The Liz & Dick actress Lindsay Lohan was arrested just after
midnight on Wednesday (September 19) for fleeing the scene of an
accident in New York when her car allegedly hit a pedestrian and after
it was revealed she had been at a Slash concert before the incident, he
took to twitter to defend her.
The musician wrote: "The situation last night w/Lindsey was a lame
paparazzi stunt. She didn't do anything. it's being blown out of
Lindsay's alleged victim, Jose Rodriquez, claims she was "slurring" her
words after the collision outside the city's Dream Hotel.
Jose said: "I saw this car come real quick and hit me. I was in so much
pain. I fell to the side.
"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."
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 pals she feels she has been "set
up" and thinks there's something "fishy" about her arrest.
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 at around 2.30am.
