We have to admit, this hit-and-run nonsense is looking less and less like Lindsay Lohan's fault and more and more like someone is trying to take advantage of her!
To recap, a hookah lounge manager named Thaer Kamal alleged that he was hit by LiLo's Porsche last week while she was leaving the Sayer's Club, but his story is getting fishier as more details and eye witnesses come forward.
First he claimed he was fine, but after learning it was Ms. Lohan behind the wheel of the vehicle, he decided that the car struck his knee a little too hard and that he had trouble walking. Most recently, a woman has come forward to admit that there was never any contact between Lindsay's car and this man's body.
NOW sources are saying that both he and Lindsay are refusing to cooperate with investigators by not agreeing to an interview. That alone is pretty weird. If we got hit by someone who proceeded to peel off, we'd be pretty peeved and want to give the cops all the details they need to prosecute the dastardly driver.
Here is where things get inneresting and the tide really turns in Lindsay's favor. An insurance company investigator called Lindsay's insurance peeps up and believes that this Kamal guy is the same guy who is being investigated for 6 - 8 cases of insurance fraud!
Apparently he has a history of staging car accidents and filling fraudulent claims. He may be using a different alias too because the man the insurance company is after is named Amr.
Well, it's obvious he's trying to cash in because he's hired a lawyer who has already reached out to LiLo with a settlement demand. If this guy really WASN'T hit by her car, we hope she told the lawyer where he can stick his demands.
Either way, this couldn't have come at a worse time because Lindsay's final probation hearing is scheduled for next week and this trouble does NOT look good. We're crossing our fingers that this mess gets figured out sooner than later.
Good luck, gurl!
