A Manhattan cook, who was hit by Lohan, claims the “Mean Girls” star was “slurring” and “smelled of alcohol” after she clipped him with a Porsche — hurting his leg and his feelings.

“They acted like I was nothing,” said Jose Rodriguez (who has since been hospitalized and released with no visible injuries) of the starlet and her male companions. “That no one could touch her because she was rich and powerful.”

Police officials revealed that the actress bumped a man as she was parking her Porsche in front of her hotel at roughly 2 a.m.

One of Lindsay’s passengers reportedly got out of her car to check if the collision damaged her vehicle, before the group left the car and entered the hotel.

One of the men in the car moved Lohan from the driver’s seat into the back, he said.

“He kept saying, ‘We have to move the car,’ and for me to move,” he said. “They drove off, like it didn’t matter.”

Police officers arrived at the place of the car accident and Lohan was arrested as she was exiting the hotel about 30 minutes after the incident took place.

She was reportedly booked on a misdemeanor charge for leaving the scene of an accident. She has since been released, reports The Huffington Post.

The spokesperson for Lohan, Steve Honig, told reporters: “While some of the facts are still being gathered, it appears that this is much ado about nothing. We are confident this matter will be cleared up in the coming weeks and the claims being made against Lindsay will be proven untrue.”

Meanwhile, the actress claims that she had no idea she hit anybody and she was shocked when she came out and got arrested that she knew anything was going on.

According to TMZ, as for the story about one of the passengers in her SUV getting out of the car and checking for damages, she swears it never happened. Nobody ever got out of the car.

Lohan is calling the incident “really fishy” as the hit man didn’t appear to have any visible injuries and feels she’s the victim of a set up. She’s not going to let the incident go and is planning on fighting it to the end.

This isn’t the first time the starlet has been accused of a hit-and-run. Earlier this year, Lindsay was allegedly involved in a similar incident in Hollywood, but the “Parent Trap” actress, who has scandalous fame due to her  long court history, was never prosecuted due to the lack of a credible witness.

Lohan’s arrest comes just days after Lohan tweeted about the lack of “punishment” when it comes to her fellow child star Amanda Bynes’ recent slew of traffic violations.

“Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?” Lohan tweeted.
