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.

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

Jeebus, I think Jill may be correct about an investigation being completed before her probation is revoked and I only say that because of the Holland assualt investigation. Her probation wasn't revoked then and when the cops determined 'no case', the matter was essentially dropped.

Lindsay come back to NYC , listen to me. Over there any idiot now calls TMZ on anything and the fun comes when they actually publish it (anything). Come back to NYC , where all the adults go.

Even if the worst-case scenario is true, I doubt that it will affect her probation progress hearing this month. The judge can't do anything unless Lindsay is actually charged. I doubt that the police would move that fast in their investigation. They have to find sufficient evidence to take it further and I doubt that this type of case is top priority. If they decide it's not a clear cut hit and run (even if a definite hit), they may not pursue it. She probably has more to fear from a civil lawsuit if the guy has verifiable injuries.

I feel kind of bad for her. It seems like she doesn't have anyone in her life that is making any real effort to stop her crazy and contradicting behavior. But on the other hand she is an adult who should be making better decisions for herself. So close to being off probation and she decides to go to a club?! She is definitely not running on all cylinders here.

Its ridiculous that these people crowd around her car, blind drivers with flashes....i think she should hit more people. as far as the manager of the place goes, i bet she didnt even realize she struck him. these people put themeselves in danger. i doubt she was under the influence. its not like she was swerving and barreling into cars. she really probably didnt notcie since this guy was 'lightly struck" and there were probably 50 paps around her car. lets give this girl a break.

I am not saying that Lindsay hasn't had her problems but this guy is just trying to jump on the bandwagon because he found out who grazed him. Give this girl a break already she has been through enough.
