Guess what? Lindsay Lohan didn’t show up to court today. The Punk’d star is facing charges of 3rd degree assault, and her attorney showed up for her instead at the Manhattan Criminal Court. So what happened next? Keep reading to find out!
Lindsay Lohan, (Or, her attorney, at this point) is fighting assault charges after Lindsay was arrested back in November following a nightclub altercation with a psychic. While Lindsay wasn’t there in person, we did hear from her attorney, Mark Heller, regarding the charges.
Mark Heller released a statement following the court proceeding: “It may very well be this case does not move forward…ironically a psychic fortune teller has predicted the year 2013 will be an extremely lucky year for Lindsay Lohan.” The case has been delayed after the defense team quit pushing the investigation.
It seems that there may be more to the story that meets the eye, as well. A witness came forward and said that Lindsay, “Did absolutely nothing wrong [and] had made no contact with the alleged victim.”
Mark also believes that this whole thing is a sham. ”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. 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.” Is it me, or does this attorney seem little unprofessional? Either way, Lindsay is a free lady; at least until her upcoming hearing on a probation violation later this month.
Do you think everything will catch up with Lindsay or is she going to have the lucky year the psychic predicted? Let us know in the comments!
