Lindsay Lohan 'smelt of alcohol'

20 September 2012, 16:00

Los Angeles - Lindsay Lohan smelt of alcohol "real bad" after her car reportedly hit a pedestrian in New York early on Wednesday, reports New York Daily News.

The former Disney actress was arrested for fleeing the scene of an accident. Her alleged victim Jose Rodriquez claims she was "slurring" her words after the incident took place.

"I saw this car come real quick and hit me. I was in so much pain. I fell to the side," Jose recalled the events to the New York Daily News.

"When she got out of the car, I asked, 'Why did you do that?' She said, 'You have to get out of the way.' She told me I have to move. She was slurring. She smelled like alcohol real bad," he told a reporter.

'We have to move the car'

Jose said one of the men in the car moved Lindsay from the driver's seat into the back and then told him there was "no problem".

Jose added: "He kept saying, 'We have to move the car,' and for me to move. They drove off, like it didn't matter."

However, Lindsay is said to have told her friends she feels she has been "set up" and thinks there's something "fishy" about her arrest.

Probation violation

The 26-year-old star claims she had no idea she had struck anyone and didn't know about the incident until she was arrested when she left the hotel.

Lindsay was booked for the misdemeanour offence of leaving the scene of an accident and released with a desk appearance ticket, meaning she did not have to pay bail before release.

Though the offence is a misdemeanour, it could trigger a probation violation in her jewellery theft case as one of the conditions of probation is that she obeys all laws.
