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.

Move that knee. I'm Lindsay Lohan...Seriously? Is she so jealous of Amanda Bynes that she had to do something to stay in the news?

And since this was a no bail offense, the judge in Cali won't do a thing to her.

There's a problem here    

I can't wait to see what happens when she gets to a NYC court. If her victim was hospitalized he was injured. You have to be practically dead to get an admission. We get all this excitement and get to hear Dina's spin on it too! It's like a 2 for 2, especially on the heels of Dina's drunk/high Dr Phil show appearance. Thanks for making my day Lindsay! She can't act, she can't model, but she sure as hell can tempt fate.

Yep    

Hopefully she doesn't get in trouble for this, she obviously only left because she was scared, it shouldn't be a crime to be afraid.

Tell ya, I spent 20 years as a coke addict myself and yet I never seen anyone more flucked up than this dumb overpaid ''dead in a year'' t w a t . What a deadbeat. Women out there, there's nothing more nasty than a drunken junkie chick, take that from a certified BUSH HOUND. NOTHING. A drunken woman is worthless more so than a drunken man, they're expected to be idiots, but the young women are pulling up fast.

Linds doesn't need alcohol to have driving accidents. I do find humor in the fact that it's NYC not
known for celeb justice like in CA. And the story unfolds!!!!
