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 ...

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.

Honestly i used to support her through all her troubles but at this point being on probation and out in a club at 4am on top of that punching another person. When your on probation your basically in jail walking around. You cant be near or around other felons just doing that you are in Violation. If you are near a crime is being committed violated too. Those are just some of the criteria for violation. Just stay home drink there and watch alot of movies and um maybe brush up on your acting...You girl are going to jail for over a year. Maybe when you come out you can do a movie on how you fared in jail that ill watch.

People that go out and party on a Wednesday night and party until 4 am have a serious drinking problem, I bet Shawn Holley is shaking her head and I believe Micheal now when he says she has a lot of problems. Her friends that she goes out with are not her friends for letting her go out and encouraging it. She really needs to go to jail and the judge really needs to haul her but back in court like today.,.

Why isn't this piece of trash behind bars for an extended time yet? Constantly in trouble and violates probation more than once. Any normal person would be in jail beyond her 30 day stay.

And....lets see how her enablers justify this.

OK "fans", the ones that told me (Nicole, Susan, etc.) constantly that she was sober, even though she was going to nightclubs. That because she did her community service and therapy ON A SCHEDULE HANDED OUT TO HER AFTER MULTIPLE CHANCES, that after her probation was over and she would be "free" from probation, ALL she would have to do is follow all laws.

Fans of Lindsay.....I hate to tell you, but this is OBVIOUSLY happening yet again (multiple arrests, etc.) because SHE HAS A DRUG/ALCOHOL problem. She shouldn't have a problem FOLLOWING ALL LAWS if she were sober. She crashed into the back of a semi for goodness sake WITH pills in her car (which we all know were adderall) and refused a breathalyzer (which is legal, but why lie about who was driving? And, go to so much length to cover it up? Offering the driver of the truck a bribe for instance and switching seats?). She's hit multiple pedestrians, and yes, it didn't turn into a civil or criminal claim but it's obvious she's NOT clearly watching where she's going. All of these are signs of drug and alcohol abuse.

If she was SO serious about her sobriety, why not continue going to therapy? Or, at least go to a meeting?

Please do not get me wrong, IMO, addiction IS a disease and you need to treat it like any other. I also believe Lindsay is dual diagnosis (as am I), which is hard to treat if you DON'T want help or won't get help.

I got into multiple car accidents, ran out of money, and caused all kinds of drama too when I was using. Then, even when I WASN'T using, I still caused drama bc even though my addiction was being treated, my Depression wasn't.

So, to all you "fans" out there, you're NEVER going to get the Lindsay you once knew and loved back (and back into good movies) until she gets properly treated. Whoever the judge was that sent her to rehab and then straight to UCLA had the right idea.

But, unless she has SERIOUS consequences handed right down to her (aka Sautner), she goes right back to this type of lifestyle on her own. So, if you have ANY doubts left that she's drinking and using drugs (and yes, I know alcohol is legal--but it's one of the most dangerous temptations for an addict BECAUSE it's legal. Sure, she can legally drink, but it only fuels drama like this and feeds her need for substances). She's trying to "treat" herself with coke, adderall, alcohol and whoelse knows what.

Hello 2007.....we're back right where we were.
