Uh-oh … we’ve got more Lindsay trouble.
Early this morning (September 19th), Lindsay Lohan was picked up by the NYPD in the Meatpacking District for a “low speed crash” that left a pedestrian with a knee injury.
The 26-year-old actress was parking her 2010 Porsche Cayenne at 1.a.m. in an alley next to the Dream Hotel and police officials report that she struck and injured a 30-year-old man, causing him to be transported to the hospital.
According to TMZ, Lohan’s passengers got out, checked the vehicle, and completely ignoring the gentlemen, made their way into the hotel. During this time, police officials were called and around 2:30 a.m. she was arrested as she exited the hotel screaming, “Call my dad! Call my dad!”
Lohan was reportedly taken to New York’s 10th precinct where she was fingerprinted, photographed, charged for leaving the scene of an accident, a misdemeanor and released with a desk appearance ticket in hand, meaning that she would appear before a judge at a later date.
The two men who were in the vehicle were not charged and it seems that no alcohol was involved in the incident. However, the Porsche that she was driving was not registered in her name and when contacted, her publicist had no comment.
It should be noted that while she was charged with a misdemeanor, it could have a negative impact on her 2011 necklace theft case. Lohan is on probation until May 2014 and Judge Stephanie Sautner’s only requirement was that she obeys all laws. If called back to court, Lohan could face a jail sentence of up to 245 days.
