NEW YORK - Actress Lindsay Lohan was arrested outside a New York nightclub on an assault charge early Thursday, police said, while in California, she was charged with reckless driving and lying to police over a car crash in June.
Lohan, 26, was arrested shortly after 4 a.m. on a third-degree misdemeanor assault charge after punching another woman in the face at a club in the Chelsea neighborhood, police said.
The charges in California were more serious, and could result in the "Mean Girls" actress having her probation revoked and being sent back to jail.
Lohan, who has been to rehab, jail and court numerous times since a 2007 arrest for drunk driving and cocaine possession, is currently on informal probation, following her January 2011 conviction for stealing a gold necklace from a jewelry store.
A Los Angeles judge had lifted her formal probation in March but told her to comply with all laws and stay out of trouble.
Police in the beach city of Santa Monica said Lohan was formally charged on Thursday with reckless driving and lying to police after telling them she was not driving the Porsche that smashed into a truck on a busy highway. No one was seriously injured.
In New York, Lohan was accused of punching a 28-year-old unidentified woman multiple times in the face, said New York Police Sergeant John Buthorn. The victim sustained "minor, minor injuries," he said.
