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.

Truth    

She just told Matt Lauer on The Today Show that she was not into clubbing anymore and that she has changed. Really" I guess she got no offers after that disaster of a performance on SNL so she figures the best way to get noticed is to do what sje does best "break the law".
Enough with this bimbo already. She's Courtney Love 2.0.

Typical homebody behavior running down a person outside of a night club on a Wednesday night at 12 in the morning.Its nice to see that Lindsay was telling the truth to Matt Lauer and that she is so over clubbing its just not her thing anymore. All she has been doing is clubbing since the interview! The last time she did a hit and run she was drunk and high. Maybe the paps were the cause but Lindsay feeds off the paps just as much as they feed off of her.

Lindsay is already back to scandal, back to clubbing no other celebs have this hard of a time keeping their names out away from negative press. This little pit bull is about to be let off Judge Sautners tight leash come the end of March and club goers and babies in strollers better WATCH THE F*K out because the real Lindsay Lohan will be back out on town heck she already is. What is Lifetime thinking having her do a film? Lindsay will show up to set late hung over or not to set at all due to a long night of clubbing just like all of her other movies, interviews ect.

Let me guess Linds, the black kid was driving!

Lohan MUST be "trending" now, wouldn't you say? Doesn't matter if its in a good way or a bad way, but then we know its ALWAYS going to be in a bad way until she truly "gets it".

I'm not saying the guy wasn't injured because obviously he would be if he even got grazed by a car. But he said at the scene he was fine. Just perfectly fine. Until...he was told that he got hurt by someone famous. So...doesn't it sound like he's trying to make some publicity for himself and his club? I mean, really, he never complained until it seemed he knew she was famous.

I hope the emergency room he went to was at a private hospital. It's because of wasteful morons like this that we'll never have a decent healthcare system.
Obviously looking for a payout.

Good I hope he does press charges. You CANT run someone down with your car and then just drive away. Lindsay is probably driking gallons of water right now in a desperate attempt to flush her system. She is going to end up killing someone one day. Even if a police report is filed nothing will come of it. Just like the BF assualt that was recorded on a 911 tape had witnesses and a injury but was dropped due to lack of evidense. Same will happen here. Judge Sautner will prob take her out to lunch.

So much for not going to clubs anymore and being a "homebody." Like any of us expected there to be any truth to that statement. If Lifetime is smart, they'll replace her with another actress for the Liz Taylor movie. It sure doesn't seem she can keep herself out of trouble for very long. Insurance for her must be through the roof.
