Los Angeles: Troubled actress Linsday Lohan is planning to sue a man called Jose Rodriguez, who accused her of "Driving While Blotto".

Rodriguez claimed Lindsay struck him while she was driving a Porsche in New York.

The man said Lindsay was slurring and "smelled like alcohol real bad" at the time of the incident, reports

Police and others say Lindsay had not been drinking and alcohol was not a factor in the alleged incident.

Lindsay believes she could lose work if people think "she`s off the wagon", and so she is planning on suing Rodriguez for defamation.

"I`m tired of people lying just to score a quick paycheck," Lindsay said.
