Assault Investigation

In Lohan Car Incident

1/10/2010 2:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's car struck a photog this morning, and her driver is now a person of interest in a criminal assault with a deadly weapon investigation.

The incident occurred at 12:30 AM in front The Hotel Cafe in Hollywood. Lindsay's driver was behind the wheel of her BMW when it made contact with the paparazzo.

The photog was not taken to the hospital

Lindsay is not a suspect -- though she was reportedly inside the car during the incident.

Ironically, it was Lindsay's assistant that reported the incident.

According to X17, the photog (pictured below in the Jack Daniels shirt) injured his hand and was treated by EMTs who arrived on scene.

I am not a Lindsay Lohan fan by any means. Leaving a Cafe', how shocking, if there were one celeb who should have been on the third edition of VH1's Celebrity Rehab with Dr Drew it's good ole' Lindsay. That said, how is it that this paparazzo hurt his hand? It's because he was dangerously too close to the vehicle. These paparazzos should be outlawed, take some time and click through the TMZ videos on the site. You will find that these paparazzos are crude and rude.

Lindsay was inside the Hotel Cafe (probably to see supernova Lucas Rossi, or Ferras) looking like a white skeleton with sunken eyes and over bleached hair. She had her nose in the air the entire time, so arrogant. How she is even considered a celebrity paps would want to waste time on is beyond me! People certainly dont have an interest in her. Total loser.

Ever hear of Darwin? Anyone stupid enough to stand in front of a moving car should be taken out of the gene pool.

When I have enough money to have someone drive my car that person will be well dressed and fit. When will these Hollywood showcases realize that being surounded by sleezey looking security and such does nothing for their image?

FOR SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO CHANGE AND GO IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION IN THE NEW YEAR , THIS IS NOT THE WAY TO DO IT. FIRE THAT DRIVER AND HELP THAT MAN IS WHAT LINDSEY SHOULD DO,AND NEEDS TO GROW UP AS WELL. ACCEPT HER MISTAKES, AND THE MISTAKES OF THE ONES WHO WORK FOR HER.

Why should Lindsay help that man? The only help that man needs is Jenny Craig and a real job. From listening to him, I doubt he's 'legal' anyway. This is 100% NOT her fault, nor her driver's fault.

Being a paparazzi is no more of a job than a drug dealer. They're just low-life's who couldn't succeed at a real job. I'm guessing he's probably drawing a disability check from somewhere and is doing the 'razzi thing for extra cash.

Interesting...

The pap is hiding his face with his hand from all the camera's while being interviewed by L.A.'s finest...

How does it feel to have the shoe on the other foot... or hand, as the case may be?

Not so great is it - having a bunch of paparazzi taking your photograph whether you like it or now, is it??

Payback...
