It seems celebrities driving clumsily is the new celebrities driving drunk. First Amanda Bynes made headlines for multiple hit-and-runs, which she says were not drinking-related. And now, an allegedly sober Lindsay Lohan—who seemed to be getting her life on track—may have her probation revoked for her involvement in a (sober) car accident. On Friday, Lohan's Porsche crashed in to a truck, with the truck driver claiming: “She came over and hit the back of the truck. Then the car pulled up on the sidewalk.” Cops confirmed that the 25-year-old starlet had not been drinking—as many suspected—at the time of the accident; but she's stirred up trouble by lying to police, claiming that her assistant was the one who crashed the car, and not herself. When her assistant was questioned separately, she said that it was Lohan behind the wheel. Witnesses say the actress and her assistant both exited the crashed vehicle on the passenger side, which is no help to Lohan’s case. Lying to a police officer is a crime in California, and law enforcement plans to include Lohan's lie in their report. The actress is now in danger of getting her probation revoked and could even do jail time if found guilty. Back in March, Lindsay completed her probation following two DUI cases, and is now on unsupervised probation for her shoplifting case. She's been working hard to make a career comeback and is currently filming the Elizabeth Taylor biopic Liz & Dick. She claims to be sober and a "home-body" lately—although evidently the once-infamous party girl still finds it hard to leave home with causing a ruckus.
