Updates on Lindsay Lohan Battery Allegation

Hotel worker: 'I saw Lindsay in that fight'

A man who worked at the Standard Hotel the night Lindsay Lohan allegedly attacked a woman claims he saw Lindsay there, and even broke up the fight.

TMZ broke the story ... Marisa Dugas went to the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. and filed an incident report, claiming she was at Smoke and Mirrors inside The Standard Thursday night when she approached Lindsay's table and started talking to a guy, and Lindsay allegedly pushed and shoved her. Lindsay insists she was at home the entire evening.

The man who worked that night tells TMZ ... he saw Lindsay in Smoke and Mirrors sitting with a group of people. He says Marisa sat down near them and began speaking with one of the guys. The man says people in the group started throwing ice at her. Marisa got upset and a scuffle erupted. He says Lindsay was part of the scuffle and he broke it up.

The guy says the woman was escorted out of the club, where she cried hysterically and then said Lindsay hurt her, but she refused medical attention.

There are no pictures that have surfaced of Lindsay at the Standard Thursday night, but the man says there is a surveillance video showing the back of the hotel, where Lindsay pulled in and later left. We have confirmed the man has spoken with cops, although we do not know how much detail he divulged.

Sources tell us the L.A. County Sheriff's Department has already requested the surveillance tape three times from the hotel -- but hotel management is refusing to give it up. It's unclear why.

Detectives are still investigating the alleged incident.


Accuser's Lawyer blasts Lindsay on TV: 'Once a liar, always a liar'

The lawyer for Lindsay Lohan's latest accuser just went off on live television -- claiming the actress has proven time and time again ... she spews nothing but lies ... and her "I was at home" excuse is no exception.

Mark Haushalter -- the lawyer for Lindsay's assault-accuser Marisa Dugas -- appeared on Good Day L.A. this morning, blasting Lindsay's alibi that she couldn't have attacked his client at The Standard Hotel last weekend ... because she was at home watching TV.

Mark said, "Let's not forget Lindsay Lohan has a drug addiction problem, a drinking problem, and has been convicted of crimes of dishonesty."

According to Mark, Lindsay's excuse counts for jack squat -- because "Once a liar, always a liar."
