According to our sources, Lohan told police she met the man at 1 Oak, a nightclub in Chelsea. Lohan said the two got into an argument later on in her hotel room after Lindsay noticed the man had taken photos of her on his phone.
A few of Lindsay’s friends were in the room at the time the photos were taken.
Sources say Lindsay told police she confronted the man about the pics and he threw her on the bed causing scratches on her hands. Lindsay ran out of the room, but returned later. When she did, Lohan claims the man attacked her, choked her, threw her to the ground, and climbed on top of her.
According to sources, a friend of hers was able to pull the man off her. Lohan claims she pulled the fire alarm to signal for help and cops were able to arrive in time to arrest the man.
Law enforcement sources in New York say the man was idenitifed as Christian LaBella. He was arrested on two misdemeanor counts of assault and two charges of harassment.
