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."

The Judge    

Ms. Lohan is simply beyond remption as a vehicle driver as well as an responsible, mature individual. Unfortunately, she truly believes that rules of civil conduct as well motor vehicle laws simply do not apply to her as a "celebrity". Her attempt to shift blame to the only minority person in the vehicle is beyond defense or any consideration.

Hopefully, the police, the prosecutor and the court will once and for all time treat Lohan as they would treat any other individual driver who operates their vehicle in a recklessly negligent manner, at very high speeds while under the influence of drugs and alcohol. A lesson has to be established and enforced without any prefential custodial treatment. It was only a matter of sheer luck that Lohan did not kill or maim several other passengers in her vehicle or any other innocent motorists or pedestrians in her path.

It's so obvious that these guys made up the story just to get some media attention. I don't believe she is 100% innocent but I'm sure that's not how it all happened. How sad.

I feel for her but it looks as if another celebrity has her own drug/alcohol problems to deal with. Only a good, solid rehab and some jail time will probably straighten her out. At least I hope so. If that doesn't happen, I'm afraid she'll end up killing herself somehow, or worse, someone else. Call her all the names you want; she's just a lost soul at the moment. But something needs to be done immediately for her own (and others safety).

She's a spoiled brat like Britney. I could care less about either of them but do care about the innocent people they could hurt. The courts need to make an example out of these idiots so it will stop. Blaming "the black guy" just shows how much of a low life she really is.

When there are so many REALLY important things going on, why must we be subjected to almost-daily reports on the pitiful life of a super-rich, narcisstic smart mouth who truly believes she is above the law? Other young celebs like her, namely Brittany and Paris, are so self-centered and used to having adoring fans bow down at their feet they can't believe that rules and laws apply to them! Perhaps money CAN buy them out of trouble but eventually even money won't be able to dig them out of the hole they put themselves into. You can only kill a person ONCE and whether it was accidental or not,all the money in the world cannot bring back someone who's been the unfortunate victim of her deadly driving-while-drunk condition. If her parents and friends truly love her, they will have her confined in a hospital or other facility until she has proven tht she has changed her ways. And the facility has to be one that is serious about helping, not some fancy spa-like place who is more interested in the fee they can get, as well as the publicity. She needs to be in a program for at least 6 months to a year, not a week, thirty days or whatever SHE thinks is adequate for her. She's a young woman with many years ahead of her but she's never going to see those years unless she receives the help she so sadly needs.

Its amazing that they allow celebs to get away with what they get away with.

I think that the Paris Hilton case gave the wrong message to all of them. Her time in so called prison which really was jail, was cut short and by all means way to short. Had it happened to any of us unknowns we would still be in jail.

Had any of us had our child sitting on our laps while driving, they would have taken the child and out them in a foster home, yet Brittney still has her child. What message is being given? Not a good one.

The silver spoon has given these kids and I mean kids a way out. The silver spoon useto mean something good, now its a ticket out of jail. Something needs to change these kids are heading into a world of excuses and bad things are going to happen to them. I wish they would go to a real rehab and not the silverspoon hotel.

People need to give her a break, she's a Celebrity, she should be treated like a Queen.Whatever she does should be brushed off as just having fun. Look at Mike Jackson, he gets away with anything.

Hope they enjoyed their 15 minutes of fame.
