Official: Man's NYC arrest in Lohan dispute voided
by Laura Matovina


NEW YORK (AP) -- A law enforcement official says a 25-year-old man who got into an argument with Lindsay Lohan in her New York City hotel room over cellphone photos has been released from police custody.

The official was not authorized to speak publicly about the encounter Sunday morning and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Law enforcement officials interviewed both Lohan and Christian LaBella and determined the accusations against him could not be substantiated. They said his arrest would be voided.

Officials said that, instead, Lohan and LaBella sought harassment complaints against each other.

The police were called to the hotel after the actress apparently pulled the fire alarm and told police she'd been attacked. Officials said LaBella, of Valley Village, Calif., told them the actress had grabbed his phone.
