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.

"Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?" - Lindsay Lohan

Two days later good old Linds is at it again!!!!! KARMA!!!!!!!! Bahahahahaha. Wow that didn't take long. You get what you give Lindsay and unfortunately all you do is give hate and self obsession. I can't wait for all the "It's not my fault" lies to come out.

I said this before but now it's somehow more appropriate... She was done before but NOW SHE is Toast. So long straight to Dvd Movies and Lifetime Flicks..

You won't be missed BlowHan.

CONGRATS LINDSEY! You just took your crown back. Am I the only one who thinks she maybe subconciously did this on purpose? Amanda Bynes taking her schtick? These chicks are so dumb. Look at other young stars, Scarlette, Natalie, JenniferBlake, etc you dont see them drunk, drugging, driving crazy. They maybe smoke pot but do it at home! Have a small get together at your home. Who is advising these chicks? Lindsey will be dead in 5 years or less.

I knew it! She is so jealous, it was only a matter of time! x)
She won't let Amanda steal her spotlight. Next thing she will tweet is probably that she's been arrestet but that would'nt have happened if she were a Nickelodeon Star.
She want's to prove her statement.

Ok seriously, they need to go away... BOTH!

Michael hits people which shoes. Lindsay hits them with cars. What is she doing out at 2:30 a.m.? She should be acting responsibly and work at getting her career back on track rather than partying.
