Lindsay Lohan

Prosecutor REJECTS

Hit-and-Run Case

5/4/2012 2:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lindsay Lohan
will NOT be prosecuted for allegedly committing a hit-and-run in Hollywood in March, because prosecutors say the accuser is full of crap.

We broke the story ... Thaer Kamal, the manager of the Hookah Lounge -- claimed Lindsay was driving when she struck him on her way out of a nearby club.

According to the L.A. County D.A.'s rejection notification, Kamal was a "non-credible witness" who changed his story and refused to cooperate with law enforcement.  He refused, among other things, to produce the medical records he claims he had from his alleged hospital visit.

Cops also say the surveillance video shows "no collision."

We reported this morning the case was almost certainly going to be rejected, but the strong language from the D.A. even surprised us.

She dodged a bullet now, but she could be arrested for the assult at the bar. She needs jail, not another slap on the wrist.

Is anyone really surprised that she got away with it again? When she kills someone or seriously injures them, what's the court going to say then? "Sorry, it was clear that this would happen, but she was just so darn famous. You couldn't expect us to actually do something about her." Now let's all watch her play the victim and TMZ will post exactly what LL/her mother tell them to.

Since the video shows no collision, the false accuser should be charged with filing a false police report.

If they have video of her in the car driving and she told them she was not even there She should be charged with lying to authorities.

It won't stop until she kills someone and then I wouldn't be surprised if they blamed the victim. She should not be allowed to drive.

The problem is - LiLo will use this to justify that everything she's doing is right-on. It will actually hasten her next arrest.

Yeah, so what. Everyone thought she'd skate on the hit and run but the assault is still there, so what's the celebration about?

However, Lohan is still under investigation for allegedly assaulting Marisa Dugas at a club at The Standard Hotel. Detectives are wrapping up the investigation, and sources connected to the case tell RadarOnline.com that there is enough "compelling evidence" to charge the embattled actress.

"There is enough compelling evidence to charge Lindsay with assault as investigators have three very solid and credible witnesses, including the alleged victim," a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com.

"Investigators wanted to talk to Lindsay but she wasn't made available for an interview, which she was under no obligation to do. Lindsay's attorney has been in contact with detectives so it's not like her camp isn't taking this seriously, they absolutely are. Her advisers just don't think it's in Lindsay's best interest to be interviewed regarding this investigation. Lindsay remains on informal probation for her necklace theft case, and if she is charged, it's extremely likely that she will be sent back to jail."

Further bolstering the case against Lohan, the source says, is the fact that Dugas has absolutely no plans to sue the actress over the alleged assault, but only wants an apology. "My client, Marisa Dugas just wants Lindsay Lohan to publicly apologize to her for the assault, and be held responsible for her actions. I can definitively tell you that Marisa has absolutely no plans to sue Lindsay Lohan. Lindsay should be treated just like everyone else and not get any special treatment because she is a celebrity. Lindsay Lohan needs to stop lying about where she really was that night and grow up," Mark Haushalter, Dugas' attorney previously told RadarOnline.com.

The problem here is, TMZ has only focused on the hit and run case, and never the pending assault case (for some reason.) So her supporters think she's free and clear, which she is for now but I can see in their low I.Q. minds where they get confused.

The day anyone with any common sense believes anything Radar post is a sad day for the believer. Radar have descended into gutter reporting, not only about LL but just about everyone. FYI their 'source is the Marisa Dugas lawyer
