chased by paparazzi, Lindsay is always under scrutiny and a heck of a mess. This time however it was NOT her fault.
Lindsay had been sadly, caught up as an easy mark by Christian LaBella Republican Congressional Staffer for He works for Rep. John Shimkus and is the nephew of comedian Heather McDonald.
Lohan had met up with Christian LaBella at 1OAK. Supposedly Christian LaBella was a little starstruck and started up a conversation. Turns out Miss Lohan invited him up to hang out in her hotel room at the NYC Union Square W Hotel where she was staying to hang out.
Around 6 am she took LaBella’s phone and became upset because he had been secretly taking pictures of her all night and was emailing them to friends.
LaBella got violent when she wouldn’t give back the phone and he escalated things. Lindsay was thrown down on the bed and scratched by LaBella. She got away, locked herself in the bathroom after the assault and waited until she could make a break for it out of her 15th floor sweet with Claus Hjelmbak.
Then it got uglier;
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.
Whoa. I’m going to sway a little here and say Lindsay REALLY did not deserve that insanity and LaBella just got labeled as a full grade asshole. Sadly, the assault charges were ‘dropped’.
Hmmm, I wonder if that has anything to do with being a Congressional staffer? I guess LaBella just dodged his first scandal thanks to ‘connections’. He’ll do fine in politics.
Watch your back Lindsay and stick with your work hunny.
This is the second time the NYPD has been called in to ‘deal’ with a Lohan situation. The first being a minor car accident involving the actress. Let’s hope it’s the LAST time too.
Let’s hope Lindsay is a little more careful while she is in New York filming.
