Lindsay Lohan’s latest run-in on the roadway could send the oft-incarcerated former child star marching back to court.
Lohan — who is currently filming the Lifetime biopic Liz and Dick — could be heading back to jail after allegedly lying about her car accident last weekend. The actress told police that her assistant was behind the wheel of her Porsche when it slammed into an 18-wheeler-truck on the Pacific Coast Highway in Los Angeles on Friday. The collision sent Lindsay and her staffer to the hospital with minor injuries.
The assistant, however, insists that LiLo was the driver. And that little alleged fib could cause the troubled starlet mayjah trouble with the Probation Office. If Lindsay is charged with making false statements to police, her probation for that infamous shoplifting episode in 2011 could be revoked, subject the notorious “Mean Girl” to even more jail time.
Word ’round the blogosphere has it that Lindsay’s assistant removed a mysterious pink bag from the Porsche right after the accident. She later told the driver of the truck they hit not to mention it to the media.
Meanwhile, Lindsay insists that faulty brakes are at the center of the debacle.
“Lindsay is sticking with the ‘truck cut me off!!!’ story, but with a twist, she claims she slammed on the brakes, but nothing.”
The trucker involved in the incident, identified only as James, initially said he was fine. He has since hired a lawyer and is set to seek damages from the star. James apparently consulted a physician over the weekend, who confirmed he was injured.
And you know what that means: All together now “Punitive damages!”
