Lindsay Lohan claims she didn’t hit a nightclub manager with her Porsche early Wednesday morning, as Los Angeles police and other reports claim she did.
“Scrape? This is all a complete lie,” she tweeted today. “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.”
Her rep, Steve Honig, released a statement explaining, ”Lindsay stopped by the club to drop in on a friend’s birthday party. When she arrived, there were so many photographers there that she decided to leave and never even got out of the car. At no point was there ever any indication that her car hit anyone or anything. We are confident this matter will be cleared up in the next few days.”
This morning, 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.
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.
