NEW YORK -- Oft-troubled actress Lindsay Lohan has had yet another brush with the law, this time in New York, where she was charged with leaving the scene of an accident.
Lohan was driving her Porsche Cayenne into the parking lot of the Dream Hotel off West 16th Street when she allegedly hit an employee of the restaurant next door, who was hospitalized with a knee injury, said Sgt. John Buthorn, a New York Police Department spokesman.
The entertainer kept driving, then parked her car and left the scene, Buthorn said. Police arrested her about 2:30 a.m. She was released on her own recognizance.
Buthorn said police don't suspect drugs or alcohol played a role in the incident.
The former child star is trying to make a career comeback after six years of legal troubles.
Earlier this year, Lohan completed five years of felony probation mandated after two drunken driving incidents in 2007. Since January of that year, the actress has spent 250 days in five rehab facilities dealing with drug and alcohol addiction.
In addition, Lohan spent six short stints totaling less than two weeks in the Los Angeles County jail, and endured 35 days of home confinement.
Just last month, Los Angeles County prosecutors released a report saying that Lohan, who is still on probation for a 2011 shoplifting incident, was considered a suspect in a burglary at a Hollywood home. However, prosecutors determined they didn't have enough evidence to charge her.
