NEW YORK -- New York City prosecutors will not charge Lindsay Lohan for an alleged fight at a Manhattan nightclub in November, an attorney for the actress said Friday.
Attorney Marc Heller said Lohan faces no charges after prosecutors were unable to gather sufficient evidence. "She's totally clear and exonerated," Heller said.
A spokeswoman for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance declined to comment.
Lohan was arrested Nov. 29 on a charge of misdemeanour assault after an encounter with a woman at the club Avenue in the trendy Meatpacking District.
Lohan's accuser, Tiffany Mitchell, was "disappointed" the district attorney's office decided not to prosecute, said her attorney, Gloria Allred.
"Ms. Mitchell is considering all of her legal options in the civil justice system because of what she suffered that night," Allred said.
The district attorney's decision was welcomed news for Liz and Dick star, who accepted a plea deal Monday in a misdemeanour car crash case in California. The 26-year-old actress was sentenced to spend five days in jail, but that time will be served in a locked-down rehabilitation facility. The plea deal also includes 90 days in rehab, 30 days of community labour and a fine.
