Lindsay Lohan Not Guilty of Hit and Run
Hours after the hit-an-run case was brought to the LA District Attorney’s Office, a conclusion was announced that stated that there was no direct evidence that showed Lindsay Lohan hit the manager of Hollywood’s Hookah Lounge with her car and drove off.
Thaer Kamal, the manager of the Hookah Lounge, filed a complaint last month that accused Lohan of hit-and-run last month. According to the District Attorney’s report, there was no evidence that anyone hit Kamal at all.
The District Attorney’s report stated that the alleged victim Kamal changed his story and didn’t cooperate with law enforcement officers, which made him a non-credible witness. The video evidence showed no signs of collision. There was also no signs of damage to any vehicle as well as other witnesses, which made it impossible to prove the hit-and-run case beyond reasonable doubt.
The LAPD detectives gave their investigation to the District Attorney’s Office after they conducted interviews as well as reviewed the surveillance tape of the area where Lindsay Lohan supposedly hit Kamal as she drove away from the club.
According to sources, the case against Lohan had lots of holes and there wasn’t enough evidence to prove was committed. Despite her legal troubles in the past few years, the actress completed her probation in March. Judge Stephanie Sautner told her to live her life in a more mature way and stop nightclubbing. She was also told to focus on her work.
Now that she’s clear of the hit-and-run charge, Lindsay Lohan can focus on her upcoming Lifetime movie Liz & Dick, where she will play Elizabeth Taylor. Filming for the biopic will begin June 4 but there’s still a big piece missing from the production. The producers are still searching for someone to play Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor’s fourth husband. There are still no takers for the role.
