Lindsay Lohan lied to police when she told them she was NOT driving the Porsche that she parked in the back of a semi on the Pacific Coast highway on Friday, and wouldn’t you know it — turns out lying to the cops is illegal in California. Which means she just violated her probation, which means her probation could now be revoked, except we all know that isn’t going to fucking happen. She’s a celebrity! TMZ says:
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.
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 [said that] 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.
She actually climbed over the console to exit on the passenger side. How very clever. “Who was driving the car?” they’ll all ask, stroking their beards with befuddlement “It appeared there were two passengers, yet NO driver! How can this be?!” I’m honestly surprised that she didn’t tell the police that the Porsche has a mind of its own and referred them to Exhibit A, Herbie: Fully Loaded with stock footage of a black Porsche shopped in all the wide angle exterior shots.
In a bikini for some stupid short film that nobody will ever see:
