The “Lindsay Lohan clipped a baby” story gets more complicated

lindsay_lohan_01_wenn2985946

These are some new photos of Lindsay Lohan making a paparazzi-friendly visit to a movie theatre last night. Isn’t this what everyone does? Wander around pantless, wearing sunglasses, and head to the movie theatre after calling the paparazzi? At night? Right? And maybe on the way to the theatre, you can hit a few babies. Speaking of, we have some addendums to the “Lindsay Lohan hit a baby while driving like a crackhead in her Maserati” story. Radar’s initial story yesterday had Lindsay being too cracked-out to look both ways before turning on a red, then hitting a baby in a stroller before driving off without even getting out of her Maserati. Then, later Friday, TMZ put up their version of what happened:

An eyewitness to the alleged Lindsay Lohan “hit-and-run” tells TMZ … the photogs who sold the after-the-fact video are lying. The eyewitness — a photographer — says Lindsay was leaving her apartment building Wednesday (not yesterday) and was turning onto Holloway Drive with a green light. The photog says Lindsay “ever-so-slightly tapped the stroller — like 1 mile an hour.”

The photog says Lindsay pulled over, asked the nanny pushing the stroller if everything was okay and was told everyone and everything was fine, so she drove off.

The story conflicts with the photogs who shot video after the incident. One of them — Brayan Jaime — told TMZ … Lindsay ran a red light and called the impact “a major hit” … causing 3 wheels on the stroller to leave the ground. Jaime says Lindsay fled the scene.

So far … no one has gone to the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Department to file a report.

[From TMZ]

So when Lindsay told Radar “I have no idea what you’re talking about” she was IN FACT LYING?!?!? You don’t say. So Lindsay knew exactly what Radar was talking about and now she and Mother Crackhead Dina are sitting around, thinking up fun stories for TMZ to print. Notice that even with TMZ’s flourishes, it doesn’t change the fact that A) Lindsay hit a motherf-cking baby and B) She didn’t even get out of her car to “check” on the baby or the nanny, and instead ended up driving off. Also: I love the inclusion in TMZ’s story that the light was green. Like just because Lindsay might have had the technical right-of-way, that means it’s totally okay that she clipped a baby.

Anyway, Radar one-upped TMZ’s story with yet another one:

Lindsay Lohan ‘saw’ the woman and child crossing the road before she clipped the stroller with her car, according to another eyewitness. After RadarOnline.com first reported that the troubled star had hit the stroller with her high powered car, Lohan denied any knowledge, saying “I don’t know what you are talking about.”

But now, another onlooker has come forward to confirm the event and says Lohan saw the woman and child crossing the road, but did not bother to stop.

“I pulled up next to Lindsay after I saw her knock the stroller,” said Austin Visschedyk, a photographer who was on the scene. “I said; Whoa, what the f*** are you doing?”

Lohan was momentarily speechless, according to Austin, before she replied: “Well, I saw them, but they didn’t move out of the way.”

RadarOnline.com had the exclusive interview with the first eyewitness, Brayan Jaime who described the chain of events.

“There was a woman pushing a kid in the stroller, maybe a two or three-year-old, crossing the street,” he said. “Lindsay took the red light and hit the stroller. It wasn’t super hard, but she made impact and hit them. Lindsay pulled to the right, stopped for two seconds, and then just kept going.”

Despite conflicting reports that Lohan was going a mere one-mile-an-hour when the incident took place, Jaime says she was going substantially faster.

“She was going at least 10-15 miles per hour,” said Jaime. “It wasn’t one mile an hour, that’s for sure.”

In fact, Lohan – who caused the four-wheeled stroller to tip up onto one wheel – even scared a man standing 10 feet away.

“There was a guy standing on the corner who jumped back when it happened,” recalled Austin. “He was clearly scared.”

Lohan was driving the Maserati she picked up the day she was released from rehab. But according to sources, she has now returned the car following the accident which happened Wednesday afternoon.

[From Radar]

Yep. I believe Radar’s sources. Just for that one quote alone, attributed to Lindsay: “Well, I saw them, but they didn’t move out of the way.” That sounds exactly like her, doesn’t it? Those sound like her crack thoughts and her crack words to me. Lindsay makes her own cracked-out right-of-way. Everyone must move to let the crackhead through. Seriously. People of Los Angeles: why are you still driving? You need to stay at home while this crackhead is on the streets. Although it is interesting that she returned the Maserati, isn’t it?

    What a moron! They’re not supposed to move out of the way you stupid crackhead! Pedestrians always have the right of way!!!

    She needs to go back to jail!!! Why isn’t this story getting any attention?

  2. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Is that coke residue on her Chanel purse?

  3. mojoman says:

    Ihave a bad feeling the next time she drives, somebody will REALLY get hurt..badly!

  4. malachais says:

    La Loca is back! and worse than ever hitting babies in strollers!

    btw, so cool that you post over the weekend! :)

  5. George says:

    Guys, be realistic! Did u see the baby & stroller video? Did they look like just having been hit by a car? Oh, but the gossip fire has to keep burning!

  6. Crash2GO2 says:

    “Well, I saw them, but they didn’t move out of the way.”

    We’re all going to die.

  7. Red Riding Hood says:

    Self-entitled self-absorbed maniac……

    One day she is going to kill or maim someone & she’ll still deny it was her fault

    hopeless

  8. Joseph says:

    There’s a BIG difference between ‘bumping’ into something & ‘almost bumping’. Nothing happened “nobody almost died”. Let’s give Lindsay a break!

  9. logan says:

    @Joseph, “Let’s give Lindsay a break.”
    How the HE@# many breaks does this twit need? 3 more? 9 more? How about 20 more. If she had been the “average citizen” she wouldn’t have gotten out of jail early, out of rehab early or been give all the breaks alloted her so far. She needs to give out a few breaks of her own. Like learning how to break in traffic.

  10. raincoaster says:

    Lindz, honey, don’t return it. Drop me a line on Twitter and I’ll come and get it and hide that mofo somewhere they’ll never be able to scrape the bumper for baby stroller paint and blood smears. No worries. And I’ll do it for nothing more than the cost of a first-class ticket to pick it up.

  11. JC126 says:

    Pedestrians do not always have the right of way. You’re supposed to hit the walk sign if there is one. It doesn’t make it OKAY to hit someone, but it’s no wonder people get hit, if they think they can just walk out in the street anytime. If you’re jaywalking, and someone accidentally hits and kills you, they’re not going to go to jail unless there are other crimes committed: speeding, leaving the scene, etc. This is a pet peeve of mine because the students at the university near my house wander out in the street randomly like cattle all the time.

  12. Crash2GO2 says:

    @Joseph: Where does it say she ‘almost’ bumped them? She BUMPED them you nitwit. Now go tell Lindsay you tried your best to cover her ass, but failed miserably.

  13. Smthyo says:

    No one finds it strange that there hasn’t been a police report? I guess the non paps walking by and all the other people stopped at the light must have been looking the other way.

  14. Joseph says:

    QCrash2GO2 You’d make a great detective. No doubt at all, the nanny & the stroller were BUMPED. The video of them being taken away by the rescue team is the best evidence ever!

  15. Lita says:

    Last person to defend a Lohan but this sounds really dodgy to me. All the witnesses have their occupation “photographer,” read ‘paps,’ automatically suspect with vested interests. The details are all oer the place and they cannot even agree on the day of the week! There is enough to show that Lindsay is a complete moron – me, I’m calling bollocks unless something else a little more substantial comes out.

  16. tooey says:

    Best case scenario is she drives herself off a cliff. And soon.

  17. Nikki says:

    STOP COMMENTING ON AND BELIEVING STORIES YOU CAN’T PROVE AND HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA ARE TRUE!! NONE OF YOU KNOW LINDSAY, THE PERSON WHO OWNS THIS SITE PROBABLY HAS NEVER MET HER SO YOU DON’T KNOW FIRST HAND WHAT SHE IS LIKE AT ALL! YOU ARE ALL CALLING HER A SUPPOSED ‘CRACKED OUT MESS’, WHO KNOW’S WHETHER IT’S TRUE BUT I’M SURE MOST PEOPLE WOULD BE DRIVEN A BIT CRAZY IF PEOPLE WHO DON’T EVEN KNOW THEM ARE SAYING SUCH HARSH THINGS AND BELIEVING/TELLING SUCH RIDICULOUS STORIES ABOUT THEM!

  18. coup de grazia says:

    yeah, i saw that story on tmz and thought, wow, well, it’s FINE then, green light, nobody dead, NO PROBLEM. makes total sense.

    and wtf, she returned the car?? does that mean she never really “bought” it to begin with? and if she did buy it, how does one return a maserati, exactly? just bring the receipt?

    to get lawyery: @JC – actually, if you hit someone, even when they’re crossing against the light, you will still go to jail. the crime of manslaughter (not murder) doesnt require intent. and you could still be sued civilly by the victim’s family, but the money they get from you might be reduced due to contributory negligence on part of pedestrian, but you’re still majorly liable.

  19. Jackson says:

    Thanks for the laugh there, Nikki. Better wake-up than my coffee.

    Now on to more important matters: what’s the deal with that purse? I like it!

  20. d says:

    apparently, Britney’s old manager — Randolph? Rudy? that GUY? I can’t remember his name — is now Lohan’s manager and “has her on lockdown” which may include things like getting her to return the car. He has his work cut out for him.

  21. Jazz says:

    I think this is TMZ and Radar trying to one up each other after the whole Mel/Octosana incident. Lindsay is still a crackhead mess though.

  22. Kaiser says:

    By the way, George, Joseph, Billkid & anneton were all the same person. They are now banned.

    *Dina has left the building*

  23. Whatever says:

    Why is this trick allowed to drive? She needs to hire a driver!

  24. Kiska says:

    This sounds like a job for Detective LaToya!

    Thanks Kaiser for kicking
    George, Joseph, Billkid & Anneton to the curb! (or Lindsay’s assistant in disguise)

  25. Bodhi says:

    @JC126 – I live in a college town/ tourist destination & I feel your pain. People literally walk into the middle of the street & stop to take pictures all the damn time & pretty much all you can do is slam on brakes. And then they have the nerve to yell at & flip off the locals. Its makes me stabby! And of course cops never give out jaywalking tickets… ARG!

    Did she actually BUY the Maserati? Or did someone just lend it to her for a few days?

    Edit: Excellent, thanks K!

  26. Ron says:

    You mean to tell me that she hit a stroller with paparazzi following and there was not photographic evidence of this event….from the paparazzi who could sell a photo like that for over a million dollars? Really that is what you are saying?

  27. Tia C says:

    “Well, I saw them, but they didn’t move out of the way.”

    ITA, Kaiser. That sounds like something her self-centered, entitled ass would say. If pedestrians don’t move out of her way fast enough she’ll just drive into them. Until she’s willing to take some driving lessons, GF needs to hire a driver for the indefinite future. Her skill set is obviously not behind the wheel.

  28. StylishElf says:

    Bah ha ha!!! Oh Kaiser *Dina has left the building* Effing Awesome!!!!! You get em girl!

  29. Mistral says:

    Lilo is a crazy crackhead, but I doubt this is true. I’m sure it would have been all over the “real news” and the woman would have been interviewed by police, or the paps who supposedly witnessed it (and posted everywhere) by now.

  30. original kate says:

    “We’re all going to die.”

    LMAO @ crash!

    maybe lindsay could give her schedule to the news channel in LA every morning, and they can announce it during the traffic report:

    “good morning, LA! we have some construction over on mulholland drive this morning, a backup on the freeway, and lindsay lohan will be driving on sunset blvd. around noon, so lock up your small children and pets. now, for weather…”

  31. la chica says:

    TMZ has to support Lindsay. she gave them the exclusive post-jail first pic. Harvey is deep in Hohan pockets. i believe Radar’s version.

  32. Kim says:

    People magazine has witnesseses that say she didn’t touch woman or kid and that the baby was already crying. So the paparazzi didn’t get pics of the supposed victims GMAB.

  33. Melissa says:

    Say she had a green light – that means the pedestrians also had a green light. You don’t have right-of-way to TURN on a light over pedestrians heading straight on the green.

  34. gillie says:

    Couple of things here:
    1) People who even “tap” a pedestrian with a car should stop and check on that pedestrian– nevermind it being an effin baby carriage.
    2) How is this not a parole violation? Isnt leaving the scene of an accident a crime?
    3) WHY DOESNT SHE JUST HIRE A DRIVER?! or call a taxi?! I mean, good sweet christ on a whole wheat cracker…!

  35. Kitten says:

    Yeah there are plenty of intersections like that in Boston, where drivers have a green light and peds have a walk sign. Drivers are supposed to yield to peds on turns. Of course, people jaywalk for a living around here…

  36. hellen says:

    “Pedestrians do not always have the right of way”

    If they are in a crosswalk they do, ESPECIALLY if they are crossing with the green pedestrian signal. And what woman with a baby in a stroller would be crossing AGAINST a light?

  37. Jello says:

    Okay this story sounds too messed up even for L.L. There are no photos, no police report, nothing, even though a photographer is the guy who “reported” this “story.” I’m beginning to feel certain the celeb media needs to keep the crazy Lohan story going for their own commercial needs.

  38. rob redstone says:

    PEDESTRIANS A-L-W-A-Y-S HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY!

    MORON!!

  39. Eileen says:

    This girl just INVITES sh!t to happen to her. I think the photog guy was embellishing some-but I believe she bumped the baby and probably asked the nanny if everyone was ok-the lady didn’t speak English and was freaked because she an illegal and just kept right on going. @Lindsay: dumbass, this is when you get OUT of the car to check on everyone since your car weighs a ton and they weigh roughly 150 lbs. She’s an entitled, spoiled mess!
    And the photog was probably just walking along to some filming destination and saw it happen which is why he filmed it late.

  40. santacruz says:

    FOREVER MORE SHE SHOULD BE KNOWN AS ‘THE IDIOT!’

  41. chris says:

    I just hope that when she crashes and burns, because it’s so inevitable, that the only person she hurts is herself. I used to feel sorry for her. She never seemed to have anyone sane in her corner, but she just seems like a self-entitled brat. Her parents can carry that burden for the rest of their lvies.

  42. man, if yall didnt hate on lindsay so much, have nothing to write about

  43. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    @Nikki/Kanye- THERE IS NO NEED TO YELL! You can make your point without all-caps-ing!

    You do not know Lidnsay either.

  44. kiki says:

    So, let me see if I get this. You think it’s all true because someone randomly quoted her as saying something and you think “That sounds exactly like her”

    Seriously? You DON’T KNOW THIS PERSON. I realize she lives her life in the public eye so you may THINK you do, but you don’t.

    That’s such an amazingly stupid thing to say.

    You don’t like her so you want to believe the shitty stories. That’s all this is. At least cop to that instead of saying “that sounds exactly like her”.
    Like you would know.

  45. Smthyo says:

    Wow Eileen. That was the funniest thing I’ve read in a while.

  46. Bodhi says:

    @ #40 ~ Now thats a dumb thing to say. There are plenty of other idiot celebs to harsh on!

  47. Blondie says:

    OMG!!! On reading these comments just how many people are Lindsay and Dina paying to support the cracked out baby car hitting mess on this site??!!

  48. LBees says:

    Um… just going to point this out, but in California pedestrians have the right of way…. and *even if they are crossing against a light* you are not allowed to hit them.

    Blonde: But… officer I had a green light! I mean, I saw them crossing but I figured since I had the green I could go.

    Officer: Lady, what? No!

  49. SammyHammy says:

    I am no LL defender by any means, but if this really happened, and if there were all these paps around, why aren’t we seeing videos/pictures of the event? Why hasn’t she been arrested?

    While I don’t doubt that something like this COULD happen with her, it really doesn’t sound like it DID happen. It just seems manufactured to me.

  50. LBees says:

    JC126… in some respects you are correct. It is certainly awe-inducing to me to see people walking right into traffic… And THEN have the nerve to give the stink-eye as you drive precariously close to hitting them.

    However, what you say about “Oops hit that jaywalker” and the driver not going to jail, that is just not true. The law looks at who has the technical right of way, but basically the judicial system will ask, “Was the driver acting in such a way that a reasonable person would have acted?”

    In other words, even if someone jaywalks, you should still be paying attention to the road, not fixing your jewelry or text messaging or talking on the phone. It’s a fine line, but basically if your target is human and it is daylight out, you should be more responsible than to hit them.

    That being said, there are a lot of times when walkers act so stupidly and against their own self interest (read: living!) that you really can’t blame the driver.

  51. Emily says:

    I’m torn on this. Complaining the pedestrian didn’t get out of her way sounds like Lindsay, but I find it hard to believe that none of the paps got a picture of it happening.

  52. Anon says:

    @18: No, the car was rental! And she returned it after she hit the stroller.
    Coincidence? Nope.

    In the state of CA, pedestrians ALWAYS have the right of way. ALWAYS. If there is a person in a crosswalk, and your vehicle enters that crosswalk, that is illegal, it doesn’t matter what color the light is, it doesn’t matter if that person is crossing against a red. PEDESTRIANS ALWAYS HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY.

    And, the only thing that Lindsay is known for in LA more than being a crackhead, is being involved in car accidents.

  53. JC126 says:

    You’re wrong, coup de grazie – killing a jaywalker is not necessarily “manslaughter”, it’s an accident. Of course the driver can’t be doing something wrong, and one is supposed to exercise caution while driving, and I don’t know anybody who would deliberately hit somebody. But I do know of several people who’ve accidentally hit and killed jaywalkers – including at a crosswalk, and they didn’t go to jail. The most recent case I know of, the girl darted out in front of traffic and was struck and killed, the driver had no way to stop.
    And believe me, it is devastating for the innocent driver when something like this happens. No one wants this to happen. So please be careful, pedestrians, and drivers.

  54. JC126 says:

    BTW, could someone please point out where i said it was okay for the driver not to be paying attention? Because at least one person has implied that I did so; I did not.

  55. SoulLovah says:

    idk, returning the car right after that incident is suspicious to me…

  56. GatsbyGal says:

    @Nikki – Typing in all caps make you look like a tinfoil-hat crazy person, okay? Get back on your meds.

  57. Crash2GO2 says:

    If you are a photog and you actually catch something like this on film, than you are very very lucky. It’s not like the guy camping out outside her apartment could keep his camera rolling on her garage exit 24/7 while he waits for her to appear. Sounds like (as usual) she shot out like a house a fire and the incident happened within seconds, since apparently she never really stopped at the exit (no need to look both ways!). And the nanny’s behavior tells me that *something* happened – she was looking after the car in nervous astonishment.

    And eyewitnesses are credible in a court of law. Just because there was no photo or video, doesn’t mean a judge would throw the case out. And it sounds like quite a few people saw it happen.

  58. journey says:

    sigh, i hope that the baby’s daddy turns out to be a head honcho of the l.a. underworld, and that unlike the justice system, he’s able to put the fear into l.l. and scare her straight. no horses head in her bed, just a sincere threat that she’ll sleep wit da fishes if she ever gets behind the wheel of a car again.

  59. Smthyo says:

    Crash2GO2 nervous astonishment, seriously?
    That’s hilarious. You’re right though, a lot of people saw her car leaving and none of them reported any thing.

  60. buffalobill says:

    Lindsay is in such deep shipwater if this is true at all!

    Why can’t she stay at home, ever??

  61. Chris says:

    Pedestrians’ always have the right of way? Whenever people walk in front of my car on a red man signal I just keep driving and if they freak out (as they’re jumping out of the way) I just point at the signal and scream “It’s red, Brother!” I learnt that from a friend of mine who does the same thing. But I draw the line at babies in prams.

  62. coup de grazia says:

    @JC – Manslaughter *IS* an accident. Dude, I’m a lawyer and have been (unfortunately) working on criminal stuff/reading the penal code lately. Killing a jaywalker is an accident *and* manslaughter. Certainly, there are instances of idiots running into traffic and being killed by people driving responsibly. I also know of someone who hit and killed a little girl after she just ran into the street out of nowhere and the driver is/was devastated – - In these cases, a jury may or may not(rightfully) not convict them and/or they may or may not be sentenced to jail (this is why we have a jury system b/c these things are rarely black and white) – - however, causing another person’s death, without intent (such as, say, an accident) is manslaughter.

    Also, pedestrians, even when they’re wrong (crossing against a light, for ex), they’re right. This is a strict liability thing, the policy behind it being that we want drivers to be extra careful – and, cars are 2 tons of steel and people are 150 pounds of flesh, so it’s pretty clear who will lose that fight.

    “You’re wrong, coup de grazie – killing a jaywalker is not necessarily “manslaughter”, it’s an accident. Of course the driver can’t be doing something wrong, and one is supposed to exercise caution while driving, and I don’t know anybody who would deliberately hit somebody. But I do know of several people who’ve accidentally hit and killed jaywalkers – including at a crosswalk, and they didn’t go to jail. The most recent case I know of, the girl darted out in front of traffic and was struck and killed, the driver had no way to stop.
    And believe me, it is devastating for the innocent driver when something like this happens. No one wants this to happen. So please be careful, pedestrians, and driver

  63. coup de grazia says:

    p.s. @JC – I’m not trying to start a thing and I should’ve been clearer rather than saying “they will go to jail”, I should have said “they will technically be guilty of manslaughter”. It’s true, you’re right, in some of these jaywalker cases, it’s really pretty much the jaywalker’s fault and a jury will not convict or will convict but with a sentence of probation or something – and if there’s a civil case, as I mentioned above, the jaywalker’s family may not be able to recover b/c of contributory negligence. But, as a black letter law rule, I’m just saying that intent doesn’t matter for a manslaughter charge. You could be sitting in your house minding your own business, throw a rock out the window into your rock garden, hit someone trespassing on *your* property, kill them, and still be guilty of manslaughter.

  64. teri says:

    I don’t buy the story of her seeing, then hitting the stroller. Lindsay isn’t a killer by any means, why is it some want her hung in their front yards? Going to rehab and getting clean isn’t good enough? What’s next helicopters flying overhead her car and making it another Britney S. Jeeze get the heck off the cross people need the firewood.

  65. Crash2GO2 says:

    @Chris: Yeah, you might think that’s funny, but just wait until a cop catches you at it. Basically you are threatening a human being with your car. Doesn’t matter who has the right of way – pedestrians always come out the losers in collisions with cars. That is why you are supposed to exercise reasonable judgement, which it sounds like you are incapable of doing. So the next time you scare someone with your car, and say, they suffer a heart attack (or maybe you even hit them) you’ll be found guilty of manslaughter.

    Our friends don’t always set us good examples.

  66. Crash2GO2 says:

    @Smthyo (Dina, whoever): This article is full of eyewitness accounts of what happened. They are reporting it. Unfortunately just not to the police.

  67. Smthyo says:

    @Crash2G02 Are you sure you read the article? It quotes two paps. I don’t get how that equals “full of eyewitness accounts” but to each their own. And why do you think no one, not the non paps walking by or any of the drivers in the other cars at the light have reported anything?

  68. BethL says:

    I believe TMZ over Radar. If it was as serious as Radar is making it, why didn’t anybody report it, including the woman hit? It’s extremely bizarre and suspicious that Radar was there and taping yet they don’t have the accident on tape. How is that possible?

  69. Missfit says:

    I’d like to see her dumb ass driving in the ghetto side of town and “almost hit a child”, she would get her ass BEAT and dragged out of the car. I’m NOT wishing it upon her, but that is what most likely what would happen if a stupid broad like her pulled a stunt like that. There are plenty times even little kids run into the streets in a neighborhoods or what not and people driving have to be careful, they can’t just be like…”Oh, well, oops, ya, I saw them, but THEY didn’t get out of my way.” It doesn’t matter, your ass will still get fucked for hitting a child, even ALMOST hitting a child, either way, IT’S BAD.

  70. aenflex says:

    F*ck the right of way people. It’s a bloody stroller, in a crosswalk. Red or green, I’m gonna let it pass before I hit the gas.

  71. Shawna says:

    @Coup de grazia – thanks for clarifying.

    And I am interested in the theory that perhaps the lady was afraid if she made a legal fuss her citizenship would be questioned.

  72. Crash2GO2 says:

    @Smthyo: I am going to ask you to reread the article and get your fingers ready for counting.

    Witnesses:

    1. The nanny
    2. Brayan Jaime
    3. Austin Visschedyk
    4. The man standing 10 feet away

    Please make sure *you* read before taking me to task for not reading.

    Lesson over.

  73. Smthyo says:

    @Crash2GO2 Yea not quite. The woman and the other supposed witness are not quoted, they give no eye witness accounts. The only ones who do are the two paps. And you didn’t answer the question. Why do you think absolutely no one has reported this to the police?

  74. beebee says:

    In case it hasn’t been mentioned before:
    PEDESTRIANS ALWAYS ALWAYS HAVE THE RIGHT AWAY. No matter how annoyed you are at them. Just sit in your car and wait. Patience is a virtue.

  75. Chris says:

    @Crash, fair enough. Although it’s never been my intention to hit anyone (and I haven’t) the heart attack angle was something I hadn’t thought of. I’ll curtail my highway high jinks as of now.

  76. Crash2GO2 says:

    @Smytho: I don’t know why no one has reported it beyond the pap claiming he ‘did not want to get involved’. But no one needs to report it if it was caught on a traffic camera. Your original assertion that there were no witness except the two paps is incorrect.

  77. Syko says:

    I’m sitting with my jaw hanging open over the people who just keep going and make pedestrians jump out of the way and point out the red light to them. A pedestrian of any size has no defense against a car of any size. Have those of you who smugly insist that a pedestrian should get out of your way ever tried to cross a busy street on a walk light? You poise yourself, ready to leap, and the second the light turns you start hurrying and you get across about one lane before the light turns, so what are you supposed to do about the other 7 lanes? And that’s if you’re lucky and the person who’s in the right lane approaching you doesn’t slide right on through the red light, cell phone in one hand, Starbucks in the other, and driving with their elbows. Calm down and let the pedestrians continue living, okay?

    Crash2G02: Oh dear. Let’s look back at your first post that I responded to. You said “This article is full of eyewitness accounts of what happened.” You seem to be confusing eyewitness accounts and witnesses. They are not interchangeable. A witness is someone who sees an event and can attest to it. An eyewitness account is someones description of that event. If you go back and read the two Radar articles you will see that as I said there are only two eyewitness accounts given, both by paps.

    I hope that helps you understand your mistake.

    As to your hypothetical, you seem to be reaching a little. We’ll see what happens but I hope you won’t be holding your breath waiting.

    I read that the reason there hadn’t been a police report filed is that the woman pushing the stroller most likely didn’t want the police involved. Maybe she knew she was jaywalking, maybe she has an outstanding arrest warrant, maybe she’s here illegally, or there could be many other reasons. There are tons of reasons why she wouldn’t want to report the incident.

    As for Lindsay, I’m so over her it isn’t even funny. She used to be such a good actress and was so sweet and pretty, but now her attitude and escapades have colored badly anything good I used to think about her.

    1. Remember, Lindsay has a history of hitting a human being and leaving the scene. Her biggest arrest occurred after she ran over somebody’s foot. Not only did she not help that person – who was African American. Later, when the police stopped her for reckless driving and possession, she said something along the lines of “It’s the black kid’s fault.” In other words, this is not the first time Lindsay has hit a person and just not cared.

    2. If this story weren’t true, Lindsay would be threatening to sue all of the witnesses – who have given their full names – for slander. And she would win. She isn’t because – as usual – Lindsay is lying.

    3. It sounds like the nanny didn’t report the incident because a) the baby wasn’t injured and b)she is worried about losing her job for not protecting the child c)like many nanny’s in L.A. – I live here – she may not be in this country legally and could be concerned about contacting the police d)she may rightly believe that the police won’t take the word of a Latina nanny over that of a famous white actress.

    4. MY GOD, SHE HIT A BABY!!! AND THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME SHE HAS HIT ANOTHER PERSON!! WHY DOES SHE HAVE A DRIVER’S LICENSE? ONE DAY, SHE IS GOING TO KILL SOMEBODY!!! AND HOW DID UCLA – ONE OF THE BEST FACILITIES IN THE COUNTRY AND THE BEST IN THE STATE – RELEASE HER?

    Ha! The sheer stupidity of most internet commentators never ceases to amaze me. But at least they’re good for a laugh.

  82. Cam says:

    The comments are better than the article itself. Thanks for the laugh.

    Let’s put this to rest: WTF did the nanny with the stroller say?!

    I hate this self-entitled little cougar cub but if the nanny cannot cash in by pressing charges then she is probably telling the truth. For once.

    @Smytho: Oh darn, you caught me! You’re right, I should have said there were multiple witnesses and TWO eyewitness accounts.

    That certainly makes it all better for Lindsay, doesn’t it?

    rotfl!

    @Crash2GO2: Aww I’m kind of sad you finally realized your mistake, it’s cute how you lack reading comprehension and confuse simple concepts. Although it makes it hard to take anything you say seriously.

  87. Crash2GO2 says:

    Awww, Smytho, who doesn’t make the ocassional mistake? I have no problem admitting it. This board moves fast and I’ll admit I’ve got a lot going on, so sometimes I’m not as clear as I’d like to be, nor state things as clearly as I’d like to.

    You don’t have to take me seriously. Feel free to skip my posts from now on. It’s just a gossip column after all.

  88. Smthyo says:

    @Crash2GO2: You don’t have to apologize. Like I said I thought it was adorable watching you struggle to understand something so simple.

    And why would I ignore your comments, why would I ignore any of the comments? They are the best part of this place.

    Smthyo, You are clearly so much better and smarter than everyone else on this site. Surely, you must have more important matters to attend to than slumming with the likes of us? You’ve already dazzled with your superior reading comprehension skills.
