Sources at the L.A. City Attorney's Office tell TMZ ... they were unaware the Santa Monica City Attorney was going to file criminal charges against Lindsay until they read our post this morning.  They are "gathering information" but so far no decision has been made regarding a possible probation violation in Lindsay's jewelry heist case.

Lindsay Lohan
will be charged with the crime of lying to police after her car accident in June on Pacific Coast Highway ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... Lohan told cops she was NOT behind the wheel of her Porsche when it slammed into the back of an 18-wheeler.  Fact is she was -- according to multiple witnesses.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the case will be filed as a misdemeanor by the Santa Monica City Attorney ... possibly this week.

The charge could spell huge trouble for Lindsay, because she's currently on probation for the jewelry heist.  The criminal filing could trigger a probation violation, and Judge Stephanie Sautner -- the jewelry judge -- could send her to the slammer for a long, long time.

And law enforcement sources tell us ... cops found prescription pills in her purse after the crash.  Witnesses tell us pills were also scattered in her trunk.  Our sources say authorities were prepared to charge LiLo with drug crimes, but Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Holley, gave cops documentations from Lindsay's doctor, saying the pills were properly prescribed.  Authorities then backed off that charge.

As for the charge of lying to cops, Lindsay almost dodged that bullet.  You may recall, after the accident, Lindsay went to the hospital where she was interviewed by cops, and that's when she told them she wasn't behind the wheel.  Her lawyer, Shawn Holley, made a mad dash for the hospital to muzzle her client (see video), but she was a few minutes too late.

Comedy and crime -- it's all about timing.

I'm not wishing death on her because I don't do that but I do wish she would go far, far, away and we don't have to ever hear from her again. That girl and her family have serious problems that need to get fixed. She's washed up and needs to just go away and live her life outside of hollywood because it clearly isn't the place for her. Eventually we will hear a story about her being dead and no one will be surprised and that's quite sad.

Lindsay lied to the cops? No way! Lindsay never lies. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
It doesn't matter, they won't do anything, none of those judges out there in california have any balls to actually lock her(or any "celeb") up and give her the punishment she deserves.

Her "big" movie is coming out. TMZ PR machine must start to generate interest where there is none. She lied? Big news. She may be charged? Big news. She may serve time? Big laugh.

What took them so long? Will this finally be the moment when she has to server her time or will she only serve 1 hour because of over crowding, or will she get house arrest? Wait does she even have a residence? Auh screw it. We all know this skank for for some reason or other won't do an hour of jail time. CA should charge her ass for each day she stays in jail time. Make her pay for mistakes literally. How else is she going to learn?

I generally back Lindsay but in this case lying to the popo is just poor form. Worse Lindsay is way stupid because she could easily be found out and with strong evidence against her.

I can't believe with all her experience in dealing with the police she wasn't wise to this.

More of TMZ dramatising everything Lindsay Lohan does. She was in a TRAFFIC accident and a serious one at that, she was probably confused and scared. Trust TMZ to take issue with the LEGALLY prescribed medication in her car. What TMZ also forgot to mention was she was breathalized at the scene and it registered 0.00. As for that truck driver LMAO!!!!!!!
