According to police, the 26-year-old actress was on her way to Dream Downtown, a luxury hotel near the Hudson River, when she hit a pedestrian. Lohan was arrested at the scene at 2:30 am Wednesday morning. Lohan, who was driving a black 2010 Porsche Cayenne SUV, kept driving after hitting the pedestrian. According to police, Lohan was driving with two unidentified males. When she arrived at the Manhattan hotspot, she immediately went into the club while one of her passengers went to check on the 34-year-old victim, who complained of knee pain, News Day reports. The victim, who was later taken to Bellevue Hospital, called the police. Lohan emerged from the club 30 minutes later and was arrested and processed at the 10th Precinct, according to News Day. She was given a desk appearance and released. Steve Honig, Lohan's publicist, released a statement about the incident. "While some of the facts are still being gathered, it appears that this is much ado about nothing," he said. "We are confident this matter will be cleared up in the coming weeks and the claims being made against Lindsay will be proven untrue." By Tatiana Baez
