Lindsay Lohan

Witness Says Actress Was

NOT Drunk

EXCLUSIVE

10:15 AM PT -- Lindsay's also telling friends ... she was NOT drinking last night whatsoever.

Sources extremely close to the actress tell us, Lindsay was with other sober people at the time of the alleged accident -- so if she was actually drunk, she could easily have gotten a designated driver to take her to the hotel.

For this reason ... Lindsay's arguing ... there was absolutely NO REASON to risk driving drunk, so the evidence points in her favor.

Lindsay Lohan didn't drink a drop of alcohol last night -- this according to a girl who was with Lindsay until 11:30 PM ... just 40 minutes before her alleged accident.

Lindsay was at a Slash concert last night at Hammerstein Ballroom -- and according to someone who was working backstage where Lindsay was hanging out, the actress was "definitely sober."

You'll recall, the chef who claims Lindsay hit him with her car says she "smelled like alcohol real bad" at the time of the accident.

But the stagehand at the Slash concert tells TMZ, Slash doesn't allow booze backstage because he's sober too.

0918_lindsay_lohan_concertThe show ended at roughly 11:30 PM and according to the surveillance tape, Lindsay's alleged accident occurred at 12:12 AM.

That gives Lindsay 42 minutes (at most) to get from Hammerstein Ballroom to the Dream Hotel, where the accident allegedly took place.

The hotel is only 1.5 miles from the venue, but everyone knows how much of a pain it is to leave a concert hall after a show -- getting through the crowd, finding your car -- so it doesn't leave Lindsay much time to drink so much booze she reeked of it.

Of course the "source" - her friend who was in the car - would say that, even if she was loaded. She may not have been drinking, but she was, most likely, on other substances. Either way, this self entitled little brat, who is also a terrible actress, should drive herself across the river to Jersey and stay there. She is a loser and has not aged well at all - in fact, she is nasty.

In one of my most recent posts I wished her chaos on New York since they hatched and raised her - I WAS ONLY KlIDDING

Of course we here in LA knew that she would be arrested in NYC - can u imagine the number of times she has hit and run and driven drunk without being caught?

HER NUMBER IS UP AGAIN - HOWEVER SHE WILL ONLY SPEND ABOUT 30 TO 40 DAYS IN COUNTY IF SHE IS CONVICTED OF THIS VIOLATION AND THEN SHE WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE CHARGE IN NY

Lindsay Lohan 'Confident' Arrest Won't Trigger Probation ViolationLindsay Lohan 'Confident' Arrest Won't Trigger Probation Violation 0 0

Lindsay Lohan is confident that her early morning arrest in New York City for allegedly leaving the scene of an accident, won't trigger a probation violation in her misdemeanor necklace theft case, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

"Lindsay believes that her arrest in New York City won't cause any trouble for her even though she is still on probation in the necklace theft case," a source close to the situation tells us. "Lindsay doesn't believe that Judge Stephanie Sautner would find that she had violated terms of her probation, because she maintains that she never hit the pedestrian. Lindsay is confident that she won't suffer any legal consequences from her arrest. Lindsay says she would never leave the scene of an accident if she was aware she had hit someone and she is hopeful that this matter will be resolved quickly."

As previously reported, the 26-year-old starlet was hauled off to jail early Wednesday morning after an alleged hit-and-run accident and a source on the scene told RadarOnline.com that when police arrived Lindsay was yelling: “Call my Dad! Call my Dad!”

Lindsay's rep Steve Honig tells Radar, "While some of the facts are still being gathered, it appears that this is much ado about nothing. We are confident this matter will be cleared up in the coming weeks and the claims being made against Lindsay will be proven untrue."

Lilo remains on informal probation for the stolen necklace caper and is no longer required to check in with a probation officer, or be drug tested.

However, Linsday has been instructed by Judge Stephanie Sautner to not break any laws.

"Shawn Holley was woken up very, very early this morning after Lindsay was arrested," the source says. "Lindsay was able to speak with Shawn while she was being processed at the police station. Lindsay is no stranger to being arrested and she followed Shawn's advice and didn't talk to the cops."

Lohan may be in trouble with the law again but her father Michael Lohan previously told Radar that he stands behind his daughter 100 percent and believes that she wasn’t drinking prior to her latest arrest. Papa Lohan says that he is “SO happy that Lindsay had confidence in me! I love her; I will always be there for her.

“I am happy that she is away from other people and was NOT drinking last night!”

Michael also told RadarOnline.com that Lindsay has a solid team around her now. “I am happy that Shawn Holley, Dave Feldman, Gavin and my lawyer and our friend Ben Pietra were there for her

cALIFORNIA pENAL cODE sECTION 1203.2

(a) At any time during the probationary period of a person
released on probation under the care of a probation officer pursuant
to this chapter, or of a person released on conditional sentence or
summary probation not under the care of a probation officer, if any
probation officer or peace officer has probable cause to believe that
the probationer is violating any term or condition of his or her
probation or conditional sentence, the officer may, without warrant
or other process and at any time until the final disposition of the
case, rearrest the person and bring him or her before the court or
the court may, in its discretion, issue a warrant for his or her
rearrest. Upon such rearrest, or upon the issuance of a warrant for
rearrest the court may revoke and terminate such probation if the
interests of justice so require and the court, in its judgment, has
reason to believe from the report of the probation officer or
otherwise that the person has violated any of the conditions of his
or her probation, has become abandoned to improper associates or a
vicious life, or has subsequently committed other offenses,
regardless whether he or she has been prosecuted for such offenses.
