Lindsay Lohan was ARRESTED at 4 AM Thursday in New York City for allegedly punching a woman at a New York City nightclub ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Our sources say Lohan was at Club Avenue when she got into some sort of argument with a female patron and it became physical.  We're told cops came and arrested Lindsay for allegedly assaulting her.

Law enforcement tells us prior to the fight words were exchanged between Lindsay and the woman as they sat in separate booths near each other.  Lindsay said something to the effect of, "Give me my space."  Some time passed and then, for some reason, Lindsay allegedly punched the girl in the left side of her face.

We're told by the time cops arrived Lindsay had left the club and was a passenger in a car that was leaving the area.  Cops intercepted the car and made the arrest.

While Lohan was in cuffs, she kept repeating, "Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me?"

Lindsay was booked for 3rd degree misdemeanor assault, given a desk appearance ticket (meaning she must show up in court in the near future) and released several hours after she was taken into custody.  Law enforcement says she was "visibly tired" at the station.

We're told investigators went back to the club looking for security footage of the alleged altercation.

And this isn't Lindsay's only legal problem.  TMZ broke the story ... she is about to be charged with lying to cops in June after her car accident on Pacific Coast Highway.  She told them she was a passenger in the Porsche when actually she was driving.

And, if Lindsay is formally charged with the latest crime, it could trigger yet another probation violation.

Story developing ...

How she is not COMPLETELY embarrassed by all of her menacing just floors me. If I were her, I would have crawled under a rock the day after the jewelry heist. I honestly don't think I could come back from something like that, nor do I think she did.

Any bet takers on her entering some type of rehab or other facility in the coming days at the advice of her lawyer - in order to try and give a good impression to the courts?

And I know I'm not the only one rooting that it WON'T work and she'll FINALLY be given some actual jail time.

Lindsay, sweetie, you have to learn a technique vital for all parolees: WALK.AWAY.
Have a little dignity and self-respect. I don't doubt some people are "out to get you", as you so often say. Maybe even this girl started **** with you. Maybe she DARED insult your award-winning performance in Liz&Dick (*snort*). But she is a "nobody". YOU are the one who has to WAAAAAAAAAAALK AAAAAAAAAAWAAAAAAAAAAY, cause you have the most to lose.

The NYPD arrested actress Lindsay Lohan at a nightclub in Manhattan after she punched another female patron early Thursday morning, according to police.

Lohan allegedly struck the woman in the face with her hand at about 4 a.m. at Club Avenue on 10th Ave. after words were exchanged, sources tell Fox 5 News.

Lohan told the woman "give me my space" as she sat in a booth. A short time later fists started to fly, sources said.

The woman had visible bruising on her face. Alcohol did not appear to be a factor.

The victim did not require medical attention.

Lohan is facing a misdemeanor assault charge.

Her publicist did not immediately return a call for comment to the Associated Press.

The actress- wearing a black coat over her head- was escorted out of the precinct at about 7:30 a.m.

The incident is the latest in a long string of run-ins with the law for the Long Island native.

On September 21, Lohan, 26, was arrested on a charge of leaving an accident scene after a restaurant worker said her Porsche hit him and hurt his knee as she turned from a Manhattan street into an alley by the Dream Hotel. Police said no alcohol was involved.

Lohan was released with an appearance ticket.

Prosecutors decided not to move forward on the allegations about the incident.

About a week after the episode near the Dream Hotel, Lohan told authorities a man grabbed her in a New York hotel room in an argument over cellphone photos. The man was initially arrested, but the arrest was voided hours later when the charge could not be substantiated, law enforcement officials said.

Last month, police were called to Lohan's childhood home in the New York suburbs after getting a report that she and her mother were fighting. Investigators found nothing criminal happened, Nassau County police said.

The 'Liz and Dick' actress is on informal probation for taking a necklace last year without permission from a jewelry store in Venice, Calif.; she spent 35 days on house arrest in that case.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
