The NYPD arrested actress Lindsay Lohan at a nightclub in Manhattan after she punched another female patron early Thursday morning, according to police.

Lohan allegedly struck the woman in the face with her hand at about 4 a.m. at Club Avenue on 10th Ave. after words were exchanged, sources told Fox 5 News.

Lohan told the woman "give me my space" as she sat in a booth. A short time later fists started to fly, sources said.

Alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the dispute.

The woman, identified by the NY Post as Tiffany Eve Mitchell, 28, of West Palm Beach, FL had visible bruising on her face.

The victim did not require medical attention.

Lohan is facing a misdemeanor assault charge. The actress, wearing a green jacket and black tights, was escorted out of the precinct with a black jacket over her head at about 7:30 a.m. She was issued a desk appearance ticket.

Lohan's attorney, Mark Heller, told Fox 5 News that his client did nothing wrong.

"Once again, Lindsay Lohan is a victim of someone trying to capture their 15 minutes of fame," Heller said. "From my initial investigation, I am completely confident that the case will be concluded favorably and that Linsday will be totally exonerated."

The incident is the latest in a long string of run-ins with the law for the Long Island native.

On Thursday, prosecutors in Santa Monica, Calif. filed charges against Lohan in connection with allegedly lying to cops about her role in a car accident on Pacific Coast Highway in June.

On September 21, Lohan, 26, was arrested on a charge of leaving an accident scene after a restaurant worker said her Porsche hit him and hurt his knee as she turned from a Manhattan street into an alley by the Dream Hotel. Police said no alcohol was involved.

Lohan was released with an appearance ticket.

Prosecutors decided not to move forward on the allegations about the incident.

About a week after the episode near the Dream Hotel, Lohan told authorities a man grabbed her in a New York hotel room in an argument over cellphone photos. The man was initially arrested, but the arrest was voided hours later when the charge could not be substantiated, law enforcement officials said.

Last month, police were called to Lohan's childhood home in the New York suburbs after getting a report that she and her mother were fighting. Investigators found nothing criminal happened, Nassau County police said.

The 'Liz and Dick' actress is on informal probation for taking a necklace last year without permission from a jewelry store in Venice, Calif.; she spent 35 days on house arrest in that case.
