Lindsay Lohan arrest: Assistant Gavin Doyle says star needs help

lindsay-lohan-gavin-doyle-arrest-mugshot-assault-punch-tiffany-mitchell-pics-criminal-charges.jpgFollowing Lindsay Lohan's arrest for an alleged assault early Thursday (Nov. 29) morning in New York, her assistant, Gavin Doyle, is speaking out about the incident on Twitter, urging the "Liz & Dick" actress to get help.

"@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," he writes, later adding, "Life is NOT a movie it's a reality that needs to be faced."

Lohan was arrested for allegedly punching Tiffany Mitchell, a well-known psychic, in the face at Avenue and is now facing third-degree assault charges. According to TMZ, Lohan reportedly called Mitchell a "f***ing Gypsy," which Mitchell's husband calls "a racist comment." A friend of Mitchell's then lost it, calling Lohan a "whore" and telling her "'Liz & Dick' sucked." Lohan then allegedly decked Mitchell.

After Lohan was released from jail early Thursday morning, she was whisked away in a waiting car -- but not before angrily kicking her assistant to the curb, literally.

In the video below, Doyle can be heard saying, "No, I didn't!"

"Gavin, get out of the car!" Lohan shouts. "Get him out of the car. Get him out of the car now!"

"Never speak to me again," Doyle says after exiting the vehicle.


Another fun fact about Doyle: He's the one who almost took the rap for Lohan's accident on the Pacific Coast Highway in June. She told police that Doyle was the one behind the wheel when her Porsche crashed into a truck -- but, of course, she was the one actually driving. Lohan was formally charged Thursday with allegedly lying to police in connection with the accident.
