2:10 PM PT -- Dr. Sierra's rep has released a statement saying the reality star was "completely unaware of anyone (other than the new owner) driving the vehicle."

The statement continues ... "Through filming for Real Housewives of Miami, press engagements, and crazy travel schedules, the paperwork has not been executed 100% for the sale of the Porsche. But [Dr. Sierra] is not responsible for the unfortunate occurrence that took place with Ms. Lohan and the pedestrian. “

4:08 PM PT -- As for Domingo ... his rep tells TMZ, the painter is aware of the allegations against Lindsay Lohan and doesn't give a crap. According to the rep, Domingo willingly gives Lindsay his car whenever she needs it. In fact, he permanently leaves a pair of keys for her in NYC.

One of the ladies from "Real Housewives of Miami" did a really stupid thing ... she sold the car that Lindsay Lohan was driving this morning when she allegedly struck a pedestrian ... but the registration hasn't been changed, and now she could be on the hook if the alleged victim sues.

Here's the deal -- sources tell TMZ, the Porsche Cayenne Lindsay was driving this morning when she allegedly hit a pedestrian belongs to an artist named Domingo Zapata, a close friend of Lindsay's.  We're told ... roughly 2 months ago Domingo bought the car from Karent Sierra, the "Real Housewives of Miami" star who is also Domingo's dentist.  But the registration hasn't been changed.

0919_karent_domingo_twitterUnder New York law, if the owner of a car gives express or even implied permission for someone to drive and that person gets in an accident that causes property damage or injury, the victims can go after the owner.

As for whether Karent gave express or implied permission ... that's ultimately up to a judge, but if she handed Domingo the keys without telling him no one else could drive it ... she could be screwed.

So what are the chances that this guy doesn't even know that Blohan's been using his car?
.
I guess once you give Lindsay a key to your place she runs down to the Home Depot and makes multiple keys. Then while you're in Miami, she can ransack the place at her leisure.
.
And how freaking idiotic is that Dentist to sell a car and not bother to change the bill of sale/registration.

Is there anyone Lohan doesn't take down with her??

Eddie Trunk had the misfortune of standing next to Lohan during the Slash concert. He took the picture of her. Perhaps he'll have to testify as to whether he saw her drink. I don't want Lohan anywhere near me.

If her PO doesn't do anything about her getting arrested, it is going to feul her to commit more crimes.

Ya'll know damn well that it wasn't Liho fault!!!
She was doing her friend a favor of returning his car to the Dream, since she was on her way there anyways for her bi-weekly AA meeting.
As for the guy (victim) he is a mind reader....he knew she was coming there at that time and planned on being hit by her, he intends on suing her for MILLIONS!
The state of New York is out to get Liho!!!

This is an article designed to distract attention from the reason why Lindsay was arrested: She was arrested for leaving the scene of an accident, not for hitting the pedestrian -- and TMZ has reported the injuries themselves were minor.

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

I wonder why Blohan got a room at the CM in her name and ran up that $46 K bill when she was squatting in Zapatas 'studio' for several months prior? Obviously, their on good terms as she's driving his car. Odd . . .
