Oh shizz. Before I even got a chance to watch Liz & Dick (yeah, it’s still on my DVR), Lindsay Lohan got herself arrested in a New York City nightclub. The actress, who is allegedly very distraught over heavy criticism of her performance as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s Liz & Dick, is already facing jail time and in danger of getting her probation revoked for lying to cops about a car accident that took place back in June. Click inside to learn more about the brawl that went down last night, which landed LiLo back behind bars. She just got out, like, minutes ago. Madness. And yeah, that’s an old pic… which kinda makes this whole thing sadder.
TMZ has the report:
Lindsay Lohan was ARRESTED at 4 AM Thursday in New York City for allegedly punching a woman at a New York City nightclub … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Our sources say Lohan was at Club Avenue when she got into some sort of argument with a female patron and it became physical. We’re told cops came and arrested Lindsay for allegedly assaulting her.
Law enforcement tells us prior to the fight words were exchanged between Lindsay and the woman as they sat in separate booths near each other. Lindsay said something to the effect of, “Give me my space.” Some time passed and then, for some reason, Lindsay allegedly punched the girl in the left side of her face.
We’re told by the time cops arrived Lindsay had left the club and was a passenger in a car that was leaving the area. Cops intercepted the car and made the arrest.
At the time of this post Lindsay is still at the police station.
And this isn’t Lindsay’s only legal problem. TMZ broke the story … she is about to be charged with lying to cops in June after her car accident on Pacific Coast Highway. She told them she was a passenger in the Porsche when actually she was driving.
And, if Lindsay is formally charged with the latest crime, it could trigger yet another probation violation.
UPDATE 7AM ET: We’re told Lindsay is still at the police station getting booked for third degree misdemeanor assault, and she’s “visibly tired.”
MADNESS. And then again, not so much (sidenote; while writing this, LiLo was released):
I know none of y’all are particularly surprised by this news, as we’ve all seen this headline before. It sounds like those Liz & Dick reviews (on Twitter and everywhere else) really got to the actress. For whatever reason, this movie/moment was supposed to be Lindsay’s big comeback and things clearly did not pan out that way. And now, the downward spiral starts back up again (not that it ever really ended).
I know it’s been said before, but Lindsay really needs to go away! I don’t even mean that in a negative sense, I mean that in the Eat, Pray, Love type-a-way, lol. Like, seriously. Go away… for your own good. Get out of the clubs! And then get out of you! Just get out and get away (from family, from friends, from so-called friends, from the ‘lifestyle’) and get your life in order.
All that being said, she may, in fact be going away. But, like, to prison… what with all these probation violations. Madness/Sadness.
The drama continues…
UPDATE: Here is video of Lindsay Lohan being led away by police after her arrest:
You can clearly hear her cries of “are you kidding” at about the :34 mark. No, Lindsay, the cops are not kidding.
