Here we go again.
Early Wednesday, 26-year-old actress Lindsay Lohan was allegedly parking a 2010 Porsche Cayenne in an alley crowded with people outside the Dream Hotel when she struck a man. After which she casually entered a club adjacent to the hotel. Nevermind hit-and-run because apparently, when it involves Lindsay, it’s hit-and-party.
According to the New York Police Department (NYPD), the man, who is in his 30s, was taken to the Bellevue Hospital for a knee injury sustained from the accident. He was clipped by the “low speed crash”. (Source)
At 2:30am, the NYPD arrived at the scene and arrested Lindsay, charging her for leaving the scene of an accident. She was then taken to New York’s 10th Precinct and was issued a desk appearance ticket. Following which, she was released pending a later court date. (Source)
As predicted, Lindsay is, of course, getting all busy telling anyone who’s willing to listen that she thinks that the incident is suspicious because the man didn’t appear to have any visible injuries. She also said that she had no idea she hit anybody and it wasn’t until she came out of the club and got arrested that she knew anything was going on.
No, LiLo, nobody is setting you up. Not if he has a hospital bill to prove it, at least.
This latest act of misdemeanor is, of course, on top of her “portfolio” of cases including two drunk-driving (DUI) incidents in 2007, spending 250 days in five rehab facilities dealing with drug and alcohol addiction, and being on probation for a shoplifting incident in 2011. (Source)
Can we heave a heavy sigh now?
