So it all started when Lindsay Lohan got into a car accident. That was bad, but honestly, nothing that couldn’t be recovered from. Then she started blaming everyone who wasn’t her. Pretty bad, but still a situation you can pull out of. Then it was discovered that, according to her insurance contract, she wasn’t even supposed to be driving. So now it’s getting to the point of complete messiness. And now, reports are going around saying that Lindsay lied to the police, saying that she wasn’t the one driving, which could constitute a violation of her parole. And just like that, the situation enters “this cannot possibly get worse” territory. TMZ reports:
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.
You gotta love how the moment Lindsay smells even the faintest whiff of scandal, her brain automatically immediately begins thinking up ways to lie about it. I mean seriously, why should she at this point? The California legal system has kinda proved that she can do whatever she wants and will be punished with, at the very worst, a five-minute walking tour of a minimum-security prison. “And here’s the room where inmates get to play with cuddly cats, and over there is the room made entirely out of fudge. Anyway, I think you learned your lesson. No more shoplifting for you!”
PS It turns out LiLo’s car had an open container of alcohol in the trunk …
