Actress Lindsay Lohan was involved in a scuffle with a man at a New York hotel on Sunday (September 30), police said, over what media reports described as her demand that photos of her be deleted from his cellphone.
Investigators took reports from both Lohan, 26, and the man, but charges appeared unlikely, said a spokeswoman for the New York City Police Department. A misdemeanor assault charge filed earlier in the day against the man was dropped, the spokeswoman said.
Police declined to confirm local media reports identifying the man as a staffer with a U.S. Congressman.
A representative for Lohan earlier in the day said the actress suffered minor injuries in what he described as an attack.
Celebrity website TMZ.com, citing sources close to the actress, identified the attacker as a man Lohan met at a New York nightclub.
The actress, who at one time had a promising film career, has been in and out of court, rehab and prison in recent years.
