Lindsay Lohan

Alleged Hit-and-Run Case

No One is Cooperating

3/22/2012 1:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0322-lindsay-lohan-dog-tmz-EXLaw enforcement sources tell TMZ ... both Lindsay Lohan and the man who claims she struck him while she was driving her Porsche last week are refusing to cooperate with police.

We're told Lindsay and the alleged victim -- Thaer Kamal (right) -- have both refused to sit down with the detectives for an interview.  Important to note ... neither has an obligation to sit for an interview, but it's unlikely cops will even refer the matter to prosecutors if the alleged victim is uncooperative.

But it gets way more interesting ... Sources tell us an investigator from an insurance company contacted Lindsay's lawyer and said they were investigating the alleged victim for 6 - 8 cases of insurance fraud -- allegedly staging car accidents and filing phony claims.

And the plot thickens ... although the insurance investigator told Lindsay's lawyer he believed the person accusing Lindsay of hit-and-run was the same person they were investigating ... sources at the insurance company tell us the alleged fraudster's first name is Amr -- not Thaer, and the last name is different as well.

We do not know if Thaer -- a former soldier in Iraq -- used such an alias.

But we do know that Thaer has hired famed lawyer Mark Geragos, who has already made a settlement demand to Lindsay.  We contacted Geragos about the allegations and he said his guy was not involved in insurance fraud, but when we called back regarding the alias Geragos did not pick up. 

And the final twist -- Lindsay is in court next week for her final probation progress hearing.  If the hit-and-run case goes haywire on her, it could jeopardize her freedom.

We could not reach Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Holley for comment.

Stay tuned ...

Why do actresses get away with what literally is a slap on the wrist for what we would get the chair for, just kidding, but we would get a lot stiffer punishment. Like the case of Halle Berry. Three accidents in a very short time and one was a hit and run. She really did hurt the person she hit and Halle just says she doesn't remember so that makes it OK.
Then we have this crap of Lindsay is in the drivers seat, then not in the drivers seat. Does that mean that her friend is going to go down for Lindsay? Would Lindsay let a friend go down for her? (for her not on her, lol) Will the friend finally come to her senses and throw Lindsay to the wolves? I hope so, for the wolves are hungry for justice. And their tired of eating bull.

in 2000, Berry was driving her white Chevy Blazer and broadsided a 1996 Pontiac Sunfire. Witnesses who saw the car flee the scene did not realize who the driver of the Blazer was at the time of the collision.



The victim in this Halle Berry car accident, Heta Raythatha suffered a broken wrist and filed charges against the actress.



For her part, Berry suffered a concussion and cut her forehead requiring 20 stitches. The actress contends that she doesn’t remember any of the details of the accident and pled no contest in court. Her sentence for this accident was three years probation, 200 hours of community service, and a $13,500 fine. Although a civil lawsuit was filed, it was settled out of court.

Looks like the guy was a interpreter in Iraq not a Soldier, no ammo pouches, no 1st aid pouch, yeah I'd say he was a Terp. Iraqis go by many different names, not necessary alias's, but by village, father, tribal names.

I think every kid should watch "bully" and every young girl should watch "Hunger Games" I spent my childhood sticking up for my brother. He was bullied horribly because he was deaf. We always lost the fight but the bullies learned that I was a psycho so eventually they left us alone.
