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.

I hope he does claim injury, maybe she'll finally serve some time, although I doubt it ... if she wasn't a celebrity she'd be locked up long ago

Every judge that cut her loose and every probie officer who wrote her a favorable report to cut her loose should be sued when she finally does kill someone because That day is right around the corner.

And this is the young woman that is "all better". And the hearing is March 29? Seriously, who knew she couldn't make it through probation?

There's a problem here    

It's gonna happen:
.
(1) She's going to continue to mess up, and mess up big at some point.
.
(2) It's not really going to matter because after all, she's Lindsay Lohan, and she walks no matter what.

Lindsay Lohan is no longer living at the infamous Chateau Marmont, and is back in Los Angeles after hosting Saturday Night Live, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

As previously reported, the actress ditched her trendy Venice townhouse because of security concerns and decamped to the Chateau Marmont. LiLo has an artist friend who bought a room at the famed hotel for a year, and he offered the room to her because he wasn't using it.

The actress, who is in the midst of a career comeback, checked out of the Chateau several weeks ago. "Lindsay left the hotel about two-and-a-half weeks ago. It was only temporary, but her new digs could be permanent," a source close to Lohan tells RadarOnline.com. "For the first time in ten years, the paparazzi don't know where she is living and she is enjoying not being hounded. Great precautions are being made whenever Lindsay comes and goes from her new residence so that she isn't spotted. Of course, that can't last forever, but it's a nice break for her to just relax a bit at home like a normal person."

"For the first time in ten years, the paparazzi don't know where she is living and she is enjoying not being hounded.


ROTF! Honig should of took her phone away, cause she has the paps on speed dail and Lindsay would die without the paps following her

I just love how the Lohan Inc. spin their BS lies and they look really stupud within 24 hrs.

HOMEBODY JUSTICE? ' ̿'\̵͇̿̿\з=(•̪●)=ε/̵͇̿̿/'̿'̿ DNA and Drug use evidence of Lindsay’s recovery has begun to trickle into the LA County Technical Services Division, Chemical Abuse Group that determines probation compliance and supplies evidence to the LA County Courts. NBC Medical at the urging of their concerned staff from Today and SNL ran hair tests on material Lindsay left behind after pre show makeup. Their findings were so startling and conclusive they felt they had to act over concerns about her health. They also concluded that she was lying to the Today Show audience and determined why she was such a failure on SNL: massive, broad spectrum drug use, if not abuse. Her alcohol use has continued unabated. The problem for Lindsay is compliance with all laws. Compliance is not her strong suit and she is even worse when it comes to telling the truth and testimony. Chain of evidence issues could be resolved by retesting a fresh sample. Supporting hair samples were also sent in by her hair dresser at the CAG’s request. Lilo has been a continuing black eye to LA County Courts and soon Judge Sautner may have an evidentiary response to Lindsay’s Fvck You nail job by doing some nailing of her own: Serve Your Time Lindsay! Now that would be a comeback!
Update: There is no provision to waive Hit and Run with No Harm, No Foul! Non compliance with the law...

Does no one love this kid enough to get a Britney Spears-type conservatorship? And no I don't believe either parent in Ms. Lohan's case could begin to be considered for the role...it's like she acts as if her maturity/reality has been stunted at a 16yo level. She's not making good choices, decisions and appears as if she should not be trusted with life decisions
