'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.

Parents Need to Know    

So I guess tomorrow morning we'll get Lindsay's Assistant's spin on this!

Then the Assistant's mother's side, then the Assistant's father will jump on the bandwagon.

Then the Assistant's brothers & sisters will call TMZ.

TMZ will be covering this longer than seeing Parasite's mug - hell, we're still seeing her everyday on here, either clubbing, shopping, buying a new "dog" accessory, posing, etc.

Put Lindsay in jail. She's too delusional denying and blaming everyone else, she's past rehab help.

ok so as much as i HATE and LOATHE lindsay this story doesn't ring right
-dante was so nervous telling the story and his leg was shaking throughout the interview. if you are telling the truth there is no reason to be nervous.
-someone is wasted and scaring you but you allow her to reach over and get the keys to your car? and you are not able to stop her? if she was that drunk/high/ out of it i bet his sober-ish motor skills were A LOT better than hers
-it is impossible to 'run circles' around someone on pch. what does that even mean? that road is so narrow, 2 lanes the ocean on one side and cliffs on the other.
-the woman in the 911 call said that a man jumped out and yelled at her, that was left out of their story.
-what mom is pulling out of their driveway at 1am? i know my mom isnt.
-why would dumbass say the black guy was driving if he jumped out before the car even took off?

if dante wasnt so weird and nervous while harvey was talking to him i would have maybe believed it but he doesnt seem credible.

Someone Respond To This, Because I Rarely Post    

YES. This is always my contention. I think everyone gets on the defense and starts weaving webs.
It is NEVER the case that one person is completely guilty and the other completely innocent. If you are gulity/innocent you will do what it takes to exaggerate your case and get the public to believe you. Thats natural no matter who is in the right/wrong.
Innocence is lost and its sad that we are even wasting our brainspace, I don't know about you guys, but I am embarrassed to even be posting such nonsense.
Yet here we are, and really they win and we lose.
They are doing what they do-- entertaining. Keeping us talking. And posting. And obsessing.
Damn them...............

I believe them. They all should sue her, not just the guy with the hurt foot. She should get six months minimum, and I'm talking at the one room "Hilton" not some rehab, though she needs that too and badly.

To 83 they are lying

Actually Dante said he jumped out of the truck and was trying to tell the assistant not to drive away because he knew Lindsay would chase her again. He said the assistant was a good friend and he was afraid for her. This is obviously when the mother said a guy jumped out of the truck.

Glub glub glub glub glub are going dowwwnnnnnnnnn.

Buck up and own some of your actions. You can't keep blaming others for all the "fun" you're having. This is ANOTHER wake up call. Lucky you haven't killed yourself or any one else. Or sadly, maybe that's what it'll take..................
