Lindsay Lohan

Lied to Cops

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

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.

She's an emotional retard. The drugs have ruined her permanently. Her brain is out of whack. I don't think she'll see 30.

Moron. Plain and simple. Surely by now she understands that she is a TERRIBLE driver. With that kind of money, someone should drive you EVERYWHERE... not to mention that the production company HAD a driver there to bring her to the set. Why is she so stupid? Why Lord?? WHY???? I just want to jump through my monitor and kick her in the she-nuts.

Here we go again,the same ol song and dance. Cops will not be able to get all the info they need(pink bag,who was driving-driver will change his mind)),The lawyer will get her off,the judge is too awestruck to ask for anything more than an autograph. Because of overcrowding she won't spend anytime in jail,she'll walk away scott-free,like the teflon don that she is and learn nothing from her mistakes. Her fans will defend and look up to her. The movie is absolutely ecstatic over the free publicity they are getting and we all know down the road this whole process will once again repeat itself as we stay glued to TMZ for updates. The end! Where's my popcorn!!

I believe the truck driver, I think Lindsay tried to use her star power and tried to make herself look like the victim here.

Well, it's pretty obvious that she either had drugs in her system, in the car, or she realized that she wasn't supposed to be driving the rental provided by Lifetime. Either way, movie/tv career is over. Although I guess you can't really beat a dead horse. Her career was over 10 years ago after Mean Girls. Part of her probation was immediate jail for full sentencing if not law abiding. I'm guessing that this will finally be the end of any leniancy in court for Loserhan. Now all of her idiot fans that were calling the truck driver a liar, and only looking for a pay day can eat their words. This is going to be one big web of trouble for Lindsay. A spider couldn't crawl out of this one.

They'll probably take her license away and fine her. This is so sad, I really hoped Lindsay was finally getting it together.
Time for the Court to realize she's going to kill someone. If it had been a small car instead of a big truck she would have.

She "could" be prosecuted and her probation "could" be revoked but neither of these will happen. We all know that no charges will be filed and she will yet again get off scott-free.

Gee, does anyone at TMZ have a high school education? The word is "there" not their. My nine year old can report on this story without any grammatical or spelling errors.

What? I am shocked! She has always been an upstanding and honest homebody type. This is simply devasting. I don't think anybody could seen this coming.

LOL....Bitch is too dumb at the ER to refuse to talk to the cops, and Holley was hauling a$$ to get there to shut her trap, but she didn't make it in time. Eyewitness said the truck obeyed the traffic laws, was flying down PCH and weaving in and out and got crushed by the truck. So now she lied to the cops, surprise. If this doesn't get her ass in jail finally, I give up. What does this do to Liz and Dick now? Put a nail in your career Lohan, it's officially OVER. Who is going to hire her????

ANYONE who is cked by this simply hasn't been paying attention. This is par for the course, for Loserhan.

I hope the cops press charges regarding her lie & she goes straigh to jail!

As for her career? Dead. Done for. She was lucky Lifetime wanted her for this role (and now they'll be sorry).
