Lindsay Lohan was reportedly assaulted in her room at the W Hotel in Manhattan early Sunday morning.
A police source tells local NBC 4 News Lindsay Lohan, 26, was involved in an argument with a 25-year-old man she met at a nightclub before bringing him back to her room, where a group of friends was present.
An argument between the pair is believed to have stemmed over photos the man took of the actress on his mobile phone while at the W Hotel in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village.
According to NBCNewYork.com, Lindsay Lohan met the unnamed male at Manhattan’s popular 1OAK nightclub in the city’s Chelsea neighborhood.
She is said to have later taken the man to her room on the 15th floor of the nearby W Hotel.
Police sources tell the website “Lohan took the man’s cell phone from him and then he punched her” after the alleged photo incident.
The actress “also told detectives he choked her”, according to the website.
Lindsay Lohan is said to have pulled the fire alarm at the hotel and fled from her room following the scuffle.
The male, who has yet to be identified, was being held at Manhattan’s 13th precinct awaiting charges at press time, NBC reports.
The alleged incident comes less than a week after Lindsay Lohan was rushed to hospital after suffering from a bad lung infection.
According to TMZ, Lindsay Lohan had suffered with a case of “walking pneumonia” but her condition apparently deteriorated, causing her to seek medical attention.
The actress was reportedly taken to the emergency room at Mount Sinai Hospital where she received treatment, including antibiotics.
She was discharged shortly afterwards and is said to be recovering.
