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 not a Lindsay Lohan fan and generally speaking I could care less what happens to her. In this case there seems to be a little bit more to it. For example, TMZ reports that law enforcement sources told them the following, “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.” Key words here, “at very low speed” and “was pulling in to park her Porche Cayenne.” Now get the image here. You are pulling into a parking space at very low speed. Someone is approaching your car heading wherever. Was the man standing there, in the space or next to it, and not moving? Was the man moving toward the space as LL was pulling and not notice her or did he purposely bumped into her car?

TMZ reports that someone reported the following, “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.” I didn’t read a report that anyone confronted LL or make a scene regarding the alleged accident.

And finally, the TMZ sources said, “the alleged victim was hospitalized ... however, he was not knocked down or dragged, and didn't have any visible injuries.” From the information reported the man was clipped on the knee by the rear bumper. Couldn’t have been the front bumper because the physical damage to his knee would have been greater then described. It is fairly clear that this man either set up the accident or negligent for running into her car. Lindsay Lohan life has become a waste but in this case I feel she is blameless.

How many chances will they give her before she actually kills someone and/or herself driving ? I blame this Hollywood-ass-kissing system

She looks like Bette Davis in "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane" in the top photo. If you've seen the beach scene at the very end of that movie, you'd know what I mean. It's kind of spooky.
