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.

Why is she still on probation? I have been on probation for three years, mostly for WEED. Why is she still on probation? I have a great idea. How about taking Linds OFF probation, so she can't get into more trouble being ON probation? I am 25. WHY IS SHE STILL ON PROBATION????

smittenkitten, only a mug like you would dismiss the results of a breathalizer with a 0.00 result. If TMZ are right and she is charged it will be for saying she wasn't driving after a serious accident when she was probably confused, in shock, scared, or all three. This has nothing to do with legal medication but keep putting that spin on it, thats what haters do.

Well, well - We already knew she was a LIAR, this merely confirms it - AGAIN

She's been skirting jail time forever it seems. Now perhaps now.. she'll get some real training where it
really does count.

I wonder how many "properly prescribed medications" the dearly departed Anna Nicole Smith had in her possession at any given moment....

It's not really that hard to stay out of trouble unless you're truly an idiot. I think Hollywood should lose this girl's number and she should be destitute until she finally decides to get sober. This is an idiot person. I feel sorry for her, but then again, I don't. I still hope she can get her act together, but if I were a serious director or movie guy, I wouldn't let her come near.

Oh I found something awesome in an old related story, and I just wanted to link it for the sake of posterity:

MESSENGER

"TMZ why don't you report Lindsay was given a breathalyzer in the hospital at the reading was 0.00, I guess that doesn't fit your agenda,


Also Sgt. Richard Lewis of thre Santa Monica Police Dept said your story about Lindsay "Lies to cops" is untrue and he doesn't know "Where that information came from" Your bullying of Lindsay Lohan goes on."

I'm sure this Susan person and Messenger have a lot in common....like their entire set of DNA....same parents...shoe size....home address.....

So much for the veracity of Sgt. Lewis! HA!!
