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.

Lilo, don't be discouraged,
The Man he ain't so hard to understand.
Lilo, if you try now,
I know that you can lend a helping hand.

Because there's good in everyone
And a new day has begun
You can see the morning sun if you try.

And I know, things will be better
Oh yes they will for Lilo and the Man
Yes they will for Lilo and the Man.

The gold digger I mean victim sprinted after her running like an athlete in a marathon....then called 911 for an ambulance and hospital.
Yeah 'cause, you know, when you're injured badly enough to require ambulance and hospital, you can sprint and run across parking lots :D

I am not one to normally stick up for Lindsay Lohan but this is F*CKING RIDICULOUS! The guy went to the hospital in an ambulance?! F*CK YOU buddy. You're fine. You noticed it was Lindsay & decided to commit fraud. How gross & obnoxious that the incompetent police arrested her for "fleeing the scene of an accident" when there was no accident!

Congratulations Lindsay, It sounds like you're finally growing up. If you went down the ramp at a crawl that was a great choice. A better choice would be to wait till the guy clears the pedestrian walk but why quibble. Such progress.

Even if Lindsay did "graze" the guy, how could you feel that impact in an SUV? Security tapes don't lie, but the guy sounds like he filed a false report (not knowing he was on tape, hoping for a he said, she said debate, and with LL's record, who'd believe her).

I can't figure out why I give two do-do's about her, but I'd like to see her finally clean up her act.

What is with these young girls and driving? Somebody in Hollywood should start an actresses' driving academy. I'm being serious. It's a skill, it can be learned.

Its obvious this guy is lying through his back teeth. The NYPD should prosecute him.

Well if the self-proclaimed victim is seen "sprinting" after the alleged contact with the car he obviously didn't needed to call an ambulance... Now I would not leave a driving license to anyone not able to realize he is touching pedestrians with his car...

well. well. well. She might be telling the truth after all. but damn she just can't stay out of trouble can she. Why is she out that late anyway? I thought she was suppose to be keeping a low profile and working on rebuilding her career. Not going out clubbing.

do yourself a favor and stick to chronological order on your front page. This posting appears to at least partly exonerate her, and still you're trying to accumulate cheap clicks by leaving the "ARRESTED" post on top. Potentially confusing ppl about the order of events.

Shabby tactics, guys, that's what it's looking like.
