Lindsay Lohan

I'm Suing the Dude

Who Said I Was Wasted

9/23/2012 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0922-tmz-lindsay-lohanLinsday Lohan may be a really bad driver, but she was not a really bad drunk driver this week ... so she's going to sue the guy who accused her of DWB -- Driving While Blotto.

You'll recall.... Jose Rodriguez claims Lindsay struck him while she was driving a Porsche this week in NYC.  Rodriguez gave an interview to a reporter and claimed Lindsay was slurring and "smelled like alcohol real bad" at the time of the incident.

The cops and others say Lindsay had not been drinking and alcohol was not a factor in the alleged incident.

We're told Lindsay believes she could lose work if people think she's off the wagon, so she's planning on suing Rodriguez for defamation.

Lindsay is saying, "I'm tired of people lying just to score a quick paycheck."

She looks so stupid in the above pic in those aviators and a phone. Yeah, you're always the hip fashionita Lohan. This is a girl who once up a time, not long ago at all, had millions of dollars and now has to resort to suing and blowing rich men in order to live. Totally pathetic.

"Yeah Harvey, I'd like to interject. Personally, I think Lindsay should sue on this one. I think she makes a valid point that this guy is out to run her image now that she's back on track. I really think the industry might take a hard look at her if they think she's drinking." - Regards, Mike Walters - TMZ Staff

You'd think Lohan would be sick of spending so much time in court.

She needs to be fined -- a big fat fine too -- for filing frivolous lawsuits. 1) His statement was phrased as opinion/observation, not fact, and therefore is protected speech under the U.S. Constitution and 2) saying she seemed drunk would never amount to liable even if it were stated as a flat-out fact, given she has multiple DUIs, etc.

Is she going to sue the restaurant waiter who said she was drinking with her mother on Dina's birthday - mixed drinks made with vodka, if I remember correctly? He said the two of them had quite a few - doesn't that qualify as "falling off the wagon"?

Wasn't it quite a while afterward that the police saw Lindsay? That's the run part of the hit and run... She didn't stick around. Because of the time delay, I don't think whatever they observed could be used to prove the guy's statement was false. TMZ with its CIA-like investigative skills should find out exactly what the lass was doing between the incident and the time she was arrested. The police did not test her for anything, which would have helped confirm or refute the idea that she was drunk or drugged at the time of the incident. So they really don't know.

To prove defamation, she would have to show she actually lost work. Now, on to the fun stuff. He didn't say she was drunk. She loses on that count. It was more than TWO HOURS later that the cops arrested her. I could do some serious sobering up in that time period. She can't prove sh!t. I have to laugh, she said she was going to sue James from her PCH wreck, nothing. Wonder why that is? And don't forget, THAT is still an ongoing investigation. By running to NYC and refusing to speak to the California cops, she's going to look like a damned fool in court. Basically, she isn't taking this to court. The judge would throw it out of court, laughing the entire time.

It is sad buy Lilo herself is no stranger to lying is she? And as for quick paychecks, how about stealing? That's a quick paycheck, too, isn't it?
