When Lohan was in the hospital getting checked out after the accident, cops from the Santa Monica Police Department paid her a visit.

According to the sources, Lohan told the cops that she was a passenger in the Porsche and her assistant was driving, but her lie was caught later after the assistant told police that she was behind the wheel, reported.

Police are writing up a report that will include her lie. It’s a crime to provide false information to a police officer.

In addition, lying to the cops could trigger a probation violation in her previous shoplifting case, which means she faces the possibility of jail on 2 accounts.

According to eyewitnesses, after the crash Lohan and her assistant both got out of the car on the passenger side, which means she had to climb over the console. It appears she had concocted the lie almost immediately after impact.
