Mean Girls star is charged with third-degree assault after allegedly hitting woman at Club Avenue

Lindsay Lohan has been arrested after police said she hit a woman during an argument at a New York City nightclub.

The Mean Girls and Freaky Friday star was arrested at 4am and charged with third-degree assault.

She allegedly got into the spat with another woman at Club Avenue, in the Chelsea area of Manhattan. She struck the woman in the face with her hand, police said. The victim did not require medical attention.

Her publicist did not immediately return a call for comment.

The arrest is Lohan's latest brush with law enforcement in New York City.

Lohan remains on informal probation for taking a necklace from a jewellery store without permission last year. That means she does not have to check in with a judge or probation officer but could face a jail term if arrested again. »
