Lindsay Lohan heads to court again - this time over alleged NY nightclub fight

Lindsay Lohan is scheduled to appear Monday at New York criminal court to learn whether a prosecutor plans to pursue a case against for her alleged role in a fight at a Manhattan nightclub.

Lohan was charged with misdemeanor assault after allegedly punching a woman in the early morning hours of November 29, 2012.

She is accused of hitting Tiffany Mitchell, 28, of Palm Beach, Florida, at the trendy Avenue Lounge in Manhattan's Chelsea district.

It is the latest legal trouble for the 26-year-old actress, whose struggle with drugs and alcohol has seen her bounce in and out of court 19 times and to five rehabilitation facilities since 2007.

Lohan's New York lawyer, Mark Heller, told CNN in November: "Once again, Lindsay Lohan is a victim of someone trying to capture their 15 minutes of fame."

"From my initial investigation, I am completely confident that this case will be concluded favorably and that Lindsay will be totally exonerated," Heller said of the New York incident.

The New York case comes a little more than a week before the actress is scheduled to appear at a probation violation hearing on January 15 in California.

    Ms. Lohan's problems are of her own making have nothing to do with "news" and do not effect anyone other than herself and perhaps her dimishing number of admirers and hanger-ons. There are thousands of individuals who have fallen from grace and her story of too much too soon is not unique. Getting into a scuffle in a club is certainly not earth shaking news/gossip!

    I firmly second that @ PT. I believe Cnn is trying to tell it's bloggers something... Dull minds get dull stories! My take on how Cnn views its readers.

    What is the law and who designed it anyway? for on the law side its a way to inforce upon others what to do and how to do it, and for others outlaws like Lindsay the law is just an irritable obstical, I suggest she join the KKK or move to France. Either way no one likes the law, the law is nothing more then a representation of a regime, cheers.

    Any loving father makes rules for his children to go by. Of course the children of another father don't obey his rules.

    I like remind my brothers and sisters that the 10 commandments will always reign supreme to any man written laws, is ipso facto . No man made laws will ever be above the realm of Jesus and no man made laws will ever be fare to another man.

    Talent? Are you freaking kidding me! She has a talent for getting in trouble but nothing much else in the last several years. Im thinking real jail time might be the only thing to set her straight.

    She needs a dose of the "Scared Straight" treatment. Lock her spoiled little self up in general population for a month and se if she doesn't change her atti tude.
