Lindsay Lohan is telling her close friends and associates that she never would have deliberately lied to cops when asked if she was driving the car that rear-ended an eighteen wheeler in Santa Monica, Calif. last summer. Rather, the actress insists she was extremely confused after the accident, RadarOnline.comis exclusively reporting.
“Both airbags were deployed when Lindsay rear-ended the dump truck on Pacific Coast Highway last summer. She doesn’t remember exactly what she said to cops while being treated for injuries she sustained at the hospital,” a source close to the actress tells us.
“There was a lot of commotion in the emergency room, and Lindsay was extremely upset and concerned for [her assistant] Gavin, who was also in the car with her. Gavin was bleeding, and Lindsay was just freaking out. There were cops coming at her from every angle, and her primary concern was making sure that Gavin was OK. She was also stressed-out because she had been en route to the set of Liz & Dick. Lindsay says she was very confused after the accident and would never deliberately lie to the cops,” the insider added.
Also, word is that L.A. really wants to get Lindsay this time. After Lindsay is formally charged with being a liar, liar, pants on fire, there’s going to be a probation violation hearing, and prosecutors don’t even want to play games. They’re going to ask the judge to sentence her to up to a year in jail. Awesome.
Oh, and the source, Lindsay’s friend, also said that Lindsay will “absolutely freak out” if she ends up back in jail, because she “just can’t even fathom the idea that she is in this situation again, of facing significant jail time.” Really, she can’t fathom that idea? Not even a little bit?
