Lindsay Lohan Arrested in New York for Leaving Scene of Accident
According to sources for TMZ, the troubled starlet, 26, hit the knee of a thirtysomething male as she was pulling into her hotel downtown. Someone inside Lohan’s vehicle got out to assess the damages, before everyone went inside. Lohan was later arrested as she was leaving the hotel, at around 2:30AM.
She was released from jail with a desk appearance ticket.
The victim of the incident was reportedly taken the hospital, though visible injuries were not found. Alcohol was not involved, according to TMZ.
Lohan — who was released from formal probation on March 29 after a series of DUI arrests — remains on informal probation for a case in which she was accused of stealing a necklace from a Los Angeles-area jeweler. No word on how Lohan’s latest arrested could affect her probation.
Celebuzz reached out to a rep for Lohan, who had no comment on the story.
