TMZ has obtained surveillance footage showing the moment Lindsay Lohan allegedly struck a pedestrian in front of a NYC hotel ... and one thing is clear -- NOTHING IS CLEAR.

The footage begins as Lindsay's black Porsche is in the street, attempting to pull in to the hotel parking garage ... which was blocked by several pedestrians.

Seemed like Lindsay was making a slow entrance ... but a man in a plaid shirt can be seen walking in front of the car ... and she MAY have made contact with him. It's hard to tell.

After the alleged collision ... the man (who claimed he was injured) can be seen SPRINTING into the parking garage in an effort to catch up to Lindsay's car.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay was later arrested for leaving the scene of an accident.

The alleged victim claims he was hospitalized for injuries sustained in the alleged impact ... and says Lindsay reeked of booze at the time of the incident.

For her part, Lindsay ADAMANTLY denies she did anything wrong and claims the allegations are total BS.

OK I just watched this a few more times and you should too. It is actually clear that she never stopped at all and that she hit him. If fact it looks like he had his back turned to her and you can see that every one reacts and watch him and then comment to each other while watching the car pull away from him

Ok...so the charge is her leaving the scene of an accident. The police have to determine if there was an accident first. To do that they will take witness accounts, if any. There looks to be many so we will have to see if they come forward. They will also check medical records. Keep in mind, it doesn't matter how hurt he was. It can be a minor scrape for all they care...just some proof that there was contact. If that happens then she would most likely be found guilty.

my this one must really be true considering all the "i'm no blohan fan but..." that have come out.

The ironic part of this is she probably didn't truly for once in her decrepit and pitiful existence of a life didn't harm him at all and he will get still get some sort of insurance payout as stupid left and stupid hit him. and she deserves it for all the garbage that this waste of life has gotten away with all these years in cali....

I don't think this will be obsolete Dina remember NY doesn't play like Cali and don't care who your ******* of a child is...

This guy is a complete liar. Lindsays car makes a very slow entrance, he walks in front of HER, there is NO evidence of any hit and then he runs after the car.

Lock him up for filing a false report.

Let's put this idea of some sort of money grab to rest. Insurance companies only cover medicals these days and I have worked many of these type of cases. Personal Injury cases are a no win and are only for ambulance chaser attorneys now. The insurance company will settle enough to pay the medicals and attorney fees up to a point. Same with slip and falls etc. The last case we did was for a real estate client that asked us to help out when she was in an accident on a Santa Monica bus and she was settled on 2 years after the fact with $9000.00 and her medicals were $4500 and attorneys took majority of the rest.

This scam artist also told the NYDaily News and the NYPost that when the car hit him, the car was travelling at high speed, and he fell to one side with the pain. He didn't know about the survelliance video when he talked to them. There are witnesses hopefully. CHARGE HIM

From watching the video and as part of my work I have to watch surveillance tapes (at times not everyday I am not claiming to be Inspector Gadget over here) I come to the conclusion that this tape is crap. Too many people are in the way. I can’t even see if the guy went down or where the car hit him as there are too many people in the way when the car allegedly made contact. All there is, is the reaction of the alleged victim and the crowed. The entire crowed turned to look at her car but is that because she hit him or because she beeped her horn? Also the guy looks as though he literally walked right into her car but he could have been walking and not have noticed her car was pulling in until it was too late and he thought to himself she would stop and let him walk by but instead she kept going(yes annoying but pedestrians have the right of way). He was close enough to that car where it looks like contact could have been made but due to the crowed you cant see. His reaction from what I see just living in NYC is typical NYC reaction of either A) being clipped (usually taxi’s are the offenders) or B) Someone who was cut off by her and royally pissed. His reaction does show something happened. Either A or B.


It boils down to what all the witness statements will say and also his injuries.

If you are loitering in a driveway and a vehicle wants to enter the driveway you have a responsibility to move and allow the vehicle to enter. These people were not moving or walking, they saw the vehicle slowly and cautiously approach and decided not to move an inch. Typical BS disrespectful NY attitude toward vehicles, not surprised that NY ers get run over everyday of the year. If it were LA the people would have moved but NY ers have a bad attitude toward drivers and don't like to move out of the way. Mr. Rodriguez said he was struck by a fast moving vehicle that came out of nowhere and that he was knocked to the side by the car....Liar!! maybe he just wanted some Morphine because he ran out of heroin.

Wow ...    

Doesn't comparative negligence apply? He basically walked into a moving vehicle. However, she needed to stop and wait for the driveway to be free and clear of pedestrians, since they always have the right of way.

“In the attached video, a vehicle driven by the actress Lindsay Lohan is seen turning into a location where a pedestrian passes in front of the car with his back toward it,” according to a police statement.

“The same individual is then seen standing by the side of the car as it enters and, later still, walking after it as the car moves down the passageway. The same individual reported that he was struck by the vehicle as it turned into the location. Faces of complainant/witnesses are intentionally blurred. “
