Lindsay Lohan

Lied to Cops

6/11/2012 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0611_llindsay_lohan_lying_article_2
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Lindsay Lohan lied to cops Friday by telling them she was NOT driving the Porsche that slammed into a truck on the Pacific Coast Highway, and as a result she could be prosecuted and her probation could be revoked.

Our sources say, when Lindsay was in the hospital getting checked out after the accident, cops from the Santa Monica Police Dept. paid a visit.  Lindsay told police she was a passenger in the Porsche and her assistant was driving.   But the lie didn't stick because later Lindsay's assistant told police Lindsay was behind the wheel.

We're told police are writing up a report that will include Lindsay's lie.  It's a crime to provide false info to a police officer.  In addition, lying to police could trigger a probation violation in her shoplifting case, which means she faces the possibility of jail on 2 fronts.

Several eyewitnesses at the scene tell TMZ, after the crash Lindsay and her assistant both got out of the car on the passenger side, which means Lindsay had to climb over the console.  It appears Lindsay had concocted the lie almost immediately after impact.



Now we know why Lindsay's lawyer Shawn Holley (above) was rushing to the hospital. She knew police were interviewing her client. Unfortunately for Lindsay, Holley got there a little too late.

update_bar
1:59 PM PDT -- Lindsay doesn't appear too concerned about her situation ... she went back to work on the set of her Lifetime movie "Liz and Dick" earlier this morning looking cool, calm and collected.

Lindsay arrived on set in a black SUV ... and it's worth noting she got out of the PASSENGER side.

If this is a chess match between Amanda Bynes and LieLo, I do believe that LieLo has Amanda in "check."

The Santa Monica Police Department wants to conduct a follow-up interview with Lindsay Lohan to discuss the frightening car accident she was involved in last Friday, when she hit a dump truck, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

As we previously reported, Lohan rear ended the dump truck on Pacific Coast Highway. The Porsche, driven by Lindsay, was totaled and sent the actress and her assistant to the emergency room. Both were later released and didn't suffer serious injuries.

"Lindsay answered all questions that were asked of her while she was in the emergency room at the hospital," a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com. "Lindsay was in shock at the time, but nonetheless she cooperated. Lindsay did everything that was asked of her, including, submitting to a breathalyzer test which registered 0.00. The officers didn't have any reason to believe she was under the influence of any substances. The cops have a few follow-up questions they would like to ask Lindsay which is routinely done in traffic accident investigations. Lindsay could be cited for speeding, and it will probably be determined that she was the sole reason for the traffic accident."

James Johnson, the truck driver who was rear ended by Lohan and reportedly claimed that Lohan's camp tried to pay him off immediately after the accident, filed for bankruptcy in 2011. According to the court docs filed by Johnson in February 2011, his business, JJ's Trucking, had $57k in debts. The trucker owes $3k in taxes and earns $2762.00 per month. When Johnson filed for bankruptcy he had only $80.00 in cash, furniture worth $3500 and owed $10k on his Ford F150 truck. Johnson had a truck repossessed in 2008 and still owes $28k

Lohan was back on set on Monday filming Liz & Dick, the Lifetime television movie based on the love affair between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

"Lindsay was a true professional on set Monday, although she did say she was rather sore from the accident. She knows that she is lucky to be alive. The cops told her if she hadn't been wearing her seatbelt she could have been killed, along with her passenger, Gavin Doyle. Both airbags did deploy and the car was totaled. It was a miracle that anyone walked away from the accident," the insider says.

Lohan's rep, Steve Honig, told RadarOnline.com, "Lindsay provided everything to the police they asked for; we're not going to comment while they conduct their investigation."

'12Lindsay Lohan told crack-lies to the police after her car accident, of course

Last Friday, Lindsay Lohan crashed her (rented) Porsche into the back of an 18-wheeler. Cracktastrophe, crack drama and crack denials ensued. Because Lindsay’s brain is so fried and permanently pickled, she and her crack team of handlers/enablers had a hell of time getting their stories straight. If you’d like to see recap all of the events as of Sunday, go here. I’m not even going to bother trying summarize beyond “B!tch is a crack liar, and the state of California is a g–damn joke.” So, what new information do we have now? Lots and lots. Bullet points!

*Larry Thompson, the producer of Liz & Dick, told Deadline that Lindsay is “shaken but not stirred… She wants to work, we are sending her to makeup hoping to resume production and get as much as we can done.” Even though Lindsay came to work after her ten-second trip to the hospital, producers had to rearrange the schedule because of the extensive makeup work that needs to be done to cover A) Lindsay’s bruises and B) Lindsay’s crack face.

*Thompson also told Deadline that Lindsay isn’t supposed to be driving – his production company provides Lindsay a limousine to and from work, but on Friday “When they went to pick her up today, for some reason she decided they (Lohan and her assistant) would get in her own car, so the limousine driver followed them.” Thompson has already alerted the insurance company that the production is already losing money, and Thompson says, “I was nervous before the movie started, now I’m just petrified… I was telling someone: Lindsay went to the doctor, and I should go see a psychiatrist.” For God’s sake – don’t act like you didn’t KNOW something was going to happen. It’s Lindsay Lohan, for the love of God. OF COURSE she’s going to act like a crackhead. Why are people expressing surprise?

*Meanwhile, Lindsay’s poor cracked-out rep Steve Honig was sent out to formally deny certain aspects of the story to People Magazine. Honig tells People, “Lindsay cooperated fully with law enforcement. She has answered all their questions and provided them with everything they have asked for.” Honig also slams the other driver for his allegations that LL was trying to bribe him – Honig says, “It seems to me once he realized he wasn’t going to get anything from Lindsay he decided to get cash by telling tales to the tabloids. I hope he got whatever money he was looking for. Personally, all I care about is that Lindsay and [her assistant] Gavin are okay.” Oh, STFU.

*BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TMZ reported on Monday that “law enforcement sources” are telling them that “Lindsay Lohan lied to cops Friday by telling them she was NOT driving the Porsche that slammed into a truck on the Pacific Coast Highway, and as a result she could be prosecuted and her probation could be revoked.” When Lindsay was in the hospital right after the accident, cops from the Santa Monica Police Dept. took her statement, and “Lindsay told police she was a passenger in the Porsche and her assistant was driving. But the lie didn’t stick because later Lindsay’s assistant told police Lindsay was behind the wheel.” Witnesses saw Lindsay behind the wheel too, and why would her initial story be “he cut me off” and “my brakes failed” if she wasn’t driving?

*So what could come out of Lindsay telling police officers flat-out crack lies? I believe the state of California’s penalty for “a celebrity lying to a police officer” is “a slap on the firecrotch.” In reality, TMZ says that it’s a crime to provide false information to a police officer and considering Lindsay is STILL on probation, she could be violated and sent to jail. Which won’t happen.

Lohan doesn't have any splitting hair excuses. She's flat out in the wrong. The driver didn't stop short didn't cut her off no skid marks he was already in the right lane. She was probally speeding went to go around and missed. Just look at the damage to the car. That say's quite alot. Thats not working so now she's saying the breaks failed on a porsche no way porsche will buy that. That will be another lie she's caught in.

She was not suppose to drive to and from the set that's why she had a car driving her. Driver showed up she drove herself. I don't see how lifetime can have anything done to them. Lieing to the cops never good.


This is all Lohans fault from A-Z and she knows it. I'm also glad that Gavin wasn 't going to get thrown under the bus to save her ass. Plus Lohan in her own words said she was driving. She never could keep her lies stright.

She never learns because she never gets punished. Put her in the slammer for a few months and see how she changes her tune! But seriously, nothing will ever happen to her, she's thinks she's too entitled and it seems like the way she gets treated other people think so too, which is very sad. This girl needs jail time ASAP!!!

It's the same old PR BS spin no one believes. Doesn't matter what his financial situation is. The man didn't even know who she is. I don't doubt the man for a minute.

Lohan still doesn't care less. She is recklass which makes her very dangerous. Slap or no slap pull her DL so she can't drive before she kills somebody or is that what it will take.

I think its instinctual for thieves, liars, crooks to move to conceal the truth when they break the law. Thats why she climbed over that console without even thinking about it!
The knew right away that she had to try to cover the truth, and acted like a pro crackie and jumped the stick. (so to speak)
