11:15 AM:
Lindsay took to her Twitter this morning to combat the allegations -- calling the hit-and-run accusation "a complete lie."

6:06 AM: The plot thickens ... Sources tell us, the manager who Lindsay struck has gone to the emergency room and we're told he is going to press charges and hire an attorney. Cops told us they will open a hit-and-run investigation if the manager files a report. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the 26-year-old manager was standing by his car when Lindsay was attempting a 3-point turn and she grazed his knee and his car. We're told the manager didn't know who Lindsay was at first and he told the paparazzi on scene and police that he didn't need medical attention. Cops say he was told the driver was Lindsay but he said he wasn't from this country and didn't know who she was. We're told a short time later he began complaining he was injured.

TMZ spoke to an eyewitness who also says the manager was fine and actually "got up and started smoking his hookah."

3:15 AM:  Cops tell TMZ ... they have investigated and determined no one was injured so as far as they are concerned it's case closed. They added it could be reopened if the person struck contacts them later and claims injury.

Lindsay Lohan
struck someone while driving away from a club, and then fled the scene ... TMZ has learned.

Lindsay was in her new Porsche when she left the Sayers Club in Hollywood at just after midnight Wednesday. 

We're told she was driving out of the parking lot when she was blocked by paparazzi and bystanders around the nearby Hookah Lounge. 

Lindsay made contact with the manager of the Hookah Lounge with her car and then peeled out.

Cops were called, came to the scene, interviewed people inside the Hookah Lounge -- including the manager who was lightly struck -- and then left.

We're told Lindsay may have been the one who called police to protect herself from paparazzi, and that's why cops came.

Sources at the scene say the manager may not have suffered any injury. If that's the case, Lindsay probably did not violate any law, but if he was injured that could constitute the crime of hit-and-run.  What's more, it could be grounds to violate her probation in the shoplifting case.

Did you hear that?
It's the faint sound of light soft wrist slap for this depraved monster in human form.

Did she flee because she was under the influence of some substance? Guilty people flee and run.

Oh well. The headline and story don't align. If she was trying to avoid the paps - then why go to a Hollywood club in the first place. She is so close to being off probation. Why risk it? If her car was swarmed by paps and she was trying to call police to help her, how is it that "she struck someone" and then fled? More likely, the manager wouldn't get out of the way of her car as she was "inching" the vehicle to get away. She is so stupid to constantly set herself up for problems. If going to clubs causes you to have multiple mug shots and court dates and you are too frickin stupid to stay away from the clubs, then you have "set yourself" up for failure.

The enablers should be here in 3...2...1... claiming it's not her fault, it's the paps fault for getting in her way. You know, because that excuses you from hitting someone. That someone wasn't even a pap, no less!

.. Again,with the STUPID LEACH ASS PAPPARAZZI!!! Look, I know she is not a saint,and neither am I,but them people are sick people who stalk and then cry when they get their foot run over...Well,you should not have been trying to block her or take pictures without her consent..These laws need to change in the USA completely. If I were someone like Eddie Van Halen,or Jimmy Page,you know,famous, I'd make the uncool annoying "in your face" papparazzi literally EAT the headstock of my guitar and then take a picture of them with my foot up their ass as well..Sorry,it sounds as if those jerk offs are trying to GET her in trouble and the owner wants a piece of the action too,so he'll say she hit him...HE WAS BLOCKING HER CAR FOR THEM IDIOTS AND WAS TRYING TO LEAVE QUICKLY!!!If I believe Linsay called the cops...good move to protect yourself..Enough of putting this girl down,WE ARE ONLY HUMAN!!!Ask yourself,when you were a child,when you fell,wasn't it hard to get up? Well,sometimes in the adult world,it's the same way and she has done well...until now who knows...Papparazzo...who the hell came up with that stupid name. That's not even a USA term for them in reality! They are defined in my world as called "PESTS" OR "PEASANTS"&"LEACHES. FTW the way it is today....hmmmm I wish someone would be a retaliating cool celeb and do the same thing to one of those paparazzo's by coming up to them when they are hanging with their parents or messing around with someone while they already had a few...This world IS NOT PRIVATE!!!! PEACE RULES!!!
