Lindsay:

'I Wasn't Driving,

the Black Kid Was'

7/27/2007 3:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Just before Lindsay Lohan was arrested early Tuesday morning, she commandeered a car and took three men hostage -- this, according to the three men who were in the car with her.
Lindsay's Wild Ride!
TMZ interviewed all three, and here's the lowdown: Rewind to Monday afternoon. Dante Nigro, Jakon Sutter and Ronnie Blake drove to Malibu with the boyfriend of Lindsay Lohan's assistant. Lindsay and her assistant ran into Dante and friends. Later, the assistant text-messaged Dante, saying Lindsay wanted to invite him to a Malibu party that night.

Part One


Later, Dante says, he and his friends drove to the party. Dante and the assistant's boyfriend were let in, but Jakon and Ronnie were rejected and stayed outside. Dante says Lindsay was never without a drink during the evening and he even did a shot with her.

At one point, Lindsay's assistant and her boyfriend walked outside and got into an argument. Lindsay came out and got angry at her assistant. The assistant then said, "I quit," which enraged Lindsay.

Part Two


Ronnie says Lindsay looked "very messed up" and "raging."

Dante and crew were ready to leave. The GMC Denali they were in belonged to Dante, but he was sitting in the front passenger seat. Ronnie and Jakon were in the back seat. The assistant's boyfriend was behind the wheel. The keys were in the ignition when the assistant's boyfriend got out and continued the argument with his girlfriend. She then got in her car and left.

According to the group, Lindsay suddenly jumped in the driver's seat of the Denali, started the engine and began driving -- chasing the assistant's car. Ronnie says he was so fearful, he jumped out of the vehicle as it accelerated. Just as he hit the ground, he says Lindsay ran over his foot and just kept going.

Dante and Jakon say Lindsay then hit Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. Dante says he tried to grab the wheel, prompting Lindsay to say, "If you touch me I'll sue you." Jakon says they pleaded with her to stop.

Part Three


Dante says they were going 100 mph. They say Lindsay caught up with the assistant and began doing circles on PCH, around the assistant's car.

They say at one point, Lindsay boasted, "I can't get in trouble. I'm a celebrity. I can do whatever the f*** I want."

Part Four


The now former assistant finally lost Lindsay on PCH. Dante says Lindsay thought the assistant was going to her mother's house in Santa Monica so Lindsay went there. It just so happened that the assistant's mother was pulling into the driveway as Lindsay arrived.

Dante says the mother panicked at Lindsay's crazy driving, and backed out of the driveway in fear -- not knowing who was behind the wheel. The guys say Lindsay then began to chase her at speeds of up to 80 mph through Santa Monica, blowing multiple red lights.

Dante realized the mother was driving to the police station and warned Lindsay if she didn't stop she'd get in hot water. He says Lindsay responded, "I'm a celebrity. I'm not going to get in trouble."

The two cars stopped in a parking lot near the cop shop. When police arrived, Dante says it seemed as if Lindsay told officers, "I wasn't driving. The black kid was driving."

Dante and Jakon say they saw Lindsay flunk the field sobriety test. They say when she tried touching her nose, she almost fell over.

As Ronnie put it "It was pretty much the worst night of my whole summer."

Lohan's reps had no comment.

The story makes no sense at all.

First of all, what did the two guys do out in the car for however long this party lasted. Did they drink? Were they impaired?

Second, why would the owner of a Denali let someone else drive -- even if he is LL's assistant's boyfriend? Most guys have a pride of ownership.

Third, what did LL mean by" "If you touch me, I'll sue?" Sue for what?

Fourth, why would the assistant's mother back out of HER OWN DRIVEWAY when a supposedly drug-crazed actress came down the street at 100 mph? Most women in fear of their lives would go inside or call the police from the front seat.

Fifth, why would the mother ENGAGE in a 80-100 mph car race? Is that something most people do?

Sixth, why does the person on the widely-distributed 911 call NEVER say she is being chased by Lindsay Lohan -- or even a woman? You would think she would say SOMETHING about it for crissake!

Seventh, why does the woman on the 911 car keep talking about "the gentleman who jumped out of the car" when she (supposedly) WASN'T EVEN AT THE PARTY. Or did the mother go to the party and sit around.

Eighth, why should the world believe the story of a guy who has everything to lose by having someone in his car (allegedly) with cocaine in the pocket?

Ninth, why would someone with only a .12 blood alcohol content -- which, in the old days would have only been past the legal drunkenness level in many states -- have been so out of control but in control enough to be called "cooperative" at the Santa Monica jail and even cooperative enough to have been let out that very same night -- even if she is Lindsay Lohan.

Something doesn't make sense here.

She needs to be sent to jail and forced into rehab with no special "needs". If she really said she wont get in trouble because she is a celebrity, that is all the more reason she needs to get into trouble and be punished. Nobody is taking this seriously, not even her parents which think its a joke. Sad.

Can someone from the Los Angeles County D.A.'s office please explained why L.L. is still on the streets?.......L.L. stole a car (grand theft auto) a felony....took hostages (kidnapping) a felony and a federal crime......along with reckless driving (100 mph), possesion of a controled subtance and stalking....if Suzy Q. Public committed these same very serious CRIMES she would be in custody and facing at least a $10 million dollar bond...if in fact....a judge would even allow bail...I think all law abiding citizens should be pissed off that our criminal justice system in Southern California is so corrupt and unjust.

1437: Uhhhhh.... maybe because... this story is all heresay and a load of crap? Oh, and completely fabricated by the three stooges and the whiny assistant and her attention-seeking mother. The fault is not with the police or the District Attorney or even the Court. They are going by the EVIDENCE and interviews... and by what they actually BELIEVE happened that night. I am sure if they could support more charges against Lindsay, they would be more than happy to oblige. Fortunately, they don't make s**t up that never happened. Don't be so gullible and believe everything you read in the National Enquirer or TMZ. The more they sensationalize a story and create controversy, the better it sells. Give the Cops and Lindsay the benefit of the doubt. Sooner or later, bulls**t always falls apart.

As a body language expert.... THESE DUDES ARE TELLING THE TRUTH! Do they look or sound like they were lying? What did they practice their stories before the interview? I think not. That sick girl needs to go to Jail for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time , nothing Paris, or Nicole did has anything on this incident , PLUS its her second DUI. And she showed NO consideration for anybodys safety but her own. I hope the judge gives her the maximum on every count she is charged with. She has NO excuses.

There are a few irrefutable things about this story whether you believe dumb, dumber and dumberer or not: LL was legally intoxicated, she was driving a car while legally intoxicated and it's her second DUI in as many months. Whatever lies may be told, whatever money may change hands, these facts will not change and if you, I or any other Jane/Joe Average did the exact same thing we would do time. Not three days or three months either. Additionally, she tested positive for coke which doesn't stay in your system for long so it's likely that she was on more than alcohol when all of this occurred. Even if these three guys didn't have their own tales to tell, she should still go to jail. Maybe she would be a better person for it...it seemed to work for Paris.

Did anyone learn from Anna Nicole's death?

This child obviously NEEDS intervention!
That's it, stop her from killing herself and others.

Sounds pretty racist if she did say it, poor thang.
