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 a chauffeur and the paparazzi are ruthless. If you don't inch your car forward they won't let you move. The blind you with flashbulbs and it can get really crazy. I was in the Hollywood Hills outside a party, waiting on my client, the street was very narrow. All of a sudden an suv drove up, and right behind it was to cars flying. They stopped in the middle of the street, jumped out, and start flashing away, with no regard for traffic, people, or safety.

I bet next time we see this photog he's in a neck brace and wheel chair represented by Lionel Hutz with his doc Nick Riviera by his side.

Please...it's time that the law does something about the paparazzi endangering the celebrities; and bringing frilous law suits! That photog should be charged with endangering lives!

Ole Lindsey used to be such a cute young lady, what the hell happened to her. I actually pointed to her as how not to lead your life to my two daughters. "This is what happens when you lead a hard life". Nobody likes you, you have no money and you wind up looking like woman that has been rode hard and put up wet.

Most likely the papparazi guy doesn't have a case. If he jumped in front of the car (to take a photo) as it was driving off, then her lawyers can prove it was his fault. Its almost always the papparazi's fault when they get hurt. He's probably hoping for a settlement.

From the photo, it appears he has a case, he injured his handout hand, his pizza lifting hand, his Jenny Craig turning down hand, and his shaving and bathing hand too..... Worth millions I tell ya.

THESE PEOPLE ARE IDIOTS (PAPS), IF THEY'D STAY OUT OF A CARS WAY THEY WOULDN'T GET HURT, BUT THEY PUT THEIR OWN IGNORANT SELVES IN DANGER TO GET A PHOTO THAT MIGHT GET THEM A COUPLE OF DOLLARS. NEXT TIME I HOPE HER DRIVER REALLY GETS THEM. THERE SHOULD BE A LAW AGAINST STALKING THESE STARS THE WAY THEY DO
