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.

Give me a break! This guy was perfectly fine until he found out who it was!!!!! Someone got in his ears after he told the truth about not being hurt and convinced him to act like he was for attention and money. S*** like that should be the ones sued!

Love this Gal......the Stir...

Apparently it was "sometime after midnight" when Lohan was trying to leave Sayer's Club in her Porsche. Apparently there was a crowd of paparazzi outside. Apparently this made it difficult for Lohan to effectively navigate her luxury automobile. Apparently she ended up hitting the manager of the club next door with her car as she attempted to flee ... and apparently she drove away without checking to see if he was okay first.

Apparently Lindsay Lohan has learned nothing. Either that, or she's secretly trying to win some kind of award for "widest range of criminal offenses."

Lindsay, Lindsay, Lindsay. What's to be done? That SNL hosting gig didn't exonerate her in quite the way she'd hoped. Ditching the platinum "Blondie" locks and going back to her original redhead status was definitely a good move, but I guess changing your hair color isn't the same thing as changing your stripes.

And now she's got the hit-and-run thing to add to her rap sheet. This latest slip could even screw up her terms of probation -- if, that is, the guy whose leg she "grazed" with her Porsche files a complaint. (He said he was fine at first, but once he realized who was behind the wheel, his leg started to hurt. Hmmm.)

I really think the best thing for Lohan to do at this point is to go into some kind of celebrity witness protection program. Maybe join the Peace Corps. Live on the moon. Hell, I don't know -- but whatever she does, it should be well out of the public eye.

THAT'S LIES !!! LINDSAY LOHAN POSTED ON TWITTER : Scrape? This is all a complete lie. I've been at community service. Last night, I attempted to wish a friend happy birthday, which I didn't even get to do because I was freaked out by all of the paparazzi. These false accusations are absurd.

its pretty simple to turn your life around if you avoid bad situations. she should not be in bar clubbing at midnight.
i thought that was her whole schtick. i know many reformed drinkers. They simply avoid those situations.
not getting out to check the man is a red flag.
it doesnt sound like he or his car had injury.
two losers dont make a winner. how come charlie sheen wasnt involved?

Lies, lies, lies from this woman. Although I believe the man is trying to probably get some money because of who she is I do believe she hit him with her car. If she was so innocent why did she swap drivers shortly afterwards and why did she call the police after she already left the scene? She probably was drinking and didn't even know what she was doing. She can complain about the paparazzi all she likes but its a known fact that she calls them up to let them know where she is to get exposure. If she was worried about them when driving she would of hired a driver instead. She said in a interview that she doesn't go to clubs anymore yet shes back in one again and trying to say she only went there because she wanted to wish a friend a happy birthday. Why couldn't she do that in the day or call the "friend" up? Oh yeah because she wouldn't get all the attention if she did that, that's if the story is even true which I doubt because she lies about everything. Stupid woman I hope they charge her doesn't matter if the man was hurt or not she should of stopped and not drove off.
