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.

I'm going to say something unpopular here, who cares? No one should drink and drive, there I said it. But, the persecution of people like Lindsay Lohan is ridiculous. She is the whipping post for all that's wrong with the US. She has problems. She had a crappy childhood. She was a child star. Child star's don't typically do very well. She should be held accountable if she breaks the law, but not put up publicly to chastise for all her flaws. IMO!

If you're going to have a story about Lindsey at least have the professionalism to post a picture of her instead of a 60 year old transvestite.

I am so sick of these "stars" being so cheap they won't even hire a driver. Just get f-upped and get in the back seat Lindsay, you're supposed to be making movies not mug-shot albums. Being rich and famous (and sometimes beautiful) can't be that bad, sister. You need some tuff love baby.

Low-life
money grubbing

She should just do us all a favor and end her life. She's nothing but a worthless human. She's part of the surplus population that we can deal without.

Damn! Why can't this drunken cow stay home?

OH I FORGOT, SHE HAS NO HOME. IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO PARTY 365 DAYS A YEAR UNTIL DAWN THAN IT IS TO FIND AN ADDRESS TO CALL HER OWN

Just like the article suggests, . . . something definitely does smell "fishy" here . . .
Probably, the driver's seat in Lindsay's car ! ! ! ! ! !

She looks terrible. It;'s hard to believe she's only twenty something.
Stop the booze, stop the pills and stop the plastic surgery.
The entire story is sad. Stop reporting about her and maybe she will go away and get help.

Even IF she wasn't drinking, it's still ILLEGAL to hit someone with your car and run into a hotel. I think she's definitely on high alert right now, and that's why we keep earing about "not drinking a drop", but that girl has been trying to convince people she doesn't drink for years, and has always enjoyed the sweet nectar!

However, since she was actually arrested, I'm pretty sure she didn't drink, and certainly wasn't drunk, at least before getting arrested.

And, these stories are really flaky and contradictory in many ways. Hard to know what really wnt down. If she was drunk, she would have had a breathalizer at the cop shop. And doctors don't just hand out morphine to someone who "claims" to have been hit by a car, especially if there's nothing to back up a claim.

Problem is, TMZ was so excited to get this out, they had little time to actually rsearch anything...as usual....
