Being a Mean Girl? Lindsay Lohan arrested for assault after fighting with a female in a New York City nightclub
Lindsay Lohan has been arrested after getting into a fight at a New York nightclub and allegedly punching another woman.
The troubled starlet, 26, was at celebrity haunt Avenue and after exchanging words with a fellow patron, she is believed to have punched Tiffany Eve Mitchell, 28, causing bruising and swelling to the victim’s face.
This morning, Lohan left a Manhattan police station, with a jacket over her head – while two blondes were seen leaving a police station, one with visible bruising on her face – believed to be the victim.

A police source told the New York Post that Mitchell, of Palm Beach, Florida, and Lohan were sitting in separate VIP sections when a fight broke out nearby and both women stood up to watch.
Mitchell and Lohan bumped into each other and words were exchanged with Lohan saying something to the effect of ‘Give me my space’, but both returned to their seats.
Then Lohan allegedly got back up and punched Mitchell in the face.

Police were called, and Mitchell identified Lohan as her attacker.
As she was led away in handcuffs, the star is believed to have yelled: ‘Oh my God! I didn’t touch anyone!’
Lohan was later taken to the 10th Precinct Station House in Manhattan, where she was accused of misdemeanor assault. She received a desk appearance ticket and will have to appear in court on January 11.
Lohan and a large group left the precinct around 7:30 a.m. with her head covered by a dark coat as they walked to a waiting car, as the actress was heard yelling at someone ‘get out of the car Gavin, get of the car now’ several times.
‘It’s become a pastime to use her name and fame and blame things on her,’ said Gavin Doyle, a Lohan assistant.
