Lindsay, Lindsay, Lindsay, she just can’t stay away from legal trouble. This time TMZ.com reported Lindsay Lohan allegedly punched a women in the left side of the face at Club Avenue, a New York nightclub. Lindsay was arrested Nov. 29th at 4 in the morning and charged with 3rd degree misdemeanor assault. Lohan is pissed about the situation and believes the victim, a women named Tiffany Mitchell, is fabricating the accusation to get her to write a check.
Tiffany Mitchell has already hired big time attorney Gloria Allred to sue Lohan for damages. Attorney to the stars, Gloria Allred may have a tougher case than she anticipates, photos of Mitchell leaving the club have leaked and don’t show any bruising or damage to the left side of her face. Also, a photo released today doesn’t indicate assault to the face, on the contrary, Mitchell’s facial skin looks flawless. Not a smart move by attorney and victim to have photos taken displaying a picture perfect face.
Lohan has hired a private investigator to dive into Mitchell’s criminal history and past lawsuits. Lindsay is claiming she never laid a hand on Tiffany and the only contact they had in the club was a confrontation to get her purse back that Lohan thought Mitchell had taken.
Police detectives have confiscated the club’s surveillance tape to hopefully provide evidence to who is really telling the truth about the assault!
Bad news for Lindsay, this assault charge could be a probation violation on a prior case. It’s the judges discretion to determine the penalty for the probation violation. She could be fined, face jail time, be assigned to work crew, etc.
Former WNBA player Chamique Holdsclaw unleashed built up anger on her ex-girlfriend / ex-teammate, Jennifer Lacy by bashing in her car and firing a gun. According to TMZ.com, Lacy believed her former Atlanta Dream teammate was still angry at her for breaking-up their 4 year-long relationship.
On November 13th, Holdsclaw had been following Lacy in her Range Rover SUV. She waited for Lacy to pull the car over and get out. Raging and armed, Chamique approached the SUV and smashed in windows, next she drew a nine mm pistol, fired a shot into the car and then fled.
Police noted an odor of an accelerant in and on the SUV. They suspect Chamique Holdsclaw poured gas onto the car prior to the incident with the intent of blowing the SUV up by firing a bullet into it.
Jennifer Lacy, was not injured and is refusing to speak to her unstable ex. Chamique Holdsclaw is being held in an Atlanta jail on $100,000 bail and must comply with wearing a home monitoring ankle bracelet before being released. Holdsclaw is facing 2 counts of aggravated assault, 2 counts of criminal damage to property and 1 count of possession of a fire arm during the commission of a felony. She is scheduled back to court November 30th.
Holdsclaw’s fame has come from her talent to score points in a basketball game. However, in this legal situation, Holdsclaw wants to sit the bench and not score points because the more she scores in this game the longer and harsher the sentencing range would become if she were to be found guilty of the allegations.
Rapper Flavor Flav lost control early Wednesday morning when he violently pushed his fiance down to the ground twice and reportedly with two knives in hand chased his fiance’s 17-year-old son around their Vegas house.
According to TMZ.com the police report stated the fight began with Flavor Flav’s fiancé accusing him of cheating on her. Flav became angry, ripped her earrings out and threw her to the ground. The teenage son tried to come to his mother’s aid. At that point the rapper grabbed two knives and turned his focus on the son, chasing him around the house into a locked room. Flavor Flav kicked the door down and threatened to kill the boy.
Flavor Flav posted the $23,000 bail and will return to court next week to address the charges of misdemeanor battery and felony assault with a deadly weapon. The rapper is denying the death threat allegations, as well as the assault with knives.
In most States, if Flavor Flav entered into a diversion program he would at minimum have to complete a domestic violence treatment program. If he is found guilty of domestic violence he will lose his right to bear a firearm among other penalties. If he is found guilty of a felony assault he will also lose his right to vote (perhaps 1 less vote for Obama).
I’m guessing Flavor Flav’s fiance is having second thoughts on marriage especially if Flav did threaten her son at knife point saying he was going to kill him. The ring may be in the trash or more likely on Ebay. Money in her pocket…yeahhhhh boooyeeee!!!! Or maybe we will see this couple on the next season of Couples Therapy, always entertaining to have volatile people on that show.
