Lindsay Lohan Assault Case: 'The Investigation Is Still Continuing'

 

Lindsay Lohan's New York City nightclub brawl remains under investigation, The Associated Press reports.

The Liz & Dick star and tabloid trouble magnet did not appear in Manhattan criminal court on Monday to face the district attorney's decision on whether to make a case against Lohan for the Nov. 29 incident the club Avenue in which a woman claimed she slapped her in the face. Lohan was arrested and charged with third-degree misdemeanor assault.

Prosecutors postponed proceedings, announcing: "The investigation into this case is continuing."

No criminal complaint has been filed, and Lohan lawyer Mark Jay Heller said he predicts the D.A. won't press charges.

Lohan's probation was revoked last month in a Los Angeles court, with a judge setting a hearing for Jan. 15 to determine whether to give the actress more jail time.

Besides the assault episode, she faces misdemeanor counts of reckless driving, lying to a police officer and obstructing an officer from performing duties following a June accident in which her car crashed into a dump truck on Pacific Coast Highway.
