(NEW YORK) — False alarm: apparently, Lindsay Lohan and her mom are OK. The 26-year-old actress was spotted hugging her mother Wednesday outside her childhood home following a dispute late Tuesday night/early Wednesday morning in which police were called.
Nassau County police officers were called to the Merrick, N.Y., home where Lohan grew up Wednesday morning. Her mother, Dina Lohan, lives in the house with some of Lindsay’s siblings. An investigation revealed “no criminality.” Police did not release details on the subject of the argument.
Lohan’s publicist declined ABC News requests for comment. Messages left with Dina Lohan were not answered.
According to TMZ.com, the argument started around 4 a.m. at New York City’s Dream Downtown, the hotel where Lohan was accused of a hit-and-run last month. TMZ said Lohan wanted to “take her limo to her New York City hotel, but Dina wanted to take it to her home in Long Island, to avoid paying for a taxi.”
According to TMZ, during the tussle, Lindsay Lohan called her dad for help and said “She’s saying disgusting things to me.”
Dina Lohan recently made headlines with an incoherent appearance on Dr. Phil. Her daughter has defended her since that interview, calling her “amazing, beautiful, talented” and “so strong” on Twitter.
Lindsay Lohan was last involved in an NYPD investigation two weeks ago, when she claimed a man had assaulted her at the W Hotel in Union Square. Charges against the man were later dropped.
