Lindsay Lohan A No-Show For NYC Court Appearance

Lindsay Lohan A No-Show For NYC Court Appearance

Why was Lindsay Lohan a no-show for her New York City court appearance scheduled for this Monday morning? Apparently Lindsay Lohan decided to be a no-show because she was too busy putting on a show by partying in London.

Lindsay Lohan’s no-show just delays the court’s decision on whether the actress should face a misdemeanor assault charge for allegedly punching Palm Beach psychic Tiffany Mitchell during an altercation at Avenue nightclub on November 29. The judge could have issued a warrant for Lohan’s arrest, but she got lucky when the prosecutors asked for a delay in proceedings.

Standing outside the courthouse, Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer, Mark Heller, had some sarcastic remarks about the status of the case according to Yahoo Movies:

“It may very well be this case does not move forward…ironically a psychic fortune teller has predicted the year 2013 will be an extremely lucky year for Lindsay Lohan. From my understanding, Lindsay was being approached by a fortune teller who sought to provide a reading to her and she politely said ‘I don’t want to participate’ and declined.’ You would think if [Mitchell] was a fortune teller, she would have been able to see this happening in advance. But obviously her skills weren’t that honed.”

In addition, the lawyer claimed that his team had “very credible evidence and testimony” that would weaken the prosecution’s case, including a statement from a witness that Lohan “did absolutely nothing wrong [and] had made no contact with the alleged victim.” Meanwhile, OMG! explains what caused Lindsay Lohan’s no-show:

“Two days before her court date, Lohan – who was paid $100,000 by Brunei’s Prince Haji Abdul Azim to party with him across the pond – was photographed wide-eyed stumbling out of a London nightclub at 5 a.m. During another wild night out over the weekend, huge bruises could be seen up and down the star’s left arm as she covered up her head with a jacket.”

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Lindsay Lohan’s mom Dina claims her wild behavior is due to the domestic abuse and even an alleged rape that she witnessed as a child:

“She saw a lot of crazy stuff. I want the world to know the root of her problems. Michael beat the h*** out of me. When Lindsay saw the photo, she was furious [and said] ‘Tell the world! Talk about it!'”

What do you think about the Lindsay Lohan no-show?
