Lindsay Lohan tweets hitting man with her car a 'complete lie'
Actress Lindsay Lohan took to Twitter on Wednesday to deny allegations that she hit a man with her car outside a Hollywood club.
The incident occurred shortly before 1 a.m. at a parking lot in the 6500 block of Hollywood Boulevard, said Officer Norma Eisenman.
Lohan was surrounded by paparazzi and was trying to negotiate a U-turn in a parking lot when her car allegedly brushed the leg of the man, reportedly a manager at a nearby club.
"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," Lohan wrote on Twitter.
The man called police, who took down the information but did not make an official report because he was not injured.
Officers did not contact Lohan and the incident is not being considered a hit-and-run, Eisenman said.
