Lindsay Lohan Arrest

Surveillance Video

Shows Entire Incident

EXCLUSIVE

0918_dream_hotel_03
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.

I've never even ALMOST run over a person with my car. Like ever. How many times has she hit or almost hit someone? Also, she must hold the record on how many times she's been arrested as well as number of lawsuits against her. I wonder if she even realizes that people don't just get arrested on a daily basis. Even criminals and drug addicts. Such a classy girl.

Rushes to judgment, that people constantly do with Lindsay, is never a good idea. Still, more facts need to come out. And Lindsay should think of not driving at all or only when she absolutely has to. This probably will turn into a nothing story.

Why would you call a place a "DREAM" when it looks like a big steel plate with a bunch of submarine holes in it? This looks more like a Nightmare to me, just hand someone a square peg and invite them to put it in the holes.

OK, let me get this straight. This guy was walking ON A PEDESTRIAN WALKWAY. Lohan comes down the ramp; albeit slowly, and "grazes his leg." I think that would mean he was where he was supposed to be and she didn't have control of her car. I guess if she would have plowed into a bunch of people on a sidewalk the detectives would have said it was a non-incident? I thought better of the NYC cops.

You don't get it the Cops had enough evidence to arrest her ass....period
end of story....
She left to get rid of any drug
evidence stupid !!!
By the way the judge for probation didn't say she had to be convicted of anything before she was violated...she violates if she is arrested period....OBAY ALL LAWS ...

So lets bring on the Denials...the Deversions...and you know we done this countless times before.....!!!!

"But it's unclear if the vehicle makes contact." The fact that there is disagreement over the surveillance is a little bad, so the behavior of the people who were in the car tells the story.

The guy could've gotten hit. I don't think that's an impossibility. I also think it's a possibility that the guy wasn't hit but hated how it was too close for him and decided to rant at the crazy driver who was close to hitting him. So he runs after her and finds out that he was nearly hit by a celebrity or someone with money and it's time to cash in.

It is almost never as simple as it seems with her. All I can say is Teflon Lohan.

New York State law says that pedestrians have the right of way in a cross walk, therefore Linday should not have been even close eough for any claims to be made. You see someone waliking across the road YSE YOUR BRAKE AND STOP. So even if this guy is making **** up Lindsay pu herself in this position. No one should be even grazed by a car. That is why the guy ran after her.That arrogant bitch only thinks of herself.Instead of going to clubs how about hitting -pun intended- a AA meeting, oh that rifgt they are anonymous, no publicity i doing that.
