The 'Mean Girls' actress was leaving Arizona nightspot the Jackrabbit Supper Club and Lounge with her girlfriend Samantha Ronson when a man lunged at her.
Jackrabbit owner Dan Wierck said that: "The gentleman became very excited when he realised he was so close to Samantha and he has a history of being a stalker with Lindsay Lohan so he immediately attacked her and started yelling, 'I love her, I love her!'"
Police and the couple's bodyguards quickly stepped in and wrestled the 38-year-old man to the ground. He was promptly arrested for disorderly conduct.
No charges against him had been filed at the time of writing.
Officers have so far refused to release the man's name, and would only say: ?No one was hurt during the altercation."
Lindsay, 22, is not the only famous face to recently attract unwanted attention from an overzealous fan.
Last month, Jennifer Garner obtained a court order against 'stalker' Steven Burky, while Tom Cruise recently obtained a restraining order against a military veteran who tried to hand-deliver a letter to his house three times in four days.
