Stefania D’Alessandro/Getty Images for amfAR(NEW YORK) — Lindsay Lohan plans to sue the man who’s accused her of striking him with her car in New York City last week.

According to, Lohan plans to file a defamation lawsuit against 34-year-old Jose Rodriguez, the alleged victim in her hit-and-run case.  The Mean Girls star’s Porsche turned toward a crowd near the Dream Hotel in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood last Wednesday when she allegedly struck Rodriguez.

TMZ reports Lohan believes she may lose work because of a comment Rodriguez made that she smelled of alcohol at the time of the incident.  Police have said alcohol was not a factor in the alleged accident.

Lohan reportedly has told those close to her, “I’m tired of people lying just to score a quick paycheck.”

Following the incident, she was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of leaving the scene of an accident.
