TMZ is reporting that at around 2 a.m. ET Wednesday (Sept. 19), Lohan was parking her Porsche Cayenne in downtown New York City when she reportedly clipped the leg of a pedestrian, but finished parking and went inside the Dream Hotel.
Someone called the police and when she emerged from the hotel 30 minutes later, officers supposedly arrested her. She was reportedly booked for leaving the scene of an accident, which is a misdemeanor, and was released with a ticket.
Sources say alcohol was not involved, though the pedestrian who was allegedly hit did go to the hospital just to get checked out, but did not have any visible injuries.
The problem arises for Lilo because she’s on probation and one condition is that she not break the law. It remains to be seen if she is brought into court for a probation violation.
UPDATE: TMZ says Lindsay is telling friends she had no idea she hit anybody and calls the incident “really fishy” because the man didn’t appear injured. She says she’ll fight this incident to the end.
UPDATE II: TMZ has sources at the hotel that say the surveillance footage of the incident may lend credence to Lilo’s assessment that something is “fishy.” It reportedly shows her barely grazing the pedestrian (or not hitting him at all, it’s hard tell) and then he sprints down the parking ramp after her. However, Lilo weirdly does decide to leave the hotel minutes after arriving, drives off and returns a short time later.
