Down and out in New York: Lindsay Lohan exhibited some bizarre behaviour as she sat in the street smoking after leaving bar with friends
Sitting in a grimy street, head face-first on the pavement, troubled star Lindsay Lohan appears to be down and out as she leaves a New York bar.
Looking decidedly the worse for wear, Lohan - who as part of her probation is not allowed to drink alcohol - appeared to have spent the best part of the evening hanging out with friends in The Cabin Down Below bar soon after arriving in New York by private jet.
After emerging, she is seen stooping on the floor, groping for support, and struggling to stay atop her high platform heels.
A new Lo: Lindsay hits the floor with her face
Dressed in a very short black dress, leopard print coat, the Machete star kneels on the floor, cigarette in hand, laughing uncontrollably and inadvertently exposed her underwear.
The 24-year-old stumbles to her feet while her laughing friends - including Samantha Swetra who was recently involved in a fight with Boardwalk Empire actress Paz de la Huerta - show little concern.
Finally one of them goes to her aid.
Lohan attempted to play down the scenes this morning tweeting: 'Is it not allowed to slip and fall? im always a klutz!!!'
Party time in the Big Apple: Lindsay arrived in New York last night by private jet and was soon seen out with friends on the Lower East side of Manhattanv
A source told the New York Daily News that Lohan had checked into a Times Square hotel instead of going as planned to her family's Long Island home.
Later that night, she was seen bar-hopping with Swetra starting at the Rose Bar in the Gramercy Park Hotel before continuing to The Cabin Down Below in the East Village, an ultra-exclusive bar disguised as a dive.
Lohan arrived in New York as it emerged she is planning to leave Los Angeles and set up home in the city.
Questions to answer: Lindsay will have some explaining to do to her probation officer as she appears very high-spirited in these pictures taken last night
According to her mother Dina Lohan the troubled actress is 'actively looking' for an apartment to rent.
Lindsay has been seen more and more in the city in recent weeks, flying in on a private jet a few days ago, supposedly join her family for a vacation on Long Island.
'She will be in New York a lot more going forward. She's actively looking for places in the city with her younger brother Michael,' Dina said.
'She loves it here. And she has a lot of friends who already have places, so she might sublet.'
And Lohan wasted no time in meeting up with some of those friends in a bar on the Lower East Side of the city.
