Lohan: I Wasn't Smashed During Ivy Crash!

7/25/2007 4:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan claims that the man accusing her of being liquored-up during a 2005 smash-up is full of s**t -- and she can prove it!

According to legal documents filed last week in L.A. County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ, Lohan claims the boozy accusations in a lawsuit filed last month by Raymundo Ortega are "nothing more than an attempt to extort money from a celebrity by setting forth false and scurrilous allegations in a complaint." Ortega alleged that Lohan "consumed alcohol and became intoxicated" at the famous Ivy restaurant in in West Hollywood before making an illegal U-turn and crashing into his red van.

But Lohan claims that the police report from the scene makes it crystal clear, it said, "MS. LOHAN had not been drinking." The officer at the scene went on to write, "I did not observe any objective signs of either alcohol or drug intoxication and determined that no further investigation regarding intoxication was warranted."

Ortega is suing both The Ivy and Lohan for damages in excess of $200,000.

Is it just me or has anyone else put together the connection that this is all happening only days before her next movie is opening (Friday "I Know Who Killed Me"??? Her last movie tanked and perhaps this whole thing is a sick publicity stunt...I wouldn't put it past the sleazy hollywood studios.

#47 Bob - " how can they arrest you for driving drunk when they did not see you drive "

For one example you can incriminate yourself such as when you explain the story ( your side) to the police officer. .

Regauding the artical about her U turn wreck. A police officer would not have written " She was not drinking " would write " She said " she had not been drinking

Maybe some of that got cut out huh? How could the officer know she didnt drink anything? When I got in a wreck the police put nothing about drinking at all in the report, Why did they add all that for her report ?

zzz....I'll say it again...you should relax just a bit. and I'm NOT getting my facts from this site...merely commenting on it since I have some first hand knowledge. Like I said...I'm certainly not going to try to defend most of the other stuff that has happened...but this particular incident is nothing more than an ambulance chaser trying for a quick settlement.
