Lindsay Lohan's Assistant

Cops TWISTED My Words

EXCLUSIVE

Lindsay Lohan
's assistant is adamant ... he did NOT tell police Lindsay was driving at the time of her gnarly PCH accident this summer -- insisting cops are just making up stories to push criminal charges on the actress.

Gavin the assistant is telling friends, cops questioned him at the hospital where Lindsay was being treated post-accident -- but he neither confirmed nor denied whether Lindsay was driving the car.

Gavin's saying cops confronted him, saying they already knew Lindsay was driving because of the seat belt marks on her left shoulder -- indicating she was in the driver's seat -- and Gavin simply replied with a noncommittal "Okay."

Sources close to Gavin tell us, Gavin believes cops ran with his answer as an affirmative response ... and used it to convince the Santa Monica City Attorney to file a misdemeanor charge against Lindsay.

We're told Gavin's furious at cops for twisting his words, and now he doesn't want to cooperate with the investigation.

That said, he's willing to help Lindsay any way he can -- as if he hasn't done enough already.

The Santa Monica PD had no comment.

Wow ...    

The assistant remains silent as to who was behind the wheel. Therefore, we can reach the conclusion Lindsay was in fact driving and lied to the police - again.

Cops twisted his words BULL!!!!!! Lindsay is forcing him to say that and probably paying him off. If what he is saying is true then why didnt he come forward before. Its been 5 months since the accident. Regardless of what he is saying the police have other witnesses which include the driver of the 18 wheeler smashed into

This may be the dumbest story I have yet to read on TMZ. Gavin is afraid of losing his drug hook up but junkies usually always turn on eachother is the end.


"he neither confirmed nor denied whether Lindsay was driving the car." WTF does that mean. What is so hard about a simple question of who was driving? Its pretty simple Gavin if you were driving you say yes if not then you say no. Why wouldnt you confirm it?


Then he says "okay" when the cops say Lindsay was the driver. Why wouldnt he say "no officer I was driving not LIndsay" WTF man get these crack heads off the street. Whitney was right crack is whack.

Non-committal "okay"

hmm...don't know what to think.....seeing as how they could probably prove she lied anyway (from the many statements made from other witnesses) why would they have to stoop to such low tactics? If there were lots of witnesses that said she was driving, contrary to what LL said, wouldn't that be enough? Instead they worded the question in such a way that was only meant to bait him into getting the answer they wanted...again, I just don't understand why they would need to do this with all the witnesses they already had? Just so unnecessary...unless of course, Gavin is lying... which is entirely possible, given the type of company he keeps...

Gavin wishes he was that important.


No one gives a crap what he says and there's no way that the case rests on HIS testimony.

I don't get how his words were twisted. The cops told they knew Lindsay was driving and he just said "Okay". Nothing was twisted. He admitted it was then and there. And it was posted many times that he said Lindsay was driving and not once did he try to defend her. Until now.

This is just damage control. Real lame ass way too late damage control.

All he has to do is go in and say hey I was driving not her and that would solve it but he won't do that because he knows it would be a lie and he would be charged with lying.
