LOS ANGELES (AP) - Lindsay Lohan said Wednesday that allegations that her car grazed a man’s knee outside a Hollywood nightclub are “a complete lie.”

Lohan went straight to her 3 million Twitter followers to respond to the latest in a long-line of car-related troubles for the “Mean Girls” actress and recent “Saturday Night Live” host.

“This is all a complete lie. I’ve been at community service,” Lohan tweeted on her official account. “These false accusations are absurd.”

According to police, Lohan’s black Porsche was surrounded by paparazzi outside the club at about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday. The man told officers her sports car grazed his knee outside the club.


Lohan drove off and a police report wasn’t taken because the man, an employee of the Hookah Lounge near the club, wasn’t hurt, Los Angeles police Sgt. Mark Ro said.

The 25-year-old starlet was trying to make a U-turn outside the Wilcox Avenue club.

“Space was tight,” the sergeant said, adding that Lohan may have nudged the lounge employee’s parked car, believed to be a Corvette, but it wasn’t damaged.

“He came out and said, `Don’t hit my car,’” Ro said. “She was making a multipoint U-turn and photographers were in her way.”

The sergeant said he didn’t know who called police, but Lohan was gone when officers arrived.

“We did not take a report for hit-and-run,” Ro said. “We didn’t go looking for her.”

TMZ.com first reported the incident.

Lohan and her publicist Steve Honig said she was trying to get to a friend’s birthday party at the club, but she turned around when she was mobbed by photographers and never got out of her car.

“I attempted to wish a friend happy birthday, which I didn’t even get to do because I was freaked out by all of the paparazzi,” Lohan said on Twitter.

Honig said she and her Porsche did not make contact with anyone as she left.

“At no point was there ever any indication that her car hit anyone or anything,” Honig said in a statement. “We are confident this matter will be cleared up in the next few days.”
