Lindsay Lohan - Lindsay Lohan's Alleged Hit-and-run Victim Speaks Out

The pedestrian who was reportedly struck by Lindsay Lohan's car in her latest hit-and-run case has accused the actress of slurring her words and reeking of alcohol during a verbal confrontation after the accident.

The troubled Mean Girls star was driving her Porsche Cayenne into a hotel car park in Manhattan, New York when she collided with Jose Rodriguez as he crossed a walkway, allegedly hitting his knee.

Reports suggest a passenger in the car inspected the damage as Lohan walked into the nearby Dream Hotel, where she was attending an event.

The victim reported the incident to police and the actress was arrested outside the venue in the early hours of Wednesday (19Sep12). She was booked for leaving the scene of the incident and was subsequently released without bail after being handed a desk appearance ticket.

Rodriguez was admitted to the nearby Bellevue Hospital, where he was treated for torn tendons, and the chef has now spoken out about the run-in, insisting he did not recognise Lohan at the time of the collision.

He remembers detecting the smell of booze during a brief conversation he had with Lohan immediately following the accident and says, "I asked, 'Why did you do that?' She said, 'You have to get out of the way.' She told me I had to move. She was slurring. She smelled like alcohol real bad... I didn't know who she was until people told me. I don't know why she couldn't just do the right thing."

New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly tells the New York Daily News Lohan was not thought to have been intoxicated at the time of her arrest, although cops did not perform a Breathalyzer test.

The actress' father Michael Lohan has since hit back at Rodriguez's comments and given his support to Lindsay, who has battled drink and drug issues in recent years, claiming, "I think this is all a setup. I love my daughter and I believe her 100 per cent."

If the 26 year old is convicted of the misdemeanour offence, it could constitute a violation her probation following the theft of a necklace from a jewellery store in Venice, California last year (11).
