They say she got into an argument with another woman at Club Avenue in the Chelsea section of Manhattan. Police say she struck the woman in the face with her hand.

The victim did not require medical attention.

Lohan's publicist did not immediately return a call for comment.

The actress has had frequent brushes with law enforcement. She was involved in a New York City Police investigation in September, when she alleged a man assaulted her in a New York hotel. Charges against the man were later dropped.
