It's a bad day for Lindsay Lohan.
Not only was the troubled starlet charged with third-degree assault for hitting a woman in a New York nightclub early this morning, but Lindsay was also formally charged with three misdemeanors by the Santa Monica City Attorney for lying to police regarding her June car accident, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
The Mean Girls actress told cops she was a passenger in the Porsche that crashed into the back of a big-rig truck on the Pacific Coast Highway, but the Santa Monica police investigation revealed she was actually the driver.
Lindsay, 26, was charged with providing false information to authorities, reckless driving and obstructing or resisting a police officer in the performance of his duty.
An eyewitness exclusively told RadarOnline.com, "Lindsay was completely out of control. She was drinking way too much booze and was doing cocaine.
"Lindsay went wild. She was kicking and screaming, cursing at the girl and then spit at her. The girl looked like she wanted to fight back at Lindsay, but was too startled by all the commotion to react."
