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.

Radar is reporting that if she is charged with the hit and run it would be a misdemeanor.

Oh, I had to come out of retirement for THIS one!

Hit-and-run is hit and run. It doesn't matter if someone is hurt or not. If this gentleman has an ER report saying he has as much as a fresh BRUISE, or if his car has as much as a teeny, tiny ding, it is hot and run, period.

She switched seats because she was wasted.

She escaped the DUI, but probably not the criminal charges. Again, if he or his property was hurt in any way, she is in trouble. We all know nothing will happen to her, but it will be just one more nail in her career coffin.

Also, once a warrant is executed and the DA accepts the charges against her, the guy hit has no control over the charges. He can get paid off and refuse to cooperate, and the DA can drop the case, but he can't have criminal charges dropped, because the State is the victim. If a warrant is executed for her, it will be very interesting to see what this does to her probation.

I loathe sociopathic scofflaws.

Misdemeanor hit and run is limited to property damage. When it involves injury it is a felony.

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

Even if this incident happened AFTER March 29th, she'd still be in trouble. 'Formal' probation ends and 'summary' begins. If they charge her, she still would be in violation, regardless. I think the term 'obey all laws' definetely pertains to 'hit and run'.

Should this guy make trouble for her wouldn't that be a probation violation? Lohan is to get in NO TROUBLE whatsoever.


There she goes again not taking responsibility for her actions. My, my, my how she boasts and braggs on how much she's changed. Not one bit. Lohan don't wait by the phone for those job offers that won't come.

How To Clean Up The Culture and Save Society:


1. Stitch Lindsay into a water buffalo suit and toss her over the fence into the Trump brothers backyard.
2. Execute Nicole
2(b). Revive Nicole at the last minute and execute her again. Just for kicks.
3. Use that dirty needle to execute Remy.
4. Staple shut every orifice on every Kardashian. Go back in a week and sweep the remains into a dustpan.
5. Feed the dustpan contents to Lindsay supporters and enablers. Not only are they accustomed to a diet of BS, it's good for the environment.
6. Superglue modest clothing onto Rihanna.
7. Sew Dina Lohan into a gazelle suit and throw her from a helicopter into the middle of the Serengeti.
8. Turn TMZ over to andy and vorlan.
