(NEW YORK) — Tiffany Ava Mitchell, the Palm Beach palm reader who Lindsay Lohan allegedly punched during a brawl at the New York City nightclub Avenue early Thursday morning, is “aggravated,” “swollen” and doesn’t want to leave the house after her run-in with the 26-year-old actress.
“We don’t even want to leave the house at this moment,” Mitchell’s husband, Wayne Stevens, told ABC News through the intercom of his New York apartment on Thursday.
“She’s all swollen,” he said of his wife, who runs a chain of psychic reading salons in Florida. “Her cheek is swollen … She’s pretty aggravated”
Stevens said he couldn’t make sense of the fight that led to Lohan’s alleged swipe at his 28-year-old wife. “It kind of just escalated because someone else had a brawl,” he said. During the fight, he said Lohan, “went and pushed my wife pretty hard.”
“I don’t even know why she pushed her,” he said. “And we didn’t realize who it even was. Five minutes later, she comes around and tells my wife, ‘If I need space,’ and then she just punched her.”
Stevens said Mitchell does not plan to see a doctor. They were at New York’s 10th precinct Thursday morning, where she did not require medical attention.
Lohan was charged with misdemeanor third-degree assault Thursday morning. Later in the day, she was charged with three additional misdemeanors for lying to Santa Monica, Calif., police about a June car crash on the Pacific Coast Highway.
The charges revolve around whether Lohan was driving the Porsche that got mangled during the accident, or if she was in the passenger seat at the time of the crash. Lohan initially said she was a passenger; police found evidence she was the driver.
More importantly, the Santa Monica charges may be enough for a judge to revoke Lohan’s probation in connection with a conviction for stealing a $2,500 necklace in 2011.
Lohan’s publicist declined to comment, saying Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Holley, is fielding requests for comment. Holley did not respond to ABC News.
Before going to Avenue Wednesday night, Lohan was spotted at Justin Bieber’s concert at Madison Square Garden. A New York Times reporter who was at the show tweeted, “Lindsay Lohan just came to the row in front of me at the Bieber show, got swarmed, then turned and left.”
Lohan, a regular at Avenue, was banned from the club earlier this year following an incident in which she tweeted that Justin Timberlake was seeing another woman at the club when he was dating Jessica Biel.
While Lohan’s official camp has stayed silent about her arrest, her assistant, Gavin Doyle, called her out on Twitter Thursday. A video of Lohan leaving the precinct that’s posted on YouTube shows Doyle getting out of the car moments after Lohan gets in. Lohan screams, “Gavin, get out of the car! Get him out of the car! Get him out of the car, now!” As Doyle leaves, he says, “OK. Never speak to me again.”
Thursday afternoon, he tweeted, “@lindsaylohan after bailing you out last night I HOPE and PRAY you get the help you so desperately need. We are ALL rooting for you. xxx”
In another tweet, he wrote, “Life is NOT a movie it’s a reality that needs to be faced.”
Doyle was also with Lohan when she crashed her car on the Pacific Coast Highway in June.
It’s been a tough week for Lohan. Her latest attempt at a comeback, the Lifetime movie Liz & Dick, premiered Sunday to a not overwhelming audience of 3.5 million viewers. Critics almost universally panned the Elizabeth Taylor biopic.
She’s also had a spate of legal troubles this fall. In September, she was arrested outside New York’s Dream Downtown hotel when a pedestrian claimed she hit him with her car and did not stop. The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office declined to prosecute that case.
That same month, Lohan was involved in a hotel-room quarrel that began over a set of cellphone photos of her allegedly taken by a part time Congressional aide, Christian LaBella. Lohan claimed LaBella had assaulted her, which led to his arrest, but the misdemeanor charges against him were later dropped.
In October, police were called to her Lohan’s home on Long Island after a report of a fight between her and her mother. An investigation revealed “no criminality.”
So far, Lohan has been imprisoned six times, but has spent less than two weeks behind bars. Last year, she spent 35 days under house arrest after pleading no contest to stealing a $2,500 necklace. She remains on informal probation for that theft, which means she doesn’t have to check in with a judge or probation officer but could face a jail term if arrested.
In March, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner took Lohan off probation from her 2007 DUI case. In court, Sautner praised Lohan for doing, “everything that this court has asked of her,” including completing 60 days of community service and multiple psychological counseling sessions. She also offered some advice: “Stop the nightclubbing and focus on your work.”
