Troubled Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan has been arrested after colliding with a pedestrian in her car and then failing to stop after the incident in lower Manhattan today.

Police said, she was driving her black 2010 Porsche Cayenne SUV into a side road between the Maritime Hotel and Dream Hotel on West 16th Street. When her car clipped a 34-year-old man. Without stopping she then got out of the car and entered the Dream Hotel. As she left the hotel a short time later, Police caught up with her, where she was charged with a misdemeanour and released. The as yet unnamed man is believed to have sustained injuries to his knee, and is in a stable condition at Bellevue Hospital.

Lohan has been in the news for all the wrong reasons in the past few years and public stints in jail, rehab and court have grabbed all the wrong kind of headlines for her. But most recently she has tried to make a comeback to get back to her serious acting roots, so whether this latest high profile prang, will make a dent in her career, only time will tell.
