Arrest follows panning for "Liz & Dick"
Lindsay Lohan isn't having the best week: Following the harsh reception to her Lifetime movie "Liz & Dick," she was arrested early Thursday morning for repeatedly punching a woman in the face at a Manhattan nightclub, police told Reuters.
Lohan was arrested on a third-degree misdemeanor assault charge, police said. New York police Sergeant John Buthorn told Reuters the other woman, 28, sustained "minor, minor injuries." She was not identified.

The incident occurred at the nighclub Avenue around 4 a.m. Lohan, 26, refused medical attention and must appear in court to face the charge, police said.
The run-in with the law is only the latest for Lohan, who has been twice convicted of drunken driving. She has repeatedly gone to rehab for treatment of drug and alcohol abuse.
"Liz & Dick" was intended as a comeback vehicle for the "Mean Girls" actress, but the film was panned by critics and ridiculed by viewers on Twitter.
It earned 3.5 million viewers Sunday, a decent number. It was Lifetime's fourth most-watched original movie premiere this year.
Lohan has also faced recent financial issues. On Monday, a spokesman for Charlie Sheen confirmed to TheWrap that the actor had given Lohan $100,000 to pay her taxes.
