Lindsay Lohan arrested
Just days after calling out fellow former child star Amanda Bynes for her legal woes, Lindsay Lohan has been arrested ... again!
The 26-year-old “Liz and Dick” star’s latest brush with the law took place early Wednesday morning in New York City, a spokesperson for the NYPD confirmed. She was driving a 2010 Porsche Cayenne SUV down an alley between the Maritime and Dream hotels in Midtown Manhattan when she allegedly struck a pedestrian. Lindsay, who was accompanied by two males, exited her car to speak with the 34-year-old male victim, then she got back in the vehicle, parked, and went inside the Dream.
When Lindsay emerged from the club at 2:25 a.m., police placed her under arrest for leaving the scene of the accident while causing an injury. She was issued a desk appearance ticket for a future unspecified date.
The police spokesperson noted that drugs and alcohol were not factors in Lindsay’s arrest. As for the person she hit, he complained of a knee injury and was taken to Bellevue Hospital. He was later released.
Lindsay’s publicist, Steve Honig, declined to comment on the incident to the Associated Press.
Just a few days ago – on Sunday night – Lindsay took to Twitter to weigh in on Amanda Bynes’ saga. “Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?” Lindsay complained. It was an odd comment from someone who has had a tremendous amount of legal trouble herself, including two DUIs, probation violations, and a theft conviction. Bynes has yet to be convicted of any crime.
