Not a week after complaining that Amanda Bynes hasn’t been punished enough for her myriad driving troubles, Lindsay Lohan has been arrested for leaving the scene of an accident… after allegedly hitting a pedestrian in NYC. Shortly after midnight, Lindsay was parking her Porsche Cayenne near the Dream Hotel (of course she was) in Manhattan when she allegedly clipped a man in the knee. Per TMZ, someone called the cops while Lindsay was inside and, when she came out of the Dream around 2:30 in the morning, she was promptly arrested by waiting officers.
According to our sources … Lindsay was taken to the station, fingerprinted, photographed and booked for leaving the scene of an accident — a misdemeanor — and then released with a desk appearance ticket … meaning she did not have to pay bail before release.
We’re told alcohol was not involved.
We’re told the alleged victim was hospitalized … however, he was not knocked down or dragged, and didn’t have any visible injuries.
This arrest could absolutely trigger a probation violation in Lindsay’s jewelry theft case because one of the conditions of probation is she OBEY ALL LAWS.
Lindsay is apparently claiming she had no idea she hit anybody and “it wasn’t until she came out and got arrested that she knew anything was going on.” She (or someone close to her) told TMZ that the whole situation is “really fishy.” Classic Lohan.
