Lindsay Lohan charged with leaving scene of New York accident

 

Actress Lindsay Lohan was arrested in New York early this morning on charges that she clipped a pedestrian with her car and did not stop, police said.

The 26-year-old was arrested as she left a Manhattan nightclub, police said. They said no alcohol was involved.

Lohan was charged with leaving the scene of an accident and causing injury. She was given a ticket and will have to appear in court at a later date.

Her attorneys did not immediately respond to voicemails and emails seeking comment. A phone call to her publicist rang unanswered.

Police said Lohan was driving a black Porsche slowly through an alley when the accident occurred. The victim called emergency services and was treated at a hospital for a knee injury and released.

On 8 June, Lohan was involved in a crash in California that sent her and her assistant to a hospital. They were on their way to a film shoot when Lohan's Porsche collided with a dump truck. No one was seriously injured.

The accident remains under investigation, and police have said they are trying to determine who was driving.

Lohan remains on informal probation for taking a necklace last year from a jewelry store without permission. She is not required to check in with a judge or probation officer, but she could face a jail term if she is re-arrested.
