Lindsay Lohan arrest: Punched woman in face, cops say; Lohan unhurt

Actress Lindsay Lohan was arrested Thursday morning after police said she punched a woman in the face at a nightclub in New York.

Lohan, 26, was taken into custody on suspicion of third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, at Club Avenue in Manhattan’s fashionable meatpacking district.


Police said the incident happened inside the club and the troubled actress was sitting inside a black SUV when officers arrived and arrested her about 4 a.m.

Lohan was not injured and the alleged victim, whose injuries were not disclosed, refused medical treatment at the scene, officials said.


A call to Lohan’s publicist was not immediately returned.

The incident is just the latest in a string of run-ins with the law for the  actress.

Lohan had hoped to rekindle her derailed acting career with a turn as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s “Liz & Dick,” a made-for-TV movie chronicling Taylor’s tumultuous relationship with Richard Burton that premiered Sunday night.

The movie -- and particularly Lohan’s performance -- was widely mocked in the press.  Los Angeles Times TV reviewer Mary McNamara called it a “wildly graceless biopic” filled with more “petulance than passion.”
