Police sources tell the NY Daily News that Lindsay was driving slowly through the crowded alley and honking her horn. People moved out of the way but she brushed up against the one person. She got out of the car and spoke to the man and then drove off. The man then called police.
It was the latest car accident involving Lohan.
On June 8, Lohan was involved in a crash in California that sent her and her assistant to a hospital. They were on their way to a shoot for the film “Liz and Dick” when Lohan’s Porsche collided with a dump truck on the Pacific Coast Highway. Neither was seriously injured and Lohan resumed shooting later in the day.
The accident remains under investigation and police have said they are trying to determine who was driving.
Lohan remains on informal probation for taking a necklace last year from a jewelry store without permission.
She completed a strict counseling and morgue cleanup duty program implemented by a judge. She is not required to check in with a judge or probation officer, but she could face a jail term if she is re-arrested.
