SANTA MONICA, CALIF. (AP) - California prosecutors have filed charges against Lindsay Lohan over a car crash on a coastal highway earlier this year.

Santa Monica Sgt. Richard Lewis says the charges were filed Thursday morning, but he declined to release more details until a formal press release could be issued. Court officials could not immediately confirm the charges.

The filing comes nearly six months after the actress crashed her Porsche into the back of a dump truck while on her way to a movie set.

Lohan’s attorney did not return messages seeking comment.

The case could trigger a probation violation for Lohan, who remains on informal probation in California for a necklace theft.

Lohan was arrested Thursday in New York City after police say she hit a woman during an argument at a nightclub.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.

Actress Lindsay Lohan was arrested Thursday after police said she hit a woman during an argument at a New York City nightclub.

The “Mean Girls” and “Freaky Friday” star was arrested at 4 a.m. and charged with third-degree assault.

She left a police precinct nearly four hours later with a black jacket pulled over her head. She was wearing leggings, a green mini dress and high-heels, and drove off in a black SUV with a driver, a woman and another man who was seen going in and out of the precinct.

She allegedly got into the spat with another woman at Club Avenue, in Manhattan’s Chelsea section. She struck the woman in the face with her hand, police said. The woman did not require medical attention.

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

The arrest is Lohan’s latest brush with law enforcement in New York City.

She was involved in a NYPD investigation in September after alleging a man had assaulted her in a New York hotel, but charges against the man were later dropped.

Also in September, the actress was accused of clipping a man with her car outside another Manhattan nightclub, but prosecutors chose not to move ahead with charges.
