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.

Y'see that's the problem. She's an Illuminati. Generational Satanist and that guy's butt was just a sacrifice to Ol' Scratch. They all do it and get away with darn near everything.

But see, I'm just a humble shoe salesman from the Chi-town burbs. Been doing it for 20 years and I have no regrets. All day and night I make sure your kicks are tight. None of this hooey matters to me. God bless.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Feeling outdone by Bynes, BITCH? You contribute NOTHING to society, no one cares about you except your loser, hangers-on "friends", and your filthy face needs to be behind bars for a very long time. Even the "Teflon Don" couldn't avoid jail. What makes you think you can? You're finished you pig.

Who is issuing these people a license? With all the points on Lindsay and Amanda's driving record, you'd mistake them for a score from a NBA game.

This will keep the liberal media busy so they don't have to report on the poor condition of our economy or our problems in foreign affairs!

I was one person who was willing to give Lindsay a second chance, but obviously, this woman is trash. I will not support anything this woman is involved, and shame on the people who keep supporting her. This is one person that should find herself broke and working a 9- 5 job so she is obligated to use the little brains left on that head! She is disgusting!

The victim is clearly lying it seems... I hope he gets arrested. But its sad that only a clear video will exonorate Lindsay at this point. Anyone could throw themselves in front of her car and Lindsay would have no credibility. Sad.

I can't help but notice that there are so many people who are telling her to get a driver - one person said something about she's rich, just hire a person to drive you.
.
Right now she's either living with her mother or staying in a Hotel room. Who said anything about her being rich anymore. She never did episodic TV, so she has no residuals, She hasn't had a real role in a major motion picture in years, she can't sing, or dance, and she can't act on the stage. The best that can be said is that she's a passable actress who used to be very pretty - who was very photogenic.
.
She can't hire a driver - hell, I doubt she has cab fare. Besides, she had someone with her, if she was half way intelegent she would of had that person drive. But she can't, because she's Lindsay Lohan and she can do anything the hell she wants.

Enough Already    

Happened or not, do you notice this over inflated lip smackin' hasbeen has an excuse FOR EVERYTHING. This skank has to be the most innocent person on this planet as NOTHING is NEVER EVER her fault! Amazing that someone can be that delusional. She is truly a piece of worthless space. No matter. Even if she is guilty, nothing will happen to her. Just another wasted day in court. Her next endeavor will be a book entitled, "A million and one excuses why it's not your fault and how to beat the legal system". SMH........
