Lawyer: LiLo not drinking; Dad says otherwise

  • Lindsay Lohan's lawyer insists that the actress was not under the influence during an alleged altercation in NYC
  • The star's father denies those claims: 'She's got to get into treatment immediately. The drinking is out of control'
Lindsay Lohan was arrested after an alleged altercation at a NYC nightclub.

Lindsay Lohan may have gotten arrested Thursday after getting into an alleged altercation at a NYC nightclub, but her lawyer insists she was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time.

The star's attorney, Mark Heller, tells E! News that her behavior was "appropriate." 

"She was certainly not intoxicated, certainly not under the influence of drugs," Heller added. "She was clear [and] lucid, her eyes were clear. No alcohol involvement whatsoever on this occasion."

Lohan's father, Michael Lohan, tells a different story. In an interview with "The Insider," he revealed that the "Liz & Dick" actress is heading down a dangerous and destructive path: "She's got to get into treatment immediately. The drinking is out of control, it's literally out of control."

He continued, "And if anybody wants to deny that they're out of their minds. But I'm not going to be held accountable if this poor kid suffers any kind of demise or ... I don't even want to go there."

TMZ also reports a similar story saying Lohan has been turning to alcohol because she is stressed about her financial situation and legal troubles. Lohan has been to rehab four times since 2007.

Lindsay will face formal charges at an arraignment in January regarding the NYC altercation.
