Lindsay Lohan

Witness Says Actress Was

NOT Drunk

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.

Quote from story: "...there was absolutely NO REASON to risk driving drunk, so the evidence points in her favor."

That is assuming Lilo is capable of telling the truth. This girl is a PROVEN HABITUAL LIAR. There are only so many times you can yell "the sky is falling" before people stop believing you Lindsay!

I had a feeling something would happen with Lindsay today. There's no way in hell she was going to let Bynes get all the attention.

Lindsay Lohan is simply one of the most -unconscious- drivers on the planet and should be required to hire a chauffeur or some other responsible driver to take her from place to place...

TMZ, who is writing these laughable Lindsay Lohan stories? Her friends are suppose to be reliable sources of truth? You can't have the smell of booze on you in 42 minutes? Somebody backstage at a concert is going to know sober? Poor Lindsay, picked on all the time. TMZ will protect your honor Lindsay, if you had any. At this point, I don't know who is more pathetic, Lohan or the TMZ reporter.

TMZ, you are VULTURES any time LiLo is involved in a story. Please lighten up on this poor girl. There are plenty of messed up celebs to chase.

Oh and Lindsay never lies right TMZ? lol Just like she lied when she said she was not at the club when that woman accused her of attacking her and then surveillance video proved she was there. I believe she probably hit the man since one detective thinks that she grazed him. If he has significant injuries that would prove it. Even if it is a setup, I don't feel sorry for her because she had already violated probation several times and got away with it. Like when she attacked the woman at the club, rearended the truck and lied to cops saying she wasn't driving and stealing the jewelry from that guys' mansion at the party. She deserves to go to jail!
