Lindsay Lohan

Uh-oh, LiLo: More legal troubles are under way.

Lindsay Lohan was arrested early Wednesday morning for leaving the scene of an accident after she purportedly swiped a bystander with her car while pulling into a New York City hot spot, E! News has confirmed.

According to an NYPD spokesman, shortly before 1 a.m. the 26-year-old star and two pals arrived at the posh Dream Hotel in downtown Manhattan in a black Porsche SUV, which she was supposedly driving.

As she pulled into the hotel, Lohan allegedly clipped a man in his 30s who was standing nearby and who police say was not a member of the actress's party. She then entered the hotel.

The man suffered an injury to his leg and was taken to nearby Bellevue Hospital, according to police, who did not immediately reveal the man's name.

After receiving a 911 call alerting them to the incident, officers were dispatched to the hotel, where they waited outside for the actress.

Lohan exited at 2:25 a.m. and was subsequently arrested on suspicion of leaving the scene of an accident.

The Liz & Dick star, who was dressed in black pants, did not resist arrest and was cooperative as she was handcuffed and taken in a police cruiser to a precinct in midtown Manhattan.

Alcohol is not believed to have been a factor in the incident, and the actress was not administered a sobriety test.

Lohan was released shortly after 4:30 a.m. and issued a desk appearance ticket. She's due to appear in court Oct. 23.

LiLo's latest police run-in comes just weeks after she was cleared of any involvement in a jewelry heist that happened during an overnight stay at a friend's Hollywood Hills home.
