The 26-year-old troubled actress was arrested on the misdemeanor charge after she allegedly struck a woman at the club. Witnesses at the club reveal that Lindsay Lohan and another female exchanged angry words as they sat in separate booths near each other, with Lindsay saying to the other female,
“Give me my space.” A few moments passed and the two were at it again this time Lindsay was said to have punched the other female in the left side of her face.

Lindsay Lohan was taken to New York’s 10th precinct and received a desk appearance ticket. Lohan was released around 8 a.m.This latest incident is just another to add to Lohan’s long list of arrests and criminal activity.
Her accuser, a 28-year-old woman from West Palm Beach, Florida, was also in the 10th Precinct, did not require medical attention and was not expected to be charged.
While living in Los Angeles, the actress was incarcerated six times, but spent less than a total of two weeks behind bars. Last year she also spent 35 days under house arrest after pleading no contest to stealing a $2,500 necklace.
In March, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner took Lohan off probation from a 2007 DUI case. Over the past five years, the actress has been in and out of rehab five times as she has battled drug and alcohol problems.
