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.

Tough questions do not require answers, and if they did the majority of politicians would never get into office. Move along now.

Judge sautner cant take her off probation if there is a hit and run case pending..(she probably will anyway).
and there is a case..If he went to the emergency room, some one has to be held accountable.whos going to pay for it?
there is a police report so dont be surprised if she has a warrant issued...If Holley is already talking to the probation office, and lindsay is preparing stories..its going to be a rogh 24 HRS for her...
just like the theft case "It is a mistunderstanding,and nothing will happen"WRONG

Someone just wants to sue Lindsay so they can get some of her money. Stars are held on a higher level, they can get away with things like this. Just leave Lindsay alone, she didn't do anything wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wonder what the situation will be by the of the day?

Regardless, Lindsay has caused damage to herself that she will not be able to change. She told Matt Lauer that she does not club anymore.....really? Leaving a club on a Wednesday? She just outed herself as a liar big time and anyone that is considering trusting her where money is concerned may want to take a closer look at Lindsay Lohan and her claims.

And the Lindsay Lohan cycle starts anew. Clubs, car crashes, thefts, mug shots, court appearances, apologies, t.v. appearances declaring she's changed and hates the club life followed by clubs, crashes, thefts, mug shots, court appearances, apologies... ad nauseam infinitum. This chick is nothing if not predictable.

Like making a bunch of new pro Lindsay commenters is going to make a difference? Why bother? Her reputation is in the toilet.

Legally I'm sure nothing will happen to her but I do take pleasure in that she has proven, to all in the business that matter, that she is a liar and has not changed even a little bit. Lindsay...NO JOBS FOR YOU!!!

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

OK, she fled the scene AGAIN and she switched seats with someone else which is the identical, 'the black kid was driving' or 'they were my assistants pants' excuse. Boring. Lohan, Inc. needs a new spiel. 'Homebody Lohan' strikes again!
