Lohan held over NY hit and run

Lindsay Lohan was arrested in relation to an incident involving her car

Lindsay Lohan has been arrested in New York on charges that she clipped a pedestrian with her car and did not stop, police said.

The 26-year-old actress was arrested as she left a Manhattan nightclub in the early hours of Wednesday. Police said no alcohol was involved.

Lindsay was charged with leaving the scene of an accident and causing injury. She was given a ticket and will have to appear in court on October 23.

Her publicist declined to comment.

Police said the star was driving a black Porsche slowly through an alley when the accident occurred. The victim called emergency services and was treated at a hospital for a knee injury and released.

On June 8, Lindsay was involved in a crash in California that sent her and her assistant to a hospital. They were on their way to a film shoot when the star's Porsche collided with a dump truck. No one was seriously injured. The accident remains under investigation, and police have said they are trying to determine who was driving.

The star remains on informal probation for taking a necklace last year from a jewellery store without permission. She is not required to check in with a judge or probation officer, but she could face a jail term if she is re-arrested.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
