Actress Lindsay Lohan was involved in minor scuffle with a man last weekend at a New York hotel after demanding that photos of her be deleted from his cellphone.

Lohan, 26, gave a report to investigators about the stranger, but charges appeared unlikely, according to police. A misdemeanor assault charge filed earlier in the day against the man was dropped, the spokeswoman said.

Authorities declined to confirm local media reports identifying the suspect as Christian LaBella, 25, of California, a staffer with Congressman John Shimkus, an Illinois Republican.

"Nobody's been arrested, there's no assault," the police spokeswoman told Reuters. "Reports were taken and both parties were able to give their account of what took place."

Lohan's spokesman Steve Honig earlier in the day said Lohan suffered minor injuries in what he described as an attack, and said her assailant was arrested.

"Lindsay was victim of an assault," Honig stated. "She does not face any charges."

Lindsay Lohan Arrested After Hit & Run In NYC

Celebrity website TMZ.com, citing sources close to the actress, identified the attacker as a man Lohan met at a New York nightclub.

The two began arguing in Lohan's hotel room after she noticed he was taking pictures of her with his cellphone, TMZ and E! News reported.

Lohan told police the man threw her to the ground, climbed on top of her and tried to choke her before someone else pulled him off, TMZ said.

Honig declined comment on the media reports.

Lohan, who has been in and out of court, rehab and prison in recent years, was arrested in New York last week after a pedestrian told police that her car had struck him in an alley. She was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, a misdemeanor.
