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.

The manager may have been trying to get between her vehicle and the paparazzi to help her get away and she bumped him, possibly while she had her head turned in an attempt to avoid the paparazzi on the other side of her car. Also, she may very well have asked him if he was okay through her car window as she drove away, making it not "fleeing the scene." I am usually not too quick to defend Lilo, but there is not yet enough information available to the public for it to label this incident a hit and run.

can somebody explain to me what a hit and run is ? In europe its when you scratch or damage a car e, even a parked one without leaving your informations . well then there is no scratch on his car good for her but if there is she should be busted.
Is there another law for hit and run in the US than to stay at the scene when you damage a car for insurance information so you pay for it .

I thought she didn't like going to clubs any longer and was a homebody now.

She won't last a week after being off probation.

Oh lord TMZ, take away your dramatic writing and what do we have? Lindsay Lohan left the Hooklah, paps surrounding her car, she calls the cops, manager trying to help her leave, in the flashing pap cameras, the car brushes him, she left. Cops arrive, no injury, no complaint, end of story!

So not only does she look like an old lady now thanks to bad plastic surgery, smoking, drugs and tons of drinking.. but she drives like an old lady now too.

I thought she just told Matt Lauer on the Today Show that going out to clubs wasn't her thing anymore. LOL. Idiot. Same OLD Lindsay.

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

Was that the same new Porsche that has one entire side gouged out from sideswiping another car earlier?

Seriously wtf    

JFC it was probably the paps who called the cops trying to drum up a story. Obviously the manager didn't feel the need to call the cops. This story just pisses me off. Yea, I am not a big fan of Lindsey but she has been trying to straighten out. Give her a friggin' chance for a change. TOO MUCH.
