Fresh off the heels of her arrest for assault earlier this week, Lindsay Lohan is claiming that the incident in the NYC nightclub wasn't her doing.

According to the New York Post, the much maligned 26-year-old actress experienced a meltdown after the events while in a hotel on the Upper East Side.

A source recalled hearing the Liz & Dick star crying and saying, "Why does this happen to me? This is a setup! I don’t deserve this . . . It’s not my fault!" The incident was seemingly sparked after Lohan accused Tiffany Mitchell of stealing her sister's Ali's purse which contained $10,000 that she gave her.

''I was trying to find out who stole Ali’s purse!" Lohan continued according to the source. "I gave her the money for my family, to pay for my brother’s school fees." The source added that they overheard her saying she never hit the girl.

The problems continue for the actress as it's been learned that Mitchell hired attorney Gloria Allred to represent her in the suit. Lohan is also still facing charges stemming from her June car crash to add to her growing list of problems that has led her to allegedly consume two liters of vodka a day.
