At 2:25 this morning, actress Lindsay Lohan was arrested in New York City.
According to The Washington Post, the actress was arrested for clipping a pedestrian and failing to stop. The injured person was treated at a hospital for a knee injury, but released later.
The accident took place outside Dream Hotel in the Chelsea area of Manhattan. Lohan was driving back from a nightclub less than two miles away where TMZ reports the band Slash was playing. Although the nightclub is very close to the hotel, driving after a concert with congested areas due to crowds vacating is difficult.
Lohan's rep is confident the charges will be cleared.
“We are confident this matter will be cleared up in the coming weeks and the claims being made against Lindsay will be proven untrue,” said Lohan’s publicist Steve Honig.
The actress has recently tweeted her frustration over the way police handled child actress Amanda Bynes and her driving incidents. While Bynes is scheduled to appear in court later this month, Lohan will have to come back to New York for her own court hearing on October 23.
