LaBella allegedly took pictures of the 26-year-old and when she confronted him, he allegedly threw her on the bed and assaulted her. After which, Lohan ran out of the room, pulled the fire-alarm and called on hotel authorities to have the man arrested.

LaBella was charged on two counts of misdemeanor for assault and two counts of harassment. However, the NYPD claimed that the charges were dropped due to insufficient evidence.
Lohan is apparently very upset with the decision. Steve Honig, Lohan's spokesperson told the New York Daily News, "There is no question that Lindsay was assaulted,"
Lohan's father also had something to say in the matter. Michael Lohan told the WonderWall.msn.com, "Wait 'til I get this guy."
