Actress Lindsay Lohan has been arrested after she hit a woman during an argument at a New York nightclub.
The Mean Girls and Freaky Friday star was arrested in the early hours of Thursday morning and has been charged with third-degree assault.
She allegedly got into the spat with another woman at Club Avenue, in Manhattan’s Chelsea area. She struck the woman in face with her hand, police said. The victim did not require medical attention.
Her publicist did not immediately 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”.
The actress was also involved in a car accident in California this summer that sent her and an assistant to a hospital, but did not result in serious injuries for anyone. The accident remains under investigation.
In May, she was cleared of allegations that she struck a Hollywood nightclub manager with her car.
Lohan remains on informal probation for taking a necklace from a jewellery store without permission last year. Under its terms she does not have to check in with a judge or probation officer but could face a prison term if arrested again.
Her latest film, Liz & Dick, in which she portrays screen icon Elizabeth Taylor, premiered on Sunday.
