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 ...

Gee, Lilo not cooperating? Who ever would have thought? Hahahaha! You know I had first thought he may be full of it, but how the heck did he get Geragos?? Lindsay could be going down for this one. And if the names don't match AT ALL how can they say this is the same guy committing fraud? That insurance story sounds like crap.

Lohan's can come on here and accuse the victim of Lindsay's crime that he's a serial killer.
Look what they did to the store that Lindsay stold the necklace from.

This guy didn't press charges and isn't co-operating for one simple reason, if the cops investigated they would find there is no case to answer which would weaken his civil case which he planned from the getgo. Its up to HIM to prove his case. The fact his lawyer has already made a claim directly to Lindsay's people confirms that.


He's nothing but a grasping deplorable scammer.

Pretty sure it's the other way around, Messenger.


She's got an established record as a scammer. Her lawyer made the payoff move because she's the ONLY one with something to lose here.

If he's injured he's entitled to something and Lindsay should be happy to pay it.

I thought it was weird when the victim said he didn't "know who Lindsey Lohan was" due to being from wherever.


-Thousands of paps converging on the Lindz.


-Snapping away - getting footage.


-But the dude's unaware he's in the presence of fame.


-then he just happens to get hit by her -


First thing Frank Daniel taught us in film school - there ARE no coincidences.


Phony - Lindsey's been through 6,000 of 'em.


You go to rehab - and there's a dozen more.

nof p.s.


Then the victim sends TMZ a pic with his alleged dog - if I were TMZ I'd check this out, as well.


Dog doesn't know him from Adam.


Dude won't sit down w/police - for fear of getting booked.


Now Geragos won't return his call - and he's out of a job.


Is loser spelled with an "s" or a "z?"
