When the “Mean Girls” actress left the nightclub, she was swarmed by paparazzi and onlookers including the alleged victim, manager of a nearby Hookah Lounge, grazing the 26-year-old unnamed man’s knee when she attempted a three-point turn.
Why did Lohan flee the scene?
Apparently the actress, who recently received high marks from the judge presiding over her probation, assumed the man was fine.
Well, police were called, who may have been phoned by the now redhead actress, to assess the incident and upon investigation considered all involved good to go and case closed unless said struck person contact them citing injury.
Couple hours later, and arguably after research on who actually struck him, the non-US citizen later complained of a need to go to the emergency room with plans to hire an attorney to formally press charges against Lindsay.
“Cops told us they will open a hit-and-run investigation if the manager files a report.”
Tricky part is Lohan could come out of this fairly well if the manager isn’t indeed injured, if not, that could constitute the crime of a hit-and-run—affecting her probation status. In the latest update according to LA Times, Officer Norma Eisenman of the Los Angeles police department does not consider the case a hit and run.
The “Parent Trap” actress was experiencing some recent career highs with being part of Saturday Night Live’s highest rated show of the season when she hosted and reportedly signed on with Lifetime to play Elizabeth Taylor in the late actress’ biopic.
