In a truly shocking turn of events, it has been revealed that Lindsay Lohan has broken the law. This means that her probation could be revoked, which means that she could go to jail. Again.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Lindsay Lohan lied to cops Friday by telling them she was NOT driving the Porsche that slammed into a truck on the Pacific Coast Highway, and as a result she could be prosecuted and her probation could be revoked.
Our sources say, when Lindsay was in the hospital getting checked out after the accident, cops from the Santa Monica Police Dept. paid a visit. Lindsay told police she was a passenger in the Porsche and her assistant was driving. But the lie didn’t stick because later Lindsay’s assistant told police Lindsay was behind the wheel.
We’re told police are writing up a report that will include Lindsay’s lie. It’s a crime to provide false info to a police officer. In addition, lying to police could trigger a probation violation in her shoplifting case, which means she faces the possibility of jail on 2 fronts.
Several eyewitnesses at the scene tell TMZ, after the crash Lindsay and her assistant both got out of the car on the passenger side, which means Lindsay had to climb over the console. It appears Lindsay had concocted the lie almost immediately after impact.
Now we know why Lindsay’s lawyer Shawn Holley was rushing to the hospital. She knew police were interviewing her client. Unfortunately for Lindsay, Holley got there a little too late.
Oh, if I had a nickel for every time I wrote a story about how Lindsay could possibly go to jail. It always goes like this: Lindsay does something ridiculous that would send any other person straight to jail, there’s a big fuss about how Lindsay is going to jail, and then Lindsay never goes to jail. And that’s why she does these things, because she never, ever learns.
In other Lindsay news, James, the lovable truck driver that Lindsay hit with her car? He means business. He finally went to a doctor yesterday, two days after the accident, and he got a lawyer. I would say that James is just trying to get some money out of Lindsay, but I don’t know. He seemed genuine in his interview with TMZ, and when I was in a car that got rear-ended, it took me a couple of days to get to a doctor. Like James, I felt fine at first, but then my neck made it very clear that it was not happy. Or who knows, maybe he is just trying to get paid. Could you really blame him?
