Lindsay Lohan has left a New York City police precinct after being charged for allegedly striking a woman at a nightclub.
The actress left the station house shortly before 8 a.m. Thursday. She wore a black jacket over her head that went down to her knees. She was wearing leggings, a mini skirt and high-heels, and drove off in a black SUV with a driver and another man.
Police say Lohan was arrested at 4 a.m. and charged with third-degree assault. They say she got into the argument with another woman at Club Avenue in Manhattan and struck the woman in the face with her hand.
Her publicist didn’t immediately return a call for comment.
Lohan has had frequent brushes with law. 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 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 didn’t 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 jewelry store without permission last year. That means she doesn’t have to check in with a judge or probation officer but could face a jail term if arrested again.
Her latest film, 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.
