Police Say Lindsay Lohan Lied At Scene Of Car Accident: [ send to a friend ]
Lohan was briefly hospitalized following the crash which saw the Porsche totalled after slamming into the back of an 18-wheeler.
However, the actress told Santa Monica police that her assistant had been driving and she was simply a passenger in the car.
Her story didn't hold up when the assistant admitted that the actress had been the one operating the vehicle. Both Lohan and her passenger had climbed out of the car's passenger side, according to witnesses.
It is a crime to provide false information to law enforcement so if police treat it as a criminal charge, they could hold Lohan accountable for the lie.
That would not only cause a dent in her "comeback" but would be considered a violation of her probation in her shoplifting case.
