Lindsay Lohan Could Face Charges From Alleged Hit and Run
UPDATE: Lindsay Lohan claims she didn’t hit a nightclub manager with her Porsche early Wednesday morning.
“Scrape? This is all a complete lie,” she tweeted Wednesday. “I’ve been at community service. Last night, I attempted to wish a friend happy birthday, which I didn’t even get to do because I was freaked out by all of the paparazzi. These false accusations are absurd.”
(LOS ANGELES) — Lindsay Lohan allegedly hit a nightclub manager with her Porsche early Wednesday morning and left the scene, potentially piling a new legal problem onto what was almost a clean plate.
ABC News’ Los Angeles affiliate KABC cited an LAPD rep who said the actress “grazed” a man while trying to maneuver out of the parking lot of the Sayers Club, where she was partying. Police did not find any evidence of injury and the man did not want to file a report. Since she did not hit a car or injure anyone, authorities did not take a police report.
TMZ.com reports that the man now wants to press charges. According to TMZ, he’s the 26-year-old manager of the Hollywood Hookah lounge, which is in the same complex as the Sayers Club, and didn’t know who Lohan was when she grazed him.
Lohan’s rep declined ABC News’ request for comment.
Last month, the judge presiding over Lohan’s probation stemming from her 2011 shoplifting case and 2007 DUI gave her a glowing review at a progress hearing and said the 25-year-old actress could be done with her probation in March if she stays on track. Lohan could face a potential probation violation if the lounge manager decides to press charges.
