Lindsay Lohan says she did not ‘scrape’ man with her car

With less than two weeks to go until her probation effectively ends, Lindsay Lohan has been accused of grazing a man’s knee with her car, then driving away. The actress called the accusation as a “complete lie” on Twitter.

Police told the Associated Press that paparazzi surrounded Lohan’s car outside of a Hollywood club early Wednesday, as she attempted to drive away. A man who works at a nearby Hookah Lounge says the car grazed his knee.

Lohan responded to this claim on Twitter:

Scrape? This is all a complete lie. I've been at community service. Last night, I attempted to wish a friend happy birthday, which I didn't even get to do because I was freaked out by all of the paparazzi. These false accusations are absurd.

Indeed, Sgt. Mark Ro told the AP that a police report wasn’t taken because the man wasn’t injured. A woman who said she was an eyewitness told TMZ that Lohan did not hit the man or a car.

Lohan’s publicist told the AP, “We are confident this matter will be cleared up in the next few days.”

The actress, who recently hosted “Saturday Night Live” to mixed reviews, will appear in court March 29 for her final probation hearing. Judge Stephanie Sautner told Lohan at her penultimate court appearance in February that after this next hearing, “all you have to do is obey all laws.”
