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.

i have been driving for nearly 30 years and I have NEVER -- EVER even come close to hitting anyone and have only had one car accident where I was the driver, and that was when I was 18. No DUIs. How is it that LL has an accident 2x THIS year but "none" are her fault. If someone even grazed me -- I would follow them, get the plate & call the cops. If she's going so slow, then how doesn't she see she's close to a pedestrian? How does a pedestrian see the driver of a car who hit them well enough to know it was Firecrotch? How stupid is she? So many questions... so few brain cells. Lindsay is a waste of skin.

its time they leave lindsay alone, give her a break. The guy seem to be craving $$. But why would Lindsay be even driving herself in a place like NYC?

I say if she did not hit him why was he chasing the car and he did not know who she was at that time... Cime on NYPD use logic He would not be chasing her if he did not have gotten hit Common sense.

"She [Lohan] said, 'You gotta move,' " the victim said. "She went inside the club and another guy jumped in the car and drove off.""

Funny she said the same thing to that cone.

From The Superficial
"So remember not even two days ago when Lindsay Lohan thought she was in any sort of position to go on Twitter and bash Amanda Bynes? Turns out God did and made this happen even though I masturbate and eat shellfish. (No Ratner.) TMZ reports:

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Lindsay was pulling in to park her Porsche Cayenne near the Dream Hotel in downtown NYC when — at a very low speed — she allegedly hit the knee of a 30-something year old guy. That was around shortly after midnight.
We’re told one of Lindsay’s passengers in the SUV got out and checked the vehicle for damage, and then LiLo and co. went inside the hotel.
We’re told someone called police while Lindsay was inside … and when she walked out of the hotel — around 2:30AM ET — officers arrested her.

Lindsay was booked on a misdemeanor for leaving the scene of an accident except we all know she’s clearly a victim of anti-Disneyism in a pro-Nickelodeon world. She can still feel those spongy hands “checking her for needles” to the delight of a starfish giggling in the corner, his eyes never quite meeting hers. In the distance, a squirrel in a spacesuit cracked an even smile and cooed, “Yes, yes. All according to plan"

If she didn't hit him, it's time for her to get tough like Justin Bieber did and go after him, sue his ass off for anything she can sue him for.

She stopped at the bottom of the ramp to be certain she had not hit anyone. If their were any complains she would hear it once she stepped out of her car into a crowd of people. She left the club with the intent to flee, but returning feeling safe there were no complains... Once she got back to the club a rumor of an alleged victim surfaced causing her to flee the club a second time.

He probably wanted to get the license plate number. I would do the same thing if a car even grazed by body. Running means nothing, Lindsay hit him, that's all that matters.

all about the money    

Sounds like someone looking for a payday. Hope the "victim" gets hauled into jail for falsifying a police report. If it was all faked NY city maybe buy Lilo some jewelry for false arrest.
