Lindsay Lohan was arrested for leaving the scene of an accident early this morning after allegedly hit a pedestrian in downtown Manhattan, reports TMZ. Lindsay was pulling in to park her Porsche Cayenne near the Dream Hotel in downtown NYC when she allegedly hit the knee of a 30-something year old man shortly after midnight.
Lindsay passenger checked the vehicle for damage then they went inside the hotel. Lindsay is telling friends she had no idea she hit anybody and it wasn’t until she came out and got arrested that she knew anything was going on. Lindsay said no one got out of the car and the incident was ‘really fishy’ because the man didn’t appear to have any visible injuries and feels she’s the victim of a set up.
