NEW YORK: Lindsay Lohan was arrested outside a New York nightclub on an assault charge early yesterday after she punched another woman in the face, police said, marking another legal dustup for the 26-year-old “Mean Girls” actress.

Lohan and the 28-year-old unidentified woman had some sort of a dispute inside the club Avenue in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighbourhood around 4am, police said.

Lohan, who has faced a series of legal and financial troubles in recent years, punched the woman in the face multiple times, said New York Police Sergeant John Buthorn, adding that the victim sustained “minor, minor injuries.”

Lohan was arrested on a third-degree misdemeanour assault charge, police said.

She was released from police custody later yesterday morning. 

She will have to return to court at a later date to face the charge, police said. REUTERS
