There’s more legal trouble for Lindsay Lohan.
The same day that the actress was arrested in New York for allegedly punching a woman in a club, charges were filed against her in California in connection with a car accident.
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 three misdemeanors by Santa Monica prosecutors.
The charges were obstructing or resisting a police officer, providing false information to a police officer, and reckless driving.
According to media reports, Lohan told officers that her assistant had been driving. But Santa Monica police said in a statement, “During the subsequent investigation, information was developed that Lohan was the driver of the Porsche when the accident occurred.”
