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.

Somebody is a liar looking for a payout. As screwed up as Lindsay is, I'd believe her over some mexican 100% of the time.

now the guy says that she was drunk. Ok, fine. But she says that she wasn't. Now the Police say that she wasn't. So? Where is Shawn? The guy doesn't look good to me, now. I'd start with the defamation money, then all the accessories. Shawn will take care of it.

Seriously, when did Rodriguez speak to her, that he would know she was drunk? Supposedly, he crossed in front of her, she didn't notice anything (so they didn't exchange words?), and she parked. He ran after her car, but not all the way. She went in, came out, went in, later got arrested. He went to the hospital. When did they interact verbally?

I was just watching this on TMZ Live and just wanted to note that the man who she supposably hit could go into an emergency room and get morphine. I have health issues and any time I have gone into an emergency and complained of any type of pain they will give you Vicodin or Morphine depending on how severe you say your pain is. So yes doctors do just give morphine. Patients have the right to ask for pain management.

Someone better tell this Jose Jokester that filing a false police report is a misdemeanor in NYC and Linds could sue him as well. Secondly, the ape shows her car was creeping, not rushing. It also shows no contact other than brushing his clothing maybe. He didn't fall aside. He ran after car, pretty good for "torn tendons". And the hospital released him with no injuries or meds. So, let's call this what it is.....a liar going after money. Arrest him already and charge him with a misdemeanor. He makes the legit charges against her look like they are excusable by her now.

Lohan allegedly hit Jose Rodriguez, a 34-year-old Manhattan chef, in her black Porsche Cayenne in an alleyway between the Maritime and Dream Hotels in NYC’s Meatpacking District at around 1 a.m.

After clipping Rodriguez with her SUV, Lohan and her friend got out of the vehicle to check the car for damage. Police said Lohan and her posse then entered the hotel’s nightclub. When Lohan returned to her car at around 2:30 a.m., she was arrested.

This is ridiculous. If you watch the video you can see how slowly she pulls into the parking garage, there is ABSOLUTELY no way that driving that slow you could case any damage to someone. as for his comment I fell down to the side, he didnt move at all, abnd running after the car ... like seriously how bad could you have been hurt. People are so stupid. Get a job and make your own money loser.
