Lindsay Lohan arrested for allegedly hitting pedestrian in Manhattan

American actress Lindsay Lohan was arrested for allegedly hitting a pedestrian in downtown Manhattan early in the morning on September 19, 2012.

The incident happened at an alley between Maritime and Dream hotels in Chelsea, when Lindsay Lohan was driving her black car, a Porsche Cayenne, at about 12:30 am. Lindsay allegedly hit the knee of a man. One of the friends of the actress got down out of the car to check if there was any damage to the car. Linday and her entourage later checked into the hotel.

Released with Desk Appearance Ticket

The police was called while she was inside the hotel. They arrested her when she was coming out at about 2 am. Media reports say that Lindsay screamed "Call my dad!" when she was being taken to custody. Lindsay was taken to the station and the regular procedure of fingerprinting and photographing were done. She was booked for fleeing the scene of accident, which is a misdemeanor. She was later released after a desk appearance ticket was given to her. Lindsay Lohan will have to appear at a court at a later date.

The police don't think Lindsay Lohan was intoxicated, though no Breathalyzer test was performed at the scene.


The victim Jose Rodriguez was said to be a male in his 30's and is a chef in Manhattan. He called 911 and was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he was given morphine for his pain. The victim suffered torn tendons.

The victim alleged that Lindsay Lohan breath smelled like alcohol.

The arrest could trigger a probation violation for Lindsay Lohan. The probation law states that all the laws should be obeyed.
