Lindsay Lohan Arrest

Surveillance Video

Shows Entire Incident

9/19/2012 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Surveillance video at The Dream hotel in NYC shows the guy who claims Lindsay Lohan struck him is grossly exaggerating his claim at the very least ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the hotel tell us ... the video shows the entire incident and the aftermath.  Lindsay was driving into the hotel, down a ramp. The alleged victim was walking in the pedestrian path, which Lindsay had to cross.

The video shows Lindsay's car -- which is traveling at a crawl -- gets very close to the pedestrian but it's unclear if the vehicle makes contact. In fact, sources tell us ... 2 detectives came to the hotel early this morning and viewed the tape. One detective felt Lindsay's car "grazed" the back of the alleged victim's leg, but the other detective felt the car never made contact.

And it gets better. Once Lindsay clears the area and goes down a ramp, the video shows the alleged victim sprinting after her. The video shows the alleged victim does not get real close to Lindsay, and it doesn't appear that he confronted her, but it appears when he got down there he noticed it was Lindsay -- partly because she had drawn a crowd near the entrance to the club.

When Lindsay gets out of the car at the bottom of the ramp, she does not seem flustered or aware she may have hit someone.

Here's where it gets confusing. For some reason, Lindsay decided to leave the club minutes after arriving, got back in her car and left for a short time ... then came back.

Meanwhile, the alleged victim called 911 and was taken to the hospital by ambulance.

If she hit him put her in jail. If she didnt put him in jail for lying. Its that simple. I have faith in my NYPD so I know they will make the right call on this one. Im a New Yorker so I understand the guy running after her after he was hit, Id do the same thing. Also if she didnt hit him why the f*k would he be running after her in the first place?

Bad enough we have to worry about crazy Taxi drivers and those bike delivery people now we must worry about Lindsay Lohan. Who is going to move here next? Amanda Bynes?

I think it's the "victim" who needs to be charged in this one. It all reeks of bs.

thumbs me down all you want, but from the first story i thought it sounded rather strange... how can you hit someone, not know you hit someone but still check your car for damages?
people know lindsay is a trainwreck waiting to happen, and in the court of public opinion she'll be guilty of everything under the sun.... i honestly think the guy is just looking for a quick buck off the lohan disaster trail....
should she be driving? no.... should she disappear so this stops happening? yes.... but fair is fair, and there are a lot of greedy people out there and americans love to sue to make $$$....

Lindsay said it was fishy because the guy had no visible injuries. How does she know he had no visible injuries if she said she didn't know it happened? Also, she said NO ONE got out of the car, and the surveillance tape shows HER getting out - This girl just can't tell the truth if her life depended on it.

I'm curious about how authentic the "call my dad" part of the original story is.

Lindsay did not seem flustered because she does not care that she hit someone.
