breaking news

0919-lindsay-lohan-article-arrestedLindsay Lohan was a drunken mess when she struck a pedestrian in front of a NYC hotel this morning ... this according to the alleged victim.

Jose Rodriguez -- a Manhattan chef -- spoke with the New York Daily News following the crash ... claiming Lindsay was slurring her words and "smelled like alcohol real bad" when she hit him with her Porsche in front of the Dream hotel around 12:30 AM.

We broke the story ... Lohan was arrested at 2:30 AM for leaving the scene of an accident.  

Cops say they don't believe Lohan was drunk at the time of the arrest -- however Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly admitted Lindsay did not take a breathalyzer test.

Rodriguez told the Daily News he had just gotten off work at the Bottega restaurant when all of the sudden "[I] saw this car come real quick and hit me."

"I was in so much pain ... I fell to the side."

Rodriguez says he was taken to Bellevue Hospital where he was treated for torn tendons -- and claims doctors gave him morphine to deal with the pain.

As for Lindsay -- she says Rodriguez is making the whole thing up ... claiming she didn't hit anyone this morning.

So, we have POS Lindsey driving around in a world full of reality-star wannabes who would sell their own fat daughter for $. Kind of a wash really. Depressing times we live in - in some ways.

There are two tendons that run through the knee, the Patella tendon is the strongest that we have in our body and the hamstring. I doubt that he tore his Patella tendon and frequently a torn hamstring is a sports injury.

Lilo's a brat - but I'm not buying this guy's story. Her karma is in the toilet..but thinking back to that kid dj qualls from a few years ago saying "she's not a nice person at all & her career is done" he was right on.

OK, so that's his side of the story. Any notion that LIndsay was drunk is highly questionable. NYC cops aren't going to let an obviously drunk person that smelled of alcohol badly and is slurring their speech not submit to a field sobriety test. No way. I'm sure there are more stories to come. I do not think LIndsay was drunk however.

He said, she said. He'll never be able to prove his allegations of boozebreath and slurring unless disinterested witnesses come forward to corroborate the claim. Whether he was hit hard enough to fall will be revealed when the video leaks, and will either bolster his credibility or negate it. Everything else we're reading on this flurry of blurbs is questionable, since TMZ appears to be relying heavily on unnamed "sources", whoever they are.

Well it would be pretty obvious if she was slurring her words to the police. If they thought she was drunk they would have given her a test. Unless someone really messed up.


Drunk or not if she hit this man and drove away she needs to be punished it for her and according to her tweets to Amanda Bynes, Lohan agrees with that.

at this point it doesn't really matter whether she is guilty or innocent because she put herself into this position by her past actions and everyone pretty much believes anyone over her.. She needs to just disappear for a couple of years so she can actually make a real comeback if that is even possible anymore.

Somehow Lohan will turn all this around so that it was the pedestrian's fault, he will either get fired or dirt will be dug up on him. That is how the Lohan Clan works.

Maybe they didnt give her a breath test because she was coming out of a bar so she could have said she drunk in the bar. But the cops did say she was sober when they arrested her. What a cluster f*k!

How long after she allegedly hit the guy did she speak to the cops? Wasn't it a couple of hours later?
