Lohan, who was arrested for leaving the scene after allegedly clipping 34-year-old chef Jose Rodriguez’s knee in an alleyway on Wednesday in New York City, is telling friends she will get off scot-free after surveillance footage revealed she didn’t even touch the victim.
The incident happened at the Dream Hotel in Manhattan when Lohan pulled into a hotel parking garage in her Porsche Cayenne at around 2 a.m. at a low speed as Rodriguez was walking by.
Lohan was arrested at around 2:30 a.m. and booked for a misdemeanor charge of leaving the scene of an accident causing injury and was released with a desk appearance ticket that didn’t require posting bail.
The alleged victim in the case told police he had a knee injury and was taken to a local hospital.
Lindsay’s rep Steve Honig told RadarOnline.com: “They should press charges against people who make false allegations and waste the time and resources of New York’s hardworking law enforcement.”
It was feared the incident would cause more problems for Lindsay, and could have prompted an investigation in Los Angeles of a possible probation violation from her 2011 jewelry theft case, which runs until May 2014.
Meanwhile, Lohan has been hard at work. She recently completed the Lifetime biopic Liz & Dick and The Canyons. She’s also filmed a scene with Charlie Sheen in Scary Movie 5.
