Wasn't Lindsay Lohan the one who was just talking smack about Amanda Bynes constantly getting in trouble behind the wheel? Well, maybe Lohan shouldn't have been so quick to judge, because karma is a b***h. Lohan was arrested on Wednesday morning for leaving the scene of a accident in New York City, a public information officer for the New York City Police Department tells Hollywood.com.
She was arrested for "leaving the scene of a minor vehicle accident with a pedestrian," the officer says. It all allegedly went down at the Dream Downtown when Lohan entered the parking area, where she allegedly struck a male and then decided to proceed into the hotel instead of waiting at the scene. She was arrested when she exited the hotel about an hour and a half later. The officer relays that the incident occurred around 1 AM, and Lohan was arrested at about 2:30 AM.
The police confirm that the victim reportedly suffered a knee injury and was taken to Bellevue Hospital. The extent of the injury is not known at this time. Lohan, on the other hand, was arrested — but she didn't have to spend the night in jail. She was released with a desk appearance ticket, which means she didn't have to pay bail and was given a date to appear in court. The police also informed us that alcohol was not a factor involved in this incident.
"While some of the facts are still being gathered, it appears that this is much ado about nothing," Lohan's rep Steve Honig said in a statement to Hollywood.com. "We are confident this matter will be cleared up in the coming weeks and the claims being made against Lindsay will be proven untrue."
