Lindsay Lohan a no-show at assault hearing
Lindsay Lohan was a no-show at a court hearing in New York regarding her alleged nightclub assault on a psychic named Tiffany Ava Mitchell.
Lohan's attorney, Mark Jay Heller, tells ABC News he does not expect the case to go forward, and claims Lohan never made physical contact with Mitchell.
"From my understanding, Lindsay was being approached by a fortune teller who sought to provide a reading to her and she politely said 'I don't want to participate' and declined," says Heller. "You would think if [Mitchell] was a fortune teller, she would have been able to see this happening in advance. But obviously her skills weren't that honed."
Shortly after the nightclub incident, it was reported Lohan attacked Mitchell because she was getting the attention of Lindsay's intended date for the night, Max George of pop group The Wanted.
Heller signed paperwork on Lohan's behalf in court, and says his client will appear only when there is an accusatory document filed.
Officials say the investigation is still ongoing.
