'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.

Oh WOW......
I love how TMZ edited my post where I confirmed these three chumps to be drug addicts and possible suppliers. WTF is that all about????

And someone explain to me how Ronnie Flake jumps out and gets his foot ran over? Is this even possible? Or did he put his foot under the car intentionally if it's even true? If you jump out of a car, you are not gonna get your foot ran over. This is just another mystery in these three BS'ers story.

Ronnie Blake, YOU ARE A CHUMP and a yellow bellied pie slinger.

I know Ronnie does not have a job or an education. All three of these losers are worthless. Add to that the fact that all three are habitual drug users and possibly supplied LL with drugs. 3 wannabe gangsters and the one who thinks he is the baddest (Ronnie) jumps out of the car like a puss? Get real. All three are worthless, uneducated, money-hungry jerkoffs.

Oh and these chumps are not "men". Ronnie is about 21 or 22 and the other cowards are about the same.

Forgot to add,
In person, Ronnie Blake thinks he is some big bad dude. He is not big nor bad and I am beginning to question whether he is a dude. That gay porn star goatee looks a little fake on my screen. Ronnie is a womans name too you know?

So this guy thinks hes bad and can't be messed with, yet he cowars away from Lindsay Lohan and jumps out of the car like a frantic sissy? That makes me LMAO. What a bunch of girls.

Who cares if she kills herself driving, I just feel sorry for the ones who are in the car with her or crossing the street.

If Lindsay had God in her life, she would not be the way she is. She's a lost soul.

The truly amazing thing about all these paparazzi celebrities--Britney, Lindsay, Paris, and of course, Anna Nicole (may she rest in peace)--is that not one of them has any substantial, self-sustaining talent. Britney? She sure as hell is no Christina Aguilara. Lindsay? Some people call her "talented" yet she has never acted in a four star film. They've all been frothy throwaways. Now she's starring in one of the worst films in Hollywood history. You call that talent? As for Paris and Anna Nicole, the less said the better. Can Lindsay ever bounce back and resume her acting career? Maybe, but she needs to spend at the very least a year in rehab, and not one of those plush Malibu "rehab centers" either, but a genuine, austere, hardcore rehab. On the other hand, most of these programs are doomed to fail because they're based on the Alcoholics Anonymous 12-Steps, one of the deadliest con games ever devised. AA has a miserable 5% success rate, i.e., a 95% failure rate. No wonder Lindsay's attempts to get sober have failed!

P.S. to my previous comment: The boys who were in the car with Lindsay are obviously telling the truth. There is no way, I repeat, no way they could ever get away with such a lie. Remember, their were other witnesses at the scene who also saw Lindsay jump behind the wheel of that SUV. There is not one inconsistency in their stories. I challenge the few Lindsay supporters still out there to find one single flaw in their story. They are simply not sophisticated enough to sustain such a massive lie.

To JohnnySoCal, what do you do for a living and what do you look like?

To the people who keep using the unkind pronouns when referring to this really messed up person, just guessing, but I bet you are really frustrated people who don't have much going on.
If it wasn't for the media, I wouldn't even know who Lindsay is. I have never paid to see a movie she has been in. Have you?
I hope she straightens up before she kills herself or someone else. And yes, I think she should be sentenced to some kind of treatment.
As for the guys involved, they were just wanting to hang with the Lindsay crowd. They weren't sitting in a church parking lot. I am sure they'll get money from all this.
TO YOU PEOPLE WHO WISH HER DEAD or worse yet the FREAKS who get off on posting what they would like to do to her - I think you ALL need to be locked up! When people say "there are a lot of wierdos out there," they mean YOU.
You know Lindsay's name but she will never know you even exist.....And when you die, what will your obituary say? It will only be news is you are ran over by Lindsay.

So ole Lindsey is playing the "race card"... pathetic little witch! When's she going to learn to take some personal responsibility in her life?

Lindsey Lowlife Lohan's acting career is over. "I can't get in trouble. I'm a celebrity. I can do whatever the f*** I want." What a vain & self centered, spoiled child. What she needs is a good swift kick in the behind! I will never see or support any movie she appears in. I am now throwing away the Mean Girls DVD in the trash.

trust me probably 80% of the story is bogus. if it is true details from this story can not be hidden. If she was driving that crazy a lot of people would of called in randomly to the PD.
Does anyone know that number? If she did do this she should be punished. If not the people that are witnesses might be looking for a handout (foot ran over)? WHO KNOWS

Ok... ok... Now, stop all the BS for just a minute! Ok... close your eyes and try real hard to reconnect your brainstems. There... now scroll up to the top of the page and then start back down and carefully look at all the pictures. How is Lindsay depicted in them (and I mean ALL of them!)? Now... how are the three stooges depicted in the pictures? WOW!!! There is not one flattering pic of Lindsay! Every freaking one of them portrays her as an out-of-control, angry and intoxicated... maybe even "crazy" nutball. Hmmmmm... the three stoges are all portrayed as well dressed, very normal, nice looking, victim wannabees. Noooow.... is this a fair and balanced report... or, is this a one-sided, anything-to-whip up-controversy, sensationalized, trash-on-Lindsay, media money maker? How can anybody with a "normal and reasonable" mind, believe a single word of this trash?

I am absolutely certain that all of you need to step back and re-examine your knee-jerk opinions. If you believe any of this, then you probably believe everything they say on American Idol to stir controversy. Remember... controversy sells. Who cares if it's BS?

...and I am not even a fan of spoiled celebrities. Please, try and not be so gullible. The media is making money off all of you!
