Everyone’s favorite Hollywood party girl has found herself in hot water again, this time for allegedly leaving the scene of an accident. Lindsay Lohan, 26, was arrested early Wednesday after police say she clipped a pedestrian with her vehicle while driving through downtown Manhattan. TMZ reports that Lohan was pulling in to park her Porsche Cayenne near the Dream Hotel in NYC when she allegedly hit the knee of an unidentified man. One of the actress’ passengers reportedly checked the vehicle for damage and then proceeded to enter the hotel with Lohan. When the group exited around 2:30 a.m., officers took her into custody.
Lohan was booked for the crime, a misdemeanor, and released with a desk appearance ticket. The actress is reportedly livid about the pedestrian’s claims and thinks she’s the victim of a carefully plotted set up. The injured man was not knocked down or dragged by the vehicle and did not have visible injuries. He was however hospitalized. The arrest could potentially violate the actress’ probation that stems from a jewelry theft case.
Lohan’s arrest is ironic considering that she made comments this week about actress Amanda Bynes who was was previously charged with two misdemeanor counts of hit and run after allegedly crashing into a car and fleeing the scene. Bynes has committed the crime twice in the span of five months. “Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?”, wrote Lohan on Monday. Bynes reportedly didn’t appreciate the star’s gibes and told a friend, “I hate being compared to her!”
