Lindsay Lohan: Police found no evidence that she hit club manager
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lindsay Lohan won’t face prosecution over a nightclub manager’s claims that the actress struck him with her sportscar due to lack of evidence and doubts about his credibility, prosecutors decided Friday.
Police had asked the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office to review whether Lohan should be charged with leaving the scene of an accident, but the office determined there was insufficient evidence to pursue a case. Police interviewed the manager, reviewed surveillance footage and looked at Lohan’s Porsche and found no evidence that an accident had occurred.
Thaer Kamal, manager of the Hookah Lounge in Hollywood, accused Lohan of striking him with her Porsche early on March 14, just two weeks before the actress’ supervised probation ended. A charge evaluation worksheet noted that although Kamal called 911, he refused medical treatment at the scene and told police he had been grazed by Lohan’s car along his right leg.
He refused to cooperate on follow-up interviews until roughly two weeks later, when he gave detectives a photo of a bruised left knee and appeared for the interview with his left knee bandaged, according to the prosecutor’s summary.
“There is no direct evidence to show Lindsay Lohan or anyone else struck victim Kamal,” Deputy District Attorney John Gilligan wrote. Victim Kamal’s changed story and lack of cooperation with law enforcement make him a non-credible witness.”
Kamal has been represented by attorney Mark Geragos, who did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.
Lohan’s spokesman Steve Honig declined comment on the decision.
Lohan, 25, remains on informal probation for taking a necklace without permission last year and is attempting to revive her career. She will play Elizabeth Taylor in a television movie about the actress’ love affair with co-star Richard Burton.
