Lindsay Lohan charged with NYC assault and crash
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.

Read on to learn more about Lindsay Lohan and the people she has had run-ins with
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.
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.
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 still cannot get over getting this thing to play liz taylor
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.
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
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.
