The victim called 911 and was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for an injury to his knee before he was released.
TMZ reports that Lohan was arrested at approximately 2:30am when she exited the hotel and police were waiting there for her. She was taken to a nearby police station, fingerprinted, photographed and booked for leaving the scene of an accident.
Since the incident was a misdemeanor, Lohan was issued a ticket and is scheduled to appear in court on October 23rd. She was then released from the police station.
