The Wanted Not Likely To Help Lindsay Lohan During Hearing Over New York City Arrest

They don't know anything...
Radar Online reports that The Wanter's manager Scooter Braun told New York police that singer Max George doesn't know anything about Lindsay Lohan's arrest. Lohan was arrested for punching Florida psychic Tiffany Mitchell at the Avenue nightclub in Chelsea on November 29. Max was said to have been involved.
A source said: "Seeing that Max wasn't involved in the fracas at all, Scooter doesn't want him to get involved in any of the legal hearings. Max just found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time and he barely knows Lindsay, so he has no reason to stick up for her. As their manager, Scooter believes they should just walk away from the situation and it's unnecessary to poke their noses in. For him, this is a matter between Lindsay and Tiffany. He doesn't want The Wanted's name being muddied by this, so he told the local authorities they didn't see anything."
Of course, if the case goes to criminal court and prosecutors believe that George has information crucial to the case, he'll have to cooperate.
Lohan showed up at The Wanted's Q102 Jingle Ball concert in Philadelphia on Wednesday night. The incident in New York happened after the band opened for Justin Bieber at Madison Square Garden.
The Wanted's Jay McGuinness said: "It's a bit of a blur actually, but some sort of scuffle with a fortune teller. It was very odd. We actually carried on partying after that. It was reported that [the fight] was about Max, but I don't think it actually was. But [Lohan] was a total sweetheart on the night, so our experience is quite positive."
