No way. It’s not possible, but it is. Lindsay Lohan. Arrested. Again!!! How many exclamation points does this warrant? At least she wasn’t driving.
The Liz & Dick star was taken into custody early Thursday after an alleged altercation at a NYC nightclub.
Det. Mark Nell of the NYPD told People magazine that a fight broke out around 4 a.m. at a place called Avenue, and Lohan was “charged with assault.”
Apparently Lohan punched the woman in the face. She’s since been released but given a court date.
The New York Daily News identifies the woman as Tiffany Eve Mitchell, of West Palm Beach. Gossip Extra has pegged Mitchell — who reportedly annoyed Lohan by taking pictures of her and getting up into her space in the VIP area — as a former psychic. She didn’t see the attack coming? At least Mitchell didn’t require medical attention.
Speaking of LiLo’s SoFla connections: Her friend Spanish artist Domingo Zapata will unveil his new murals Wednesday as part of the W South Beach Hotel permanent collection at a private event next week. If you recall, Zapata loaned his Porsche to Lohan the night she was arrested for hitting a pedestrian in NYC back in September (he originally bought it from RHOM dentist Karent Sierra). Lindsay was arrested on suspicion of leaving the scene of an accident, but prosecutors ultimately dropped the charges. Phew.
Not a good day for Linds. On Thursday, she was also charged with multiple misdemeanors for allegedly lying to police about a car accident that occurred in L.A. in June. Following the crash with a truck, she reportedly lied to the first responders and told them she hadn’t been driving. According to TMZ, the actress will face charges for giving false information to a police officer, obstructing or resisting a police officer in the performance of his duty, and reckless driving.
The California case could trigger a probation violation for Lohan, who remains on informal probation in the state for a necklace theft.
