Lindsay Lohan's New York Arrest Could Cause a Probation Violation in Los Angeles

Posted By Attorney Robert M. Bernstein || 2-Oct-2012

Lindsay Lohan was arrested as she left the Dream Hotel, a 315-room luxury Manhattan hotel with a nightclub. About two hours before, as she was driving a black Porsche Cayenne SUV down an alley between the hotel and an adjacent hotel, she allegedly hit a pedestrian. She did not stop and entered the hotel, but one of two male passengers spoke to the man who complained the slow-speed vehicle hit his knee. The victim called authorities and was treated at a hospital.

Los Angeles city prosecutors said that if she did leave the scene of an accident, a Los Angeles judge could determine it was a violation of her probation terms, which could mean potentially more jail time or community service.

Lohan was first placed on probation in Los Angeles for a 2007 conviction for driving under the influence and subsequently in the 2011 conviction of shoplifting a necklace from a Venice jeweler. During five years on probation, she was repeatedly sent to jail for violating the terms.
