Lindsay Lohan -- In trouble with the law from coast to coast.
From Web and wire reports
Lindsay Lohan has once again found herself in trouble with the law, E! News reports.
The "Liz & Dick" star was arrested early Thursday morning after allegedly punching a woman, Tiffany Eve Mitchell, at New York City's Avenue nightclub. Lohan was released from custody shortly before 8 a.m., and authorities say they expect her to be issued a desk-appearance ticket.
Here's a breakdown of what is known about the "Mean Girls" star's latest brush with the law.
It All Started With Justin Bieber: Yes, you read that right. Before LiLo's alleged throwdown in Chelsea, she was surrounded by thousands of Beliebers up at Madison Square Garden. "I love all of my fans and @justinbieber @thewanted fans!!!" she tweeted. "Thank you so much for putting a smile on my face!! Lots of love."
Linds wasn't rocking out to the Biebs by her lonesome. According to Twitter, she was joined by Ryan Norris, a self-described "starving artist working for pop stars," AEG tour promoter Matt Granger and AEG employee Jon Baden. (E! News did not immediately hear back from Lindsay's fellow concertgoers when asked for comment.)
One concertgoer told E! News that Lindsay was with her sister, Ali. "She came in with the lights on and sat on the floor ... She was smiling at everyone and took a few pics until escorted out ... They sat in the front row. They left after an hour."
Tourists [Allegedly] Were Involved: According to multiple reports, the woman Lindsay allegedly punched in the face, Tiffany Eve Mitchell, is a 28-year-old visiting from West Palm Beach, Fla., with her husband.
Mom, at Least, Is on Team Lohan: Dina Lohan, of course, is still in her daughter's corner. A source reports to E! News that after Lindsay's release from custody Thursday morning, her mom was by her side.
The same day that the actress was arrested in New York for allegedly punching a woman in a club, she had charges filed against her in California for lying to police in a separate incident, People reports.
Nearly six months after Lohan crashed her Porsche into the back of a dump truck in Santa Monica on the way to the set of the Elizabeth Taylor biopic "Liz & Dick," she was charged with lying to police.
According to media reports, Lohan claimed her assistant had been driving; however, the assistant told police that Lohan was driving.
"She is being charged," said Santa Monica Police Sgt. Richard Lewis, who adds that lying to police is only one of the charges. The charges were filed Thursday.
When Lohan appeared before Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner back in March to end her formal probation relating to two DUI arrests and a necklace theft case, she was warned that if she violates any laws before her informal probation expires in May 2014, she could get 245 days in jail.
Lenny Kravitz has signed on for his first leading film role, playing singer Marvin Gaye in a biopic that will be shot next year, The Associated Press reports.
The rocker's publicist, Carleen Donovan, confirmed the news Tuesday. Kravitz has played supporting roles in the past, including a small part in "The Hunger Games."
Rolling Stone first reported details about the 48-year-old performer's part in the film, directed by Julien Temple.
The magazine says the "Are You Gonna Go My Way" singer will portray Gaye during the 1980s when he was fighting his addictions and attempting to restart his career. Gaye died in 1984 after being shot by his father.
Radio talk show host Laura Ingraham is off the air -- at least temporarily, the AP reports.
She said Tuesday that she's leaving her distributor, Talk Radio Network, after more than nine years because her contract is up. Ingraham said she is in discussions with other distributors about her show, which currently airs on 325 stations nationally.
Talkers magazine says the conservative Ingraham is the most-listened to woman on radio, with an estimated 5.75 million listeners a week. Talkers said that ranks her among the top eight radio hosts overall.
In the meantime, she said she'll keep her opinions flowing on her website, on Twitter and during Fox News Channel appearances.
Captain James T. Kirk will be on hand when the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise is officially retired, the AP reports.
A publicist for William Shatner tells the Daily Press that the actor will attend the ship's inactivation ceremony Saturday at Naval Station Norfolk, Va. Shatner, who performed in Pittsburgh Thursday night, is scheduled to perform Friday in Newport News, Va.
Shatner played Kirk at the helm of the starship Enterprise in the "Star Trek" television series and several movies.
The world's first-nuclear powered aircraft carrier returned to Norfolk from its final deployment earlier this month. Saturday's inactivation will be its last public ceremony.
