Lindsey Lohan was arrested in downtown New York last night after a pedestrian told police she hit him with her SUV. A spokesperson for the New York Police Department confirmed that the actress was charged with leaving the scene of an accident – a possible misdemeanor – at approximately 2:30 a.m., after a 34-year-old Hispanic man claimed Lohan’s black Porsche Cayenne SUV struck him in his knee as she was driving down an alley near the Dream Hotel on West 16th Street in Manhattan. The man was taken to Bellevue Hospital.
No alcohol or drugs were suspected to have played a role in the incident, and Lohan was released with a desk appearance ticket after being processed at the police station. No bail was required. The accident could impact her probation, with or without a conviction.
