NEW YORK — Lindsay Lohan’s attorney predicts there will be no case against the actress in connection with an alleged fight at a Manhattan nightclub.
Attorney Mark Jay Heller spoke after signing paperwork at the courthouse Monday. Heller says he’s been told the prosecutor’s office is still investigating.
Office of Court Administration spokesman David Bookstaver confirmed that a criminal complaint has not been drawn up at this time.
Lohan was arrested on a charge of misdemeanor assault in the Nov. 29 incident at the club Avenue.
The “Mean Girls” and “Liz and Dick” star allegedly struck a woman in the face during an argument.
At the time of her arrest, her attorney, Heller said Lohan was “a victim of someone trying to capture their 15 minutes of fame.”
