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.

Didn't she accuse the truck driver of lying? Now it's time for someone to come out and sue her for libel/defamation/whatever it is she sues everyone else for but that a private individual could show her slander caused reputational and/or actual money damage.

The judge will not do anything but once again give her a lecture. I want to know why if they found pills they did not make her take a drug test. Even if she is prescribed she could still be abusing them.

At the very least this turn of events puts Liz & Dick in an insurance mess. Lilo might not serve any time. But anyone looking to hire her for anything will see that the "free" publicity comes at a very steep price.

She may not serve time but if she is found guilty for this I hope this adds some fuel for a civil suit from the town truck driver. She did blame him publicly. I'd love to see him sue the crap out of her... she might serve jail but getting hit with a civil suit for big bucks would be at least some real punishment for this twit.

Make up your mind TMZ, is the filing misdemeanor or criminal. They are not the same.

Nothing is going to happen to Lindsay. We know you don't go to jail for lying to cops, and she won't get any additional time on her probation either.

Don't you wonder what type of a person the enablers are in real life? I really wonder what type of person thinks so highly of someone that is a convicted thief, has been caught driving drunk, not once but twice, has lied to the police, has been to jail 5 times and rehab 5 times, and according to her Mother, continues to drink. Are they convicts themselves? Do they drink and drive? Do they think nothing of lying in court or to the police?
