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.

Nothing is gonna happen. TMZ will put a positive spin on this story by the end of business day today. Just like that time when TMZ was so sure LiLo and her assistant were going to be charged for stealing crap at that party held at some billionaire's house. Jail for a long, long time? Ha! I doubt it! The probability of this chick ending up dead somewhere is higher than her getting hard jail time.

Typical TMZ over hyping the prescription drugs as usual, don't TMZ have any sort of principles? isn't there anything they won't print about this woman? Lindsay Lohan was prescribed non narcotic medication but TMZ won't tell you that, its not dramatic enough.

The water bottle at the side of the road some of you are talking about, even the cops said there was no evidence it contained alcohol or if it even came from Lindsays car, you all forgotten she was alcohol tested by the cops and it registered ZERO.

This is TMZ doing what they always do, over hyping everything for the hits. if Lindsay lied at first to the cops and then admitted she was driving, I put that down to the woman been scared outta her mind,

Listen to the enablers...she was 'confused' about who was driving...hours after the accident! LOL!!! I think the people that are 'confused' are the enablers themselves. They'll stoop to anything, just like Lindsay!

And she wasn't breathalyzed at the accident site...just another 'confused' enabler!

And there's the switch! What's wrong, Messenger, wasn't Susan good enough? Had to bring out the alternate account?!

If you check above, you'll see where I've pulled one of your comments from a related story from months ago, where you say, verbatim, the same exact thing Susan (you) said on the previous page. Not very good at covering your tracks! You are one SICK PUPPY!!!!

Nevermind the fact that what you said turned out to be FALSE, in terms of what Sgt. Lewis supposedly said.

Keep on reaching for your dreams SUSAN/MESSENGER! You can do it!!!

Poor poor Massengill. It has to resort to worshipping a loser like Lindsay Lohan, just to make itself feel better about its own life. Talk about setting the bar LOW!
