Lindsay Lohan lied to police about the accident

In a not-so-shocking turn of events that pretty much everyone saw coming, while at the hospital after the accident she got into on Friday, Lindsay Lohan lied like a motherfucker to Santa Monica Police — or as Lindsay calls them “Frank, Bob” — and said she wasn’t driving. Which you’re not supposed to do to police, I guess. No biggie. It’s not like she’s still on probation or anything. I kid, I kid — of course she is, until 2014. From TMZ:

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.

Witnesses also say they saw Lindsay climb out of the passenger side of the car after the accident, so, like a true sociopath, she pretty much knew she was going to lie about the whole thing within 10 seconds of her life flashing before her eyes. Because of the accident, producers had to scrap a bunch of daytime scenes they were planning on filming on Friday (“We are just trying to minimize the loss“) — a loss that’s surely going to affect the insurance coverage of the production. At this point, it’s probably cheaper to insure a Humvee in Afghanistan than this fucking film. There would have been less chaos if a wild tiger had been cast as Elizabeth Taylor instead of Lindsay.
