The great Lindsay Lohan was arrested just a few hours ago in N.Y. City for allegedly punching some girl at a nightclub ... not sure if anyone is surprised or cares.
It happened, though. The starlet was partying at Club Avenue when she got into some sort of beef with a female patron and things eventually became physical.
Police arrived on the scene and arrested Lindsay for assault.
Words were exchanged between LiLo and the woman as they sat in nearby booths; it's not clear why they were jawing at each other, but it got ugly.
Lindsay said something to the effect of, "Give me my space."
Some time passed and then, for reasons still unknown, Lindsay allegedly punched the chick and the police were called, intercepting the actress' getaway.
Lohan was leaving the club in a car when cops pulled her over and arrested her; the troubled 26-year-old star is still in custody, according to TMZ.
Recently, Lohan was arrested for hit-and-run outside The Dream Hotel in NYC after supposedly bumping some guy, but cleared due to lack of evidence.
She also has other ongoing legal woes ... a lot of them.
The Liz & Dick star is about to be charged with lying to police in after her June car accident in L.A., when she claimed to be a passenger and not the driver.
If Lindsay is formally charged with this latest crime, or any crime for that matter, it could trigger another probation violation and land her in a jail cell again.
Unlike watching her try to act, this is no laughing matter.
