First the good news: The pedestrian who Lindsay Lohan allegedly hit with her Porsche this morning may not be as badly injured as he claims. Yes, the guy reportedly was hospitalized after the incident, but TMZ has learned that video surveillance of the entire crash and the aftermath may actually help LiLo's case.
Now here's the bad news: This is probably just the beginning of more headline grabbing troubles for the star and here's why.
Her boozy, troubled, scandal-plagued past has made her the perfect target for fake charges and con men looking for a big pay day. According to TMZ, the footage taken outside of New York City's Dream Hotel shows Lindsay's car moving very, very slowly. As it gets close to the pedestrian walkway, it's unclear if her vehicle even made contact with her alleged victim. In fact, sources told TMZ a detective that viewed the tape felt that she just "grazed" the back of the guy's leg and the other cop didn't think she bumped him AT ALL. The beleaguered star told friends she didn't even know she hit someone. Now it's rumored that perhaps she didn't.
Even before this, a sketchy patteren had emerged when it came to accusing Lindsay of crimes. Just a few weeks back she was implicated in a jewelry theft. She became a suspect after $100,000 in watches and accessories were snatched from a Hollywood Hills home where she had partied. Apparently there were witnesses who said they saw her and her assistant allegedly commit the crime. She was saved when the owner of the house later recanted his claim, saying nothing was taken after all.
Underneath all of these scandalous headlines, isn't it possible that Lindsay is really on the right track? Perhaps she is sincerely trying to get her life together, but her past keeps getting in the way. Either way, I doubt this will be the last time she is accused of something.
Do you think Lindsay is the target of scammers?
