Lindsay Lohan has been arrested after allegedly punching blonde psychic Tiffany Eve Mitchell at New York’s Avenue nightclub in the early hours of Thursday morning.
Lindsay Lohan, 26, was celebrity club Avenue in Manhattan’s trendy Meatpacking district, where she is believed to have punched Tiffany Eve Mitchell, 28, leaving her face bruised and swollen.
This morning, Lindsay Lohan – still clad in her tight green minidress and black heels from her night out – left a Manhattan police station with a jacket over her head, while Tiffany Eve Mitchell, her husband and a friend were also seen leaving another precinct.
And her day has just got worse as it has been revealed the actress will today face four different charges on different coasts.
Tiffany Eve Mitchell comes from Palm Beach, Florida, where she owns Palm Beach Psychic Visions. Before that, she owned another psychic business and is believed to have only recently moved to New York.
She reads palms and tarot cards and according to the Palm Beach Daily News, she goes by the name “Ava”.
A police source told the New York Post that Tiffany Eve Mitchell and Lindsay Lohan were sitting in separate VIP sections when a fight broke out nearby and both women stood up to watch.
Tiffany Eve Mitchell and Lindsay Lohan bumped into each other and words were exchanged with onlookers claiming that Lohan said: “Give me my space”, but both returned to their seats.
Then Lindsay Lohan allegedly got back up and punched Tiffany Eve Mitchell in the face.
Police sources said Tiffany Eve Mitchell claimed the actress knocked her to the ground with a strong blow to the left side of her face, with sources saying Mitchell “suffered swelling and substantial pain to the face”, but refused medical attention.
Police were called, and Tiffany Eve Mitchell identified Lindsay Lohan as her attacker.
Lindsay Lohan had already left the venue but police later intercepted a car in which she was passenger and made the arrest.
As she was led away in handcuffs, the star is believed to have yelled: “Oh my God! I didn’t touch anyone!”
She kept repeating: “Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me?”
Lindsay Lohan was later taken to the 10th Precinct Station House in Manhattan, where she was accused of misdemeanor assault.
She received a desk appearance ticket and will have to appear in court on January 11. She was described as being “visibly tired”.
Lindsay Lohan and a large group left several hours later around 7:30 a.m. with her head covered by a dark coat as they walked to a waiting car, as the actress was heard yelling at someone “get out of the car Gavin, get of the car now” several times.
“It’s become a pastime to use her name and fame and blame things on her,” said Gavin Doyle, a Lindsay Lohan assistant.
Earlier this morning, Tiffany Eve Mitchell, her friend and a man, believed to be her husband, left another police station in Manhattan.
While the women didn’t speak, the man said: “Lindsay Lohan got drunk and went crazy…hit my wife.”
Avenue nightclub does not even bear a sign at its front door.
The club boasts patrons including Rihanna and her on-off beau Chris Brown, who were seen at the nightspot together in July.
It is also where Katy Perry and ex-husband Russell Brand shared a kiss after meeting at the MTV music awards in September 2009.
Demi Moore and her ex-husband Ashton Kutcher have also partied there, while Fergie and will.i.am from the Black Eye Peas have DJd there.
It is owned by millionaire Noah Tepperberg, the ringmaster of a string of New York nightclubs including Marquee, as well as Lavo in Las Vegas.
It was the second time this week that Lindsay Lohan went to the club. She was spotted there on Tuesday night, as was Jennifer Lopez and Justin Timberlake.
The club is a small venue which offers mostly expensive bottle service. A drink alone is between $15 and $20 each. There is a small club downstairs and a more intimate lounge upstairs.
While champagne is carried out by stunning waitresses holding the bottles high through the air, with sparklers attached.
