According to TMZ.com, Lindsay was pulling in at low speed to park her Porsche Cayenne near the Dream Hotel when she allegedly hit the knee of an unnamed man in his 30s.

One of Lindsay's passengers got out and checked her vehicle for damage, and then the group went into the hotel.

Police were called and when she walked out of the building at 2.30am - around half an hour after the accident - the actress was arrested.

Lindsay, 26, was booked for the misdemeanour offence of leaving the scene of an accident and released with a desk appearance ticket, meaning she did not have to pay bail before release.

The alleged victim was not knocked down by the vehicle and had no visible injuries, but was still taken to hospital.

Though the offence is a misdemeanour, it could trigger a probation violation in the 'Mean Girls' star's jewellery theft case as one of the conditions of probation is that she obeys all laws.
