NEW YORK -

Actress Lindsay Lohan is under arrest after police say she hit a woman during an argument at a New York City nightclub.

New York City police say Lohan was placed under arrest at 4 a.m. Thursday and charged with third-degree assault.

They say she got into the argument with another woman at Club Avenue in the Chelsea section of Manhattan. Police say she struck the woman in face with her hand. The victim did not require medical attention.

Her publicist didn't immediately return a call for comment.

The actress has had frequent brushes with law enforcement.

She was involved in a New York City police investigation in September. She alleged a man had assaulted her in a New York hotel, but charges against the man were later dropped.
