Lohan's double trouble includes assault case

Actress Lindsay Lohan was arrested Thursday in New York City after she hit a woman during an argument, police said, and hours later she was charged in California for a crash in June in which her Porsche slammed into a dump truck.

The "Mean Girls" and "Freaky Friday" star was arrested at 4 a.m. and charged with third-degree assault. She left a police precinct nearly four hours later with a jacket pulled over her head.

Police say Lohan, 26, got into the spat with a woman at Club Avenue in Manhattan. She struck the woman in the face with her hand, police said. The woman did not require medical attention.

The charges come after Lohan's portrayal of Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime movie "Liz & Dick" premiered to harsh reviews from critics and the public.

Santa Monica Police Department Sgt. Richard Lewis said the California charges were filed Thursday morning. He declined to release further details. Court officials could not immediately confirm the charges. The filing comes nearly six months after the actress crashed while on her way to the set of "Liz & Dick." The case could trigger a probation violation for Lohan, who remains on informal probation in the state for a necklace theft.
