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 ...

Check it out....a woman was arrested in Modesto, CA and charged with a felony for stealing a pair of shoes from Payless Shoe source. HOW does LiLo assault someone and get cited out while this poor broad from Columbia is charged with a felony???

Whatever happened to just being in your twenties and having fun? I don't consider picking a fight as fun. It's plain stupid, especially when you are already on probation. Anyone lucky enough to have had her success early on should be taking advantage of their popularity by networking producers for paid acting roles not blowing their little bit of money left by repeating stupid mistakes like drug abuse and legal problems.

Fights happen in bars across the country every night and rarely is anyone arrested. I think the charges will be dropped and that this lady probably was the aggressor. I've been in about a dozen bar fights and never had anyone call the cops.

wowzers @ how many comments.

Gavin missed his cue to steal this lady's coat after Lindsay starts the ruckus. These two together are like 2 weirdos in the night. If I was walking down the street and saw Lindsay and Gavin coming my way I'd cross the street. These two are losers. Scary

To be honest, I don't have a problem with people who party on Wednesday night (technically Thursday morning but whatever) because everyone's week ends differently. I have the problem with Linsday saying she doesn't drink but drinking, she doesn't party, but partying, wasn't driving and was driving, partying with your mother, then calling your dad saying she's on cocaine (Thanks Michael, that tape was pretty sweet!)then lying about it on tv no less, or picking fights while on probation because she possibly a star and 'needs her space'. Space isn't too well known in NY clubs, thats the worst place to throw that type of fit. Hopefully after Liz and Dick debacle, people will stop comparing her acting skills to Robert Downey Jr. Lindsay doesn't have those types of acting chops and never will. She just needs to go away for a while because she's basic tabloid fodder at this point.

At least with a real train wreck, it happens and it's over. This wreck just keeps going and going like the energizer bunny. Lindsay really you have had every chance to get it together, people have tried to give you every break, and every time you do something that proves that you don't deserve any more chances. So many people would have done so much better and done so much good if they had had all that has been handed to you on a silver platter. You are now a disgusting reminder of how some people don't deserve what they have.
Funny, I used to like you. Now you are like watching someone beat their head against the wall. It was interesting, now it's just old.

What an idiot!!! What person with any tact whatsoever hits someone in anger? Or hits someone period? She's 26 years old and will be (hopefully) out of our lives forever by this time next year. Penniless and jobless. I can't believe anyone actually believed that Liz n Dick would be good or that she could stop fame whoring for more than 3 consecutive days. Who goes out to the club on a weeknight until 4 AM unless they want trouble? Her number of arrests has now passed her IQ.
