Paula Abdul filed assault charges with Hollywood police on Tuesday against a man who allegedly slammed her into a wall, the Associated Press reports.

The American Idol judge told police she was at a private party at about 1 a.m. on April 2 when a man she was arguing with grabbed her arm and threw her against a wall, according to a police spokesman.

"(Abdul) said she had sustained a concussion and spinal injuries," the spokesman said.

Abdul reportedly saw her doctor following the incident and said that she would make herself available for photographs of her injuries, Reuters reports.

According to the AP, Abdul, 43, gave police the man's name, but no arrests have been made.

A rep for Abdul had no comment.

Abdul, who recently renewed her Idol contract for three more years, showed no signs of distress on this week's two episodes.
