Lindsay Lohan Arrested Following Hit And Run
Lindsay Lohan was arrested in New York early this morning following an incident, which saw her clip a pedestrian with her car.
Lindsay was thought to be preparing to park her car in the car park of the Dream Hotel, where she was staying in Manhattan at 12.30am when the accident occurred. Despite clipping a nearby pedestrian with her Porsche, 26 year-old Lindsay failed to stop and get out of the car, causing police to make the arrest later that morning.
A passenger who was in Lindsay’s car at the time did get out of the vehicle after the impact, but was merely checking the damage caused to Lindsay’s car. Onlookers reveal that nobody got out of the car to check the pedestrian hit was all right, instead the car continued into the hotel car park.
Police approached Lindsay to arrest her at 2.30am, when she emerged from the hotel after an event she was attending finished. Lindsay was booked with the misdemeanour offence of leaving the scene of an accident, before being released with a desk appearance ticket, which meant she didn’t need to pay bail charges prior to her release.
The pedestrian, who was hit, reportedly suffered no injuries, as the impact of the car was not hard enough to knock them down to the floor, however they were taken to hospital on precautionary measures.
Despite the accident causing no serious damage, the arrest could cause further problems for Lindsay, who is currently on probation for stealing jewellery from a store last year. The rules of her probation state that she must obey all laws, and this incident is a violation of those conditions.
Meanwhile, Lindsay is reportedly claiming the whole incident is ‘set up’ and plans to take legal action against her arrest, although many will be sceptical of this as it’s not the first time Lindsay has been arrested behind a vehicle. Just in June, Lindsay crashed a different Porsche after claiming she was cut up by a truck. In 2007 she was also arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, leading to her spending a stint a rehab.
