The Lindsay Lohan saga just wont quit! Hours after LiLo pulled an “Amanda Bynes” in NY, the suspicious “victim” who claims Lindsay grazed his knee with her car while driving like 5 mph is speaking out.
The victim, Jose Rodriquez, a chef at Bottega restaurant at the Maritime hotel in Chelsea claims he was hit by Lindsay’s car in the driveway for The Dream Hotel in NYC and told NY Daily News that she was “slurring” her words and “smelled like alcohol.”
The reports from earlier today alleged that alcohol wasn’t involved and Lindsay was not given a Breathalyzer test, but Jose begs to differ.
He says he didn’t see her coming and the next thing he knew, he was on his side.
“I was in so much pain,” he alleges.
Then he says LiLo came out of her car and told him, “You have to get out of the way.”
“She was slurring,” says Jose, “She smelled like alcohol real bad.”
He then says that Lindsay simply drove away, “like it didn’t matter,” he says.
However, surveillance footage for The Dream Hotel says Jose is totally exaggerating his claim.
The surveillance video shows Lindsay’s car get close to Jose, but it’s not clear if she actually makes contact with him.
Two detectives viewing the footage are split on whether the car did or didn’t hit the guy.
The footage also shows Lindsay driving down a ramp and Jose running after her but he never gets close enough to talk to her. So when did he exchange those words and smell the alcohol on her breath?
This is all sorts of confusing. More details as this drama unfolds.
