Lindsay Lohan -- Pulls Switcheroo After Incident

Lindsay Lohan SWAPPED SEATS with her passenger after allegedly striking a club manager in Hollywood early this morning.

Here's the deal -- while Lohan was leaving The Sayers Club after allegedly striking a 26-year-old just after midnight Wednesday ... she was photographed BEHIND THE WHEEL of her Porsche.

But a short time later, Lohan's car was parked next to two police cars on a nearby street ... with Lindsay now sitting in the passenger seat ... and her passenger in the driver's seat ... the ol' Switcheroo.

It's unclear if Lindsay was trying to dupe cops ... or simply didn't feel like driving anymore.

Lohan was not arrested ... and cops tell us they will only open a hit-and-run investigation if the manager files a report.
