NEW YORK, N.Y. - Actress Lindsay Lohan was arrested Thursday in New York City after police said she hit a woman during an argument, then hours later was charged in California for a June crash in which her Porsche slammed into a dump truck.

The "Mean Girls" and "Freaky Friday" star was arrested at 4 a.m. and charged with third-degree assault.

She left a police precinct nearly four hours later with a black jacket pulled over her head. She was wearing leggings, a green mini dress and high-heels, and drove off in a black SUV with a driver, a woman and another man who was seen going in and out of the precinct.

She allegedly got into the spat with another woman at Club Avenue, in Manhattan's Chelsea section. She struck the woman in the face with her hand, police said. The woman did not require medical attention.

Lohan's publicist did not immediately return a call for comment.

The arrest is Lohan's latest brush with law enforcement in New York City.

She was involved in a NYPD investigation in September after alleging a man had assaulted her in a New York hotel, but charges against the man were later dropped.

Also in September, the actress was accused of clipping a man with her car outside another Manhattan nightclub, but prosecutors chose not to move ahead with charges.

In October, police were called to her childhood home on Long Island after a report of a fight between her and her mother. An investigation revealed "no criminality."

Santa Monica Sgt. Richard Lewis said the California charges were filed Thursday morning, but he declined to release more details until a formal press release could be issued. Court officials could not immediately confirm the charges.

The filing comes nearly six months after the actress crashed while on her way to a movie set. She was taken to the hospital but returned to the set of the film "Liz and Dick" hours later.

Lohan's attorney did not return messages seeking comment.

The California case could trigger a probation violation for Lohan, who remains on informal probation in the state for a necklace theft.

In May, she was cleared of allegations that she struck a Hollywood nightclub manager with her car.

"Liz & Dick," in which she portrays screen icon Elizabeth Taylor, premiered on Lifetime on Sunday.

Lohan also recently filmed "The Canyons," an indie film written by "Less Than Zero" and "American Psycho" author Bret Easton Ellis.

you know u people..she has been given more opportunities than a lot of other people...yet u blame it on bad childhood, bad this, bad that...she's just a plain awful person... She takes advantage of the good things that people do for her...and she continues to do so because she knows she will get away with it...and with support from idiots who think she's such a wonderful person...she is not...elizabeth taylor was not like her at all...she had class..something LiLo lacks dearly.

I think is a slap in the face to Elizabeth Taylor to let this train wreck portray her!!!  So disrespectful!!

To those dissing Lindsay for portraying Miss Elizabeth Taylor before You say anything it might be an idea to do a little history,,Their lives are quite parallel, I truly hope Lindsay pulls out of Her destructive path the way Elizabeth did when She was older, When She was young Elizabeth led the same life Lindsay is right now,Both started as children and were engulfed by hollywood.
Miss Elizabeth survived, I truly hope Lindsay does and goes on to do the same type of wonderful things Miss Elizabeth did in Her later years(aids research-charity-etc)

Wow!! did Lindsay Lohan run over your dog or something Emma Jones. I get that the girl is on a professional spiral, but this article is some serious hate for a person that I'm sure you've never even met.

Nov 25, 2012 9:06AM

Even though she's a troubled person and she obviously isn't liked - and I'm not standing up for things that she did do, but I think this article is going way too far and sounds more like ranting and dare I say cyberbullying then a proper article. "do you think they'll dare put her drag face and smoker's pout on Blu-ray"? Seriously? That one was just unnecessary and went too far.

L. Lohan  Is An Absolute Disgrace to The Legendary Actress --Liz Taylor ! " Parallel"  Lives Or Not --Lohan Does not belong in the Same Sentence As Miss Taylor --Let Alone Portraying her In a Movie --

Terrible Dicision on the Part of the Directors / Producers  to have Lohan Even read the Script for this Movie !!

I can't believe you people, how dare you call someone, anyone A thing or she's a disgrace.... like you are all so perfect. you should all look in the mirror and take a long hard look, because for most of you that mirror would break... this is cyberbullying and I just hope if any of you have children that don't grow up to be as mean as their parents because this is where they learn it at home. just think about what you are doing, just think if this was your child everyone was degrading.... EVERYONE DESERVES TO HAVE A HAPPY LIFE you should all be ashamed of yourselves....

i still cannot get over getting this thing to play liz taylor

Get a life people....who cares anyways!
Nov 25, 2012 9:16AM
Ok, is it me or her face looks more and more different as the days go on ???   Regarding her playing Elizabeth Taylor, we will have to see, however, I wouldn't have picked Lindsay to play her.
what they could not fin****od good actress to play the part of liz taylor they pick this thing

 You just can't disassociate her "acting talent" and her real life escapades. As hard as I try to focus on the acting, I keep thinking of her jail time, her lesbian relationship, her car accidents, stealing jewellery,etc... If she could just get herself on track for a week or so... maybe just maybe we could say " yeah, what a performance!"...

Liz Taylor was a really beautiful woman...Lindsay Lohan is not so great looking and her wild ways have aged her so much.

Hohan is never a good choice. Waaaaaay too many second chances for someone who just won't learn that she has been granted a gift of a second chance to improve her life. Doesn't get it Won't ever get.

Bad press stories like this is the problem, sure kick her while she`s down. Why not try and build someone up and remember the good things. Your always tearing people apart. What is wrong with you guys (AKA PRESS). Its always negative, its always a beating, its always something bad. Never anything good. She is a human being, and she is going thru a rough time, and people like you and your biting stories don't help the matter. How would you like it if people wrote crap about you constantly and put it in the news, how would you feel....Try some love and kindness for once.And just for the sake of conversation I am not even a fan of hers but I am so sick of all the hate in the press towards people. Your always making fun of and kicking people when they are down, You ALL should be ashamed of yourselves.

You have to remember Liz Taylor.....husband stealer, multiple marriges and all round bad girl.....LiLo is perfect in the role in Liz and Dick.

Liz was NOT an Angel

the writer's negative bias is too obvious -- easy to put criticize, isn't it?  Would have enjoyed a more honest reporting
Nov 25, 2012 6:53PM
...and when this girl dies of a drug overdose, all you people will say, "Oh, such a tragedy, she had so much potential."
Nov 25, 2012 2:25AM
I think they missed the biggest victim of lohan. Herself. She has been her own biggest victim. I wish she would do us all a favor and go the way of so many failed spoiled so called "actresses" before her... R.I.P.

Here you have a beautiful young girl that took a complete nose dive and is now doing her best to get back on top again and here comes a bunch of bottom, feeding b*tches trying to keep her down. Same on the lot of you, Lindsay Lohan will rise again; when she does don't expect her to forgive and forget.

Nov 25, 2012 3:06PM
I read all the downer stuff on LiLo...sounds pretty terrible.  But there's still something about her I like....
