La Linds was charged with leaving the scene of an accident and causing injury. She was given a ticket and scheduled for a Oct. 23 court hearing.
Her publicist, Steve Honig, declined to comment, but could have merely said, "Whatever I said the last time."
Her attorneys did not immediately respond to voice mails and emails from the Associated Press seeking comment.
Police said Lindsay was slowly driving her Porsche through an alley (because Porsches are at their best going 20 mph through city alleys) between the Dream Hotel and the Maritime Hotel on 16th Street when the accident occurred. The victim called 9-1-1. He was treated at a hospital for a knee injury and released.
It was the latest car accident involving Lindsay, for whom Tattle has three key words of advice:
"Call a cab."
On June 8, she and her assistant were on their way to a shoot for the Lifetime TV movie "Liz and Dick" when her Porsche collided with a dump truck on the Pacific Coast Highway in California. No one was seriously injured, and Lohan resumed shooting later in the day.
(This was probably not the same Porsche unless Lindsay drove it cross-country, and since we didn't hear about any accidents, we can assume she didn't.)
That crash remains under investigation. Lindsay also remains on informal probation for taking a necklace last year from a jewelry store without permission.

Hamlisch tribute Barbra Streisand
, Aretha Franklin
and Liza Minnelli
took turns singing songs by the late Marvin Hamlisch
during a stirring memorial service for the composer on Tuesday night at the Juilliard School.
Minnelli sang "If You Really Knew Me" from the musical "They're Playing My Song," Franklin gave a soulful rendition of "Nobody Does It Better" from the James Bond film "The Spy Who Loved Me," and Streisand brought the crowd to its feet when she finished "The Way We Were" from the film of the same name.
The 90-minute memorial also boasted performances by Itzhak Perlman, Michael Feinstein, Chris Botti and Maria Friedman. Terre Hamlisch, Marvin's wife of 26 years, welcomed the crowd.
Hamlisch composed or arranged hundreds of scores for musicals and movies, including "A Chorus Line" on Broadway and films "The Sting," "Sophie's Choice," "Ordinary People" and "The Way We Were." He died on Aug. 6 in Los Angeles at age 68, after a short illness.
Streisand, who wore all black and sat on a stool, said she met Hamlisch in 1963, when he was her rehearsal pianist for Broadway's "Funny Girl." He also had to get everyone coffee.
Since Streisand didn't drink coffee, he would bring her chocolate doughnuts.
"He always brought me two, and so our love affair began," Streisand said.
* Satanic Verses
Rushdie is dismissing the latest threat against his life as just talk.
"This was essentially one priest in Iran looking for a headline," the author said Tuesday night as he spoke at a Manhattan Barnes & Noble before about 400 people - all sitting as far away from him as possible.
The fatwa on Rushdie dates to 1989, when Iran's Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini declared Rushdie's novel blasphemous and called for his death.
Iran's government has distanced itself from Khomeini's
decree, but a semiofficial Iranian religious foundation headed by Ayatollah Hassan Saneii has raised the bounty for Rushdie from $2.8 million to $3.3 million after recent protests against an anti-Islamic film (which Rushdie had nothing to do with) that sparked riots around the Middle East.
Rushdie has called the movie "the worst video on YouTube."
His new memoir, Joseph Anton, is about the fatwa.
* Although Tattle got back from
the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) last week, we will not be going to PIFF.
That's the biennial Pyongyang International Film Festival, which offers North Koreans their only chance to see a wide array of foreign films on the big screen - from Britain, Germany and elsewhere (but not America). It's also the only time foreigners are allowed into North Korean theaters to watch movies alongside locals.
Like every year, all films foreign and domestic will be produced, written and directed by and starring the late Kim Jong Il.
