Lindsay Lohan is in hot water again — she punched another woman in the face while in a Manhattan nightclub early Thursday, police sources said.
Lohan was questioned, along with witnesses, at the NYPD’s 10th Precinct stationhouse and charged with misdemeanor third-degree assault for the 4 a.m dust-up inside Avenue, a Chelsea hot spot on 10th Ave.
A police source said it appears Lohan, 26, and the victim, Tiffany Eve Mitchell, 28, of West Palm Beach, Fla., were sitting in separate VIP sections when a scuffle involving other club-goers broke out.
Both Lohan and Mitchell got up, possibly to avoid getting involved. At that point, the source said, it appears Mitchell accidentally bumped into Lohan.
The two women exchanged words, then both sat down. But Lohan got back up, the source said, and slugged Mitchell.
The victim, police said, did not require medical attention. Mitchell does not face charges, a second source said.
Lohan was wearing handcuffs and chunky high heels when she was loaded into a squad car and taken to the stationhouse for questioning. Others were brought in, too.
Afterward, Mitchell, her husband, and another couple left the 10th Precinct stationhouse about 7:15 a.m. Thursday and took off in a yellow cab.
About 15 minutes later, Lohan waltzed out of the NYPD stationhouse with a coat covering her head. She was accompanied by a man and they left inside a black Escalade.
Lohan was issued a desk appearance ticket and is due in court Jan. 11.
