    UNDATED (CBS) -- Actress Lindsay Lohan is in trouble with the law again. She was arrested after a fight at a New York nightclub.

    Lindsay Lohan had a coat pulled over her head as she was released from a New York City police station early this morning. The actress was arrested at around 4 a.m. after she allegedly hit a woman during an argument at a Manhattan nightclub. The incident happened at Club Avenue. Police say Lohan hit the woman in the face with her hand.

    Lohan's latest brush with the law came just days after her portrayal of Liz Taylor premiered on Lifetime.

    While she's been trying to get her career back on track, she's been the focus of several police investigations this year.

    In September, she was accused of clipping a man with her car outside another New York nightclub. In October, police were called to her childhood home on Long Island after a report of a fight between the actress and her mother. Lohan remains on probation for taking a necklace from a jewelry store last year.

    The woman Lohan is accused of hitting did not require medical attention.
