Lindsay Lohan

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 ...

If this weren't so sad, it'd be laughable. She NEEDS JAIL TIME for 6-12 months. HELLO - when are you morons going to wake up??????????

Alternative to jail is a mental hospital.

As expected, Dina Lohan is frantically giving hand jobs to everyone in the police station. It's the Lohan family way.

This is the crime that will finally send her to prison for a long time. 2 probation violations in 6 months is a pretty big deal, no matter what state you live in. She stayed in NYC because she didn't want to get arrested when she deplaned in CA. So what does she do? Gets arrested in NYC.

Sounds like this sort of thing will continue to happen as lomg as continues to hang out in clubs. there is little chance she will learn to control her temper.
A shame others don't realize that LL's "space" includes everyone's space too.

She is so annoying, like a kid annoying a mother while on the phone. GROW UP, get a life! The world does NOT revolve around you, you little brat!

JAIL TIME FOR 1 YEAR, you dopey prosecutors! She won't learn unless it's off to jail and mental institution for 1 year!

Susan is too busy trying to arrange bail and on the phone with SCH to get the best lawyer in New York State.
What country do you think she'll run to?

And you can't wear hair extensions in jail. I'm curious as to what she will look like without her wig (because that's what hair extensions really are)

The "Liz & Dick" star recently told Us Weekly that she wants to be known as an actress and not a troubled starlet, claiming she's ready for a comeback: "People can think what they want, and the only thing I can do is prove them wrong,"she said.
