Actress Lindsay Lohan was arrested on Wednesday (September 19) for leaving the scene of an accident after she struck a pedestrian on her way into a hotel in lower Manhattan, police said. Lohan's latest brush with the law started shortly before 2:30 a.m. when she drove her black 2010 Porsche Cayenne SUV into an alley between the Maritime Hotel and Dream Hotel on West 16th Street. Police said, without elaborating, tht Lohan's vehicle clipped a 34-year-old man. She then got out of the car and entered the Dream Hotel. Lohan, 26, was arrested when she left the hotel a short time later, charged with a misdemeanor and released. The man, who said his knee was injured, was in stable condition at Bellevue Hospital, police said. Lohan has been trying to make a comeback after a string of legal and personal troubles, including stints in jail, rehab and court. She was released in March from almost five years of formal probation stemming from a 2007 drunken driving and cocaine possession arrest.
