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.

I had no faith in Robert Downey Jr. and look at him now! He proved everyone wrong by making a killer comeback. Drawing from that experience, I had faith in Lindsay and she proved everyone who believed that she had hope, wrong. I give up with her. She is in God's hands now.

SANTA MONICA, California — Santa Monica police told Inside Line on Tuesday that no charges have been filed following in a high-profile traffic crash last Friday involving the actress Lindsay Lohan and a brand-new Porsche 911 (911).

"The driver of the dump truck was uninjured and was determined to not be impaired. The occupants of the black Porsche were determined to not be impaired and were transported to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries. Investigators are attempting to determine the driver of the black Porsche at the time of the collision."

Gotta love Joan Rivers

Joan Rivers ‏@Joan_Rivers
Lindsay Lohan has a lot in common with the cars she drives -- they all end up smashed.

Oh look, it's Lindsay's Fair Weathered Friend, fresh off the toilet. Hope that didn't leave a mark. Love how you only show up when you THINK something is going LL's way. With friends like that, who needs enemies...

There is no question that she should be in jail. She left the scene of an accident (hit and run) and she lied to the Police and everyone else. Lock the loser up. How many chances do you get in life?

Confirms our suspicions of bipolar disorder. People with uncontrolled symptoms will lie for no reason whatsoever. It is almost like the brain short-circuits the memory and goes right to a lie. I have seen it. Only way out of this nightmare is careful use of medications, which requires only one simple rational act per day, which is taking meds and accepting the side effects until something better comes along. So why lying is pathological, there is a way out as long as the person in not completely delusional.

I think that the judge in charge of Lindsay's case should be informed. Lindsay should be allowed to finish her movie, then taken to court for this accident. Lohan was not driving safely and caused the accident. Then she lied to the police about who was driving the car. Lindsay Lohan needs to take responsibility for her actions and this means jail time for her.
The driver of the truck should not be awarded for faking injuries, though. Reporting the accident was responsible and Lohan's insurance should take care of any damages.

INSIDER H8TURD, V.P.    

DUIna told Linds that she better hold it together and “homebody it up” good while there’s still hope for the fledgling “Liz” movie, so Linds - master chef that she is - dispatched AA Aliana to “pick up” all the fixings for a full-scale turkey dinner.

While Linds waited for the goods to be shoplifted, she staggered about the sprawling cathedral-sized estate, looking for the kitchen - stopping only to change clothes between rooms. And do a few fat gaggers. Used to living in motel rooms, maintenance rooms, and storage facilities, Linds never could find it, and got frustrated after only a few grams, so - naturally - turned violent. She stabbed some random skank in the throat and set fire to the “wardrobe room”, then raged out the door, DUI’ing to Cameltown. DUIna was furiously Tweeting “call me” to everyone who’s name contained a vowel. AA Aliana sat there - vacant and picking her scabs.

Tra la la la la la…. Another day in Lindsayland.
