Lindsay Lohan was reportedly assaulted in her New York City hotel room early Sunday morning.
An unidentified police officer said the 26-year-old actress was involved in an alternation with a 25-year-old man she met at 1OAK nightclub before bringing him back to her room on the 15th floor of the nearby W Hotel.
The argument stemmed from photos the man, identified as Christian LaBella, took of the actress on his mobile phone.
An insider said, “Lohan took the man’s cell phone from him and then he punched her” after the alleged photo incident.
Lindsay Lohan told police that at around 4:30 a.m. she saw photos of herself on LaBella’s phone, confronted him about them and took his phone.
Sources said LaBella then threw her on the bed causing scratches on her hands.
Lohan ran out of the hotel room and down the stairs of the hotel, but later headed back upstairs to her room. Once Christian saw her he allegedly attacked her again by choking her and throwing her to the ground, climbing on top of her.
A friend of Lohan’s pulled him off and they pulled the fire alarm for help.
Police arrived on the scene and took LaBella into custody.
The actress refused medical attention and did not go to the hospital.
LaBella’s Facebook page shows that he is often photographed with celebrities and he is the nephew of Heather McDonald from the show “Chelsea Lately.”
