Lindsay Lohan is off the hook in one of her recent run-ins with the law.
The actress won't face criminal charges after beingoutside a New York City nightclub, one of a string of troubles the actress has encountered behind the wheel and elsewhere in the last few months.
Lohan, 26, had been due to make her first court appearance in the case Tuesday, but the Manhattan district attorney's office said Monday there is now no court date scheduled at any point.
Prosecutors wouldn't elaborate on their decision not to move forward on the allegations about the Sept. 21 episode, which was captured on surveillance video. Lohan's spokesman had called the claims false.
"As we said from the beginning, this is a big nothing," the spokesman, Steve Honig, said Monday.
The "Mean Girls" and "Freaky Friday" actress was arrested on a charge of leaving an accident scene after restaurant worker Jose Rodriguez said her Porsche hit him and hurt his knee as she turned from a Manhattan street into an alley by the Dream Hotel. Police said no alcohol was involved. Rodriguez, 34, was walking by after leaving his job at another hotel nearby.
Lohan was released with an appearance ticket. Rodriguez called emergency services and was taken to a hospital.
Police released grainy surveillance footage that shows Lohan's car turning as Rodriguez passed in front of it. Blurring to conceal witnesses' faces partially obscures the scene, and it's not clear exactly what happens as he is in front of the car. The video does show him staying on his feet and walking after the car as it continues into the alley.
The encounter came with Lohan on informal probation for taking a necklace last year without permission from a jewelry store in Venice, Calif.; she spent 35 days on house arrest in that case. The Los Angeles city attorney's office said Monday the Manhattan car episode wouldn't affect Lohan's probation.
The actress' latest project, "Liz & Dick," is. She plays Elizabeth Taylor in the biopic, which chronicles the tumultuous romance of Taylor and Richard Burton.
Lohan - whose earlier problems with cocaine, alcohol and driving landed her in a Los Angeles-area jail for about two weeks in 2010 - has had some other brushes with the law recently. In May, she was cleared of allegations that she hit a Hollywood nightclub manager with her car. The next month, she and her assistantthat sent both to a hospital; neither was seriously hurt.
About a week after the episode near the Dream Hotel, Lohan told authorities a manin an argument over cellphone photos. The man was initially arrested, but the arrest was voided hours later when the charge could not be substantiated, law enforcement officials said.
Earlier this month, policeto Lohan's childhood home in the New York suburbs after getting a report that she and her mother, Dina Lohan, were fighting. Investigators found nothing criminal happened, Nassau County police said.
