(Newser) – Perhaps you were wondering whether Liz & Dick, laughable though it may be, would mark a real turnaround for troubled Lindsay Lohan. The answer: apparently not. LiLo was arrested yet again around 4am today in New York City on suspicion of assault, TMZ reports. Sources say Lohan and another woman got into an argument at a nightclub, and Lindsay allegedly punched the woman in the face. Sources say the two ladies were sitting in booths near one another—the New York Daily News' sources say both were in VIP sections—when nearby club-goers got in a fight and both women got up to avoid it. At one point LiLo reportedly said something along the lines of, "Give me my space," and one source says the other woman accidentally bumped into Lohan. But they had both returned to their seats before the alleged punch.

The other woman isn't expected to face charges, a police source tells NBC New York. Police had to intercept a car Lindsay was leaving in by the time they arrived. (One small sign of good judgment on LiLo's part: She was the passenger, not the driver.) She left a police station after almost four hours, the AP reports; TMZ notes she probably received an order to appear before a judge soon. The gossip site has video of an upset Lohan being placed into a cop car, saying, "Are you kidding?" (This is just the latest of Lindsay's troubles: Remember, she's also supposed to be charged with lying to cops in the near future.)
