Lindsay Lohan arrested for assault in NYC

Lindsay Lohan is in trouble again. The "Liz & Dick" actress was arrested in New York City earlier this morning for allegedly punching a woman at the nightclub Club Avenue.

Law enforcement officials reveal that Lohan had already left the club by the time they arrived. Police intercepted her car and booked her for a third degree misdemeanor assault. TMZ revealed the arrest and has video of Lohan being escorted into a police car.

She was given a desk appearance ticket and ordered to appear in court in the near future, but that's not the only court appearance Lohan has coming up. The 26-year-old actress is reportedly about to be charged for lying to a police officer in June following her Pacific Coast Highway car accident. If she is charged with either that or this assault, those could be counted as violations to her probation.

The assault incident allegedly occurred between Lohan and another woman who were sitting at separate booths at Club Avenue. TMZ reports that Lohan said something along the lines of, "Give me my space," and then later punched the woman on the left side of her face. Maybe the woman had made fun of Lohan's "Liz & Dick" performance?
