Lindsay Lohan Released From Police Custody After Nightclub Arrest

Lindsay Lohan has been released from police custody in New York following her arrest on suspicion of assaulting a woman at a nightclub.

The Mean Girls star was detained by cops in the early hours of Thursday morning after she allegedly punched a female party-goer in the face at Manhattan hotspot Club Avenue, following a night out at Justin Bieber's Madison Square Garden concert.

She reportedly refused medical treatment and was taken to a local police station, where she was booked on a third-degree misdemeanor assault charge.

A video of Lohan's arrest has now emerged online in which she is seen being lead away in handcuffs by a police officer while tearfully declaring, "Are you kidding? Oh my God..."

New York Police Sergeant John Buthorn has revealed the unnamed victim, a 28-year-old woman from Florida, sustained "minor, minor injuries" and a spokesman for the New York Police Department adds, "(Lohan was) involved in some type of dispute (inside the nightclub). She struck another female patron in the face and was arrested a short time later outside the club."

Lohan, 26, was released around 7.30am local time after being handed a desk appearance ticket, which orders her to attend a court hearing to face the charge at a future date.

The incident leaves the actress facing the prospect of a stint in jail as she remain on probation from a shoplifting charge from last year. It is the latest in a series of legal woes for Lohan, following a previous arrest in New York in September when a pedestrian claimed she hit him with her car, and a dramatic incident at a Manhattan hotel later that month when she accused a man of assaulting her.

The hit-and-run case against Lohan was dropped due to insufficient evidence, and charges against her alleged hotel attacker were also dismissed.
