Lohan Driver -- Zero to Dangerous in 2.5 Secs

1/10/2010 4:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan didn't even have a chance to buckle up before her driver gunned it down an alley last night -- allegedly tagging a photog so hard, he needed medical attention.

As we previously reported, Lindsay's driver is now a person of interest in a criminal assault with a deadly weapon investigation.

Somebody , shoot it! Quick!    

Lohan's asst.waved and blewher horn.

NOOOOOO, he wanted to take one last shot, worhtless shot.

THe driver did not mean to do which says a lot because she had no malice intent .

She blew her horn. This guy did not step away.

She did not go 0 to 60 in a second either.
Fatty Photogbuckle was in the wrong.

Knowwhat else is wrong, this guy used OUR FireFighters/Recuse for a nothing situation...his stupidity.

That costs taxpayers money.
The guy was so fat , he could hardly pull himself up in the fire/rescue truck
Think about that.

No Way    

I don't care what you think about the slimy paps(and they are). You can't accelerate (twice) like that while people are surrounding your car. If you look at the tape, she hit more people than the fat guy (watch the windshield). Then after hitting them, she leaves the scene of the accident at a high rate of speed. Bad judgement. I'm glad one of us didn't step out in front of her in that alley when she was at top speed. Plus, she's with Lindsay Lohan! Do you really think you're not going to have to deal with the paparazzi when you go outside?? They were there when you entered!! She will be prosecuted and rightly so.

He didn't look hurt to me. And if he was hurt, how could he have the presents of mind to snap another picture after the car SUPPOSEDLY hit him. Look at the clip. After the hit. He stands by while the car speeds past and he snaps yet another picture in the passenger side window.

Hes thinking law suit. You can tell hes full of crap.The girl driving should of stopped when you here something hitting the car. Even if its his fault she has a better chance at defending his false claim.Bad move on her part. He will prob. when a law suit and she could go to jail for hit and run. If the police went in side and investgate and she was drinking shes in trouble.

I heard he mentioned something in a different report that the driver shouldn't be wearing sunglasses in the dark. But if you ever had a camera flash hit your eyes you'd have a hard time driving. If you have a ton of flashes going off imagine without sunglasses. I'm sure she takes them off once they get away from the flashing. Having said that. The driver should have pulled away much slower that wasn't a lot of warning with a quick honk at the same time she guns it. I think they both did something wrong here and are at equal fault. He seems to be over doing it with the pain factor unless he really did break bones. Driver should know better though that these people are looking for easy money and take more precautions.

The driver is wearing sun glasses because of all the lights form the flashing lights from you *ssholes taking pics of them. The inside of the car is lite up like it is 2 in the afternoon and it is clearly late night.

I understand these Photogs need to make a living, we all do, however, most are disrespectful and have no regard for personal space. In many cases they have been the cause of accidents, and some deaths due to their careless ways. I think the public (famous and non-famous) are tired of it. If you stand in front of a running vehicle, chances are you will be hit. A simple rule is if you want respect, you have to show respect.

An aware mom    

If you watch the video very carefully and watch the footage piece by piece... you will see that the "photographer" (and I use the term loosely) is actually standing by that silver car as the BMW is speeding away. I don't see where she could have hit that guy, and I didn't here a great big thud as there would be with a man that size. How many times did that girl go over the same spot on his hand before he finally said ow. If you ask me... it is about the money, and I think that the police should charge him with filing a false police report. As for the sunglasses in the car at night... it would be worse being blinded by all those flashes going off in your face, and then take them off.

He still tried to take a picture AFTER he was " supposedly " injured.Did you catch that ?!?

I agree , the car was not flying like a bat out of hell Steve , I saw the video on X17 and she was maybe going 10MPH max.
Does not matter what we say though, of course tmz is going to say that she was driving fast for fear that this will further enforce the new bill that was passed with the help of Jennifer Aniston about paps and staying a number of feet away .
This would further hurt tmz's business , as every year after the first year since they launched the revenues have been dropping. If it were not for all the Michael Jackson coverage , they would have never cleared 25M in ad sales this year , it would have been under 10M.
So tmz naturally has to put a spin that it was the driver's fault by saying she was driving like a bat out of hell which is moot , as no judge in the world will award that pathetic pap smear one dime.
As for tmz's venture into sports , rots o ruck.
Thank you and please drive through.

I hope I'm wrong but this guy will sue, it will be settled out of court and he (hopefully) will stay home eating cheetos and Blutoburgers, farting into his cr@ppy shorts until he can't move outta his chair ever again. The world will be a better place once this @ss is no longer able to harass people in public.
It should be a wake-up call to all aggressive paps everywhere to get the h*ll outta the way when people try to leave in their cars!! But when they can sue instead of work at a decent job, well... why not?? Seems to be the American way.
