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 betting it was a paparazzi that was hit. Now we'll be hearing about a lawsuit and settlement. I''m sure the dudes injuries became much more serious one he saw it was LiLo driving the car. I doubt even Lindsay would have left the scene if the guy was hurt bad enough to have been taken to the hospital.

I doubt they will do anything to her, which is a shame. Most be nice to be rich and not have to worry about the following the laws like us regular people.

So Amanda drives around smoking dope and having hit and runs and no arrest made. A guy who prob. walked into her car, is not hurt.....sees who she is and calls police. They wait outside to arrest her and the guy decides he wants to do a quick "money run" to the hospital for invisable injuries....??

What a world we live in. What.....did Amanda blow some cops to get off???

This is unacceptable. She hit a person who had to be hospitalized! She is going to KILL someone, some day. Please throw her in jail for a while. I am sick of this.

It's a race to the finish, Lohan or Bynes? So much for Dina's statement that those things wouldn't happen in NY - ostensibly, when Lindsay is with her. Both are sad individuals. I hope and pray that no one is killed before it's all over.

The fact that she has started putting Bynes down and comparing I am not shocked. Now Since she has been CONVICTED and the other has not, take her to court.

Lindsay was worried about her car, not the man she hit? In Cali she left a party at 12 noon and here in NY she is bar hoping at 2a.m. Way to work on you sobriety Lindsay!!! Someone's post said Lindsay would do something this week because of the attention Amanda Bynes was getting. Boy did that person hit the nail on top of the head. Kudos.
