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."

There is an easier more cost effective way to stay out of trouble ,Lindsay. Stay home and DO NOT DRIVE. If work is so important to you , well ..STOP RISKING IT.
Each time you blame others for your own stupidity ,l there goes another job. I would rather watch an actress who has learned from mistakes , than one who BLAMES EVERYTHING on others and clogs up the court system with BS like this.

Anyway, her police contact was 2 hours after the incident, they have no way of knowing her state at the time, they're not psychic. None of the people TMZ has claiming Lindsay wasn't intoxicated, were there.

Lohan has been off the wagon and partying since she left court. Just hasn't gotten caught yet.

Lohan was ARRESTED FOR LEAVING THE SCENE OF AN ACCIDENT.

What happened to her tight 'friend' Zapata who leaves his car keys for her to drive his cars when ever she's in the city and has her back`NO. Car title, registration, insurance, plates. The bright side is that Lohan didn't total this Porsche.

Lindsay needs alll the money she can get right now even if that means suing a short line cook. Maybe she is hoping he will cook up a batch of crack for her.


I was at a event in Central Park last night and I guess she was there too. No I didnt see her I was hanging with the non hard drug crowed.

Bitch cannot get jobs because she is uninsurable, a total coke head, lies to producers, gives no respect to the people that take a chance on her and hire her, and destroys property. Oh yeah, let's also not forget that she sends her hotel bills to the producers and lies to the media stating they would pay for her stay. She is a miserable dope head.

The better course would be for Lohan to sue for Rodriguez for filing a false police report. It is not defamation when it is filing a police report or testifying in court--just false reporting. If Rodriguez said all of this to a reporter, it was published in papers, online, and the interview played on television, Lohan could sue for both libel and slander-- she was defamed if she did not do what he accusses her of doing... Lohan has a poor reputation that she earned for herself and she has a very long way to rehabilitate her image. So far, she really has done nothing to rehabilitate her image.

Lindsay, you too look for a free paycheck by stealing jewelry and other things that do not belong to you.

Lohan is just trying to rehabilitate her image but I don't see her suing Rodriguez as helping her. If Lohan were really interested in rehabilitating her image she would learn to drive, not go out every night, go to work and focus on acting.

Rodriguez may be scamming; the surveillance film was not very clear and it did not look like he was hit. If Rodriguez is lying, Lohan will will. But, if Rodriguez was hit, Lohan has a problem because she hit a person and didn't stop. Her suing for defamation of character won't be really helpful to her if she did hit the man with her car.

I have to laugh at the Eturds. Every rotten person in NYC is just hanging out at every night club, waiting for their pay day. That is just frigging stupid. This guy did NOT say she was drunk. SOURCES said that he said she smelled of alcohol and was slurring her words. That is what he saw what he felt. He cannot be sued for that. Yet again I will say this. A soft tissue injury will not show up on an X-ray. He needs an MRI for that. UNTIL I see an MRI report saying there is no damage, I am going with the VICTIM here. He had NO idea Linds was going to be there, so to say he was just "waiting for his pay day" is asinine. Just like her "fans". Did you guys know that FAN is a shortened term for FANATIC? Research the word you dumbasses. ROFLMFAO.

Doesn't matter. Lohan was Arrested, charged ticketed for leaving the scene of an accident. She has a court date. It's up to the judge to throw it out.
