6:00 AM PT -- Lindsay is telling friends she had no idea she hit anybody and it wasn't until she came out and got arrested that she knew anything was going on.

As for the story about one of the passengers in her SUV getting out of the car and checking for damages, she says it never happened. Nobody ever got out of the car.

Lohan is calling the incident "really fishy" because the man didn't appear to have any visible injuries and feels she's the victim of a set up. She's not going to let the incident go and is planning on fighting it to the end.

7:03 AM PT -- Surveillance video of the Lindsay accident appears to show her accuser was exaggerating.

9:10 AM PT -- Lindsay's accuser says she was "slurring" her words and reeked of booze.

Lindsay Lohan
was arrested for leaving the scene of an accident early this morning after allegedly clipping a pedestrian in downtown Manhattan ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Lindsay was pulling in to park her Porsche Cayenne near the Dream Hotel in downtown NYC when -- at a very low speed -- she allegedly hit the knee of a 30-something year old guy. That was around shortly after midnight.

We're told one of Lindsay's passengers in the SUV got out and checked the vehicle for damage, and then LiLo and co. went inside the hotel.

We're told someone called police while Lindsay was inside ... and when she walked out of the hotel -- around 2:30AM ET -- officers arrested her.

As Lindsay was taken into custody she frantically screamed, "Call my dad!  Call my dad!"

According to our sources ... Lindsay was taken to the station, fingerprinted, photographed and booked for leaving the scene of an accident -- a misdemeanor -- and then released with a desk appearance ticket ... meaning she did not have to pay bail before release.

We're told alcohol was not involved.

We're told the alleged victim was hospitalized ... however, he was not knocked down or dragged, and didn't have any visible injuries.

This arrest could absolutely trigger a probation violation in Lindsay's jewelry theft case because one of the conditions of probation is she OBEY ALL LAWS.

Even without a conviction, Judge Stephanie Sautner -- the judge in the jewelry theft case -- could haul Lindsay's butt into court if there's probable cause to believe she committed a crime.

Who cares? I'm so over hearing about her and her latest troubles with the law. I'm also sick of hearing about her mother, her father and Amanda Bynes.

Lindsay in trouble with the law? This really doesn't seem like her at all.


Seriously though.. if this happened in California nothing would happen. Here's hoping the NY judicial system isn't the joke that CA's is.

Un-*****ng-believable.

Isn't there a sure-fire way to take away someone's driving license when it's more than obvious that said person cannot drive?

Mark my words: before she's is 30, LiLo's gonna kill someone. Guarantee.

truthiness    

As so it continues.
I guess her driving privileges will be revoked when she seriously maims or kills someone.
She is, as they say, a danger to herself and others, and no matter where she goes, a crap storm follows.
Lindsay, please, find a tall building, hold hands with your parents, and jump.
The world would be a much better, and much safer place for us all.

She shouldn't be allowed to drive, there is something obviously wrong with her, with or without drugs, alcohol, etc. Hope she experiences some NYC justice, and her lawyer has no jurisdiction in NYC. In addition, there are for sure 1,000's of girls out there her age who look better, act better, behave better. Why is she famous?
