lohan runs down man with porsche, flees like a mad woman
Oh, LiLo. Just when you'd convinced us all - including Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner - that you're on the road to recovery and redemption, you allegedly strike a man with your sports car and peel out into the Hollywood night.
While driving out of the parking lot (in her new Porsche) of Sayers Club in Hollywood just after midnight Wednesday, Lindsay Lohan was reportedly blocked by paparazzi and bystanders around the nearby Hookah Lounge. Lohan, according to TMZ, attempted a 3-point turn, grazing the knee and car of the lounge's 26-year-old manager who was standing by his car. But instead of braking to make sure the man was uninjured, the 25-year-old actress fled the scene "like a mad woman," a witness told a TMZ video reporter.
Police arrived at the scene, interviewed the manager and some Hookah Lounge patrons, then left. Sources told TMZ Lohan may have called the cops due to the swarm of paparazzi, which is why they responded.
Initially, the manager said he was uninjured and "got up and started smoking his hookah," said the witness. However, after learning of the driver's identity, he reportedly began complaining of an injury and headed to the emergency room. He plans to press charges and hire a lawyer, which will prompt police to open a hit-and-run investigation.
If the man is injured, Lohan will have violated her probation (again) in the necklace shoplifting case. Sautner told Lohan during a court hearing February 22, "Miss Lohan, you're in the home stretch." Well, the finish line might be appearing foggier in light of this morning's stunt.
