On Thursday, police said Lohan got into a spat with another woman at Club Avenue in the Chelsea area of Manhattan. The woman was punched in the face and did not require medical attention.
It remains unclear when Lohan will return to Los Angeles. No court date was announced for the crash-related charges.
People charged with misdemeanors in California can generally avoid court appearances if they have an attorney, but Lohan would have to be present for a probation violation hearing.
