Lindsay Lohan Charged In Santa Monica California Today On Several Misdemeanors, Highlight Hollywood News

Lindsay Lohan was charged on Thursday with crimes in New York City and Los Angeles County, marking her latest setbacks as she tries to revive her career and avoid a return to jail. Prosecutors in Santa Monica charged Lohan with three misdemeanors related to a June accident. Hours earlier, the actress was arrested and charged with third-degree assault, also a misdemeanor, after a woman was punched in a New York City nightclub.

The California charges came about six months after Lohan’s Porsche crashed into the back of a dump truck. She told police her assistant was driving, but detectives now believe the actress was behind the wheel as she headed to a movie set. In that case, Lohan, 26, was charged with lying to police, reckless driving and obstructing a police officer from performing duties.

Lohan’s California attorney, Shawn Holley, did not return messages seeking comment.

In New York, her attorney Mark Heller said he expects the assault charge to be dismissed.
