Lindsay Lohan charged with leaving accident scene

Lindsay Lohan was arrested early Wednesday morning in New York, accused of leaving the scene of an accident, police said.

A spokesman for the New York Police Department told CNN the actress was arrested around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday and taken to New York’s 10th Precinct police station, where she was processed and released on her own recognizance. CNN has reached out to Lohan's rep for comment.

According to police, Lohan was entering the parking area of the Dream Hotel shortly after midnight in her 2010 Porsche Cayenne. Police said the hotel shares a driveway with a restaurant and that as Lohan was entering she allegedly hit a restaurant employee.

Police allege she continued into the driveway and parked her car, leaving the scene of the accident. Lohan was charged with leaving the scene. Police said drugs and alcohol are not suspected in the accident.

    On TV, the said the employee claimed she yelled "get out of my way." She messed up his knee badly, tearing the ligaments and then she ignored him, lying there, and went int to party with friends. He also said she smelled like a brewery. Lohan refused a breathalyzer. Isn't it about time someone threw this obnoxious selfish little monster into prison for ten years or so? Her recent pictures (see the article) show a face that has lost considerable youth & beauty already, so that would probably get this little creep out of our news stories for good.

      My guess is she is adding to her downward spiral with a little meth.

    I feel for her, she needs to be loved and made to feel special, like any other woman. I think she is missing that in her life and is bouncing around all over the tabloids making negative news.She is probably a wonderful person just needs to be loved and that will change her. She needs to find someone that doesn't want anything from her . Lindsay call me sweet heart.

    So how many "2nd, 3rd, 4th, and on" chances do WE GET? MAYBE, just maybe a 2nd chance but after that your on your own! It is past time to throw this one in jail, not overnight, and let her "dry out", after several years and then she if it will make a difference!?

    Having watched the tape, I don't understand why if she hit the person, the other people present did not get upset, say something, scream out at her, or start talking about the incident? Instead they all continued their conversations as if nothing happened.

    I watched the tape, and what is interesting, if she hit the guy, how come none of the people present offered him any assistance? I mean none of them even stopped their conversations. Surely, you would think if they witnessed someone getting hit, someone in the group would have shouted out "did you seer that" or yelled "stop, what are you doing" but there was nothing.

    Why does this twit even HAVE a valid driver's license? Seems like she's had more bumper-thumpers than Zsa Zsa Gabor and Mickey Rooney combined had spouses. She's a menace on the road. Pull her permit somebody, PLEASE, before someone really gets hurt.

    What a shame! Parents, be parents to your kids, don't try to be their buddy or best friend. If they learn they are accountable and responsible at an early age they won't be disfunctional like many are today. God bless...
