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.

Please throw the ignorant bitch in prison and get it over with before she does kill someone. People like her infest Hollyweird and NY and should be eliminated for the good of society.

She may actually get in some trouble over this. They take leaving the scene of a crime very seriously in NYC. They also don't care about your "celebrity" status. What do you bet she gets a stiffer sentence in NYC for this one offense than she does for violating her probation in CA? Oh and WHO hits someone when they're parking??? Her license should have been taken away permanently, years ago!

Karma for her running her mouth about Bynes. But I'm sure she'll avoid jail time again with a starstruck judge.

According to Mom Dina, this would not have happened in NY. Wait a second she was in NY. I hope Lindsay takes the straight and narrow road soon. Best of luck to that troubled family

NY Cops aren't about to put up with 'celebrity" BS, as Lindsay just found out.

Good riddance!    

And why the hell aren't people doing blood tests for illegal or abuse of scripts? Hell, just swap a Q-Tip up one of her beak holes and it will come out powder coated!

I am thinking this guy realized to was LiLo and wants $$$ . Not saying she shouldn't have stayed there, just sounds suspicious.

NYC is overflowing with pedestrians -- and there are laws protecting them (L.A. just couldn't give a sh*t about pedestrians, everyone in that "progressive" city drives instead of walks). She'll hit another before the month is out, and TMZ will continue to act like hitting pedestrians is no big deal.

No matter what feelings people have about Lindsay, everyone can agree on one fact. She is a terrible driver. How can anyone get into so many accidents?

If I was her I would say send me to jail. 30 days is equal to 2 hours, damn she could sit in county jail for 24 hours and that would be enough for a 1 sentence in the overcrowded LA County Jails. If she did that maybe that would put an end to everybody threatening to put her in jail all the freakin time.
