The Los Angeles County District Attorney has reportedly thrown out the case due to insufficient evidence, the Daily Mail reported.The news comes just hours after allegations emerged that Lohan had claimed Suge Knight’s son Andrew had set her up.
According to TMZ.com, the District Attorney’s charge evaluation sheet states Lohan’s friend Sam Magid who owns the home that was burglarised did not identify the actress as a suspect.The website also alleges that the potential eyewitnesses refused to become involved, so the lack of evidence resulted in the case being rejected.
It was earlier reported that Lohan allegedly told friends that Knight was responsible and she was being set up for the theft, which saw designer sunglasses, watches and Tiffancy cutlery go missing from an all-night house party.Earlier it was believed that police had formally named Lohan herself, along with her assistant Gavin Doyle, as suspects - although they are both reportedly no longer facing prosecution.
Lohan posted the story to her Twitter page in a bid to inform her four million plus followers of her innocence.
