HOLLYWOOD—Actress Lindsay Lohan continues to make headlines as she will not be prosecuted for the jewelry theft she was announced as a suspect for. However, she has been banned from the Chateau Marmont Hotel.

Prosecutors determined on Tuesday, August 28, that Lohan would not be prosecuted for the burglary that took place in Sam Magid's Hollywood Hills home. The decision was announced after
Los Angeles police detectives presented a potential felony burglary against the actress and two men after several of Magid's expensive jewelry went missing on Saturday, August 18. The theft was reported after Magid had a party in his home in which Lohan, along with her two male guests, attended.

Soon after Magid made the report of his missing items, he retracted his statement in order to end the police investigation. Police officials, however, decided to proceed with the investigation with Lohan and her assistant, Gavin Doyle, as suspects. The LAPD believed that there was sufficient evidence and eyewitnesses that could pinpoint Lohan as one of the people involved in the theft.

A prosecutor wrote in a memo rejecting the theft charges claiming
"we do not have sufficient evidence to prove this case beyond a reasonable doubt."

The actress' spokesman, Steve Honig, released a statement indicating "Lindsay is glad this matter has been cleared up so she can focus on her upcoming projects. It is unfortunate that many media outlets were quick to point fingers and jump to conclusions without having all the facts."

Recent reports have also indicated that Lohan received a letter from General Manager of the Chateau Marmont Hotel, Phillip Pavel, stating she is banned from the premises because she has yet to pay her $46,350.04 fine. Pavel claims that the popular
Los Angeles hotel repeatedly requested Lohan to make the payment for the 47 days she stayed there during June and July of this year. 

"As we have made repeated attempts to resolve this pressing matter over the last few weeks without any resolution, I regret to inform you that we will no longer be able to extend any further credit for you to remain in the hotel," wrote Pavel in the letter addressed to Lohan.

The letter was dated for July 31 and she was ordered to pack her things and leave the hotel by
12 p.m. on August 1. 

"It appears that a private correspondence between Chateau Marmont's general manager and Miss Lohan was leaked by a member of her entourage," the hotel said in a statement on Wednesday, August 29. "We are as horrified, disappointed and troubled by this occurrence as Miss Lohan surely is. Obviously, this is a private matter between one of our guests and the hotel and we will continue to treat it as such."
