The former rising star was taken into custody outside Dream Downtown, a hotel in NYC's Meatpacking District, around 2:30 AM this morning after she allegedly struck a pedestrian with her Porsche Cayenne and didn't bother sticking around.
One man in his 30s didn't get out of Lindsay's way fast enough, and was hit in the knee.
"He runs up to her, tells her she hit him," the police source said. "They get out of the car, there's some interaction with her, her entourage and the guy."
TMZ says Lindsay and her crew continued on their way into the hotel while the victim phoned the cops. She was subsequently arrested on her way out for leaving the scene of an accident — a misdemeanor.
Lindsay was booked and quickly released with a desk appearance ticket. Meanwhile, the victim was taken to the hospital to be treated for a very minor injury.
TMZ muses that this latest brush with delinquency could land Lindsay in court on a probation violation "if there's probable cause to believe she committed a crime."
