Troubled US actress Lindsay Lohan has been arrested once again, this time on assault charges after a fight with a woman in a New York nightclub in the early hours of Thursday, police said.
“She was charged with assault” and ordered to appear at a later date, a New York Police Department (NYPD) spokeswoman said, adding that the 26-year-old actress allegedly struck the other woman.
Lohan — once a promising young starlet after earning plaudits for her roles in “The Parent Trap” and “Freaky Friday” as a child — has been trying to rebuild her life after a series of run-ins with the law.
Despite a widely praised performance in “Mean Girls” in her late teens, she has become more famous for drug problems that have led to several prison stays.
In March, a Los Angeles judge formally ended Lohan’s probation after a long string of court appearances, but told her to “stop the nightclubbing” and behave more maturely.
She recently starred in “Liz and Dick,” a television biopic about film legend Elizabeth Taylor and her stormy relationship with actor Richard Burton. Her work earned mixed reviews.
